I get asked to review a lot of tech products. At this point, people know that I'm a fair reviewer who actually uses the products and puts them through their paces.
If something isn't right with a product, I'll say it.
If I like a product, many times I'll end up buying it.
When I like a product, I end up using it, and bringing it along with me to meetings and conferences, where it gets seen. ;-)
Recently I was asked if I wanted to try out a new tripod, the Lollipod. In return, I was asked to write something up or record something about being a videoblogger.
I ended up doing a video review of the tripod that included some video tips. I also allowed Lollipod to post an excerpt from my book on video blogging, Get Seen.
The Lollipod guys did a great job on their site.
Instead of a bunch of product reviews, they got people to share things that you cold do with the tripod including, create living pictures, become a strobist, create a baby monitor, become an animator, try time-lapse photography, and more.
I love this idea.
Here it is on the site:

This is a great idea and they made me look good.
