With recent brand safety issues within YouTube, advertisers now care more than ever how they’re being advertised and who they’re working with. Our Factory Verified creators, have been carefully assessed and vetted so our advertisers can have the confidence and peace of mind when selecting from our verified talent roster, that the creator is brand safe.
It’s easy! Once you’ve filled out our application form, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from our dedicated influencer team within 24/48 hours letting you know if you’re eligible to be Factory Verified. If you are, the e-mail will also contain a link allowing you to authenticate your account with our platform, IQ.
Authenticating with your social account lets us know that you’re the owner of the accounts and enables the analytics to populate in your personal IQ profile. Don’t worry – we’ll never comment, like, or post on your behalf, and we don’t store your password.
This allows us to pull the transcripts (from audio to text translations) from your YouTube videos to analyze how safe and what kind of content you regularly post. We will absolutely NOT exercise any of the ‘management permission’ features within your channel.
Multiple factors go into our evaluation including content quality, sentiment, engagement, just to name a few…
We will immediately begin reviewing your channel data, and at the end of 5 days you will receive an email from us notifying you if you’ve been Factory Verified. It’s that simple!
It’s VERY important for you to know that data from your channel will NOT be shared with other creators and will only be available to our internal team reviewing your verification process, as well as select agencies and brands that have buying power and who access our platform for research and campaign planning.
IQ serves as a beginning to end advertising solution for our clients and influencer team. So, for example- based on your YouTube channel profile within IQ, agencies or brands can easily assess your channel and incorporate you for their advertising campaigns (custom projects or creative targeting). In some cases, representatives from our influencer team will serve as the client’s proxy by reaching out to you, handling negotiations (project terms), and payment.
By becoming Factory Verified, you become more visible as a preferred creator to our clients. Which increases your chances of being discovered for an advertising need or project. Earning you the opportunity to increase your income. Please keep in mind compensation amounts vary by campaign and project.
