Influenster is a program that sends out thousands of boxes a month full of free stuff in hopes that you'll use your social media influence to tell everyone you know what you think of these products.
All about the Influenster VoxBox
An Influenster VoxBox is a box full of full-sized free products that you get to review and keep. These boxes are often based on a theme but are sometimes a single product or group of products from the same company.
These are truly awesome boxes that can contain hundreds of dollars worth of free stuff. In the past, I've seen VoxBoxes that contain a Keurig coffee brewer, a skincare line, make-up, clothes, and all kinds of other products.
How to Join Influenster
You can visit Influenster and register by email or sign up with Facebook or Instagram. You'll then receive a link in your email that you can visit to fill out your profile.
Influenster is a completely free program to join and you don't need an invite.
Connecting Your Social Media Accounts
The first thing you want to do after your join Influenster is to connect your social media accounts by visiting your social impact page. The more of an influencer you are on social media, the more likely you are to get a box full of freebies sent to you.
At the top of the page, you'll see your impact score. The higher your score, the more likely you are to get sent a VoxBox full of free products. Your impact score is the best way to get a VoxBox, so be sure to put some effort into increasing it.
Go through and connect all of your social media accounts on this page. These include Influenster, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, Foursquare, Google+, Pinterest, Blogger, and Wordpress. It may take a few hours for your impact score to be calculated.
If you still have a low impact score after your social media accounts are connected, here are some things you can do to increase it:
- Increase your social media followers
- Invite friends to join Influenster, the more social the friend the better
- If you have a blog, add the Influenster widget to it
Improving Your Chances of Getting a VoxBox by Answering Snaps
On your profile, you'll see a section called Snaps. Snaps are quick questions that determine if you qualify for a VoxBox.
You'll want to make sure that you check your Influenster dashboard frequently and answer any Snaps that you have available.
Pay Attention to the Influenster Emails
Influenster will sometimes send out emails with surveys that may qualify you to receive a VoxBox. Make sure you take these surveys as soon as you can so you can possibly snag up a box full of free products.
When Influenster is going to send you a VoxBox, they'll send you an email letting you know that it's coming.
Receiving a VoxBox
If you've qualified for a campaign, you'll receive your VoxBox in the mail. Be sure to visit the Campaigns section on your dashboard at this time to see what tasks you can do with your VoxBox.
Your VoxBox Campaign is your Ticket to Receiving Another VoxBox
When you've received your VoxBox you'll have certain social media tasks you can do to get a campaign badge. This may include filming an unboxing video, blogging about the VoxBox, tweeting photos of the products, and posting reviews on Facebook.
Make sure you complete as many of these activities as you can, the more active you are, the greater the chance that you'll receive another VoxBox.
Close to, or when your Influenster VoxBox campaign starts, you'll receive a survey in your email. Be sure to fill this survey out because it greatly increases your chances of getting another box full of free stuff.
