How to Import My Existing Influencers

If you have an existing list of influencers, you have the ability to import those contacts within GRIN. We also provide you with a sample CSV with the correct formatting for influencer imports. The sample CSV can also be modified to include any additional data you would like to import.

Step 4 Format your CSV using the sample file that was downloaded.

Step 5 Fill out the influencers' First and Last Name, Email, and at least one of the influencer's social network URLs

 

Add additional Columns for Import

Note

New custom properties will need to be created for every new column header you create. The most important columns to have filled out are First Name, Last Name, Email, and at least one social network URL. If you have other variables you want to track but is not a column header, then create the column and add the data.

Step 1 Click Contacts and select My Influencers.

Step 2 Click Manage in the right-hand corner and select Custom Properties

Step 4 In 'Step 1. Property Details', name your Property and Influencer Property Label, include a description and click the Next button. 

Note

The "Label" is the name you will see when managing contacts and contact properties while the "Influencer Label" is the name your influencers will see when required to provide information for this field. Custom properties are optional to provide to your influencers so if a property is internal, then you can exclude it when requesting influencer proposal details.
