Why #Influenster is Ideal for #SApros

As it is so accurately defined on its website, “Influenster is a community of trendsetters, social media masterminds, and educated consumers who live to give opinions of products and experiences.” Essentially, users can join the online community to learn about new products, share their own reviews, connect with other people, and even receive free products to try out from time to time.

For four simple yet valuable reasons, I recommend Influenster to the student affairs community, especially to new professionals and graduate students:

Self-care: Every #SAPro knows that practicing self-care must be a priority in our field so that we are refreshed and ready to be present when enhancing the collegiate community through our everyday work.  Influenster provides a great outlet for users to practice self-care as they test new (free) products, engage with others, and maybe even decide to buy a new product after hearing glowing reviews!

Community: Through Influenster, users can connect with different individuals who are outside of their typical circles but still share a common interest. For example, this is a great space for new parents to connect and share experiences about their new baby products or maybe it is a space for recent graduates to connect and exchange thoughts about their post-graduate purchases.

Flexibility: Influenster gives users the opportunity to be as involved as they would like to be.  Student affairs tends to be a busy field year-round, and Influenster allows the flexibility to be an active user or just someone who comes and goes on the site when it is convenient for them.

Trials & Treats: The VoxBox is perhaps the most appealing and most exciting feature that Influenster has to offer. VoxBoxes are boxes that arrive in the mail for you filled with complimentary products from up and coming brands! When you receive a VoxBox, you can try out the products free of charge and then share your trial experience on the Influenster website.

In fact, I just received my first VoxBox the other day and inside, I found not only a free voucher to receive a trial of #SargentoUltraThin, but I also received a coupon to purchase the cheese if I liked it AND a new lunchbox cooler (all free of charge!). Naturally, I loved the product and I will soon be reviewing it on the Influenster website.


If you have a minute, check out Influenster and I promise, you will not be disappointed!
