The Big Influenster Relaunch!

I joined up with Influenster last March, and if you're wondering what the big whoop is all about, they're pretty much a community of influential people with expertise in certain areas that can qualify to receive some really awesome, and totally FREE products to try out and review.  I was lucky enough to be one of the members accepted to try the Mom Voxbox last June, and it did not disappoint! 

Influenster recently switched things up a bit by adding a face lift and relaunched the whole website. It's a lot easier to navigate than their old version since it wasn't very user-friendly, and it's still taking me time to get used to all the new features, but the overall look and feel is a major upgrade.  I really like that there's loads more stuff to do! More products to review, they're adding more Voxboxes to the program so your chance of being accepted is  higher than ever, and now you can check out your friend's as well as other member's profiles. The best part of it all is that you get the opportunity to be a part of a like-minded community that you can share your expertise and experiences with the products you love. Or the ones you don't! 

In the program, your influence is measured by a score, which is decided by a few different key factors.  

1.) Your participation on the website.

2.) Your presence on social media.

3.) Your participation when you receive your Voxbox.

 You can have up to five "Expert" badges, so it's important to pick ones that are actually  relevant to you. The more you participate, the higher your score goes, and the more likely you are to be accepted for a Voxbox! 

Influenster is fun, and a great way to get your opinions on your favorite products out there.  It's been a while, so I hope I'm lucky enough to be chosen for a Voxbox soon!  

Influenster is currently invite-only and as a member, I have five invites available. If you are interested,  leave a comment below with your email so I can send you an invite before they're all gone!
