Welcome to Influenster! We’re here with your full rundown of some of our favorite features. Check out the top ten fun ways to start getting involved and making the most of your time with us!
1. DOWNLOAD THE INFLUENSTER APP
The Influenster app is the fastest and easiest way to read and write reviews, get answers to your questions, and unlock your badges. Oh, and did we mention it’s also the only way to access our handy barcode scanner? The one you can use to access product reviews and ask your questions in-store?! Well, we just did! You can download it for iOs or Android devices.
2. CONNECT YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS
Show off your high status! When you connect your social accounts we can see how influential you are on social media. Your Impact Score is a direct reflection of the friends and followers you have on your connected social media accounts. Your Impact Score isn’t designed to fluctuate: once you connect your networks it won’t go up or down based on your activity on Influenster. So the best way to raise your score? Get connected with us!
3. FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL MEDIA TO STAY UP-TO-DATE
We believe wholeheartedly in people sharing their honest opinions about everything, so obviously we’re social media obsessed! Here's a cheat sheet to all of our social accounts, so go crazy! Like us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram, Subscribe to our YouTube page, and follow us on Twitter! We’re just getting started!
Our Canadian members can check out our special InfluensterCA Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts! We also have special @InfluensterUK and @InfluensterME Instagram accounts, so if that’s where you’re located, come say “hi”! @InfluensterEATS is your go-to Instagram destination for all things food and drink, and our @InfluensterVox twitter account is home to our world famous twitter parties!
4. TAKE A PHOTO
Think of it as your own personal version of the ‘gram! You can upload your best pics directly to Influenster. We want to see what you’re eating, what you’re sipping on, and all the hair and makeup looks you’re creating! Use the app to download your photos and tag all of the products you used. You can also scroll through other member’s photos for inspiration and to see what products they’re using. You can include a photo with your review, or upload it directly to a photo gallery! Our photo galleries are a way to view other member’s photos based on a theme or a prompt and join the conversation with your own pictures!
5. CHECK OUT YOUR PROFILE
You can get to your profile by clicking your profile photo on the top right corner. If you're in the app, it will be on the bottom right. On your profile you'll be able to easily access your Impact Score, Snap questions, reviews, lists, and questions you've written, photos you've taken, and any campaigns you might be currently participating in.
Don’t forget to also fill out your beauty profile! Your beauty profile is where you can give us the inside scoop on you! Whether you’re looking for products to help with dark circles, or a brunette with wavy hair who’s interested in products that will help sleek your locks, this is the place to share all of that information! Sharing this means that you can find reviews from members with the same concerns as you, so if someone else with dry skin leaves a resounding endorsement of their favorite moisturizer, you can make sure you catch it!
6. CHECK OUT YOUR SNAPS
Snap questions are quick surveys on your profile that help us learn more about you. The more we know about you, the easier it is for us to match you with the perfect products. We don't want to send you something that doesn't fit your lifestyle, so we do our best to ensure this by asking you Snap questions. They’re also super fun.
7. WRITE OR RECORD A REVIEW
Reading and writing reviews is one of our favorite ways to utilize Influenster. With millions and millions of reviews from opinionated Influensters just like you, these handy reviews could be the difference between a regretful purchase and a brand new product obsession. And now, not only can you read and write reviews, you can watch and record them! So write and record helpful reviews to pay it forward, and read and watch them to cash in on your good karma. With Influenster you'll have access to an infinite wealth of knowledge.

"Will this dry your lips out?"
