The Creator Search was added as a new tool for our Virtual Newsroom and Content marketing offering. Not all Creators in the network are social influencers with social platform connections so Creator Search was developed to help Marketers find professional journalists, photographers, and other content creators. You can still find creators with social connections, but your search will not be limited to specific social platforms. At this time, not all Marketers have the ability to create Content Only opportunities as the feature is still being developed. *Please note that the search tools are only available for Plus and Premium plan members.
1. From the Marketer Dashboard navigate to the Creator Search tab on the left hand sidebar.
2. Once on the Creator Search page, you will be able to search for Creators based on a keyword or by selecting various criteria. You will see that some featured Content Creators will initially populate before you search to showcase the types of creators available. These Creators have been Vetted based on the work examples they have provided.
3. You can refine the search results using filters by clicking the filters button next to Search. This search tool is extremely advanced and will help you to locate specific Creators depending on what you are looking for. Always include a keyword first then start building out your filters. Keep an eye on the sentence at the bottom of the search page to make sure your search is populating the results you want. Make sure to click Apply Filters before clicking Search.
The All button at the top will pull results matching all of the filters you select below it. The Any button will search for results that match either group you create.
4. Once you select your search criteria, matching creators will populate. You can view a Creator's profile by clicking on View.
5. Clicking the View button will bring you to the Creator's Portfolio page. You can also view their Social connections and make an offer to one of those connections by clicking on the Social tab.
If you have a live Content opportunity, you can send the Creator a Direct Offer from this page.
