You may have noticed a few different things on the blog lately. You may have noticed a post start with “RocketFuel Sponsored Post” like this one on Tim Tams or saw a Tweet with the hashtag #sponsored or a Facebook status saying “Sponsored”. Or you may even have noticed that lovely little banner over there -> with the vintage petrol bowser stating that I am a “Rocketfuel Influencer”. So, what exactly is Rocketfuel?
Rocketfuel is run by Rocketman Media and it is a bit of a different way for bloggers and brands to interact, focusing on social media avenues. Rocketfuel works as a middleman between the bloggers and brands; they organise a campaign with the brands and then choose the bloggers (influencers) that suit the campaign the best. The influencers have the choice to say no or to choose which or all avenues (Facebook, Twitter, or blog post) to use. The influencers are paid for each avenue as well as any clicks they receive. Because you can tailor it as much as you need to and all posts are fully disclosed as sponsored it doesn’t seem like to spam and can also be easy and quick to do.
Still not clear? Check out this super cool diagram from Rocketman Media:
Is it just me or is the design of the Rocketfuel stuff amazing? I love the vintage feel.
I’ve been an influencer for a little while now and have found Rocketman Media really great to work with – they are very approachable, answer any questions quickly and easily and follow through. I’ve knocked back a few campaigns as I didn’t feel they were a good fit for my blog but that was no problem at all.
