Join Creator Campaigns

Find and join creator campaigns

This feature is only accessible to specific impact.com editions or add-ons. Contact us to upgrade your account and get access!

You can browse and apply to eligible brand campaigns or get invited by brands to join campaigns either in the Campaigns marketplace or easily find new campaigns from your dashboard.

When joining a creator campaign, there are a few different scenarios:

You have a contract with the brand

If you apply to a creator campaign from the marketplace while already joined to the associated program, the brand will need to approve your application before you can start working as a creator for that campaign.

Alternatively, if the brand invites you to its creator campaign via the marketplace, you will be approved automatically upon accepting the invitation.

You have no contract with the brand

If you apply to a creator campaign via the marketplace without first joining the associated program, impact.com registers this as a double application to both the campaign and the program. The brand will then be able to choose whether it wants to approve your application to the program alone, or both the program and the campaign. If the brand approves your program application, you'll work merely as a partner to the brand, and the brand may approve your campaign application at any future point.

Alternatively, if the brand invites you to its creator campaign via the marketplace, you will be approved automatically to both the campaign and the program upon accepting the invitation.

You join via campaign Invite link

If a brand invites you to its creator campaign via a campaign Invite link, they are essentially inviting you to both the creator campaign and the associated program (if you aren't already joined to the program). If you sign up via the link, you will only be approved automatically to the program. The brand will still need to approve your campaign application before you can start working as a creator for that campaign.

    What should I look out for in a contract?

    Be sure to read through the terms carefully as it specifies essential details such as payment timelines and other specified business terms. Here's a guide to some of the terms you might see and what they mean for you as the creator:

    Term

    Description

    Action locking

    This is the period after an action is tracked, during which a brand needs to confirm the payment for that action.

    Pay Creator

    This option enables the brand to pay you once all the tasks are complete and the content is live.

    Payment Scheduling

    The amount of time between an action locking and you being paid out for driving that action. Brands can choose to schedule payments for locked actions at a later date than when they lock.

    Statement of Work (SoW)

    Once you start working on a specific campaign, you will accept the brand's SOW. The SOW specifies your deliverables, such as the type of content and the platform on which you'll post it, and compensation for these deliverables. Every campaign you work on has a SoW.
