We match brands (like Google, Ulta Beauty, Panda Express, and many more) with creators on different platforms who want to work with that brand. These collaborations usually center on content about products, events, or services.
Logging into your Instagram account DOES NOT give us access to your account. We use it as a verification method to make sure you’re really the person who owns the account. We cannot view your private information or post on your behalf.
All you need to do to get started is create an account here on Studio. You should be sure to include your primary and secondary social media profiles so you're considered on any platform that you're active on. Once you've registered, our team will email you as soon as a project we think you'll love is available!
Our talent team saw something special in your social media profiles and wanted to invite you to get creative with us and our brands.
We'd love to have you join our network even if you're outside the U.S. Our clients are international and we have campaigns around the world.
We want to work with you because we like what you're doing already, not because we want to change it. Each campaign *does* include a brief that outlines basic guidelines for the project, but we always try to build in as much editorial and creative freedom as possible.
So we can ship you products without bugging you for it every time you have a collaboration with us.
No, we never charge influencers to work with us. It is completely free for you to use.
Working with Obviously
Many projects are only open to a select group, such as "women in Chicago" or "dads over 30." Also, projects may not appear as "open" because they're already fully booked. Act fast when you get an email informing you of a new project!
Yes! If content rights are a required deliverable for a specific campaign, you will be made aware of this prior to campaign sign-up.
We usually have a few requirements (like a hashtag), but we want you to use your own voice and visual style. We picked you because we liked you -- we don’t want to change you. We want you to get creative! Please note, however, that we cannot accept posts that feature brand competitors or don't name the brand in the caption (unless the directions on Obviously Studio say otherwise).
Unless you have a contract with someone else that says you can’t work with us, chances are we can still work with you. If exclusivity is required for a specific campaign on our platform, they will be disclosed in the creative brief.
On each project, you work closely with an individual campaign manager - a human!
You’re working with Obviously (and we’re friendly -- check out our profiles!). We handle everything for our clients, because we’re nice like that. Think of us as the party planning committee, and you get to enjoy the party.
We usually have a few things we need you to post (like a link and hashtag), but we want to be sure you post in line with your own voice and visual style. We picked you because we liked you -- we don’t want to change you. We want you to get creative.
Obviously Studio can only bring you great collaborations if we can trust you to complete the projects that you agree to do. We understand that you may have a personal emergency, shipping problems, or dislike the product. You must tell your campaign manager immediately so they can help you resolve any issues that arise! If you ghost on a project, we will be forced to suspend you from Obviously Studio.
Payment / Rewards
Product arrives within 5 days on average. If cash is included, PayPal payments typically arrive within 45 business days. Make sure you provide a current way for us to pay you! We need one of the following payment methods from you within 90 days of completing the work: an active PayPal account, bank information, or an invoice emailed to your campaign manager. Please note - and this is really important - if you don’t give us a way to pay you within 90 days, we will not be able to process a payment for you after that point.
Most campaign rates within Obviously Studio are non-negotiable. There are exceptions from time to time! If you would like to negotiate a rate presented to you during campaign sign-up, please reach out directly to your campaign manager.
Rates for campaigns on Obviously Studio will vary depending on the required deliverables. Rates are provided upfront within the creative brief prior to campaign sign-up. Please only sign up for a campaign if you are comfortable with the rate presented.
Corgi Loyalty Program
Corgi Rewards is a loyalty program for our influencers. This is one way we like to say "thank you" for being an amazing collaborator. You can find your personal Corgi dashboard here!
Participate in more campaigns! You can earn a maximum of one Corgi per campaign. You’ll only earn a Corgi if you complete a project on time, follow the creative brief, and successfully upload your stats.
You only earn one Corgi Reward point if you’ve done all of the following: 1) completed a project according to the creative brief (correct hashtags, high level of quality) 2) adhered to all deadlines 3) uploaded your stats to Studio If your posts have been submitted and approved, then make sure you've uploaded your stats to Studio. Once you've done that, you should be eligible for a Corgi!
Once you’ve earned 10 Corgi Reward points, we’ll send you a cash bonus of $100 via PayPal. The $100 bonus is disbursed only once you’ve earned 10 Corgis. You don’t need to do anything to receive your reward, we’ll automatically send it to the PayPal email address in your profile at the end of the month after you hit 10 Corgis. Please note: the Corgi Rewards loyalty program is subject to change, anytime and without notice, at Obviously’s discretion. Individual Corgi Reward points have no value and are not redeemable for cash.
