Does it cost money to become a Zfluencer, and do you require a minimum follower count?
It costs nothing to be a Zfluencer, and there is no minimum follower count, although the vast majority of our Zfluencers have between 2,000 and 25,000 Instagram followers and up to 750,000 TikTok followers.
How selective is the application process to become a Zfluencer? What do you look for in applicants?
We accept into our network about 30% of those who apply. To be considered, you must be at least 16 years of age, born between 1995 and 2015, and living in the United States. We look for genuinely influential members of Gen Z, people whose involvement, activities, and accomplishments make them leaders on their campuses and in their communities and an inspiration to their friends.
Do I need to be in college to be a Zfluencer?
No, quite a few of our Zfluencers are in high school, graduate school, or working full-time.
After I’ve been accepted as a Zfluencer and selected the brand(s) I love and want to work with, what is the process for letting me know if I’ve been chosen and how long will it take?
We will let you know as soon as a brand selects you to be one of its ambassadors. Then, the brand will be in touch with you directly to get you started. Each brand’s timeline for approving and contacting their Zfluencers is different, but generally speaking, it takes anywhere from a week to a month.
Will a brand ever be assigned to me?
No. What’s unique about Zfluence is that the brand-ambassador relationships we enable are authentic and begin with you, which ensures that you’ll only be working with brands that you genuinely love and brands will only be working with genuine fans of their brand.
Can I work with brands on platforms, like YouTube, in addition to Instagram and TikTok?
Absolutely. That’s something you can discuss directly with the brands you’re working with.
I know I will be rewarded for posting with products, but can I also ask the brands to pay me in cash?
No. We are a product-as-reward platform, and asking for cash compensation is in violation of the Zfluencer Agreement.
