This guide will take you through how to import a new group of influencers along with discount codes that you have created for them outside of the platform. However, you must first create a discount code group for the influencers being imported. To learn how to create a discount code group, click here.

Step 1. Begin by going into the "Contacts" tab and selecting "My Influencers.
Step 2. Next, click on the "Import" button in the upper right corner and download the sample file.
Step 3. Once the sample CSV has downloaded, add the column "Discount Codes." This column can be created anywhere on the sheet.
Step 4. Then, format your influencers into the sample sheet. Not all the information in the sheet must be filled out. Only fill out the columns important for your use and save the sheet as a CSV.
Step 5. After formatting your influencer CSV, go back into "My Influencers" and click on the "Properties" button to create a "Discount Codes" property.
Step 6. Create the property label as "Discount Codes" and make the field type "Single-line text."
Step 7. Then, go back into the "My Influencers" tab and click on the import icon.
Step 8. Select the CSV that was previously formatted to begin the import process.
Step 9. In the "Import Details" step, select if you'd like to set a tag or relationship stage on the imported influencers, and whether you'd like to add them to a campaign (THESE ARE OPTIONAL). Also, make sure to check the box labeled "Update Existing Contacts."
Step 11. In the "Map Columns" step, map out the all the columns you'd liked to track in GRIN. However, for "Discount Codes" select the discount code group associated with the campaign you'd like the influencer to be in.
Step 12. Lastly, in the "Confirm & Process" step click on the blue "Start Import" to begin importing your CSV.
Step 13. Once imported, all the influencers in your sheet will appear in your My Influencers with their assigned codes. This can been verified by going into you influencer profiles and looking at the "Discount Codes" section. Also, keep in mind that the CSV import may take time depending on the size of the CSV.
