Are you one of the creative folks we've been searching for?
We'd be a great match - because:
- WE like to make kits and resources for creative folks;
- YOU like to make stuff - and share that stuff on social media
So, why not team up?
Inspiration Partners bring our designs to life - you would be introducing our customers to new techniques, getting the most mileage out of their creative kits, and using our products in new and innovative ways. We look for folks who think outside the box - and can take our kits and creative assets, and make them their own.
Okay, so how does this work?
Once you've submitted samples of your work, we'll let you know if we think you'd be a good match to join the team. From there, you'll receive materials OF YOUR CHOOSING each month from which you will create your project. Simply create your masterpiece, and share it with us on our Inspiration Partners page and the other social media channels any time the week of the 20th of each month.
You are welcome to sell the projects you create from our materials - we only ask that you give proper design credit in your sales listings.
What types of crafters are we looking for?
- Colorists that love digital stamps
- Mixed Media artists & Papercrafters (think BEYOND tags)
- Magnet, jewelry, and coaster artisans
- Card Makers
- Journal & Mini Album Makers
- Folks that can create the unexpected!
So, What Do We Look For?First and foremost, we're on the lookout for folks who love design as much as we do.
- You should be comfortable with using digital and printable kits, as well as how to combine them with additional embellishments and supplies to create stunning projects. You should be comfortable with PDF files, how to download them, and how to print them out.
You should already have an existing platform (meaning, you should have an established following on (3) of the following networks - Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, and Instagram). You'll be posting your finished projects to these platforms, (and any groups that you belong to that allow sharing of projects), and should already have a presence there with a loyal following. A blog is not required, but if you have one and wish to promote us there, we'd certainly appreciate it!
Regular posts to your social media channels, IN ADDITION TO your (1) project per month. These can be sharing other DT members' projects, sharing details of our special promotions, swaps and contests, etc. If you have any questions as to what type of posts are acceptable, message Traci for help.
Promotional graphics will be provided to you if you want them for use on a blog or on your social networks. Of course, we will always provide you with product images for any kits you are working with.
Speaking of images, having great photos is also important. Whether you are taking still photos of individual journal page layouts, or videoing an introduction of a project, the quality of your images is important. Your images should be clear, with proper lighting. We encourage you to watermark your photos, and we'll provide you a personalized watermark to use in your product postings.
- The ability to convey clear, step-by-step tutorials, share techniques and tips to help our customers recreate your awesome projects for themselves is ESSENTIAL.
What Sort of Time Commitment is Involved?You'll receive ONE multi-functional creative kit each month. We may also, at our discretion, provide you with additional materials such as add-on items, clipart, etc. One may not seem like a lot, but we're all about the quality, not the quantity. And, we understand that LIFE HAPPENS. We don't want to overwhelm you - and most of all, we want you to HAVE FUN!
Let me also be perfectly clear - there ARE deadlines, and it is very important that our IP Team meet those deadlines. Release week for projects is the same time every month, in order to help you prepare. We're also here, both in our private FB group and via email, to brainstorm ideas and help answer any questions you may have.
You may not be working with the same kit that other Partners are using, and that is by design. We have a private Partners chat area where you'll be able to brainstorm and collaborate with other Partners, as well as gain answers to any questions you may have. Need help finding a certain supply? Just ask - we're happy to help.
If you wish to take on more than one project per month, that is entirely up to you! As long as you are creating quality projects, we have no issue with shooting additional materials your way.
What are the "Rules?"
We have very few, but the ones we have we do take very seriously.
Your project posts should contain the name and of the product used, and a link to our Facebook page. Your project description should also include any specialty supplies used that your social media contacts may also want to use in recreating your project at home. You will be required to post your projects to YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram. If you are not willing to do that, please do not apply.
You may not combine our kits with any other designers' kits in a single project. Meaning, you can use paper or embellishments purchased from Hobby Lobby or Joann's, but you cannot include elements that you've purchased or received from another digital designer in any Ephemoirê Project.
- We DO NOT condone spam, and any Inspiration Partner found to be spamming social networks, email, or groups will be immediately banned from the program.
- You may only promote Ephemoirê's products on FAMILY FRIENDLY VENUES.
Term of commitment is 3 months. We will review Partner progress each quarter, and touch base with you to see how things are going. If you are unable to commit to 3 months, please do not apply.
- If at any point during your first 30 days either party does not feel that this is going to be a good fit, the agreement can be terminated. No hoops to jump through, and no hard feelings.
