Check out The Buzz!

It's been some time, as I've been settling into a new position. But a recent mail exchange with friend Tim Tyler made my eyes boggle, and set my envy gene rattling. Which makes the fingers itchy ...

Tim was behind a recent initiative that actually asked customers what they wanted via a community site, and then went on to build a new brand based on what he heard. See this blog post for a summary.

It simply amazes me that an insurance company had the courage to do this research, let alone move onto building a new brand based on the results. And while we need to wait to see whether they will be successful, it's a stunning example of what active listening via community sites can do for a - let's face it - fairly commoditized service offering.

What can we learn from this? Three things come to mind - firstly, the wisdom of crowds is a real and powerful tool if companies are prepared to listen. Secondly, people do really want to tell companies what they want from them provided the company doesn't come across all high-handed.

Thirdly, monetizing the feedback from communities is as simple as being prepared to act on what they tell you. The initiative by IAG may or may not be successful, but as a potential customer I can tell you that they get my attention immediately. They want to deliver what I want in my service package.

Thought for the Day: Maybe listening to people is not enough - you've got to have the balls to act on what they tell you.

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I want...no make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.


The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real money.
It gets down to select a proper partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the income with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
