Feeling discouraged


I am getting very discouraged once again as I am STILL not being selected for anything at all. I hope I am doing everything right! I have quite a few badges and points...I comment on forums in the community... and I apply for everything that is offered and answer in the best way possible! Any tips?

All you can do is wait, I'd try not to hang your hat on it as 'guaranteed'. Simply put (hope this isn't too cruel or rude) you can do everything right and still not get picked. If they're offering 250 chances to try and there are over 5,000 applications (and somehow I feel there is probably waaaay more than that), it can be a small chance. I try to think of them like competitions; enter and forget.

I really have no way if knowing, they might also take into account social media followers/how active you are there. The only thing I know is you must have written 5 reviews and writing reviews often on the site is probably a good idea too. They also take the survey into account, so not everyone will be right for every product.

Hope you get selected soon!

I do not know if I am 100% right but to my understanding...chicks are selected depending on what the brand is looking for, I mean, demographics. So if we fit the profile we get selected. I know that being active on the site is important too.

I was dying to try a few products that I completely thought they were a perfect match for me but I wasn’t selected.

I have so much fun on chickadvisor as I like reading and writing reviews, lately I haven’t been very active due to various health problems and surgeries that have kept me away from it.

I have been selected for a few campaigns and I’m grateful for it.

Don’t give up. Sooner or later you might get something.

Thank you both! I appreciate your input! I will keep trying!

I believe like the previous posters said it all comes down to the qualifying survey defining who is best qualified to test the products. I am very active on the forum and review regularly and I had roughly an eight or nine month dry spell. My last campaign before the Knorr one I got selected for was a Nivea campaign in May 2017. Don't get discouraged just keep being active on the site and eventually you will get accepted. Theres so many wonderful campaigns open at the moment. Im really hoping to get into the Neutrogena campaign as my current sunblock is running out but the Aveeno one looks great too. I just love skin care products so much. I'm somewhat obsessed. Best wishes and hope you get a campaign soon.

Good luck to all the ladies in a dry spell, sending my best wishes!

It is totally frustrating cause I totally felt like I would've been chosen for the Vileda mop cause I clean for a living and I've mentioned it in my profile on Twitter when I applied for it. So I totally feel discouraged as you do.

I am feeling very discouraged because I have been a member of Chick Advisory for almost a year now and STILL HAVE NOT BEEN CHOSEN for even one campaign.

@wonderwhatif and @Shystarr79 Thank you for your best wishes!

Laura, that shitty. We should get an email even if we aren't chosen and why. We need some solid answers about how to get the product we apply for!!!

Just read all these and looks like there's a mix of people who get chosen and those who don't. I am new to the site but my gf recommended it to me as she's been gettting a lot of samples! I am not sure what the secret is but i know she is persistent so that might indeed be the trick!

Be Patient

As many other commenters above stated, be patient! Demographics play a huge role as there’s so many chicks who apply for each campaign. Everyone has been in the position where you really wanted to be chosen or thought you would be chosen, but weren’t. When 2000 people apply for 500 spots they have to make sure they are making the best choices of people to test and represent that brand. Stay active and keep applying. It will come soon :)
