Have you joined Smiley360 yet? This social media site is hopping!
How it works:
- You qualify for a mission via surveys on their site. You'll need to be quick and take the survey to qualify. They have limited # of spots. Once they're filled, the mission closes. You may get an email saying that you have a survey, but your best bet is to check your fave blogger (hopefully someone like me!) to see if a new mission has become available :)
- You get picked for a Smiley360 mission. This is at their discretion. But it does help to update your profile and answer surveys as soon as they become available.
- You use their facebook and twitter applications to post to your wall about the product. You can say anything from how much you like it to the conversation you had with someone.
- Face to Face Report: You actually write a report with the # of people you talked to and the conversation you had out in the real world.
- Writing on the Smiley360 Product page: This is your review of the product. Did you like it, how you'd rate it, specifics.
- Click thrus: You post links to your website, blog, etc. It tracks your clicks while bringing the person to the site to get a potential coupon/information about the product.
- The more points your earn on a mission, the likelihood of getting picked for a future mission.
The work? Obviously from the bullet points above, you don't earn freebies for nothing. You do have to promote the product and write the reviews. I would say from experience that it doesn't take very long to do. It was a little confusing at first because you have all of the tasks to do before you receive the product. You feel a little pressured to get the tasks done before you even had a chance to review.
Since I've joined a few months ago, I've tested Children's Advil, Woolite, Eversave, and now...
Arm & Hammer Sensitive Toothpaste (<------ yes, that's my shameless click-thru!)
I received 5 samples (perfect for travel) and a BIG tube of toothpaste to try. The perks are great!
And last month I tried Vaseline Total Moisture. I got 2 free tubes of lotion!
