If we do not receive any such notification within ten (10) days, we may restore the material.

STYLE GUIDES

 

Influenster is a forum for your thoughtful reviews, photos, videos, tips and more. Thus, we've put together these general guidelines for keeping it clean and classy here on our site:

 

INFLUENSTER REVIEW SECTION

 

Go Bare: That’s right, bare it all. The best reviews are personal and passionate as well as open and honest. Writing a review of something you received from us? Make sure to disclose that you received the products free from Influenster for testing purposes at the beginning of your description.

 

Use Good Taste: We Influensters pride ourselves on our style, so don’t trash your reputation by using offensive language and imagery. Furthermore, threats, harassment, lewdness, hate speech, and other displays of bigotry will not be tolerated.

 

Stay in Good Form: Let’s save the non sequiturs for the blogosphere. We expect your contributions to be relevant to the product you’re reviewing. Reviews aren't the place for rants about political ideologies, extraordinary circumstances, or other matters that don't address the core of the consumer experience.

 

Cut Out the Bias: Your contributions should be objective. Don’t review your own business or employer, your friends' or relatives' businesses, or businesses in your networking group.

 

Say It, Don’t Sell It: The power of Influenster is the power of YOU. Here, consumers have the final word, so let’s not muck up our review section with more commercial noise.

 

Keep Secrets: Remember the Golden Rule? Please respect the privacy of others. This means refraining from publishing personal information, close-up photos, and full names of any of your friends, enemies, and countrymen.

 

Innovation, Not Imitation: What you learned in middle school still applies - absolutely NO plagiarism. We want to hear from you, so show us your (own) stuff!

 

Avoid the Overstatement: It’s easy to get carried away. Please avoid exaggerating or misrepresenting your experience.

 

Be Picky - Click Hearts with Discretion: These hearts don’t mean whether you “Agree.” Like reviews only when they’re useful, helpful, and truthful. Reviews are sorted by what's most helpful, so make sure new visitors see the ones that shine.

 

Be Constructive: We all know how disappointing it can be when you buy something only to find it doesn’t work the way you thought it would. While it may be tempting to vent your frustrations here, remember that reviews should relay “what” and “why.” And please, for everyone’s sake, lay off the caps lock.

 

Be Creative: These reviews weren’t written by robots. Let the “you” shine through!

 

THE Q&A SECTION

 

Be Curious: Influensters have the answers. If you want to know more about a product, use the Q&A; section. But first, check that your question hasn’t already been asked. It probably has!

 

Share the Wealth: Think you’ve got the answer? Help out your fellow Influensters with all the info you’ve got. Your answers should be helpful, honest, and relevant. Spread the knowledge!

 

*Please be advised that Influenster retains the right to remove any inappropriate content or to revoke membership for Style Guide violations.

 

ON YOUR BLOG, VLOG, AND SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS

 

Heed the VoxFox: In all online features and comments, please make sure to disclose that you received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster at the beginning of your description. This keeps everyone honest - you, us, and our partners - so we can all be trusted Influensters.

 

Title, Title, Title: Don’t keep it a secret. Include the name of the product you’re reviewing in your blog or video title.

 

Keep it Clean: The Influenster Facebook page is a hub for our community. Use clean language, courteous behavior, and appropriate images. Failure to do so will result in a ban from the page.

 

THE HUB

 

Stay Considerate & Constructive: Show your fellow Influenster bloggers some love by commenting on their posts, but remember the Golden Rule - respect them as they would do for you!

 

Submit Quality: Influensters value fun, quality posts and we hold the rights to decide what in Influenster Nation is appropriate or not, when specially inviting you to contribute to The Hub.

 

DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENT

 

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

 

The Federal Trade Commission requires testing program participants to disclose that they have received products for complimentary testing purposes at the beginning of all reviews, social media posts, videos and blogs as specified below. Please note that failure to abide by these rules will result in suspension from Influenster. Because no one looks good in an orange jumpsuit, we've set out the following guidelines to help keep you on the right side of the law:
