Suggested Actions

To ensure successful collaborations with brands, certain actions must be taken into consideration after you follow Ainfluencer user and community guidelines. Here are some suggested tips that will assist you in securing more collaborations:

1. Exploring brands

As an influencer, it is important to regularly explore the variety of campaigns published by businesses on a daily basis. The Ainfluencer marketplace receives a multitude of new campaigns regularly, so it is essential to visit the Explore page on your app daily to remain updated.

2. Making offers

When making offers to campaigns, it is crucial to ensure that they match your country, category, or other specific criteria that brands may have. Some campaigns are invite-only, so only make offers to them if you are invited. Before making an offer, carefully review the campaign details.

3. Getting invited

To increase your chances of being invited to campaigns, it is recommended to remain active on the platform. Promptly respond to messages and offers, close as many deals as possible, and aim to receive 5-star reviews from brands. By doing so, you can establish a strong reputation and increase your exposure to new campaigns.

4. Sending offers

To increase your chances of collaboration with brands, ensure that your offers are relevant and personalized. Brands are more likely to work with influencers who have taken the time to read the campaign details and tailor their offers to the brand’s specific requirements. Therefore, take the time to carefully craft thoughtful offers that demonstrate your understanding of the brand and its goals.

5. Getting reviews

Brands can leave public reviews of their experience with you, which will be visible to other brands. To receive positive reviews, it is important to provide excellent service and deliver on the brand’s expectations.

Payment Tips

Upon receiving offers and collaborating with brands, it is important to be aware of the payment process. Here are some essential points to consider:

1. Commission

Ainfluencer applies a 20% commission on each campaign to ensure prompt payment and simplify the campaign process for you. This commission is deducted from the payment made by the brand.

Upon closing a deal, Ainfluencer secures the funds in an escrow account until the campaign is successfully delivered to the brand by you.

3. Payout

Once the campaign is successfully delivered, you may request your payout 7 days later and give our team up to 3 days to process it via PayPal.

Conclusion

In conclusion, following the above-mentioned rules and guidelines is essential when working as an influencer on Ainfluencer. Rest assured that Ainfluencer user and community guidelines are put in place to ensure that the influencer and the brand are protected and that campaigns are successful.
