FEB 7, 2018:
It’s not just about being glam. Influencer marketing agency, Glambassador is looking for influencers to connect with brands who match their niche. They say they ‘operate similarly to a job bank platform where the brands are the employers and influencers are candidates. Brands have the ability to post campaigns (jobs) and influencers bid with proposals (resumes) and budget for that specific campaign.’ Here’s how it works:
Glambassador is free to use, so you’re pretty much guaranteed a profit from a successful campaign. Though it’s worth bearing in mind that they ‘retain 20% commission’, with lower rates and extra features for premium account holders.
By creating a professional profile on Glambassador, your social media profiles/blog will show up in the site’s search engines, connecting you with its 3,124 brand partners. You can also find campaigns you like and reach out to brands yourself – these projects are listed with brief and payment information, plus how many bids have already been received.
Learn from others
Through Glambassador, you will not only connect and collaborate with your favorite brands, but you’ll also get to know fellow bloggers and influencers like yourself. Don’t just take our word for it. We spoke briefly to Tarana Pascalle Pointing – a beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogger, with almost 7k followers on Instagram @pascallespendulum – about her experience with the online agency:
‘I’ve been with Glambassador for about a year and a half. I love the concept. But with a smaller following, I’ve not really had success [so far]. I think if you get lucky and/or have a larger following, it could be a great place to find work. I would say my top tip is to apply for as many campaigns as possible and keep checking what is new that comes up.’
Keep at it
Whether you choose to join an influencer agency/network or not, don’t forget: Persistence pays off. Good luck!
