I’ve been a member of Influenster for a few months now. If you aren’t familiar with it yet, it’s pretty great! Get full sized samples of new products coming to the market and submit your reviews to help the brands know what their customers are looking for! I love the idea of being able to have some influence on what products people buy, and how companies choose to market their stuff!
When I first joined on, I got the chance to review a new Palmolive dish detergent. Now, if you know me, or you’ve read my blog in the past, you know I’m a big fat greenie. I much prefer eco products, no artificial dyes, no parabens, etc. BUT, I have to tell you, this Palmolive outperformed itself! I was thoroughly impressed! That said, though, I probably won’t buy it again simply for the green aspect. It’s too chemical for my taste, but for those who don’t have green living as a priority, it’s a home run!
Well, Influenster updated their site recently and I just took the opportunity to explore the new site and see how they have things set up. I’ve gotta say, it’s pretty well put together! They’ve added more badges (titles you earn that determine the types of product selections – VoxBoxes – you’ll be considered for), and the overall navigation is pretty slick. One thing I don’t care for is that after I fill out information for a product review, I seem to have to go all the way back to the beginning of my Badges page to do the next one. I can’t just breeze through step by step through the same badge. At certain steps, you can’t back arrow to the previous screen because you’ll hit an error.
Otherwise, I’m pretty pleased with the overall redesign of the site. Reviews and community areas are easy to find and navigate and the whole site has a good clean, but vibrant look. Well done, Influenster! I can’t wait to get my next VoxBox!
