One of my absolute favorite online programs 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". Simply put, it's a a completely free program that allows me to test different products (some before they even hit the shelves) through different themed boxes (VoxBox). The only requirement is that you spread the word about the different products through the different social media networks. You can read a review on one of the boxes that I received here.
The latest in Influnster news is that site has been totally revamped! So far, I'm liking all of the updates, especially different tabs for easier navigation. I also like the fact scores are attached to the different badges. I think that this will allow for the weeding out of inactive members who just so happen to hold the badges that are needed to qualify for certain boxes. My only con is that members like myself will be at a major disadvantage because the badge earning process is more time consuming. Hopefully, I'll be able to earn badges in the limited amount of time that I do have to dedicate to the required badge earning activities.
