Why did Intellifluence reach out to me?
Fraud is everywhere on the Internet today, so it’s no wonder that small influencers need to have a gut check and healthy sense of skepticism when determining if something is real. Therefore, the same must be true of those that receive outreach from Intellifluence and wonder… Why me? Let’s answer that.
Is Joe Sinkwitz a scammer?
Short version: No. Giving influencers 100% of their earnings will hopefully make that obvious.
While as a human I hope you aren’t wondering that, you’re on this post because you have legitimate questions, so let’s answer them inline or via our FAQ. I personally receive thousands of replies weekly from potential influencers wanting to learn more about what we do, how we work, are concerned about fraud, and need their minds put at ease. I’m happy to try my best at that by providing a plethora of information related to how our Intellifluence promise works for protecting payments, how we prioritize honesty in reviews, the ability for influencers to control what types of work they do, and much more. This is just a fraction of what our support team receives; they love helping influencers grow, so don’t stop asking questions!
Unfortunately, not everyone asks a question — sometimes we find out about concerns via YouTube reaction videos to our outreach that haven’t been properly researched or find claims made on Twitter that are wrong. Occasionally, we’ll try to engage with the individuals to correct them or to answer questions, but that doesn’t always work as sometimes a person’s opinion cannot be changed. The bigger we get, the more often this will happen; it’s just a function of mathematics.
Therefore, we wanted to make a short video to help those influencers wondering “why me?” to help answer that question and let them know who we are.
There’s several reasons why Intellifluence reaches out to influencers of all sizes:
- We’re trying to democratize influence and can only do that by continuing to build upon what is presently the largest warm contact influencer network.
- As brands join, they let us know what types of influencers they need based on the variables used in their campaign settings. Those settings help to determine who we believe we need to reach out to. For instance, if a gaming company joins and is looking for YouTubers, we’ll try to find more YouTubers running gaming channels since that’s a fairly efficient way of both making brands happy and giving a potential influencer relevant opportunities. This is an ongoing and evolving process.
- Long-term, we are going to have mechanisms that allow influencers a lot of control over how they work and whom they work with. The more influencers we get these toolsets in front of, the more successful the group of influencers will be as a whole.
- Everyone starts somewhere. Think about any huge influencer channel you follow — that person started with a single viewer, a single follower, a single friend. We all have the capacity to grow and become a top tier influencer through hard work and focus.
With that I’d like to turn it over to Andrew, who put together a short video to help explain what we’re doing, why Intellifluence is not a scam, and why we hope you join with our (as of today) 160,000+ influencers.
