Inspire Creatives APPlication
We are so excited you are interested in becoming an Inspire Creative. Inspire Creatives are at the core of the Inspire Shop in giving others ideas and inspiration to draw us closer to the Lord throughout the month.
Keys to joining Inspire Creatives Crew:
Before you apply, please take some time to think and pray to ensure: (1) this commitment will be blessing you and others in the process (2) you have the time and capacity to meet the expectations (3) it will challenge and grow you in your faith.
Original Content – Each of your blog posts / social media posts / creative posts should be new material that has not been published on another site and are exclusive to The Inspire Shop. They can be shared and are encouraged to share on your own pages, linking back the original post but it should not be re-posted on your site or elsewhere.
Appropriate Content – Our desire is for everything to point to Jesus. Anything that does not align with that will not be posted. All photos and content needs to be free from any copyright issues. If you are unsure whether or not you have permission, you probably should not post it but please do not hesitate to ask if you have questions.
Friendship, Not Advertising – We want to get to know you and desire to share your heart and talent with others. Please feel free to include post links to previous blog posts you have written on your own blog or website that tie into the topic but no affiliate links or self reviews.
Inspire and Grow – We want you to be inspired and encouraged in your giftings as you inspire and encourage others, as well as stretch and grow you in the process. Growth only comes through perseverance and doing things out of your comfort zone. Try new techniques. Use new filters or backgrounds. Take leaps of faith. Laugh at yourself in the growth process and let us know how we can help.
Create Community - When you post, we would love to see you interact with others who respond and can relate to it. Please comment and pay attention to it for the first week or two after your content goes live. We pray your encouragement builds more than words or cute things but authentic friendships, too.
