An Influencer or KOL (Key Opinion Leader) is someone with over 5,000+ genuine followers on a social media platform such as Instagram, Facebook, Weibo, WeChat, Little Red Book.
Orient is open to working with all brands, and those that represent them. This may include PR, Marketing, Media, Advertising, or Creative agencies.
Yes. In Australia, US, UK, Europe and many other parts of the world, influencers are required to disclose a sponsored post. The easiest way to do so is to include #ad or #sponsored. For further guidance, see our T&C’s.
The influencer owns the content. However, a brand can share the influencer’s post within the platform it appears in organically. If the brand would like to use it for advertising, then the brand should request a content licence.
Influencers create and submit a post with a price attached to a campaign brief. If the brand approves it, the influencer can publish it directly to their social media and be rewarded with payment. If the brand recommends changes to the content or price, they can suggest changes to the influencer. If the campaign has ended, the budget has been spent or influencer is not right for the campaign. Please read more on the approval process under “Here’s how Orient Influencer Marketing works for Brands & Agencies” via our https://orienthq.com/brands/ page.
After 60 days an influencer may remove the post. Although most leave the post on their feed.

It is unfortunate, but purchasing a product without getting paid to recommend it is no different than any other purchases made by you outside of Orient.
Often brands likes to see a number of submissions before they accept any. You may also want to offer a lower rate as higher rates discourages brands to approve your post.
You will get paid within the next 48 hours once your approved submission has been posted directly to your social media account.
Each Facebook page will be linked to one Instagram business account. This means that you cannot connect more than one account of the same social platform.
You should post within 48 hours, or a certain day directed by the brand.
Most of the brands listed on Orient won’t send you the product, this is because brands are looking for genuine advocates who are willing to purchase the product and recommend it to their audience. However, there are still a number of boutique or premium brands that send out their products to influencers & KOLs.

There is a set rate for how much you can earn by selling your content rights.
