BzzAgents always tell others they are part of a word-of-mouth program
Be proud to be a BzzAgent. When Bzzing others, you must let them know that you're involved with BzzAgent and tell them what you received as part of the campaign. If you genuinely like something (or even if you don't), it's your open, honest opinion that counts.
A Natural Communicator
Be yourself and share your opinions — all Bzz is good Bzz
Your first priority is always to deliver authentic Bzz, or information and opinions, to other people. You know how you stop listening when you think someone is trying to sell you something? Well, other people do too. So stay natural! Be extra careful to not spam strangers when you're online. No one enjoys spam, except when it's grilled and put on toast with a little bit of mayo.
Bzz is only effective when it's completely honest
Bzz only works because it is honest — and that means discussing any bad with the good. People are smart, and they'll pick up on fake or dishonest Bzz. Why would you want to be misleading and risk damaging your relationships? Your honest opinion is what matters and that's what you should share with others.
Everything you do communicates something to the people around you
An Agent knows that sometimes you don't have to say a word to make an impact. Keep in mind that you're constantly sending messages to the people around you, from what you say to the products you use.
Knowledge is power — and so is Bzz
As an Agent, your opinions have a lot of power. Respect that power by only sharing honest and informed opinions. Take the time to experience the product and learn more about it before you spread the Bzz.
Not a Salesperson
Share your honest opinions, not hype or a sales pitch
When you Bzz, you don't need to "close the sale" or over-dramatise what you're saying. Bzzing is about sharing honest opinions with others, not pressuring people or making false or misleading statements. Just say how the product worked for you, don't make broad claims about what it may do for others. It's your personal experience that matters.
Pay attention to how people are responding to the Bzz
Word of mouth is a two-way street. Sure, you have information about exciting products and services, but the people you're talking with also have opinions and experiences that they may want to share with you as well. Listening will help you to become a better, more informed Agent.

Bzzing for Fun
Bzz only works when you're having a good time
Being an Agent is exciting because you have access to great products and services, and fun because you get to spread the Bzz in your own unique way — whenever you want, with whomever you want. No gimmicks, no pressure. Sit back, relax and let the Bzz begin!
Maintaining multiple accounts
Fake profiles won’t up your chances of getting into campaigns, but they will get your license to Bzz revoked.
“Running” someone else’s account
Yep, this counts too. Your account is yours alone. If your partner, roommate, daughter, etc. wants to be a BzzAgent, they have to run their account themselves.
Selling or trading BzzKit contents
Listen, a BzzKit isn’t a birthday gift from your Aunt Sally. You won’t hurt our feelings if you don’t like what’s inside. In fact, we’ll want to hear all about it! What will upset us is spotting your BzzKit items for sale on eBay.
Using fake social media profiles
A Twitter account you use once every three months that’s only followed by your six closest friends? Love it. You’re golden. Keep up the good Bzz. A Twitter account with no followers that’s only used to post from BzzAgent.co.uk? Not okay.
Being sneaky or trying to fake our system in other ways
We’re all here to have fun, try free stuff and share product experiences with friends. Be honest, be patient and, well…just be you — and you’ll make BzzAgent a more awesome place for everyone!
