Trendwatching.com Marketing has finally become a conversation. Not, in most cases, as was intended, BETWEEN corporations and consumers (that would make too much sense), but rather a global conversation involving millions of consumers ABOUT corporations.

Copyright Buzzer 2008 Confidential In 2008, Word of Mouth Marketing agency Buzzer launched Unilever’s new Small & Mighty detergent in the Benelux. 3000 Buzzers were employed, who received BuzzKits with samples and special BuzzTools. Mindshare executed indepth research on the impact of the campaign. Four groups were compared: 1) a controlgroup that was only ‘exposed’ to traditional advertising. 2) A sampling group, that received a sample from Unilever directly. 3) the ‘Buzzees’, people that were buzzed and received a sample from a Buzzer and 4) the Buzzers. The graphs below show the (indexed) differences in buying intention between these groups. Factor 1,75 – 4 higher
