Throughout my journey as a mom and an influencer, I have been able to test products for a variety of companies and usually keep the product for my honest review. *Some products are tested and then sent back, but usually there is a stipend of some kind for testing.
I started product testing and influencing in March 2020. Since March I have been given the opportunity to product test over 100 products, keeping over 98% of them. Everything from floor cleaners, to beauty products to DIY project materials. I am happy to share my knowledge and experiences with any other influencers, mamas or those interested in product testing.
I will say, there are many testing opportunities that are a scam or put you in danger as a consumer. If ANY company, asks you to purchase a product and then they will refund you… DO NOT DO IT. Also if a company on Amazon gives you a coupon code to purchase the item for free and then leave a discount, DO NOT DO IT! This is against the terms of Amazon and could cause closure of your Amazon account.
With all of that being said, product testing does take some work. You have to sign up on company sites to test their products. I will post the links that I have below. Not all companies are open to product testers at the moment and when they are open, it is for a very short period of time. Therefore, if the links do not have a sign up button, then they are currently not open for new testers. Some companies also make you sign a NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) where you cannot share that you are testing their products with anyone. Many of the programs require you to fill out a profile with your information or interests to gear the items to fit your needs.
Your role as a product tester is to provide feedback from your experience using the product. Reviews help companies improve their product and also help consumers make wise purchases.
