Last June a market research, well maybe it’s better to call them a Buzz Marketing company, got in touch with me and offered me a free Nokia smart multi-media phone.
All I had to do to get the phone was answer a survey a few months later, and just openly talk about the phone to people I encountered or on my blog. I could say whatever I wanted – whether I loved it or hated. The company was just trying to generate some buzz for Nokia and for the particular cell phone model.
I do like the phone btw, it’s a Nokia 6682. I’m still using it. Free is good. It always is!
Now, this same company has contacted me again.
They’d like to get in touch with people in the Toronto or Montreal area. If you have a health related blog where you discuss health matters, nutrition, weight loss etc and you live in Toronto or Montreal let me know and I’ll put you in touch with the company.
This is specifically what my contact is looking for:
Iâ€™m currently working on an interesting word of mouth marketing programme that involves a health food product, and Iâ€™m interested in speaking with individuals who are enthusiastic about fitness, eating well, and pursuing a healthy and active life style â€“ and who host a blog on any of these topics.
Specifically, Iâ€™m looking for people who:
Â· are 25-54 years old
Â· live in Toronto or Montreal
Â· are actively pursuing a healthy lifestyle
Â· are very socially active and engaged within peer (personal and professional) social circles
Â· Prone to spreading new health information to friends and/or clients
Â· Host a blog that focuses on fitness and activity, healthy living, or nutrition
If you fall into this category let me know and I’ll put you in touch with the marketing coordinator.
