Influenster has received a makeover!

If you have been with me for awhile now you've probably seen my previous vox box from Influenster but if your new to my blog your probably wondering what the heck Influesnter is. Well I'm glad you asked, Influesnter is a free to join community of invited trendsetters who give their opinions on products and service whether they be good, bad or ugly.

They re launched on September 27th, 2012 with a new website and new programs. They were really good before the relaunch and now they are even better. The website is much easier to navigate and it's much simpler to understand your influenster score and what all the badges mean.

Before the relaunch anyone could join but now you must be invited to join this exclusive community. That is unless you were with them before the relaunch (like I was) than your already in and you have 5 invites to send to your most influential friends.

With the relaunch I was able to unlock 5 new expert badges so far I've unlocked three the Beauty Blogger badge, Sweet Tooth badge, and the Gamer badge. I'm not sure what I'll use my last two badges on just yet there are so many great expert badges to unlock.

The influenster score is also much easier to understand your score is based on your participation on Influester and other social networks (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.). Your score also changes based on the rank of other Influenster members. As you can see in the picture below my overall score is 78 and my score in each of the expert categories is 83 in beauty blogging, 65 in sweets, and 66 in gaming.

So now that we've covered what all those mean I bet your'e wondering what these Vox Boxes I keep mentioning are. A vox box is a reward you might get for being an active Influencer, these boxes are selected and sent to you for FREE and filled with products that would interest you based on your expert badges and demographics. Each vox box is different for every program and no one is guaranteed a box. You can increase your chances of qualifying for a box by being active and participating on Influesnter and social networks.

Once you receive a box your also invited to join in things called Brand Challenges and these are really fun little tasks that you can do (participation is optional) to become a Brand Ambassador and get a chance to earn other items from the brand.

Lastly the most important part of the Influesnter website is the Reviews's section the place where you get to share your thoughts on products you were wild about or products that left you feeling disappointed.  You can also read through other user's reviews on products to get a different perspective and discover new products that you might love. Writing reviews will also help improve your Expert Badge score in that area.

I think that does it for the Influenster relaunch I hope you guys found this post useful and if you have any questions feel free to reach out to me in the comments below!


  1. Thanks for the update! I signed up for influenster back in August, but found it confusing and hard to use. I just re-visited and like it much better! My overall score is only 38, but hopefully I will can increase it!

    1. Anytime I'm glad you found it helpful. That's what I thought about it back in when I first joined too so glad they made it much easier. You for sure can just unlock your badges and do reviews on their site :)
