proven authority with their target markets. By filling out your profile
completely, Marketers can see who theyâ€™re able to reach by working with you,
using filters such as:
Social Media channel
DA (domain authority) score
What is my portfolio?
Your portfolio is your chance to shine. Use it to highlight your accomplishments,
your blog posts, videos, presentations, etc. If one of your Tweets has been
widely retweeted, or if you wrote a blog post that generated a lot of
discussion, this is the perfect place to showcase just how broad your reach
is. Marketers are eager to partner with
influencers who can reach the masses with their content; your portfolio is the
perfect way to show what you can do.
What is a Klout Score?
The Klout Score is a number that measures your influence on
a scale of 1-100. The higher your score,
the more influential you are in the social media space. The score is based on many factors or
signals, such as how often your status updates are liked, shared ,or retweeted,
the number of unique individuals who interact with your posts, and even how
selective those people are about interacting with posts in general. Your Klout
score reflects your influence over the last 90 days.
What is a DA or Domain Authority Score?
Domain Authority is a score that measureâ€™s a websiteâ€™s
influence on a scale of 1-100. A higher
score indicates a stronger site with greater authority. The score is based on
many factors, including the age of the site, its size, and its popularity
(based on the number of links pointing to the site). Sites with high Domain Authority tend to
reach larger audiences and fare better in search engine results, making them a
valuable resource for marketers.
What is sponsored content?
Sponsored content is a specialized form of marketing in
which marketers pay influencers to post content associated with their brands.
It is important to note that sponsored content is not created by the brands
themselves, but by the influencers who choose to work with them. Sponsored
content should be created to benefit the reader.
It is important that any sponsored content is described as
such. The FTC has set forth guidelines
dictating how influencers should denote that particular content is sponsored,
via disclosures tailored to the platform youâ€™re working in. Blogs may have disclosure notices on the
footers of their site, while Facebook posts may include text that thanks the
brand for their sponsorship (while asserting that the sponsorship has not
influenced the opinions expressed).
For more information on disclosure, Social media explore has an in-depth article.
What makes a great post?
If youâ€™re an influencer, chances are you already
have the answer at your fingertips. Which posts and updates have enjoyed the most
likes, shares and retweets? What does your particular audience seem to respond
to most? While there are no hard and fast rules for great content, some common
traits include content that is well-written, engaging, and that invites

How do I settle a dispute between myself and a Marketer?
While the Grow Influence platform is designed to minimize
the chance of disputes, on rare occasions Dispute Resolution may be
needed. Weâ€™ve create a thorough Dispute
Resolution process designed to protect both Marketers and Influencers in the
event of a dispute. We encourage all users to work together to resolve disputes between themselves, but if a dispute
arises that needs assistance weâ€™ll be happy to help.
Starting a Dispute Resolution Case
Attempt to resolve the dispute: We encourage
clear communication between parties in order to minimize any confusion. If you
are dissatisfied with the outcome of a project, it is often useful to
communicate your concerns clearly with the other member. Include any supporting
information such as emails and messages that might clarify any
confusion. Make note of the
disagreement as well as any steps that have been taken to resolve the issue
If the dispute cannot be resolved between
members, please fill out our dispute resolution form. Clearly state the source of the dispute, as
well as any steps that have been taken to resolve it. When one member submits a
Dispute Resolution case, the other member will be automatically notified and
will be given the opportunity to present their side of the issue.
Grow Influence will review all information
presented and take the appropriate actions to resolve it. This may involve a
clarification of relevant policies, a phone call between parties with a Grow
Influence specialist acting as mediator, or a recommendation for outside
If arbitration is required, the case will be
referred to an independent third party who will review all information
presented, at a cost to be shared by both members in the dispute. This option is typically far less expensive and
time-consuming than bringing the matter as a court case, however the final
judgment is binding and enforceable by law.
Grow Influence will abide by the outcome of any arbitration review.
