TRND is a free product testing site accessible from United Kingdom, France, Belgium, ... It has already allowed us to test chocolate spread in June 2018.
Since we had been selected and this project is now over, this is an opportunity to show you how to test products for free with TRND and how it works.
IMPORTANT : if you are not yet registered on TRND, it's time to do it by clicking here to be notified of upcoming products to test.
To know which product you can test right now, go to TRND and go to the "Projects" section of the site.
Note that the products offered may be accessible only in one or more countries.
In our case, in Belgium, we had the opportunity to participate to this project: : Balade I Love Choco
To be automatically notified of new projects and try to test a maximum of products for free, log on TRND, go to the menu at the top right, then click on "My profile".
Then, at the bottom of the page, don't forget to enable the "Inform me about new projects trnd ... by EMAIL" option.
Click on a recent project, in our case, that of Balade.
In the "Infos" tab, TRND will tell you how many members will be able to test this product for free, as well as some information about the product to be tested.
In this case, the "Balade I Love Choco" chocolate spread (hazelnut and pure black) that is without palm oil, but must be kept cool (in the fridge), because this product contains milk.
A little further down, you will find what is expected of you.
In summary :
- test the product
- share this product with your family and/or friends
- share your experience online : on your blog or on social networks (Facebook, Instagram, ...)
This will allow the brand to know what people think about their new product and also to be known through word of mouth.
At the bottom of this page, you will find a "Let's go !" button to participate in this project.
Note that the recruitment period to participate in a product test is always limited.
It's therefore recommended to register directly on the site to be notified as soon as a new product testing will appear on TRND.
If you are selected to test this product, you will receive an email from trnd where they will specify that you have been selected for the project.
Several days or weeks later, trnd will let you know that the welcome packs are on the way.
