How to Be a Product Tester (In Australia)

Mummy Confession: I love trialing and reviewing products, especially for my baby!

Over the years as a mum, I have found several places which offer product tests for mums and babies, as well as places that just take your information and give it away to spam emails and phone calls. I have listed only the legitimate ones I have used below. I have actually signed up and received products from these companies.

Ive seen several ads on Facebook and other pages that claim to allow you to product test, but in exchange, they give your information to companies who spam your phone with calls and texts. So beware anytime you give your personal information.

In order to receive these free products, you do need to review these products, whether it’s online, on social media, or privately with the company giving out the products.

Social Soup– Social Soup is Australia’s largest influenced community. If picked for a trial, you help to influence the products a company creates and give reviews and feedback both on your social medias and on the social soup website.

Home Tester Club– Home Tester Club lets select people try and review products on the market, as well as provides some friends with products to try as well, giving them the opportunity to review and join in the club.

Mum’s Say by Kidspot– Kidspot Mum’s Say allows members to take part in exclusive product tests and events!

Mouths of Mums– I recently joined this one, and they have some great reviews on their site, along with the chance to have your say.

Black Box Australia Black Box Australia is a sample box which you review over social media as well as on their website. In order to qualify for your next box, you need to complete the reviews of the products once you receive your box.

Various Survey Companies– Many survey companies will email you chances to test out various products depending on your profile with them (and if you get in quickly). With these chances, however, you agree not to talk about the products you have tested. As you are helping to shape the products companies will release later, you may or may not see them in stores. Toluna has a specific place on their website to look out for product tests.

Various Baby Product Companies– Now, I wouldn’t be able to name any or all of them, because I don’t know when different places need product testers. My advice for this is to follow any Brand or Company on social media that you would like to try, and also sign up for email updates. If they need anyone, they will potentially email or post on Facebook or other social media. I have seen a few call outs, so the chances are likely if you follow all of the brands you love that you could see them as well. However, it’s not often and not guaranteed you will be chosen to test their products.

Now, all of these ways I have been able to test products and give my feedback to various brands and companies, so I’m not giving information on places I haven’t tried yet. Have you been a product tester before? How did you come across the opportunity?
