6. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.

6.1 Overview. This Contract imposes special restrictions on how the Client and the Coach must handle confidential information. These obligations are explained in this section.

6.2 The Client's Confidential Information. While working for the Client, the Coach may come across, or be given, Client information that is confidential. This is information like customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, statistics about a website, and other information that is private. The Coach promises to treat this information as if it is the Coach's own confidential information. The Coach may use this information to do its job under this Contract, but not for anything else. For example, if the Client lets the Coach use a customer list to send out a newsletter, the Coach cannot use those email addresses for any other purpose. The one exception to this is if the Client gives the Coach written permission to use the information for another purpose, the Coach may use the information for that purpose, as well. When this Contract ends, the Coach must give back or destroy all confidential information, and confirm that it has done so. The Coach promises that it will not share confidential information with a third party, unless the Client gives the Coach written permission first. The Coach must continue to follow these obligations, even after the Contract ends. The Coach's responsibilities only stop if the Coach can show any of the following: (i) that the information was already public when the Coach came across it; (ii) the information became public after the Coach came across it, but not because of anything the Coach did or didn't do; (iii) the Coach already knew the information when the Coach came across it and the Coach didn't have any obligation to keep it secret; (iv) a third party provided the Coach with the information without requiring that the Coach keep it a secret; or (v) the Coach created the information on its own, without using anything belonging to the Client.

6.3 Third-Party Confidential Information. It's possible the Client and the Coach each have access to confidential information that belongs to third parties. The Client and the Coach each promise that it will not share with the other party confidential information that belongs to third parties, unless it is allowed to do so. If the Client or the Coach is allowed to share confidential information with the other party and does so, the sharing party promises to tell the other party in writing of any special restrictions regarding that information.

7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.

Neither party is liable for breach-of-contract damages that the breaching party could not reasonably have foreseen when it entered this Contract.

8. INDEMNITY.

8.1 Overview. This section transfers certain risks between the parties if a third party sues or goes after the Client or the Coach or both. For example, if the Client gets sued for something that the Coach did, then the Coach may promise to come to the Client's defense or to reimburse the Client for any losses.

8.2 Client Indemnity. In this Contract, the Coach agrees to indemnify the Client (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of: (i) the work the Coach has done under this Contract; (ii) a breach by the Coach of its obligations under this Contract; or (iii) a breach by the Coach of the promises it is making in Section 3 (Representations).

9. GENERAL.

9.1 Assignment​. This Contract applies only to the Client and the Coach. Neither the Client nor the Coach can assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Contract to a third-party (other than by will or intestate), without first receiving the other's written permission.

9.2 Arbitration. As the exclusive means of initiating adversarial proceedings to resolve any dispute arising under this Contract, a party may demand that the dispute be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its commercial arbitration rules.

9.3 Modification; Waiver. To change anything in this Contract, the Client and the Coach must agree to that change in writing and sign a document showing their contract. Neither party can waive its rights under this Contract or release the other party from its obligations under this Contract, unless the waiving party acknowledges it is doing so in writing and signs a document that says so.

9.4. Noticies.

(a) Over the course of this Contract, one party may need to send a notice to the other party. For the notice to be valid, it must be in writing and delivered in one of the following ways: personal delivery, email, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested). The notice must be delivered to the party's address listed at the end of this Contract or to another address that the party has provided in writing as an appropriate address to receive notice.

(b) The timing of when a notice is received can be very important. To avoid confusion, a valid notice is considered received as follows: (i) if delivered personally, it is considered received immediately; (ii) if delivered by email, it is considered received upon acknowledgement of receipt; (iii) if delivered by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), it is considered received upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. If a party refuses to accept notice or if notice cannot be delivered because of a change in address for which no notice was given, then it is considered received when the notice is rejected or unable to be delivered. If the notice is received after 5:00pm on a business day at the location specified in the address for that party, or on a day that is not a business day, then the notice is considered received at 9:00am on the next business day.

9.5 Severability. This section deals with what happens if a portion of the Contract is found to be unenforceable. If that's the case, the unenforceable portion will be changed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that change is not permitted by law, in which case the portion will be disregarded. If any portion of the Contract is changed or disregarded because it is unenforceable, the rest of the Contract is still enforceable.

9.6 Signatures. The Client and the Coach must sign this document using Bonsai's e-signing system. These electronic signatures count as originals for all purposes.

9.7 Governing Law. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this document shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America.

9.8 Entire Contract. This Contract represents the parties' final and complete understanding of this job and the subject matter discussed in this Contract. This Contract supersedes all other contracts (both written and oral) between the parties.

What a proposal for influencer marketing can help you achieve

Influencer marketing is among the most impactful ways to build brand awareness and boost social media engagement. However, the many moving parts involved in influencer marketing campaigns can often make building a healthy influencer-brand relationship challenging.

