How to Message Creators
- Go to the creator’s instagram profile by clicking Message next to their profile in Creator & Brand Collabs.
- Then, you have 2 options:
- Message the creator directly on Instagram by clicking Message in their Instagram profile.
- If a creator has an email in their bio, email them at that address.
Note: Depending on a creator’s privacy settings, you may not see the message button on their Instagram profile. If you follow the creator, a button to message them should appear.
What to Include in Your Message
Here’s what we recommend including in your first message when you contact a creator.
Note: Depending on your campaign and your brand’s needs, you may want to change what you include in your first message.
- Let them know you found them on Later’s Creator & Brand Collabs. It’ll help them understand how they’re getting discovered.
- Keep messages short and clear. Some creators get many messages every day.
- Share the most exciting parts of your campaign to help your brand stand out.
- Tell them why you’d like to work with them—explain how they’re a good fit for your brand, or what you like about their profile.
- Be transparent about compensation and expectations. Let them know what kind of compensation they can expect (product or payment).
