A Custom Content Campaign provides one with the flexibility to work with selected influencers across multiple channels in unique ways. This provides influencers with the ability to market content using the voice that their audience is familiar with and have already proven responsive to.
- To begin, click New Campaign, followed by Create Custom Content:
- This will take you to the campaign "setup" page. Here, you can provide your influencers with a general overview of your campaign.
Be sure to review our Best Practices for help with completing this page.
- Once you're satisfied with your campaign's Setup, click next to fill out your campaign Instructions:
Special Instructions: Clearly indicate any special criteria you want to set such as (if applicable): geography, demographic, age group, gender, food/dietary restrictions, work deadlines, and more.

Non-Cash: Click here to fill in what you'd like to compensate your influencer with if not money.
- Clicking next will take you to the final step: Review and Publish. Here you can go over all of the details you've filled out in the steps prior.
