FAQs for Zfluencers
Does it cost money to become a Zfluencer, and do I need to have a certain follower count?
Being a Zfluencer is completely free, and we do not require a minimum follower count, although the majority of our Zfluencers have between 2,000 and 25,000 Instagram followers and up to 1,000,000 TikTok followers.
How selective is the application process to become a Zfluencer? What do you look for in applicants?
We are the most selective ambassador network in the country (our acceptance rate is approximately 30%). Because we are all about authenticity, we do not accept “professional influencers” or “professional content creators” who take cash payments in exchange for promoting brands they may or may not like and people who purchase followers or likes. We look for members of Gen Z who have earned real and meaningful influence among their peers by being leaders on their campuses and in their communities.
Do I need to be in college to be a Zfluencer?
No. While most (80%) of our Zfluencers are in college, 13% are in high school and 7% are graduate students or working full time.
After I’ve been accepted as a Zfluencer, set up my Zfluencer Profile, and requested to work with the brand(s) I love, what is the process for finding out if I’ve been chosen by a brand?
Once you have requested to work with a brand, the brand will have the opportunity to review your Zfluencer Profile and social media accounts. To increase your chances for being selected, please make your social media profiles public. If the brand selects you to become one of their ambassadors, they will reach out to you directly by email, so check your email regularly. Each brand’s timeline for reviewing, approving, and contacting their Zfluencers is different, but generally speaking, it can take anywhere from a week to a month to hear from a brand.
Will a random brand ever be assigned to me?
Never. What’s unique and powerful about Zfluence is that the relationships we enable begin with our Zfluencers and their genuine enthusiasm for the brands they’ve requested to work with, i.e., brands can only choose their ambassadors from the cohort of Zfluencers who have requested to work with them. This ensures that you will only be working with the brands that you love and brands will only be working with Zfluencers who genuinely love them.
I know I will be rewarded for my work with products, but can I also ask the brands to pay me in cash?
No. To maintain our focus on authentic brand advocacy, per our Zfluencer Agreement, we do not permit Zfluencers to be paid in cash.
