Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 14, 2005
BzzAgentÂ® Inc, a word-of-mouth marketing and research firm, today launched a BzzCampaign for the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS), the renowned wilderness experience and leadership organization founded in 1965.
The 12-week program will engage the efforts of 3,000 volunteer brand evangelists nationwide to raise awareness of NOLS among outdoor enthusiasts, corporate executives, educators and aspiring leaders. Famous graduates of NOLS programs include David Breashears, director of the IMAXÂ® film Everest, Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm, and Britton Keeshan, the youngest person to achieve the highest summits on all seven continents.
"NOLS is an organization that has always relied on word of mouth for the recruitment of our students," says Bruce Palmer, Director of Admission and Marketing, NOLS. "As a non-profit organization I assumed that NOLS could never afford to participate in a BzzAgent campaign. Then one day I was cruising around the BzzAgent website and came across the GoodBzz information. I filled out the application and a few months later NOLS was selected."
This is the second year of BzzAgent's GoodBzz Partnership, which provides three cause-related organizations annually with the capability to engage the 70,000 member BzzAgent evangelist community in a 12-week word-of-mouth campaign, at no charge.
