Frequently Asked Questions
You might have a lot of questions! Here are some of our most frequently asked questions. Don't see something you want to know? We would love to hear from you with any questions you may have!
-Do I need to have a social media account to be able to do a Brand deal with Petsfluence?
Yes! We can only offer Brand deals to people who have a public social media account. Since Brands give something to you for free or even offer financial compensation they expect their product to be seen on your social media handles by your audience.
-Do I have to own a pet account?
No! Although most Brands prefer a pet account, you can have another type of social media account. As long as the focus lays on pets or you post your pets regularly the Brand may still be interested.
-Do I have to have a minimum of followers?
No! You do not have to have 10.000's of followers to sign up. You can even sign up from the day you start your social media account. If you have 100 followers today you can have 1000's of followers a couple weeks or months later already.
Although Brands will prefer a sizeable following count, they do not only look at followers. They rather look at your engagement (engagement rate on comments, likes etc.) In fact, many Brands love to work with Micro-Influencers.
We do need to be honest with you. If you have a very low engagement rate and very few followers there will not be many Brands that want to work with you. In that case try to get your engagement up by well... engaging with a lot of others and try applying for a Brand deal on a later date.
-Do I have to be on more social media platforms?
No!! We do campaigns on the most popular social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, Youtube, and Twitter and even more; but, you don't have to be on them all. If you are just on one social platform you are able to join any campaigns where the Brand is searching for influencers on that particular social media platform. Most commonly, campaigns are launched on Instagram, Facebook and Tiktok. Despite this, if you have a pet account on any other platform this might help you in getting a deal from Brands where the need is there to advertise on those platforms too.
-Do I need to pay or do I get paid?
There are a few different set ups. First of all, we are a platform that offers free products and paid collabs. There are some deals for micro-influencers where a generous discount is given instead. You gotta start somewhere right?
Compensation depends on how many followers you have and how high your engagement rate is. The higher these are, the more likely that a Brand is going to cover all the costs. To be clear, there are no standards in this. Some Brands just have larger budgets than others. Specific compensation details are provided prior to signing on to any Brand campaigns.
In paid collaborations you get paid to post on your social media. In this case you get paid AFTER your campaign is finished successfully and have sent us your insights and proof of completion.
Additionally, we have exclusive discounts on products and services that don't require you to do anything! As you can see there are numerous benefits to being part of the Petsfluencer family! What are you waiting for? Join us today!
-Can I contact the Brand myself in a campaign?
NO!! Every communication during campaigns goes through Petsfluence. We do not only represent you as a Petsfluencer but also the Brand. Brands often hire our services so they can focus on their core business instead of influence marketing. Doing this is in violation of our terms and conditions and will lead to us blocking you from our platform and social media. In extreme cases we may even need to take legal steps.
-Can I delete my account or make changes on it?
YES!! You can delete your account anytime or make any changes at any point in time. Know that our program does back-ups everyday and does keep data from previous back-ups. So, we will always have access to your previously provided data. This is to protect our business and partners as well as prevent influencers who have been banned from our platform from taking further advantage. You can find more info about this on our terms and conditions.
-Can I delete my promoted Post?
NO!! You can NEVER delete your promoted post. Petsfluence need to be able to see your insights even on a later date if needed. If in your breefing is stated differently your post is ALWAYS permanent and need to stay on your account for life. If stated differently in your briefing in a campaign you do not delete, but archive your post instead.
-Do i need to pay a monthly subscription?
No!! We do not work like typical companies where you pay to keep us on retainer. With Petsfluence you only pay for actual campaigns that are carried out! We do offer exclusivity contracts for Brands who desire them. This means that you will be the only Brand on our platform for a minimum of 3 months to a maximum of 6 months in your niche. If you are interested in this please reach out to us on our contact form or mention it in your sign up.
-Is there a minimum budget needed to start working with Petsfluence?
Yes, but our minimum budget is very low! You can start a one Influencer test campaign for only €7,5! We recommend starting with a larger budget for the best results. Petsfluence recognizes the value of new and small businesses and we want to make our services easily accessible to all. We'd love to be a part of your company's journey, helping you along the way, and celebrating the milestones together.
-Do I own the rights of the content that is posted by petsfluencers?
NO, you DO NOT own any content that is made by Petsfluencers. You DO have the right to reshare the content with appropriate credits given to the Petsfluencer on the social media platform of your choosing. You are able to use content in promotional needs, such as on your website, without credits. Please read our terms and conditions for further details.
Do you want to obtain licencing or promotional rights for specific content? Then you need to send us an offer and we will get in touch with our Petsfluencer to see if they are willing to sell their copyrights to you. Any direct contact with the Petsfluencer to buy these licencing or copy-rights without including Petsfluence will lead to us blocking your Brand from our platform and social media. In certain circumstances we might need to take legal steps if necessary.
-Can I contact the Petsfluencer myself to make last changes to a campaign?
NO!! All campaign communication MUST go through Petsfluence. We do not only represent you as a brand but also the Petsfluencer. Doing this will lead to us blocking you from our platform and social media. In certain circumstances we might need to take legal steps if necessary.
