I have sent products but have not seen a post.
If you have sent products, please ensure you have submitted a tracking link in the Dashboard for Creators to refer to. If it has been more than 7 days since the package arrived at the Creator’s residence, please utilize the nudge button and reach out to the Campaign Support team if you have any further questions or concerns.
I don't like the Creators post. What can I do?
If a Creator you have Activated posts their content but you are not happy with it, please score their ShoutOut and leave them constructive feedback as to what they could have improved on. Remember, Creators see the Campaign Preview and Requirements prior to opt-ing into the collaboration. If you feel they totally missed the mark, reach out to the firstname.lastname@example.org team and we can talk about the best solution and next steps.
Can I decline a Creator? Can I accept them later if I change my mind?
If you are still sorting through the Pending Tab in your Dashboard and are not sure wether to Activate or Decline a Creator who has opted in, first start by reviewing the Creator’s profile by clicking on their name. A card will automatically pop up where you will see Audience Demographics, Past Campaign Performance, and direct links to their social media account feeds. You can also dig deeper and utilize the Deep Insights Report which will populate a 10 paged PDF with analytics to aid you in your decision of whether to Activate and collaborate with the Creator or not.
If I accept a Creator, can I decline them later if I change my mind?
After Activating a Creator, if you wish to then Decline them for some reason, the request will go to a Campaign Specialist for review where they will then follow up with you regarding the request. Once Declined, Creators will show up in the ‘Missed Opportunities tab’ where you will be able to ‘re-invite’ Creators if you change your mind. Please note that the ‘re-invite’ function is subject to the Creator’s approval. If they do agree to the invitation, their name will populate in the Pending Tab.

Why is the @creatorco.community photo tag on the Campaign Preview?
The @creatorco.community photo tag is on the Campaign Preview so that Creator.co can capture the Analytics from their post performance. The photo tag will not be seen on the caption of the post and is vital to be able to see analytics in the Brand Dashboard.
What happens if I send a Creator a package for a campaign and they claim they never received it?
Creator.co is not responsible for any shipment delays, mishaps, replacements, or fees. Brands are responsible for making sure shipments and redemption codes are sent at a timely manner, information is submitted correctly in the Dashboard for each Activated Creator, and is sent to the right location using the addresses found in the Brand Dashboard beside each Creators’ name. In the event the Address is missing for some reason, contact the firstname.lastname@example.org team or DM that Creator directly to get their current address.
How long do I have to decide (activate/ decline) a Creator?
After a Creator opt’s-in to a campaign, the Brand has 30 days to Activate or Decline. After 30 days, the Creator’s application will expire automatically. This feature was built in to ensure the Creator is not waiting extended periods of time to hear back from the Brand regarding the collaboration.
