Instagram’s creator marketplace rolling out in India, will help you score partnerships with brands | Technology News


If you’re a brand looking to partner with influencers, or a creator seeking brand deals, Instagram’s making it way easier to match with the perfect counterpart. The platform’s creator marketplace, which launched in the US last year, is expanding to several other countries – including India – over the next few weeks.

The marketplace’s international rollout spans eight new countries – Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Japan, India, Brazil, and a path for Chinese exporters to connect with creators outside China. For brands and influencers in these markets, landing lucrative sponsorship deals is about to get a whole lot smoother.

Instagram says that driving this feature are automated recommendations that use machine learning to analyse platform data and suggest creators that are the ideal fit for any given brand campaign. The days of scouring the app aimlessly hoping to stumble upon the right influencer may officially be over.

But the marketplace offers way more than just personalised recommendations. It’s an all-in-one platform for brands and creators to link up from start to finish. Creators can build portfolios spotlighting their talents, while brands can filter searches by niche interests, audience demographics, and more.

Brands can join the creator marketplace through the Meta Business Suite. Meanwhile, creators can join right through the Instagram’s professional dashboard. To sell themselves better and up their chances of scoring a brand collaboration, creators can also create a portfolio to highlight what makes them unique.

Once a potential pair connects through the integrated messaging system, they can hash out all the details – payment, deliverables, etc. Creators can view these details right from the Instagram app. And when a deal is sealed, they’re able to directly publish sponsored “partnership ads” through the marketplace and Meta’s advertising tools.

For influencers, this means more exposure to brands actively seeking their skills. For companies, it removes a major friction point in the influencer marketing process.
