You might have seen social media posts made by your friends or people you follow of colorful boxes from Influensterfilled with free stuff, ranging from beauty products to food to health supplies. I signed up a little less than a year ago and have already received products from Hourglass, L’Oreal, St. Ives and more. Interested in learning how to get a box for yourself? Read more!
What is Influenster?
Influenster is a company that allows consumers to test products for free based on social media influence. Every month, they send out thousands of boxes filled with free products.
What is an Influenster VoxBox?
An Influenster VoxBox is the box of free (usually full-sized!) products you are sent in the hopes that you will share it on your social media accounts and write reviews on the products.
Boxes are usually themed around a theme or brand. Influenster frequently releases beauty boxes, many of them containing prestige beauty products. Examples of past boxes include YSL, Bite Beauty, Estee Lauder, Ole Henriksen and SK-II!
How do I get an Influenster VoxBox?
There’s no guarantee that you will get a certain box but there are ways to increase your chances of getting boxes.
1) Sign up for Influenster and create an account.
2) Connect your social media accounts once you’ve created an account.
The combined following of your social media accounts turns into your impact score. The higher the score the better chance you have in qualifying for VoxBox campaigns.
3) Earn badges in the topics you’re interested in.
You can earn badges by writing reviews and answering questions on the website. If you’re interested in receiving beauty products, it would be useful to earn the beauty badge.
4) Respond promptly to Influenster survey emails.
When you are in the running to receive a VoxBox, you will get an email from Influenster asking you to fill out a survey to see if you are a good fit. It is very important that you fill out the survey before the deadline in order to be considered for a box.
There have been times when I’ve received two boxes in the span of a month and times when months have gone by before I receive a box. Just be patient and remember to work on growing your social media accounts and stay active on the website. It’s also essential that you complete the survey after you receive the VoxBox because that raises your chances of receiving another box in the future!
