When starting your campaign, one of the first things you'll need to do is develop your creator brief. The creator brief is used to give creators an overview of all your campaign requirements and ultimately becomes part of your contract together. An effective creator brief includes all the details necessary for them to effectively produce posts for your program and be a successful partner to your brand. It can be hard to hold creators to any requirements that aren't captured in your brief, so making sure it is comprehensive is a must. See below for an example!

Describe your campaign for creators
Every symbol has meaning. Set your intention and layer on pieces that give you guidance and help manifest what’s meant for you. #IntentSetter.
An #IntentSetter is a someone who shares in our vision to inspire, empower and connect humanity. Intention setters are real women with real stories who are open to sharing their journey of self-discovery. Creating trust within our communities is the most precious commodity.
Our goal is to create an authentic space to capture the story behind your yourself tying your journey of self-discovery to an intention that resonates closest to you. i.e., every morning I set an intention to put love out into the universe, so I wear product "xyz" to help me stay mindful of my journey.
Featured Product or Service
The product should be authentically woven into your content. We admire your creativity and defer to the content creator as they know their audience best and what content is the most successful. We do ask that there is close ups of the product so it is obvious that there was a partnership with a jewelry brand but also doesn't feel like forced marketing.
