If you follow my blog at all, you’ve probably heard me mention a time or two about the amazing program that is Influenster. If you are a new follower, keep reading.

If you enjoy social networking and being part of a community, Influenster is seriously where you need to be. But what exactly IS Influenster? Read on for the deets!!

*From Influenster’s Website* (Italics are my thoughts/opinions)

What Is Influenster

Influenster is a free-to-join community of invited trendsetters who live to give opinions of products and experiences. Influenster creates links between brands and members to reward participation and influence future products.

Influenster is a place for culture junkies to come together and share their unique opinions of products and experiences. Active members of Influenster get exclusive access to deals, promotions, and swag from brands that thrive off the input (the good, the bad, and the ugly — they just want to know what’s up).

Free products? Reviews? Exclusive deals? Starting to sound good yet? If not, keep reading!!

What’s involved in a membership?

As a member, you prove your influence by gaining Expert Badges and show how you live by earning LifeStage Badges…both of which are won in a variety of ways, such as: completing surveys, writing reviews, creating videos, and engaging in other social media.

I love blogging, doing surveys, and reviewing products. Reviewing products gives me a sense that I am helping other people with their purchase decisions with my HONEST review. I always read the reviews of products before buying them because it helps me to hear real and honest feedback about something before shelling out the cash for it! 

What’s in it for me?

Very important. As a contributing member of Influenster, you get the chance to share your knowledge and know-how with other like-minded people.

You also get exclusive discounts on products and services based on the Expert Badges you unlock. You’ll have access to content and sales based on your influence and area of expertise.

As an active influencer, you’ll have the chance to get invites to Influenster programs so you can try the latest and coolest products catered towards your lifestyle before anyone else.

Members who participate actively on Influenster and engage in programs increase their opportunities to receive rewards.

If you participate in online challenges, play interactive games, spread the word to your friends, and gain currency within our system, you’ll earn serious street cred.

Keep in mind, the key word is ACTIVE! The more active you are, the more likely it is you’ll be chosen for voxbox programs and the like. This program is NOT for moochers… as Influenster clearly states here:

So wait, is this about getting free stuff?

Nope. If you’re here to mooch, this isn’t the place for you. Nobody, no matter how high his or her Influenster Score, is guaranteed rewards. Even if you are offered a reward, you can always opt out. The real benefit of membership is access to exclusive content, product reviews, and discussion within a community of tastemakers. Perks are just the icing on the proverbial cake.

So again, NOT a place for moochers. If you are serious about being a trendsetter, influenster and the like, then please… sign up here. It’s well worth the effort and its super duper fun!! 


The layout of the site is easy to understand and follow. Badges are fun to unlock, most just require a simple survey. Then you can dive even further into improving your score by answering questions from other Influensters, blogging, tweeting, and just being an all around social networker.

I think my most favorite feature of Influenster is unlocking the Expert Badges. The Expert Badges are unique in that currently, you can only unlock 5 of them. Expert badges range from “Eco” to “Fashionista” and you decide which ones you want to unlock based on what you believe you’re an “expert” in. So far, I’ve unlocked Beauty Queen and Fashionista. I’m leaning towards “Eco” next but we shall see!!
