I love this site, the opportunities are awesome. It is, however, a little hard to get picked for a Vox Box which kind of sucks. But as long as you add all your social media and work at building it and your inflenster score you'll eventually get one. It's also important to stay active with the group and participate in any of the Twitter and Instagram parties they host.

I love this app but i wish I could click on the button that says write a review but everytime I click on it nothing happens. One reason why i love this app is because it gives us free samples just by entering a contest and following the rules

Is it because of my age that I don't ever win.. I might be 52 years young but I could pass for 30. Just asking to give me a chance. Thanks Sherrie Mullaney

I've been on Influenster for about 2 years. When I first started, I honestly didn't expect to receive the amount of Voxbox's I have received.. (I've received about 5-6). The boxes are great because they (usually) come with full-size products. The thing about influenster though is that you HAVE to review these products, do activities, share photos on Instagram/other social media (which I don't have a problem doing). They give you a great amount of time to do these activities, and you don't *have* to complete all of them, but it's nice to get the badge for it so you can qualify for more voxbox's in the future. You also have to have a good social impact, which depends on the amount of followers/friends you have on your social media accounts (they add up the total amount). If you're looking for a place to sit and get free products for nothing, this is not the site for you. Influenster is about influencing your followers and friends to use products sent to you by participating brands.

The only thing that grinds my gears about this site/app is that there are so many people who copy and paste reviews from other reviewers for products, and who rate and write the same generic review on every item ever which is really unfair to those of us who spend time and effort writing great reviews to be qualified.

Yes, this site is real and its not a scam. This company sends out what they call voxboxes, which have, most of the time, full sized products of what ever they are reviewing at the time. to get a voxbox, you must post reviews on their site. The more reviews you post the higher the chance you will be chosen for a voxbox. I have received 2 voxboxes since Ive been on the site. Ive been on influenster for about 3 months. When a box comes out the will send you a survey if they think you might qualify. You fill out the survey and if you qualify you will be picked to be sent that particular box. just a fyi, just because you get a survey doesn't mean you will automatically get the box. Once the box arrives you will need to review the products and do the other tasks they are asking you to do. So, yes, this is a time consuming process. Yes, you do get products to try but the review process can be quite lengthy. I received a coergirl box which had a eye shadow palette, lip product, and mascara in it. I also received the jingle voxbox which had quite a few items in it. You won't be sent products you won't really use. It goes off of what you are reviewing. So if your a male your not going to get tampons. They do send out some high end cosmetics at times. I have seen them send out YSL and Marc Jacobs.

Question:
Answer:

When you take the survey for being on the short list for the next campaign, if you are a good match for the upcoming box you will receive an email sometime after saying "You're in!". If you do not receive that email, it means you were not a good match for that particular campaign based on your answers.

Question:
Answer:

To receive a VoxBox, connect your social media accounts to increase the impact meter. Write reviews and earn badges for those honest reviews. You may receive an email saying you are on the short list for an upcoming VoxBox and are required to take a survey if you would like to participate. If your survey answers show you are a good match for that campaign you will receive an email saying "You're in!". After that you will receive the product(s) and you MUST complete the campaign actions, write reviews and take a survey at the end of the campaign. If you do not do these things, you will not qualify for another VoxBox. Influenster is not about getting free stuff, it is about Influensting your followers, friends and family. Sharing products with them with honest reviews.

Question:
Answer:

facebook sells information to data miners that pay money - so yes. And linking anything to facebook will increase the chances of this happening. Your account being hacked may or may not be because of linking. It's good to change your password every once in a while and to avoid putting everything on facebook.
