The greatest benefit from a Gifting and Unboxing campaign is the opportunity for your intended audience to witness a genuine and enthusiastic reaction to your products. Your influencers are intended not to know what is in their boxes which will exhibit an excitement that cannot be replicated. 

Gifting and Unboxing campaigns are also a great way to start your relationship with an influencer. They will get a feel for your products and you will get an idea of what it is like to work with that influencer. Your influencers total engagements will determine whether your brand is reaching your target audience in an effective way. 


Tips for Gifting and Unboxing Campaigns.

Using creative packaging makes the unboxing more memorable and fun. Influencers can express excitement not only on the products but also the care and creativity from the brand. Design the packaging related to the product inside to give a hint to what the surprise could be. For example, if your brand is a makeup company and you are running a Gifting and Unboxing Campaign to promote the launch of a new eyeshadow palette, you could design your box to look like a giant version of the palette.

Send custom products to your influencers. This is a great way to make your influencers feel special and their excitement will show through to their audience.

Send limited edition products to create excitement and demand. Have your influencers mention limited edition products and when the cutoff date will be.  

Make sure your influencers tell their audience where they can purchase the products shown in their video. Also, make sure your influencers mention if a product is either limited edition or a custom product and where to find similar options, if available.
