Influenster

So by now I think a lot of you have heard of Influenster, but in case you haven't I want to introduce you to the company that is really changing the way products get into the hands of reviewers.

Influenster.com is an online community for anyone who enjoys trying something new and sharing opinions. You don't have to blog or run a youtube channel (though those things can help) You just have to be involved in social media and have an interest in trying new things.

Once you set up an account on Infulenster, you can unlock these different badges. Some are geared toward different interest groups and some are more lifestyle oriented. There is a badge for blogging, tweeting, smartphone users. They've got all kinds of stuff. 

Once you sign up really explore the sight and unlock any badges that apply for you! The more active you are the more likely you are to be picked for different Vox Boxes.

Which brings me to the fun part, all the free stuff. When you are picked to receive a Vox Box you will get an e-mail letting you know when you can expect it's arrival. And a few weeks later you will receive a box in the mail that looks something like this.


Inside the box will be several products for you to try out. Once you've tested the products you can visit the site and find your challenge badges. These are badges available to recipients of the Vox Box who take some time to do some extra sharing. For example. To unlock the Bath and Body Works Badge You follow them on Social Media sites, tweet a fun pic of yourself with the mist in the box, and make a dedicated video or blog post for the product. (You will see mine a little later!)

Once you've unlocked the challenge badges Influenster will pick the top badge holders to receive extra products from the sponsoring companies.

So you can see that this is a really awesome way to test out new products and network with others who enjoy the same things you do. It doesn't cost anything to sign-up so what are you waiting for?

I didn't receive any compensation for this post. This is information on a new program that I am participating in. Reviews to come on products received. Products in the Vox Box were free of charge.
