What is the Creator Network?

Recommend to your subscribers creators worth checking out, and get recommended in turn, to build your email audiences together.

Updated over a week ago

Partner with other creators to grow each other's email lists!

The Creator Network is our feature for helping you discover other creators and get discovered in turn.

You can use it to recommend creators your audience may be interested in. Then, when people subscribe to your email list, they'll see your recommended creators—and can decide to join their email lists, too.

Likewise, other creators can also discover and recommend you to their subscribers.

The result? Everyone grows their email lists, and everyone wins. 🚀

What does this look like from the subscriber's perspective?

How many creators can you recommend at once?

You can recommend up to 100 creators simultaneously. If you already have 100 active Recommendations, you will need to remove some of them before recommending someone new.

To ensure a positive user experience for subscribers, however, we will display a maximum of five Recommendations on your Forms or Landing Pages. These Recommendations can be creators randomly chosen from all your recommended creators, or specific creators of your choice.

Considering the number of new subscribers you acquire each day is crucial to maintain an effective recommendation strategy for creators.

For instance, if you gain 100 new subscribers daily and your recommendation conversion rate is 20%, it means you will be sending 20 subscribers to the creators on your Recommendations list.

If you recommend 10 creators, each one will receive an average of two subscribers per day

However, if you recommend only two creators, each one will receive an average of 10 subscribers per day, which may have a greater impact.

Can you get paid for recommending creators?

Yes, you can! 💰

How can you track the subscribers you've received via Recommendations?

Your Creator Network settings' Subscribers page provides a report on the subscribers you've gotten via Recommendations.

We'll also associate all subscribers you've received via Recommendations with a Form called "Creator Network."

Like any other ConvertKit Form or Landing Page, you can then use the "Creator Network" Form to add these subscribers to a Segment, send them a Broadcast, or trigger a Visual Automation.

What happens if you already have SparkLoop's Upscribe feature set up for your newsletter?

Our Recommendations screen will replace your Upscribe widget and you won't be able to recommend other creators via Upscribe while you are part of the Creator Network.

So, before joining the Creator Network, make sure to hide Upscribe on the Forms on which you are planning to display your Creator Network Recommendations.

If you have joined SparkLoop's Partner Program for paying creators who refer new subscribers to you, you can still continue to be part of the program. ConvertKit creators can then set up a Paid Recommendation for your newsletter and get paid when they send subscribers your way.
