    Yes, we highly recommend that you do not negotiate the prices with our influencer as they are following our price guideline. Should you feel that the price quoted is not something you are willing to pay, please contact your account manager.

  • Can I have a case study?

    Of course, our case studies are available upon request.

  • Where will the video/post be uploaded?

    The video/post will be uploaded to the influencer’s channel. Influencer marketing is about tapping on the influencer’s influence. However, if you would like the option to have the content created uploaded to your own social media channels as well, please inform the influencer in the brief as well, as there may be additional charges.

During Campaign Period

    As an online portal, 50% of payment are to be paid upon acceptance of an influencer via bank transfer/ paypal and the balance will be collected upon completion of the campaign.

  • Do we have to pay for production cost?

    Please contact your account manager, we will go through your proposals with you to see if there is anything we could do about the prices.

  • Can we chat with the influencer?

    Yes you may chat with the influencer. The chat function works primarily to help the influencer and you clarify in greater details what you are requesting for. If you choose to discuss pricing, influencer is required to create a new proposal to reflect the new pricing.

  • What if I don’t like the video?

    Depending on what you do not like about the video, some changes can be made by the influencer if there is an apparent fault on their end. There is only usually 2 iterations allowed. We encourage you to go through the influencer’s past videos/posts to determine if he/she is a right fit for you before the commencement of your campaign.

  • Why are they expensive?

    SushiVid is only 1 years old. Before our existence, influencers have practiced a “anyhow-anyhow” pricing model. Nobody actually knows how to price themselves. We are here to set a guideline for our influencers and if the influencers follow our guideline, the price should be right. If you have questions on this, please reach out to your account manager.
