When working with The Cirqle, the campaign brief is probably most important piece of a campaign. It summarizes all the characteristics of a creator a brand is seeking and houses all of the necessary information that you as a creator need to know before applying to a campaign. After a campaign begins, you can refer back to the Brief at any time to ensure you are following the brand's guidelines.
Sections in our campaign briefs:
Each brief is divided into different sections: Campaign Details, Style Guide, the Goal of the Campaign, Post Overview, what you can expect from The Cirqle and Terms and Conditions of the campaign.
The Campaign Details section is the most important of the brief because it allows you to understand if you are a good fit with the brand and the campaign. And most important, if you are interested in becoming part of the campaign.
On the Cover page, it will be stated if you are eligible or not for the campaign. If you are eligible, at the bottom of the page you will see the payments information, the posting dates and the application deadline. Whereas, if you are not eligible then you will see the following sentence in read: “Unfortunately, you are not eligible for this campaign. For more details, please refer to the creator requirements in the section below.”
The below are the subsections of the campaign details:
A topline description of the campaign;
A more detailed description of the campaign;
“The ideal creator”, this gives you an idea about which creators the brand is looking for.
The “Creator requirements” are all the requirements that you as a creator must have in order to be eligible for the campaign. How can you know if you have all the needed requirements? If next to the requirements there is a green check mark, this implies that you fulfill all the requirements. If you see a red “X”, it means that you are not eligible for the campaign and therefore you are not able to apply.
The “preferred audience of the creator” is not a requirement but a preference. This information (gender, location, age, and income) is good to know when applying in order to know what exactly the brand is looking for and to have more chances to be selected for the campaign. Not sure what your audience is? You can view this on your profile at any time!
The “Goal for the Campaign” is important for you as a creator to know, because it should help you create the best possible content to achieve it.
