In case you're wondering...

How often do gigs get posted, and how many applicants are there?

We are growing quickly so the numbers are constantly changing. We've had as many as 30 gigs per month with an average of 53 applicants per gig.

How "big" do I have to be on social media to become a Darby Star?

We believe anyone can make a great video!  That's why (unlike an influencer program) we don't have requirements around the number of social media followers you have.

So, if the size of my following doesn't matter, what DO you look for?

We love to see examples of any video creation experience you may have.  This could be an Instagram story, a short YouTube video, or something on your personal blog.


TIP: We begin our search with creators already on the Darby app.  If you have videos elsewhere, be sure to download the app and upload those videos to Darby.

Am I responsible for marketing and sharing my video?

Sharing your Darby videos is a great way to gain exposure as an influencer, so we encourage it.  In most cases, though, Darby handles the distribution so you can focus on making great videos.  We share our Darby Stars' videos with thousands of viewers on the Darby app and website.


How much and when do I get paid?  

We pay a competitive flat rate per video. The money is sent to you in full once the final video has been delivered and the brand has approved it. Sign up for more details!
