This post is part of The Free Stuff Series: How to Get Free Stuff You Actually Want.
Wouldn’t you love to know how to get free stuff to review? How about getting free products or services and in return, all you need to do is provide feedback and spread the word about the product or service? If you are the type of person who loves to tell your friends about all the great products, you find then this post is for you. If you have a lot of friends on social media or you just like writing product reviews, then this post is for you!
Businesses know word-of-mouth advertising (WOM) is powerful stuff. There are many programs that you can sign up for to spread the word about new products, and most will send you coupons so that you can try them first. For these types of offers, you may be required to fill out a short questionnaire or survey, host a party or just tell all your friends about the product to receive the free product. While this does take a little bit of extra time, you’ll often be rewarded with some great free stuff.
Below is a list of some of my favorite businesses that use word-of-mouth advertising.
BzzAgent – Connecting people and their favorite brands since 2001, BzzAgent is the leading social marketing company. What’s that mean to you? They put products in the hands of hundreds of thousands of real consumers and help them share their opinions about them with friends and family via reviews, Facebook posts, photos, and videos, blog posts and more.
I have been a member of BzzAgent for a long time, and I have received many great products to test out (Sonicare toothbrush, Poland Spring delivery service, razors, makeup, and more) and keep in return for my feedback and sharing of the products with my friends and family.
Houseparty.com– House Party makes it easy to have a party in your home and get exclusive access to awesome products for you and your friends. They provide the fun; you provide food, your friends, and feedback and promise to have an amazing time.
I have done house parties for Bare Minerals and Arm & Hammer, and they were fun and rewarding.
Smiley360 – Joining the Smiley community gives you the opportunity to try some of today’s most popular brands, as well as discover new brands. Members can qualify for Smiley “missions” where you’ll receive a free product or experience to try.
Influenster – Influenster.com is a product discovery platform and review site that helps members find new products to try and get advice so they can make informed purchases. They help their members compare products and guide them on how products can be integrated into their life. They inspire a love for products and encourage conversation, discovery, and reviews. Influenster invites their most active and social media savvy members to participate in exclusive reward campaigns.
I’ll be adding to this list when I find more great programs, but for now, I hope you enjoy these favorites of mine and if you have any favorites be sure to share them in the comment section of this post! Want more?
