Have you ever wondered how to get free products for your Youtube channel or for future blog content? Well, many bloggers and Youtubers don’t just have extra cash hanging around to constantly go buy products left and right to try out for their viewers and readers. This is where Influenster and/or PR packages come in, but I have no clue how to get on a company’s PR list besides being popular on social media. If you do, please let me know because I would love to be on a PR list! But if you aren’t a social media sensation, then Influenster is the way to go if you are a regular consumer looking to get free products and to test out new launches.
What is Influenster?
Influenster is a website/company that partners with an abundance of companies to send consumers, like you and me, to test out products and give our honest review on them for the world to see. Sign up to Influenster by clicking here to get started!
What is a Voxbox?
It’s a box that Influenster sends you to review that is stocked full of products (usually full-size)! The boxes are usually themed by seasons, a specific item, or by a brand’s new launch. The size of the Voxboxes can range from being only one item to having 6-7 items, but it really all depends on what campaign you get selected for. Some of the brands that I’ve gotten sent are Marc Jacobs, Bite Beauty, Venus Razors, and many more.
How do you get a Voxbox?
1. Personalize your profile
Once you sign up for Influenster, the website gives you the option to tell Influenster all about yourself. Take the few minutes to do just that! When they are selecting people for Voxboxes, the team looks for likes, categories that you are interested in trying, color selections, hair types, and other personalized options to pick the perfect box for you. I love getting new makeup and self-care products so most of my boxes are centered around those categories, but sometimes I get selected for a more general box such as a college student Voxbox that I got recently.
2. Connect all of your social media accounts
Now before you get worried, Influenster doesn’t post without your permission to any of your accounts. They only use the information to calculate the number of followers or friends that you have to then calculate your Impact score. Basically, this means the higher the impact score, the higher chance you have of getting selected for a campaign.
3. Review any products that you currently have
When I first started with Influenster, I started reviewing products and items that I had laying around my apartment, such as food, beauty items, and hair products. Influenster has a ton of categories to choose from, including pet items, school supplies, and car supplies. You’ll want to review items in the categories that you want to get sent free products to test out. This helps boost your activity on the Influenster website, which in turn helps get you selected for a Voxbox.
4. Ask and answer any questions on products
Another way to have a better chance of getting selected for a campaign is to ask and answer questions on some of your favorite products or products you’re interested in testing. Influenster has a great community that is so open and helpful! It’s a great place to check the reviews or questions that have been answered when you’re shopping for a new product, such as a foundation or setting spray. I always scan products while I browse before I buy anything. The more active you are, again the more chances you’ll have at being selected.
5. Answer every snaps that are on your dashboard
Once signing up for Influenster, there is a selection to answer these questions called “Snaps”. These are more detail and different questions to further get to know you as a person and what you’re interested in testing out. They usually ask what brands, products, or tools that you recently bought and what you’d be interested in buying. This allows the team at Influenster to get to know you better and allow you to be selected for Voxboxes that are centered around products you’d enjoy or haven’t tried before.
6. Check your emails
When you’re on the list to possibly get selected for a campaign, Influenster will send you an email stating this as well as give you a link to complete a short survey. This survey will either get you selected or declined for the box. But most often if you get that email you’ll be selected for the Voxbox, at least in my experience.Retweet if you're ready to learn how to win free products with Influenster?! Click To Tweet
Influenster has been such a fun experience, and I tend to love most of the items in my boxes. They really make it personal and try to only send you items that you would truly use and love. It’s such a great and easy way to get free full-size products for free, but also a great way to test new products without spending your hard earned money. I also want to mention that you shouldn’t worry if you don’t get every Voxbox (even though I would love to try everything) because they send out thousands of boxes all the time from different brands and collaborations.
If you get your first Influenster Voxbox after reading this post, please let me know which one that you got and if you enjoyed everything in your box! I love seeing what other people get to test out.
