RULES AND GUIDELINES – GENERAL

We believe that consumers should always be put first with sponsored posts. Therefore, both influencers and brands need to ensure they apply the latest best practice so that no campaign or post is false or misleading. Influnite expects that all users comply with all applicable laws and industry self regulation. This means that all influencer marketing posts facilitated through Influnite should be transparent and labeled with appropriate disclosures.

RULES AND GUIDELINES – BRAND

Be responsive. Please appreciate the energy each Influencer has invested into their post proposals by responding to each one quickly. This will also prevent Influencers having a negative experience with your brand.

RULES AND GUIDELINES – INFLUENCER

Time is the essence. Post must stay on the top of your feed for minimum 10 hours and on your platform for 30 days. Plus content must not have been published anywhere prior to you submitting it to the brand.

Authenticity is the key. If you wouldn’t recommend the brand for free – don’t recommend it for money.

All imagery submitted must be owned and captured by you, unless otherwise directed by the brand. We work exclusively with Influencers who’ve organically grown their audience, therefore if you’re misrepresenting the size of your audience or engagement in your content, we reserve the right terminate your INFLUNITEaccount.

Quality over quantity. If you’re seen to be recommending competing brands in quick succession or over-populating your feed with sponsored posts, you’ll lose credibility with your audience.
