FAQs

TINT’s powerful audience segmentation uses a mixture of profile data, zero-party data, and social data to hyper-target consumers and delivers a customized pre-qualification survey to identify an ideal selection of consumers to sample your product. You can target consumers by demographics, shopping habits, lifestyle behavior, and brand preferences. 

No. Unlike other sampling communities, we believe strongly that the only incentive a consumer should have to share about your brand is the sampling experience. We will never pay our community or tell participants what to say, and we will always encourage honest feedback. Our built-in FTC disclosures ensure all content is authentic and transparent.  

Your dedicated team will handle everything from start to finish. Each campaign includes a custom qualification survey, a branded campaign page, and social sharing tools with automatic FTC disclosure. Additionally, we will collect and deliver all rights-approved UGC as well as a post-campaign survey to measure lift in purchase conversion and brand favorability. 

Our campaigns typically deliver anywhere from 1,000-5,000+ targeted samples, and our fulfillment partners will handle distributing and shipping your samples to participants. Each sampling box includes a specially designed insert and custom branding to seed high-quality UGC.
