General FAQs

Trendster is an online platform that allows influencers to earn money by promoting brand campaigns on Instagram. Influencers either apply to campaigns posted by brands working with trendster, or are sought out by the brands themselves. Both brands and influencers have powerful analytical tools to help them understand and manage their Instagram audience. As privacy is one of our strongest pillars, personal information including name, contact information, and photos are invisible to brands until the influencer’s profile is unlocked. Brands are also able to see detailed analytics of unlocked profiles. While influencers are engaged in campaigns, both the brand and the influencer get detailed analytical reports on the progress of the campaign.
