Link your brand's handle to grant creators permission to tag and disclose your collaboration through the Paid Partnership header in their Instagram posts!
Warning: Creators and publishers must disclose the commercial nature of their content. Otherwise, their content is at risk of being taken down for being non-compliant with Meta's Branded Content Policies.
Branded Content is any Instagram image, video, or reel influenced by a business partner for an exchange of value – such as monetary payment or free gifts.
Partnership Ads, previously called Branded Content Ads, are created from the collaboration between a brand and creator and run under the creator's handle with the Sponsored label in the post.
Any creator is eligible to participate and tag you in sponsored content! The only requirement is they have a Professional (Business or Creator) Instagram account.
