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 6 ways to get more bookings:
1. Make your creators’ profiles shine
There are a couple things you can do to make your creators’ profile really shine.
First, upload a profile photo, so your creators’ profile looks attractive (and complete!) to brands who are browsing for creators to collaborate with.
Then, write something creative in your creators’ About sections. This is your opportunity to introduce your creators to brands and make a positive first impression, so write something about your creators and their social media that will really make them stand out from the crowd!
2. Add all Channels
Some brands look for creators in a specific channel. In other words, adding all your creators’ 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 is also a great way to keep track of insights and compare them to other creators.
Note: Make sure you reconnect your Instagram account every 60 days to ensure your creators’ insights are up-to-date.
3. Add external collaborations
Adding external collaborations is a good way to showcase some of your creators’ best work, especially if they haven’t had collaborations on inzpire.me yet.
Showing your creators’ past experience in content creation automatically boosts their image and credibility as a creator. It also lets brands know what they can expect from collaborating with your creators.
4. Give feedback
After the booking is completed, you and the brand will have the opportunity to review each other on your experiences, whether the experience was good or bad. inzpire.me is based on trust, so it's important to give honest and fair feedback.
Good feedback will be visible on both your agency’s and creators’ profiles. Brands give creators a score in three areas: Communication, Quality of Work, and Reliability. The better the reviews, the better the impression they’ll have on brands, and the more bookings they'll receive.
Feel free to message the brand if they haven't given any feedback after a booking.
5. Set your creators’ price ranges
Brands want to know if your creators are within their budgets. They’ll likely get more booking requests if you set their price ranges and collaboration offers in Settings in the sidebar menu.
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.
6. Share your creators’ media kit
Don’t just sit back and wait for brands to come to you! You can start actively reaching out to brands off the platform with your creators’ inzpire.me profiles, otherwise known as media kits, for collaborations.
To share your creators’ media kit, you’ll need to check that their profiles have High visibility. This will generate a link that you can add into your outreach emails to brands.
You can also add your creators’ link to your website, and your creators can add it to their social media bios!
