You’ve created a profile, and brands know your creators are game to collaborate, but now you want to get in the game. There are several reasons why you would want to increase your number of booking requests:
- You get to pick and choose your creators’ collaborations (who doesn’t love options)
- You can increase your creators’ total earnings (more money sounds pretty sweet)
- Your creators are looking for exciting content to keep their followers inspired and engaged (because telling interesting stories is what it’s all about).
To get the ball rolling, here are 5 ways to get more bookings:
1. Make your creators’ profiles shine
There are 3 things you can do to make your creators’ profiles really shine.
First, upload a cover photo and profile photo, so the profiles look attractive (and complete!) to brands who are browsing for creators to collaborate with.
Second, add all the topics the creators like to post about in their social media channels, so they'll pop up in more search results when brands look for specific creators to partner up with.
Lastly, write something creative in About Me. This is one of the first impressions they’ll make on a brand, so write something about the creators and their social media that will really make them stand out from the crowd!
2. Upload IG Audience Insights
Brands use Insights: Audience Demographics to search for creators who have followers in their target audience. Working with creators who have the right audience can help them reach relevant consumers. To attract a brand's interest, it's important that your creators’ Audience Demographics are accurate and up-to-date! This can be done by the creators. Learn more here
3. Add all Channels
Some brands look for creators in a specific channel. In other words, adding all their channels will make them relevant to more brands. Creators can add up to 7 different channels, and brands will be able to see what distribution power they hold. Adding channels are also a great way to keep track of their number of followers and compare them to other creators. Adding channels can be done by the creators.
4. Give Endorsements and Feedback
Brands can sort any selection of creators based on price, endorsements, and feedback, so it's important that you gather positive ones! Creators can give your creators endorsements, and you can endorse them as well.
Additionally, brands can give your creators feedback after you complete a booking, and it's a way to reward awesome work. It also helps create a trustworthy community!
Feel free to message the brand if they haven't given your creators feedback after a booking.
5. Name Your Price
We obviously think your creators are worth a million bucks and no brand should ever pay them less, but underpricing can be a neat trick to get a couple booking requests going and gain some reviews on their profiles. We suggest browsing for similar creators to benchmark your creators. Remember that you can always negotiate on price if you're not happy with the initial budget brands offer your creators.
