Buzz 1: word of mouth. Social infectiousness. Jibber jabber. Call it what you will. Bzz Agent have been going for a while Stateside and have recently started up in the UK. Does it work? Well, as Kevin Keegan once said, “if you don’t buy a ticket you can’t win the raffle.” (How we miss his words of wisdom). So I signed up. And they encourage Bzz Agents to have full disclosure so here it is. I’ll be updating my bluurb here with news and events. So far I’ve been diligently completing surveys a plenty to try and get some action. Agent status: awaiting orders.
Buzz 2: Matt Dickman does a weekly round up on his Techno Marketer site with Buzz Friday. Why do I like this? 1) a round up of what’s interesting this week in marketing, technology world. 2) It has video! I particularly like his sign on/off (cunningly varied by week), “this is Matt Dickman from Techno Marketer” – he could be on the BBC! Perhaps he could introduce characters from the big bookcase behind him? Or maybe that’s the 2 pints of lager starting to take effect. Matt has some compelling thoughts and also pops up with good commentary on a lot of the blogs I read, like this comment to the dearly departed from Digitas world, Greg Verdino (good luck @ Crayon, Greg).
Buzz 3: Jeff Jarvis’ Buzz Machine
And here’s the two pints of lager. And you’ll notice I was doing work by annotating an analytics deck, the blow softened by an unseen Thai Green Curry from Prince Arthur, Eversholt St, London.
