Do you enjoy trying and reviewing a variety of new products, as well as sharing your opinion with others? Are you a blogger, and/or active on social media?
If yes, then Influenster would be a great network for you. Influenster is a website for Social Influencers. In exchange for honest product reviews, (on the Influenster site and social media platforms) Influenster will send you a box of products collectively referred to as a “Voxbox”.
What exactly is a Influenster VoxBox?
A Voxbox is a free box of full-sized products and coupons, for you to try and review. A VoxBox is attached to a campaign, which runs anywhere from a couple weeks to a month.
Each VoxBox campaign has its own campaign badge and each product in the VoxBox has its own product badge. To unlock “badges” you will need to complete a certain number of tasks. The more badges you earn, the higher your impact score (I’ll explain that later).
Required tasks include:
Sharing reviews on the respective product website.
Creating and sharing a YouTube video.
Sharing on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumbler, blogging, or sharing a product list on the Influenster site.
To unlock the chance to receive “bonus products” from brands, you may have the opportunity to complete additional tasks, such as writing a blog post, vlog, etc..

Earn Expert & Lifestyle Badges – Badges are ways to show you are an expert in a certain area ex. Fashion, Beauty, Cooking, Travel. Frequently VoxBoxes are geared toward Influensters with certain “Expert and Lifestyle Badges” Reviewing products on the Influenster site, posting questions and answering questions from other Influensters on the site, and creating lists are ways to earn towards your desired badge. Visit the Badges section on your dashboard to learn more about unlocking badges and earning points.
What is my Impact Score and What does it Mean?
On your homepage you will see a number and next to it a Reach Diagram. Your Impact Score is based on how “influential” you are. Connecting your social media accounts, unlocking Badges and being active on the site and with each VoxBox promotion are all ways to increase your score.
Growing your Social Media following will also increase your score. Referring members also helps. The higher your Impact Score, the more VoxBox’s you will be eligible to receive.
Anytime you receive a product from Influenster, it is important you disclose you received this product for “free or complimentary” in every single social media post and comment.
Be sure to follow all instructions on using correct hashtags and disclosure in all Social Media posts.
Be active and complete tasks.
Check in your VoxBox in once you receive it. You can do that on the website or from the app.
The more tasks you complete, the more likely you are to receive future VoxBox’s. Share frequently and as soon as you receive your VoxBox.
Provide thoughtful, detailed honest reviews.
Take well lit photos.
Check your email frequently.
On occasion Influenster will send out emails with campaign qualifier surveys to see if you qualify you for a particular VoxBox campaign. Be sure to be prompt in replying to these emails.
If you have been chosen to receive a VoxBox you will receive an email congratulating you on being accepted into that campaign.
Complete the Post-VoxBox Campaign Survey after completion of each VoxBox Campaign.
Participate in Twitter Parties and Virtual VoxBox Campaigns.
