Today I am sharing with you the best influencer programs and how to get sponsored posts on your blog.

UPDATE 2019: I have a new post for best influencer websites here!

Be aware that you won´t always qualify for all of these programs because the brands or sites do have often requirements you have to fulfill (about your blog´s traffic,  social media follower count etc.).


I did now over 100 promotions through them. They have a ton of campaigns- also paid ones! Your blog stats, google analytics and follower counts are highly important to get approved for promotions.

(former iFabbo) has since 2017 a lot sponsored opportunities! Great for beauty bloggers, but also mommy blogger sand even food bloggers will find great campaigns.

Brandbacker offers a couple of campaigns- never really a lot, but some. You can also write sponsored posts for them. There have been a couple goodies in the past that I scored (Makeup or the Kiss Instawave) and I also did paid posts with them.

Primp (Pretty in my pocket)

Not everybody is eligible to become a "Power Primper", but if you do: there is a couple sponsored awesome opportunities during the year- not many, but some good ones! I recently was able to review the HiMirror and BeBella Skin care with them, plus it was paid!

I am getting a decent amount of high end makeup from here!

Activate by Bloglovin

A pretty new platform by bloglovin. I have seen a couple campaigns- some of them with payments I can only dream of- but I have never been able to get into one. Try it out! Maybe you are lucky.

Beautystat does not many promotions but recently I got a whole bunch of products for my son! ;-)

Shespeaks also does not have many promotions but I got the Lancome Dreamtone from them (that was before I went cruelty free).


Personally I don´t do the Voxboxes anymore- I find that the boxes are simply not worth anymore my time and effort I have to put into this. Oh and also: most of the times the items are not cruelty free and I won´t cover that on my blog. I won one time a Mega Voxbox (in a photo contest from Influenster) which was a bit better then your regular Voxbox- but again: not cruelty free.

Bzz Agent

I used to really actively bzz for them but have stopped because I don´t have the time anymore. They have a lot of food items like cereal, granola bars and shaving items. I got once a self cleaning electronic shaver from Braun (a $150 value) from them.

Social Insiders

They have very regular promotions, usually laundry detergent, fabric softener, hand soap or body wash, but the items are only low priced items and no payment is possible.

Pinch me

They send cute little boxes with samples, but you have to be super quick and log in often to see if you are eligible. Personally I do not do sample size stuff anymore and also again: most of the times the things are not cruelty free.


I did not think that this blogger program is really worth it. What I received through them was sample sizes of laundry detergent and vitamin supplements.





Last but not least: ask brands you like to work with! Many times they are more then willing of sending you free products. They love free advertisement through blogs!


I discovered so many tips and tricks how to get free stuff, that I wanted to share all my insights with you. I compiled all the information that I know on "How to get free beauty samples, how to get free stuff, how to become a product tester and other money saving tips", including some never shared before tips in one convenient e-book for you!
