Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?
Membership is free to accepted applicants and there is never a fee to join a campaign.
How is this free? How does ApexDrop make money?
Brands that partner with ApexDrop pay a nominal fee for our service. We do not collect commissions or profit directly from our member’s content, but we do charge brands for the time it takes to setup and manage networking opportunities.
Brands across the globe are interested in working with quality content creators, but finding them and working with them in an efficient and authentic way can be difficult. ApexDrop provides an affordable service for brands to connect and work with quality content creators.
Is there any sort of contract?
You must agree to our terms to become a member, but it’s very simple and straightforward with no hidden conditions. Here is a link to our terms and conditions page if you would like to look it over: http://apexdrop.com/terms/
Is ApexDrop a talent agency? Can I work with other agencies?
Even though it’s similar, ApexDrop is not a talent agency. Members are encouraged to join other agencies and we do not charge a commission for finding you work. There is no “exclusivity agreement”. There is no fee to be a member.
What brands have your influencers worked with?
Our influencers have worked with many emerging and popular brands like Fossil, Gigi New York, and New York and Co. Most trade collaborations are for quality products in the $100-300 range on average. We do not disclose all of the brands we work with as many prefer not to be associated with “discounts” and we maintain privacy agreements.
Am I required to take pictures with the products?
Part of our program is to stay as authentic as possible. Brands may have certain expectations of what you may do with their products, and we lay out these expectations in our campaign invitation notifications. You are never required to join any campaign that isn’t a fit for your personal brand. By following suggestions in our campaigns, we hope to help you build relationships with the brands you love.
How long is the membership?
Membership is good for two years from the time you are accepted into the program. You can asked to be removed with a 30 day prior notice to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is your contract non-exclusive? Am I able to work with other affiliates?
We don’t have an exclusivity agreement. You are welcome to join other agencies as well.
What is the reasoning behind your application questions?
How often do campaign invitations get emailed?
It depends on the brands interested and your level of reach. We generally only send a few a month to keep the quality high. Our goal is to never bug you with offers that you won’t like.
What exactly is a "trade collaboration"?
An ApexDrop trade collaboration happens when a brand agrees to send our members products or services for review, in the hopes that the content creators involved will share their positive opinion of the brand with their network. Content creators in our network are notified of these agreements by email/text and can choose to join the ones they like and delete the rest.
Smart content creators realize a trade collaboration is not just about getting quality gifts and free stuff. Trade collaborations are like “digital handshakes” that can lead to the long-term benefits of connecting with brands that appreciate your talent!
