If someone wants you to pay them for access to a creator, your response should be a polite “nope.” You can avoid the commissions and maintain a more authentic relationship with your creator on your own, with the help of influencer marketing software like GRIN. The only commissions we allow are the ones you set for your creators, through affiliate and discount codes.
Believable creator endorsements come from having an authentic relationship with the brand. And you can’t have an authentic relationship without direct, open communication. That’s why GRIN’s email integration makes keeping in touch simple, and even provides templates you can create and customize to send to up to 100 of your creators at once.
Getting rid of the middleman means creators aren’t obligated to pay up, either. GRIN cuts out that icky transaction and helps you connect directly with creators who simply love your brand and want to help you build it—without having to “buy in” to participate.
GRIN is an absolute LIFE SAVER! I spent too much time in the past organizing my team of ambassadors using a Google sheet. Communication was all over the place – Hours spent building orders for Shopify are now a BREEZE! Knowing I have the support of this software I can grow our influencer marketing with the satisfaction it will be done with ease!
