Know and Tell - Free Stuff
Before I was a Nurse, I spent about 10 years in the field of Advertising. To help our clients with campaigns for new products, we often hosted "focus groups". These focus groups consisted of actual human bodies driving to our office to watch a presentation and tell us what they thought.
Wow! Things have changed!!! Sites like Vocalpoint and Pinecone are essentially Web-based focus groups. They allow companies to gain valuable feedback from thousands of consumers very quickly and relatively cheaply. They also allow us consumers the opportunity to try new products for free!!!
I just discovered Know and Tell. This program was created by Fleishman-Hillard, a very reputable ad agency with 80 offices all over the world, including one here in KC! No, I never worked for them, but know people who do. One of Money Saving Mom's readers reports receiving greeting cards from Hallmark for participating in a survey.
I just signed up, hope you do too!
Thanks, Money Saving Mom!
