What's the difference between an Elite Influencer and a Pupfluencer?
Accounts with more than 25,000 followers are eligible to receive payment as an “elite influencer.” Elite influencers can specify what they will charge for a feed post or story post when requesting products. If you’re new to Pupfluence, you can register as an Elite Influencer when you fill out the Registration Form. Existing influencers can send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and request we update your account to Elite.
What are the typical review requirements?
Most brands require influencers to make 1-2 feed posts and one website review. A few brands have different requirements, so be sure to read the requirements carefully before applying.
How will I know if I get chosen to work with a vendor?
We will send you an email if you are chosen to review the requested product and ask you to fill out an Agreement to move forward with the collaboration. For some brands, you may also be added to a group chat on Instagram with other influencers who will be reviewing the same product.
To ensure you receive our emails, we recommend adding email@example.com to your contacts list.
I don't meet the minimum follower count. Can I still request to review a product?
Most brands are strict about the minimum requirements they set and may not consider accounts that do not meet the minimum follower count. However, from time-to-time, brands may still accept accounts that have high engagement and produce good, quality content. It doesn’t hurt to submit a request and see what happens!
How long does it take to find out if I'm accepted to review a product?
The amount of time varies from brand to brand. Some brands choose influencers frequently (on a weekly basis), some select a few accounts per month, and others take up to one month or longer to even filter through their requests.
As mentioned above, you will be notified via email to let you know your request has been approved. If you haven’t been contacted after a month or so, feel free to send another request.
My account has grown since I first submitted a request. Should I send another one?
That’s fantastic news! Typically, it isn’t necessary for you to submit another request unless you initially didn’t meet the brand’s minimum follower count. Each brand you apply to work with visits your social media account and will of course take into consideration your growth.
If you haven’t been contacted after a month or so, feel free to send another request.
I'm no longer interested in reviewing a product I requested. What should I do?
We get it — life happens and our needs change. A product that interested you months ago may no longer serve a purpose in your current situation. Please contact us via email or send us a message on Instagram about your pending requests and we will try our best to assist you.
If you are approved to review a product you are no longer interested in, please let us know you wish to opt out ASAP so the brand doesn’t end up shipping their product to you.
Please note: If you fail to communicate that you wish to opt out, you will be responsible for fulfilling the post requirements outlined on our website since you agreed to them by submitting the initial request. If you cannot fulfill them, you will be asked to return the product to the brand at your own expense.
What do I do after completing my requirements?
After completing your requirements, please submit a Post Submission Form. This will mark your request as Completed, and lets us know you completed all of your requirements.
Can I delete my sponsored post?
The brands would prefer you leave up the post indefinitely. We understand influencers often like to clean up their feeds. Your feed posts should remain up for a minimum of 6 months.
Elite Influencers FAQ
I'm an Elite Influencer. How do get paid collabs?
All current opportunities are listed under the menu Influencer Opportunities. When completing your request, please make sure to input the rate you charge for either one feed or one story post. Please disregard the number of posts required listed under Posting Requirements. Each vendor will likely pay for only one feed post, one story post or both.
How do I know which vendors are willing to pay for posts?
To make it easier on you, we’ve marked which vendors have notified us that they are willing to pay for posts from Elite Influencers. You can find these on the Paid Collaborations page. If there are other vendors listed who you would love to work with, don’t hesitate to place a request! Many vendors are willing to pay if an exceptional page comes along.
How do I submit posts for review?
We ask that all Elite Influencers send their draft posts for approval to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to posting. This allows the vendor to review your post and make any necessary edits, and it also ensures that we have payment ready for you.
In your emails, please include a full copy of your caption and the image(s) or videos you plan to use. If you are submitting a draft story, please prepare the story on Instagram or Facebook, save the image and submit this as your draft.
How do I get paid after making my sponsored post?
In order to receive payment via PayPal, please send your post to @pupfluence on Instagram or email to email@example.com with your PayPal email. Payments are typically made within 24 hours.
