inzpire.me is a marketplace where brands and creators can connect across multiple channels, including Snapchat, Instagram, Youtube, and Website blogs. We make it easy for brands to discover, connect with, and pay creators to create and publish inspiring stories. Learn more about inzpire.me.
How does inzpire.me work?
When you sign up on inzpire.me, you create a profile by connecting your social media channel(s) and providing some information about yourself. Brands will search for creators on the site using our smart filters. If a brand is interested in working with you, they’ll offer you paid opportunities to post sponsored content on your social media channel(s) by requesting a booking.
The booking will include a creative brief with collaboration expectations, a due date, and a budget. It's up to you to decide if you'd like to work with a brand - you can either accept or decline the request, or you can negotiate the terms of the proposed agreement.
How do I sign up?
Joining inzpire.me is easy! Go to www.inzpire.me and select For creators & influencers on the inzpire.me homepage. Then, click Sign up for free.
Is there a minimum age requirement to sign up?
Yes. To sign up, you must be at least 18 years old.
I don't have a large social media following. Can I still join inzpire.me?
Of course you can! If you have 1,000 followers or more, you can sign up. We don’t have requirements for a large following because we know some brands prefer to work with smaller creators. Signing up with inzpire.me is free and booking requests are made every day, so there's really no downside to joining!
How do I determine what price ranges I want to set?
When you set price ranges for different types of collaborations, you’re not locked into these price ranges. Rather, the price ranges act as a guide to the brand about roughly how much you’re expecting for different types of collaborations.
The actual budget will be suggested by the brand when they send you a booking request. You can negotiate the terms of the agreement. We recommend that you base your price ranges on previous bookings or choose an amount on the lower end of your expectations. This will likely get you more bookings as you're getting started and enable you to start building your profile.
If you haven't worked with brands before, you can use our Instagram Pricing Calculator, or get inspired by other creators with similar reach, impressions, and engagement, to determine how much you can charge brands for collaborations.
How can I profit?
You set the price. When a brand contacts you, they may suggest a different price depending on what the job is. However, you’re free to negotiate the terms of the agreement until you're happy with your pay. We charge a 10% fee, which means that 90% of what the brand pays you is yours.
Can I connect multiple profiles/pages to each channel?
Currently, you can only connect one profile/page for each of the 7 different channels on inzpire.me. However, we do have several suggestions that may help.
Pick the best profile/page for each channel and create one superprofile on inzpire.me.
Create multiple profiles on inzpire.me based on, for example, a category (ie. travel or inspiration).
Add links to other profiles/pages in "About" on your inzpire.me profile.
How often do my followers/subscription numbers update?
We update the numbers every 1-2 hours. If you notice that your follower numbers aren’t updating, you can try disconnecting and reconnecting your social media channels. Learn how to do that here.
What are your currency options?
Currently, we have four currency options: EUR (€), USD ($), GBP(£), and NOK. However, if you’d like to withdraw your payment in a currency other than EUR, USD, GBP, or NOK, the payout can be exchanged to your local currency. You can switch your currency under Wallet in the menu on the left-hand side of the webpage.
Do creators pay to use inzpire.me? What's the bottom line?
Creating an account with inzpire.me is 100% free. If you receive a booking request, accept and complete the booking. Upon completion, we’ll charge a 10% service fee. You get 90% of what the brand pays. Let's say that you’re being paid 100€ for a booking. This means that your payout will be 90€. This is the only fee on the site.
Do you have an app?
Yes, we do! Make sure to download the app here.
Are the passwords of my social media channels well protected?
When you connect a social media channel, we don’t gain access to any of your passwords.The channel provides us only with information pertaining to the number of followers you have, likes, etc. The rest of your information is protected by the channel. For example, if you connect an Instagram account to inzpire.me, you log into Instagram, and Instagram provides us only with the number of followers you have on the channel.
What if I'm not a brand or creator?
We’re not only looking for creators in the traditional sense. Anyone who posts great content on any channel, meets our platform guidelines, and is open to the idea of collaborating with brands is free to sign up! You choose if you want to work with the brands that contact you by simply accepting or declining the booking request.
What brands are you working with?
We're constantly working on recruiting new brands that will be a good fit for our pool of creators. Brands on the platform include Monster Energy, Warner Music, Vespa, and Unicef.
Here are some examples of recent collaborations:
Our goal is to work with a diverse group of brands of any size and across numerous industries. This ensures that there are plenty of opportunities for awesome collaborations for all brands and creators.
Can you give me a quick tutorial on how bookings on inzpire.me work after I've signed up?
1. To view your recent activities (eg. new messages from brands), check Recent next to your name in the upper right corner on inzpire.me.
2. When you receive a booking request, you’ll receive an email notification or a push notification on our mobile app. The request will also appear under Collaborations in the menu on the left-hand side of the webpage. You can also message the brand and suggest a different budget, date, etc. You can decide whether to accept or decline the booking request, just make sure you reply as soon as you can so that the booking request doesn't expire.
Note: Booking requests expire after 7 days, so be sure to respond to them!
3. When you’re ready to complete the booking request, you may be required to upload Deliverables - your sponsored content and their results - to your booking before delivering it to the brand.
If you mentioned the brand (ie: @inzpire_me) in your Instagram sponsored content, you don’t need to add any sponsored content and results to your booking.
They’ll be automatically fetched from Instagram by our platform for you.
You can simply click Mark as Delivered on the top right-hand side of the page once you’ve fulfilled the brief!
4. You automatically get paid as soon as you deliver a booking and the brand confirms that the booking is complete. You can withdraw your funds from your Wallet. Make sure your payment information is correct. You can edit your billing address, etc. under Settings.
There are many sites like this one, can you guarantee a booking?
The reason our website is more interesting to brands than other similar sites is the number of creators available and the fact that we represent 7 of the most important social media channels, not just one, as most sites do. It makes it easier for brands to find a good fit for their marketing campaigns. We can't guarantee bookings, but we’re growing quickly. We’re confident that we’ll become the #1 website globally where brands search for creators, which will make inzpire.me an important platform for you to be registered on.
Is this an exclusive network?
This is not an exclusive network. You're free to join as many networks as you'd like.
Do I need to add any branding (badge, etc) to my site or social channels outside of the actual campaign post(s)?
The brand will include what they want you to do in the campaign brief (like adding a hashtag or other brand elements). If there are things in the brief that you're not comfortable committing to, we recommend letting the brand know by messaging the brand within the booking request before accepting the booking. It's important for us that you're in charge of your own personal brand.
Is there any minimum number of campaigns/opportunities that I must accept?
There's no minimum campaigns you have to accept. When you receive a booking request, you can choose to either accept or decline it. We recommend that you only work with the brands that you love!
How do I delete my account?
Currently, we close accounts manually. For account closures, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
