I discovered Influenster about 2 months ago…I don’t remember how I came upon it, but I am really happy that I did! What is Influenster, you ask? Here’s how they refer to themselves:
Influenster is a free-to-join community of invited trendsetters who live to give opinions of products and experiences. Influenster creates links between brands and members to reward participation and influence future products.
Basically it’s a website that wants your opinion on all sorts of things…it’s a community of influential people who can qualify to receive free mailings with products to try. It doesn’t matter if your interests are fashion, style, and beauty products or camping, video games and travel – you can offer up your opinions on anything and everything. Along the way you will earn an ‘Influenster Score’ based on your interaction with the website, by providing answers and reviews on products, engaging with @Influenster on Twitter, and by submitting your blog, Pinterest page and Youtube Channel to the Influenster team. Answer questions and unlock Expert Badges on up to 5 Categories, adding to your overall Influenster score.
What’s in it for you, you ask? Well…as an Influenster with a high Score, you become eligible to earn a VoxBox! (A what?) A VoxBox! VoxBoxes are offered to specially selected Influensters and they are filled to the brim with the hottest products that interest you. Each box has a theme and designed around a specific program. No one is ever guaranteed a VoxBox, as it’s totally determined based on your interaction with the site.
And this month, I’ve been selected to receive a VoxBox! [WOO HOO!] It’s theme is called the Sugar ‘n Spice VoxBox, and I should receive it soon. As an Influenster, and the recipient of a VoxBox, I’m required to review all the products and let you know my thoughts on them…so look for my reviews next week!
Head on over to Influenster and check it out! Even if you only have 5 minutes a day to devote to this, it could be worth it..and it’s fun!
Let me know what you think, or if you are already an Influenster! If you are interested in Influenster, send me a note to firstname.lastname@example.org, or hit me up on twitter at @jackieschumi and I will send you an invite – but hurry, I’ve only got 5 to give out right now!
