PROFILE & PORTFOLIO:
As you’re getting started make sure your profile & portfolio show off why your content is worth sharing.
We’ve made it easy for you to identify the type of gig that best fits your skills and interests. Available gigs are labeled as: content creation, or have the social network noted and number of followers needed to apply.
Browse through the available gigs to find one that’s a great fit for you. Read the brief carefully — you’ll be referring to it throughout the gig. The brief will include content creation needs, your posting timeline, posting instructions, legal stuff, just the real nooks and crannies of your gig. Make sure you’re ready to deliver what they’re asking for.
Not interested in the gig after checking out the brief? You can select “Not Interested,” let us know why this opportunity wasn’t for you, and the gig will be cleared out of your available gig queue.
Once you’ve found a gig that gets your gears turning, get applying. The application might ask you for a description of your idea for the content or to select which of the brand’s product you’d like to feature — all the specifics for what the gig requires. When applying you’ll also include your bid- the amount you would like to be paid to complete all of the materials in the timeline listed in the brief.
Read our FAQ for guidance on how to bid.
Once you submit your bid, brands will consider all of the applications for the gig and you’ll hear back one of two ways.
- Accept — Congrats! Head on to the next step.
