There are many factors that can impact influencer compensation. For instance, one thing to consider is if they have a lawyer or manager to negotiate on their behalf. This is important to know because though it might make negotiations a bit more complex, it also makes things smoother, since the representation is experienced in the subject matter. The good news is that you can use the Julius ‘Has Representation’ filter to find influencers that do (or do not) have someone working on their behalf. See this Help Center article to find out where and how to use the filter.
