Influenster – Sign Up
I’ve seen a little bit about the Influenster VoxBox over the years, every now and then, from scrolling through my different social media accounts. I had always wondered what it was but never actually took the time to look it up for myself. Assuming from how rarely I would see a VoxBox on my feed, I figured that it was something that was sent out to members once every 6 months to a year. I finally looked into Influenster last weekend and I decided to sign up.
Becoming a member is a fun process! You sign up and start linking all of your social media accounts to your Influenster account and it begins to measure your impact score. You’re told that the higher your impact score is then the higher your chances will be for receiving a VoxBox! I’ve seen scores as high as 35,000 while I was looking into joining so I was doubtful that I would ever get a VoxBox to begin with but the Influenster community looks like a lot of fun to be part of either way. Then there are questions that are referred to as Snaps. Answer all of them. Then check back to see if you have any new ones. Answer them all again. The Snaps are a mix of questions about makeup and beauty, video games and technology, snacks and drinks, a bunch of things! I think that answering these go toward earning your expert and lifestyle badges which may determine what kind of VoxBox sets you’ll then be invited to receive. There are opportunities to review products in between answering the questions. It took me about a day to finish setting up my account, logging in when I can to finish it with everything else that I’m usually up to in a day. I earned my first badge after completing all of my Snaps, the Beauty Queen badge. Of course, right? Once you’re all done then you just hang out on the website where you’re able to answer random questions that other Influensters are asking about any products that you’ve tried and topics that you might be knowledgable in. You’re also able to ask questions about just about any product you’re curious about. I found myself checking into my Influenster dashboard more frequently than checking my Facebook account! After spending some time reviewing some products and answering questions I received my second badge, Happy Hour.
About four days after I had created my account I received an email from Influenster with questions about which types of foundation I prefer and which color I would buy my foundation in. Then I was asked for my mailing address! It wasn’t until I received another email about a day or so afterwards that I was confirmed to receive my very first VoxBox for Covergirl’s Queen Collection cosmetics line.
I’ve read several reviews before signing up that said that the chances of getting a VoxBox depend on your social media impact reach and how frequently you’re logging into your Influenster account being active with writing reviews and answering questions. I’ve read reviews that said users received a VoxBox without ever logging into their account again after the initial set up. Some people have said that they’ve done everything that is recommended to receive a VoxBox and never received one in their entire first to second year of being a member. I’m not sure how it works but I’m feeling pretty excited and super lucky to have been given a chance at a complimentary VoxBox for testing purposes!
So here’s my current dashboard information to help figure out how it works:
Impact Score – 2918
The breakdown on my impact score is that I have 32 Facebook friends, 822 Twitter followers, 1797 Instagram followers, 0 YouTube followers, 44 Tumblr followers, 0 friends on Foursquare, 56 friends on Google Plus, 8 Pinterest followers, I don’t have a Blogger account so I couldn’t link one, 59 WordPress followers, I’ve invited 0 friends, and you’re given 100 points if you include the Influenster badge on your personal website which I did do.
Activities – 18 reviews, 0 questions, 5 answers, 1 list (it’s incomplete at the time of this blog posting)
Unlocked Achievements – 14
Badges – 2; Beauty Queen and Happy Hour
Please let me know if you sign up! I’d love to see if it is possible to link up within the Influenster community.
