Everything You Need to Know About Digital Challenges and Events

We got you!

ByCaitlin M.

We don't have to tell you that our Influenster community is made up of product-loving super stars just like you! And when we partner with brands for new launches or events, we can't wait to share the news. That's why we're always looking for more opportunities to help you connect with brands and products you love, share your voice, attend exclusive events, or enter to win prizes. We already know you love writing reviews, following your favorite Influenster friends, posting to photo galleries, rocking VoxBoxes, and participating in discussions, but one of the best ways to have fun on Influenster is to participate in a Digital Challenge (formally known as a VirtualVox) or event.

Have you been invited to join a Digital Challenge lately but want the 411 on exactly what to expect? Don't worry, we got everything you need to know right here!


What are the types of challenges?

We have a few types of challenges here at Influenster, and each one is slightly different—yet totally fun! Take a peek at the three types of challenges you could be invited to join.

  • In-store: Join your fave retailer for a special in-store activity, use an exclusive coupon code, or more! And, from time to time, get CashBack for some of your in-store purchases with our new feature that lets you scan your receipt from participating retailers. That's right, we're always looking out for our stellar Influenster shoppers. 


  • Event: Sometimes your favorite brands host special activities or events just for Influensters. Trust us, this is one RSVP you won't want to miss.


  • Social: From time to time, we partner with brands for exclusive contests, and we need you to show of your awesome content skills. 


Don't worry, you'll know exactly which type of non-box-related challenge you're being invited to join in when you receive your initial invite email. And yeah, there's a little something special in it for you too! Wink, wink!

So, why me?

Well, you're awesome! But we don't need to tell you that. When you're invited to join a challenge, it could be for any number of reasons. Maybe you live close to an in-store event that we know you wouldn't want to miss. Or maybe you've indicated you love a certain brand (hey, we pay attention!), and there's a chance you could learn about their newest product first, visit a pop-up in your area, or even enter to win product in a contest!

Basically, we want to give you the chance to enjoy the perks of being an Influenster and interact with your favorite brands and products independently of box campaigns. What's more, every challenge has a contest associated with it, so you'll always have a chance to win some amazing prizes!

Amazing! What now?

Now that you're a total Digital Challenge pro, here's what you can expect. You'll first get an email invite letting you know which challenge you're invited to join and any relevant info you need to know in order to complete your task. And if you ever need a refresher on what exactly you should be doing to complete your challenge, head over to your Influenster profile and check out your Brand Badge for all you info.


Psst! Invited to join a Digital Challenge that you're just not feeling? No worries! Simply don't complete your tasks or post. Not completing a Digital Challenge will not have any effect on your Impact Score or any future VoxBox or Digital Challenge.
