Influenster is a product review platform. It sends thousands of free products in the mail to consumers in exchange for honest reviews. In November 2021, Influenster acquired TryIt Sampling, which is now a community within Influenster, where members can qualify to receive more free products. Products offers by TryIt Sampling through the Influenster platform include computers, TVs, vacuums, kitchen appliances, toys, and other high-ticket items.

Tips to increase your chances of getting an Influenster VoxBox Box:
– Your demographics and profile answers play a major role in whether you are being offered some boxes. Make sure your profile is up to date.
– When you get a qualifying email for a box, make sure you answer asap.
– Connect your social media accounts including Instagram, Facebook, Tik Tok, YouTube and Twitter (it will improve your “Impact Score”). The more followers/friends, the better your chances of getting a box.
– Be active on the platform: answer questions, post reviews, post quality pictures.
– Keep checking your Social Impact Page. The higher your score, the more likely you’ll be chosen for a VoxBox. Here are two simple things you can do to increase it: (1) Connect your social accounts. Connecting all your accounts is the #1 way to boost your Social Impact (especially connecting Instagram) and (2) Invite your friends. For every friend you refer to Influenster, you’ll receive five (5) Impact points AS LONG AS THEY 1) sign up using your exact referral link and 2) connect their social media accounts. Just use your personal referral link (found by clicking or tapping “Invite Friends” on your Social Impact tab).
Once you get your first box, make sure to complete your review in a timely manner. Give your personalized truthful review of the product. The more details and the more information that will help consumers considering whether to buy the product or not, the better. Include a good quality picture.
I reached out to Influenster to ask them for tips to get more boxes and here is their reply:
