If you have worked with influencers in the past you are able to import all their information using a CSV. All the properties on the CSV will be carried over into Grin. Properties are the labels that are used within the CSV such as first name, last name, handles, etc.. The properties set within our platform include first name, last name, email, gender, language, phone number, company, street address, city, state, zip, country, Instagram URL, YouTube URL, Twitter URL, Facebook URL, Pinterest URL, Twitch URL, and website URL. Other properties can also be created to track other influencer information that is required from your end. The ability to import your influencers allows you to keep all the information obtained from influencers you have worked with before organized in one system.
