Another great site I was introduced to recently is BrandBacker. This site is a WOMM (Word of Mouth Marketing) company with some great opportunities to work with different companies with different types of compensation ranging from samples to blog promotion to payment and everything in between.
There are not a whole lot of companies with sampling available to Canadians, but there are some and although you may not be accepted to each one, it's an enjoyable process and getting free stuff is always fun.
I haven't been with them for long, and my blog is still a small one, so I've only completed two campaigns to date. I am waiting on samples for two others, so 2015 is already off to a promising start.
The thing that sets BrandBacker apart is the fact that you have interaction with the companies you're working with. So far, I have nothing but glowing reviews. There have been some bumps, but working with the company who's brand you're representing instead of the WOMM company makes a difference - they see you as a customer and one who has the potential to bring in more customers at that.
My very first campaign came from Markwins Beauty. You can find them on the web at markwinsbeauty.com, follow them on Twitter @markwins4girls, or find them on Facebook.
This was my first one, and my bumpiest. I was originally accepted to a different campaign, but received the wrong samples, so Brandbacker decided to switch me to this one and suggested I contact Markwins in regards to the incorrect samples and also that this campaign comes with three samples (mascara, lipgloss, and nail polish), but I had only received the nail polish and lipgloss. They did not answer or address my issue, but it is what it is and I let it go. Although I mentioned in my blog post that a third product sample was not received and would not be reviewed, I did really enjoy the products and gave the samples I had an honest review. They have offered two campaigns since and I have not been accepted to either.

My second campaign is from Kiss Me Organics, who were kind enough to send me a full sized package of organic matcha green tea powder. You can find them on the web at kissmeorganics.com, follow them on Twitter @kissmeorganics, or find them on Facebook. This campaign went smoothly from beginning to end and the people at Kiss Me Organics are delightful to deal with.

I'm waiting on two samples from Hyperbiotics, and you'll see a review on those once I've tried them.
If you have a blog, I suggest you give them a try. Trying out new, exciting, and sometimes innovative products is great, but getting them for free to blog about is better! You can sign your blog up at brandbacker.com.
