Campaign Brief Creation
To ensure each campaign’s success, the Client has to publish a precise and comprehensive brief on Influence4Brands, in order to provide all the elements needed for influencers to meet the needs and requirements. Campaign payments to influencers will be based on a pro-rata calculation according to the respect of the brief, as estimated and defined by the Client. In the event of any dispute by influencers on the pro-rata calculation, Influence4Brands reserves the right to settle and indicate a new pro-rata calculation, which will automatically be considered as approved by both parties.
With the exception of click campaigns, after Clients publish their brief on Influence4Brands, they will choose influencers with whom they wish to collaborate and approve their profile. For click campaigns, any influencer can participate, and Clients will be able to ban influencers of their campaign if they consider them not qualitative enough.
Campaign Brief Submission
Clients define the brief. The Influence4Brands team reviews it before it gets published on the platform. Influence4Brands reserves the right to reject any brief that will be judged as not compliant to our standards, or not relevant to influencers.

If a campaign is not completed on time, the Client is free to compensate the influencer or not. If an influencer deletes their sponsored post before the end of the 30-day delay, the Client has the right to rescind their compensation or a part of it.
