SHESPEAKS Your Power to Influence

Behind the Scenes At SheSpeaks

Behind the Scenes At SheSpeaks
Hello! I'm Aliza Freud, the founder of SheSpeaks. We've been getting lots of requests for more information on SheSpeaks. Who we are? How did we get started? Why we're here?

Well, we figured, the best way to keep SheSpeaks members updated on what we're doing, is to just tell you directly on the site. So, we've created a section of the SheSpeaks blog dedicated to information on the behind the scenes at SheSpeaks.

I started SheSpeaks because I realized that as women we are an incredibly important and powerful group of consumers. We make up over 50% of the population in the US, we make over 83% of the purchase decisions and we have tremendous buying power of $5+ trillion!

So, if we are such an important consumer, shouldn't we have more of a say in the development, marketing etc. of products and services that are targeted to us?

With SheSpeaks, we are creating a place where women can have their say and influence these products and services- while getting them for free and connecting with one another at the same time!

Since we launched at the beginning of February, thousands of women across the country have signed up to join SheSpeaks. As our numbers grow, so does the influence of our network!

    I can't wait to get my first product. I have such a big mouth and when I try something I really like I tell everyone. I will even tell strangers in a store, if I see them looking at mascara for example, to try the brand I am currently using. I think it is so fun to share great finds. We all need to spend wisely these days so this is a great idea. I do also like to tell my horror stories with products like the customer service people at Dyson. Won't go there now. So needless to say, this is right up my alley.

    I am very excited to become a part of this! If I find a product that I like, I too, not only tell my friends about the product, but talk to other shoppers in stores that are looking at the shelf where the product is! I think it is a "win, win" situation for the product developers.

    It is also important to voice your opinion if you are disappointed in a product. I have called the 800 number listed on the package of products both to voice my happiness or disapproval of an item.

    I'm truly a consumer advocate. I agree with slmg and am very happy that GMA had a segment today that led me here. I am all for helping companies shape their products so they will satisfy the majority of consumers.

    I am really happy that a friend told me about SheSpeaks. She has had very rewarding experiences with this website and highly recommended that I try it. I am waiting for my Sonicare toothbrush and can hardly wait to try it and tell others about it. It is also a great forum for voicing our opinions on various topics. Great Job!!

    I love your site...I get on shespeaks everyday and have even talked my mom into joining! She also enjoys all the tips, tricks and comments from the other women. It's great to have a place where you can talk with other moms about what works for them or just women in general about the things they use and love. I have already been able to try a product through your site that I really like. It was great filling out the survey and being able to tell the company what I thought!

    Thank you!

    Thank you for giving us a voice on products, seems like we never had a place to voice our opinions good or bad. I also asked my daughter and friend to join so we can let everyone know of all the wonderful things there are out there that we are missing and really could use in our homes and for personal use, and we now have guidance in purchasing those items, and are more informed. Thanks Again. Keep up the good work

    Thanks for the opportunity to have our opinions heard! I love sharing great products with friends and family, and warning them of the not so great products...however well-intended those may be! This is a wonderful and innovative idea Aliza thank you so much!
