It pays to have Klout!

Posted on Dec 2, 2013 in Marketing, Social Media |

Seriously, it pays to blog!  Well, mostly in freebies so far!  Last month I told you all about the Poshly Custom-Tailored Freebies I received.  I’m still giving those products a good testing, so I’ll have reviews for them soon I hope!  Since then (okay, and a bit before that) I’ve been paying more attention to Klout, more specifically the Perks section.

Blowfish for Hangovers Klout has come through with a variety of perks that suit the variety of things I blog about perfectly!  First, it was Blowfish for Hangovers.  I intended to give it a good try after my planned Halloween shenanigans, but I ended up with a cold so I didn’t drink.  I think I’ll be really tying one on at Thanksgiving, so let’s hope I’ll be able to test on good old Black Friday!  Check out Blowfish for Hangovers on Twitter!

Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman BrushesNext, I was invited to host a #RTGirlsNightIn and provided with a fantastic set of makeup brushes from Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman.  My small Girl’s Night was a success and the brushes are fabulous!  I haven’t worked with makeup brushes this nice since I was doing stage makeup in college, and let me tell you, it makes a difference!  I’m stoked to have these brushes and I think I converted a few of my friends!  Check out Real Techniques on Twitter or Real Techniques on Facebook!

MOO CardsChanging gears from beauty products, the next Klout Perk I received was 50 custom business cards from MOO Cards.  Again, I’m totally a believer in MOO now!  Coming from a background working for a professional printing company for 5 years, I’m very picky about the quality of my business cards and where I get them from.  I remember getting a set of cards from MOO when they first came out, back when you could only get the very small cards (I think they’re still in a drawer somewhere in the recesses of my desk!).  I’m super happy that the printing looks good, the stock is nice and thick, and even the obligatory Klout logo looks good!  More on these in a later post, but in the meantime, check out MOO Cards on Twitter or MOO Cards on Facebook!

Back to beauty, just today I received TWO packages – a Klout Perk from Freeman and my very first Vox Box from Influenster!

Freeman Feeling Beautiful MasksThe Freeman Perk contained three lovely masks with a great card full of suggestions for creating a Multi-Mask routine for folks like me with combination skin (i.e. oily in some places, dry in others).  There’s a Freeman Feeling Beautiful Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask, an Avocado & Oatmeal Facial Clay Mask, and a Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask!  The first two I’ve seen on shelves before but haven’t tried yet and the third I’ve plain never seen!  I can’t wait to try them out!  Check out Freeman Beauty on Twitter, Freeman Beauty on Facebook, or Freeman Beauty on Instagram!

I have more Klout Perks coming  to tell you about soon!  Check out the brands who were kind enough to send me some stuff to try!  You can also give me more Klout by giving me a +K on these topics and check out my Influenster profile too!
