Profile

Easy :) You are on our website already so just go to the top of the page and click 'For Bookstagrammers'. On this page you'll find a button that says 'Sign me up'. From there you will go to a form that you have to fill in. Once you submit your form you are part of the Bookstagrammers.com community.

During talks with several Booktubers and Bookstagrammers we found out that expressing sexual orientation is important to many in the community. Therefore we want to give the option to add this to your profile. You don't have to. If you don't check the box nothing about your sexual orientation appears in your profile. You can also use your bio to tell more about yourself.

If you register at Bookstagrammers.com you need to complete your profile. This means you fill in the data fields with an * at minimum and your social media channels. You then receive a mediator agreement to read and sign if you agree. Only then you will be marked as verified and have access to the campaigns on the platform.

Joining Campaigns

Log in to the platform. Click campaigns in your menu. If you see a campaign that interests you, click the headline to read the details of the campaign. Then you can click 'I'm interested' to register for the campaign. From that moment on the brand manager can contact you through chat. Once the brand manager has made their final decision you will be notified. Check 'My campaigns'  to see the status. The different statuses are registered, selected or rejected. 

Until the brand manager has made their final selection you can revoke your interest. Do so by clicking 'not interested' in the briefing of the campaign. If you made it to the final selection we expect you to participate in the campaign. Not participating in a campaign you were selected for can lead to a removal from the platform. 

Featured Bookstagrammers

A featured Bookstagrammer gets noticed by brands visiting the website immediately. They are not only visible on the homepage but also in the brands-section. Furthermore they are promoted on the socials. In return the featured Bookstagrammers promote Bookstagrammers.com on their socials so the bookcommunity knows about our existence. The more the merrier!

Every two months we ask 9 of you if you want to be featured. For the 10th spot we usually organise a competition. This competition is always promoted through our newsletter and social media channels.

Yes! You can be featured in our Instagram-stories. If you are part of a campaign and mention @bookstagrammerscom, we will on occasion show your post in our stories.

Payment & Taxes

The type of reward you receive from the brand totally depends on the brand manager. They can give you a free product or service, they can send you a gift card or they can give a financial reward.

When the campaign you were selected for has ended we will send the bill to the brand, based on how many bookinfluencers have participated in a campaign. Once that bill is paid, we will pay you your share. If you are registrated at your local Chamber of Commerce we expect you to send us an invoice at finance@bookstagrammers.com.

No, you will be paid the full amount that you signed up for. Transferring money abroad (we are in the Netherlands) is expensive though. We looked into the cheapest options for you as the receiver of money and us as the sender of money. Bookstagrammers.com has chosen to work with Transferwise. This is by far the cheapest way to get the money in your bankaccount. They do take a small fee, but this fee is much better than if we would use Paypal or a regular bank transfer. Bookstagrammers.com will pay 50 to 100% of the fee. This means that the actual amount that will show up in your bank account can be a little less than the reward you signed up for.

Because you don't own a business, you can't send us an invoice. Instead we will transfer you the money and send you a proof of payment.

You're solely responsible for paying your income and sales taxes. Contact your national tax authorities to inform yourself.

The invoice needs to be directed to:
Bookstagrammers.com
Dijkerhoekseweg 13-15
7451 LV Holten
The Netherlands
In your invoice you should state the brand you worked for and the name of the campaign you worked on. Also we need your personal data, your international bank account information and your VAT number. Please make sure this information is in your profile. You can only send us an invoice if you're registered at your national Chamber of Commerce. If you're not we will send you a proof of payment.

Only if you are registered at your national Chamber of Commerce you can send us an invoice. Send your PDF-file to finance@bookstagrammers.com. If you're not registered we will send you a proof of payment.

If you are not from the Netherlands you don't charge us VAT. Fill in our VAT-ID on your invoice: NL001431503B86.
If you are a Dutch bookinfluencer, registered at the Kamer van Koophandel and obliged to charge BTW, your invoice should have BTW on it since we are situated in The Netherlands as well. Invoices may only be sent by people that are registered at their national Chamber of Commerce. If you're not we will send you a proof of payment.

Please get in touch with the brand manager of your campaign by using the chat. Brands are responsible for giving you the rewards.

Brands that start a marketing campaign through Bookstagrammers.com pay us a fee. If you want to know more about this just check out the Brand FAQ in the footer.

Bonus Program

We appreciate all efforts for bringing leads to Bookstagrammers.com. For every lead that turns into a customer we will pay the person(s) that brought the lead to Bookstagrammers.com. Only the first 3 people bringing in that specific lead will get paid.

Any brand can start a campaign on Bookstagrammers.com. Not just from the world of books. It's up to the people in the community if they want to collaborate with that particular brand.

Cool! Tell us about it by filling the form. Be specific about the brand name, the person you talked to, the product or service they want to promote and the offer they made. We will get back to you once the brand is starting a campaign on Bookstagrammers.com. If you are among others that informed us about the same lead, we will let you know if you're applicable for the bonus.

This depends on the contract. You will receive 10% of the fee for a campaign with a maximum of € 120. You might have to share with a maximum of 2 other people that sent the same lead.
For example:
A brand signs up for a self-service campaign worth € 1.150. You will receive € 115 if you are the first and only one that brought the lead to Bookstagrammers.com. If within 24 hours other people bring in the same lead, you will share equally with a maximum of 3 people. In that case you would earn € 38,33 each. If others brought in the lead before you and you do not belong to the 1st 3 people that brought in the lead then unfortunately you don't receive a bonus.

In the future we'll probably have vacancies for freelance accountmanagers. If you're interested then send us an e-mail at sales@bookstagrammers.com. Include the approach you would pursue.

Legal

We are a mediator between you and the brands you will work with. By signing the contract you agree to the terms of our collaboration. If you don't sign the contract then it's impossible for us to work together unfortunately.

Yes, this is not an exclusive agreement.
