My First Non-Influencer Loot Crate Unboxing Guardians May 2017 Crate

I bought this Loot Crate, this is the first one that I have purchased in four years. I had been an influencer up until last month. It was a great gig. I started promoting Loot Crate when the company came on the scene. In that time they have grown into a tremendous company with several different crates. I always had a core crate sent to me for free to unbox and promote. The thing is, I didn’t change with the times. I did not switch from promotion to selling. I guess I kept thinking of Loot Crate as this small operation that needed people like me to promote it. But it exploded and there are tons of people doing unboxings and bringing in sales. I do not do that as well. I have an affiliate link https://benspark.com/LootCrateDX and a promo code that saves you on your purchases. That is BENSPARK at Checkout.

I wanted the Q-Fig of Rocket and Groot from this Crate so I bought a 3 month subscription.

This month’s crate was pretty sweet. It had items from Guardians of the Galaxy, Destiny, Star Wars and The Goonies, plus the pin was Avatar the Last Airbender. Here is the full unboxing.

4 Years With Loot Crate… Over

No More Loot Crate

I made this video, not out of bitterness or anger or spite. I’ve been extremely fortunate to have been able to review Loot Crate boxes for the past 4 years for free. I was one of the first people to ever review the crates to promote this newly formed company that wanted to grow. Loot Crate did grow. It grew and grew into an extremely popular company that has several different crates shipping out every month. I’ve been able to review Loot Crate, Loot Wear, Marvel Gear + Goods, and more.

I found out the other day that I won’t be receiving any more Loot Crates for free. My audience isn’t converting to sales very well and therefore it isn’t worth it to the company to send me Loot Crate for free to review if there isn’t anything for them in return. I completely understand this. It makes sense. It is also my fault. For the past four years I had the mindset of promotion and not sales. I simply told people about the great crates and didn’t try and sell people on signing up.

Sure, I have a discount code and some affiliate links. I add this to each of my videos:

I am an Affiliate for Loot Crate and you can order Loot Crate through my link and use the promo code BENSPARK for a discount. https://benspark.com/LootCrateDX

But that did not translate into sales because I had the mindset of promotion, not sales.

Loot Crate is something that I have enjoyed being a part of and I hope it is something that continues to grow and do well. I wish Matt and Chris and the rest of the team continued success with their company. If I ever get asked back I will be certain to not only promote by sell as this is a company I believe in and want to see succeed.

This mean that this is the end of me doing Loot Crate Unboxings? Yes and No. I will no longer be doing sponsored unboxings, however I purchased a 3 month subscription and will do some of my own unboxings with crates I purchased. I couldn’t miss out on the Guardians themed crate that is coming this month. It has items from these properties:


I wasn’t missing the Rocket and Groot statue that is in the crate.
