My Top 10 WOMM Sites of 2013

What is WOMM?

"Oral or written recommendation by a satisfied customer to the prospective customers of goods or services. Considered to be the most effective form of promotion, it is also called word of mouth advertising which is incorrect because, by definition, advertising is a paid and non-personal form of communication."

** NOTE:  As a reminder, all of these opportunities are 100% Free, all of the sites are free to join and every one of them provides FREE SHIPPING! Any site asking you for money in order to obtain a FREE product is not legitimate**


When I started telling everyone via this blog, Facebook, twitter, and Instagram that I was receiving FREE products in exchange for my honest opinion, it didn't take long for all them to start asking...what gives? How do you get this stuff, but more importantly, How can I get this stuff, too?

I've compiled a list of all the WOMM (Word of Mouth Marketing) Sites that I use.  A few of the sites I am a member of, I found from a blog post, just like this. Except, while they were very informational, I didn't really get a sense of what was in store for me.  I will break them down, based solely on what I think of them and how they operate.

If you know of anyone who likes to test products that are new or a brand they already love, then please refer them to this post! Thanks!

Website:  www.buzzparadise.com (to sign up, go onto "Member Area")
Are you a Brand/Company? Check out their contact page.

Buzz Paradise is dedicated to bloggers or people who are VERY active in Social Media. These are either paid advertisements that appear on your blog (called case studies) or product review, where they will provide you with a product and in return you provide them with a review.  They do manage your blog stats, if you have one, and while I have not been contacted to participate in any case studies.  I'll stick around for a while. 

You can read up on what type of case studies they provide, here.

Website: www.vocalpoint.com
Are you a Brand/Company? Check out their contact page.

Vocal Point is partnered up with the PnG family of products.  They are a site that is focused on the opinions of women.  They also work differently, in that you do not qualify for many campaigns (or free products) until you've made your voice among them.  They have different tasks and badges for you to earn your way up the Vocal Point ladder.  Beside product reviews, they also participate in sponsored parties.

Website: www.swaggable.com
Are you a Brand/Company? Check out their contact page.

Swaggable is still in the Beta stages, gathering info on their members. I have been on two of their campaigns, and the process is very easy.  You sign up, you can do this with your Facebook account. Look through the products they are currently working with, and click on the ones you would like to try out (think of it in terms of a wish list, of sorts) it's called the "WANT" button.  Once the item is up for grabs you'll get an invitation to join, try the product and review! You can also create a fan base for yourself within their site, with followers and friends.

Website:  www.orgullosa.com
Are you a Brand/Company? Check out their contact page.

Orgullosa is a womm site like no other, it's completely set in Spanish, and is geared toward Hispanic and Latin American women. They're motto "Falda Bien Puesta" in other words, women who have on their BIG GIRL SKIRTS! I mean, how could you not fall in love with that statement?? Being a Hispanic female AND mom, I was invited to join them, and I'm so glad I did, because they're currently accepting applications to host sponsored house parties. It's a lovely site, so if you're a fellow Hispanic women, who knows what she wants...then this site is for you!

Website: www.one2onenetwork.com
Are you a Brand/Company? Check out their contact page.

One2One Network is great in that in provides such a broad spectrum of products, brands and services to review.  You can opt in on an invitation to join a campaign or you can wait until something else sparks your interest. It's very blogger friendly, and there are also a few paid campaigns in the mix! I feel that this is such a great womm site because it helps your blog get out there and it's very task oriented, so if you want a specific niche to get into, this would be the perfect site for you to join.

SheSpeaks is such a woman and mom friendly site.  The site is dedicated to powerful moms, who have influence! The site is so easy to navigate, they have fun surveys, products that are up in a data base, ready for you to review (if you've previously used). The more reviews you do, and the more you participate, then your chances of being chosen for a product kit are huge! SheSpeaks works closely with the PnG family as well. Even more reason to join, they have a friendly twitter staff, and have great twitter parties almost weekly!

Are you a Brand/Company? Check out their contact page.

Influenster has something for everyone! It's a fun site, that allows you to gain reach among your social media sites and blogs, to obtain fun badges in your area of expertise or interest.  After a series of badge earnings and Influenster points, you'll start to receive invitations to join different VoxBox campaigns, the point is to get on as many continuous VoxBox campaigns as you can! There is a new voxbox each month, and the difference between them and the other sites, you get a box of several different products and brands to test out, try and review. Before you go run and sign up, you have to ask them for an invitation, or if you know an Influenster member, they have up to 5 INFLUENTIAL people they can ask to join! This is definitely a site where you want to use your powers of influence!

Website:  www.houseparty.com
Are you a Brand/Company? Check out their contact page.

Do you enjoy hosting parties and events? Do people come to you for advice on how to have a memorable house party? If this sounds like you, then House Party is the WOMM site for you.  This site is dedicated to providing people with a Sponsored Party! You provide the guest, the pictures, even the video and they provide the House Party!  There are several house parties to choose from, all you have to do is apply, wait for their response, and if you're chosen, you'll receive a party pack for up to 10-12 guests!  The competition is steep, and party hosting spots are limited, based on the Sponsor there are anywhere from 150-1000 spots.  Truly a Host/Hostess paradise!

Website:  www.bzzagent.com
Are you a Brand/Company? Check out their contact page.

Have you bzzzz'ed your way over to BzzAgent? Not sure what you're waiting for. BzzAgent is one of the leading WOMM sites on the web.  Filtering through to their members several different Bzz Campaigns a week.  Like with the rest of the sites, BzzAgent is based on demographics and target consumers.  You get a survey, usually less than a couple of minutes long, they get to know you, you're family, what you like and dislike. If you qualify, you're sent an invitation to their campaign. Each campaign lasts several weeks, and competition is steep! If you don't respond right away to an invitation, you probably won't get in, but not to worry, because you might have opened up your chances for an even better campaign.  BzzAgent also has a great team of moderators who approve your "Bzz" and more importantly, they are linked up with MyPoints, a site based on earning points, which you can redeem for gifts cards or shopping! I've been a proud member of BzzAgent since 2009 and I've been through a few structure changes with them, in terms of how they assess your membership, they use a points system, the more you bzz, the better your campaigns will be! So bzz on over there and join!

Please keep in mind, that while I've received free products from almost all of these sites.  I've maintained my integrity and reviewed these as honestly as possible, always disclosing that the product was obtained for free in return for an honest review.  There are also several subscription sites, where you are asked to pay a monthly membership, and you are then provided with products, these are not WOMM sites, they are subscription sites that you pay for.  

Do you use any of these sites? Which ones?  Are there any new sites that you want to share with the readers?