Enter—influencer marketing proposal. A neatly drafted proposal can make a huge difference in securing, managing, and completing a project. An influencer campaign proposal can help:

  • Nurture a healthy and confident client relationship 
  • Clearly define your client’s objectives and expectations
  • Streamline all the campaign goals alongside your deliverables
  • Outline the plan of action to create transparency and track progress 
  • List down the budgets and deadlines to keep everyone on the same page

The Fundamental Elements of an Influencer Marketing Proposal

Your brand influencer proposal template should ideally help you stand out from the crowd. Besides reflecting your personality as an influencer, the template should also highlight the results you can bring for your prospect’s influencer marketing strategy. 

So, think from the perspective of a brand or a marketing agency—what do they want to see?

Make your influencer proposal clear and engaging with visual elements, Gantt charts, workflows, and timelines. Avoid big blocks of text and make the proposal easily skimmable with bulleted lists and short paragraphs.

Here’s a list of the key elements you should look to include in your influencer collaboration proposal template.

Cover page

An impactful introduction is the best place to start your proposal. Use the cover page to introduce yourself and explain your expertise. This is your opportunity to make a great first impression—make the most of it.

Instead of writing a lengthy cover page, keep it crisp and creative to hook your prospective client's attention for the rest of your influencer proposal. 

Goals and objectives

After the introduction comes one of the most significant parts of your proposal—the campaign goals. 

Your influencer marketing proposal should detail the brief and campaign goals your prospect aspires to achieve through an influencer marketing strategy. Personalized goals as per the prospect’s objectives and target audience will also highlight the effort you’ve put in to customize the influencer marketing proposal template for your potential client. 

Here’s a helpful list of marketing goals you’ll likely need to cover in your influencer marketing proposal:

  • Enhancing brand awareness and reputation 
  • Spreading the word about the product/service 
  • Building a collection of user-generated content 
  • Increasing website traffic through online platforms 
  • Driving sales numbers through social media activities
  • Growing the brand’s social media profiles in terms of followers

Write this section to convey how well you’ve understood their strategy and campaigns—reiterating your value. These goals can be further developed in later discussion with the client.

Plan of action

Once you’ve detailed the client’s goals, you will be in a better position to outline a fail-proof plan of action. This legwork will:

  • Show your prospects how committed you are to their influencer marketing campaign 
  • Help you get started right away once the deal is closed 

Get to the specifics of exactly what you will do to amplify their business name and improve their online presence. You can include details about: 

  • Giveaways 
  • Account takeovers 
  • Social media mentions

Plus any other similar services to bring the desired results and exceed their expectations.

Bonsai's tip on how to write an influencer marketing proposal

Case studies 

Businesses, like people, rely on demonstrated experience to make informed decisions about hiring resources and marketing campaigns. That explains why social proof is a fundamental element of every influencer marketing proposal. 

So, inform prospects about your past work to build credibility. Include case studies for similar brands, relevant awards, and cover every detail to make your case. This section will essentially prove your ability to handle the responsibilities effectively by showcasing how you’ve done it in the past. 

Pricing package

Ultimately, your social media influencer proposal template should convey the pricing details of your services. Clarify your monetary expectations to facilitate the client's decision-making process and avoid any misunderstandings in the future. 

Assess the scope of work and timelines to provide an accurate estimation. The pricing section should list all your deliverables alongside the individual or collective charges for the items. This is where you can talk about the pricing plan as well—whether it’s a build-your-own pricing model or a standard approach.

But even when using a proposal template, here are a few points to consider. 

Create a professional design 

The cherry on top of the cake of an excellent influencer proposal template is its aesthetic appeal. A professional and neat design will make your proposal stand out among the many others your prospective client will likely receive. 

Focus on these design elements to create a pleasing proposal:

  • Incorporate your branding in terms of uniform fonts, colors, and sizes 
  • Include lists, text boxes, and white space to make it more scannable
  • Add high-quality graphics to supplement your text and improve readability

You can also add your prospect’s branding for a more personalized touch. 

Define your role

A golden rule to ensure your success in any project is to list your responsibilities in the brand influencer proposal template. 

Address every detail at length and leave no room for ambiguity or misinterpretation to foster a healthy client relationship. Highlight your purpose, values, and working style to set the expectations straight from the outset. 

Detail the timelines and workflow

Your influencer campaign proposal has to answer a crucial question—how you’ll manage the project and track your progress. This is where explaining the workflow, establishing milestones, and drawing up timelines will help. 

Show your prospects how organized you are with a clear description of these parameters to monitor your progress. 

Highlight your strong suits

Another decisive part of your influencer marketing proposal is the account of your digital skills. Demonstrate your worthiness to the prospective company by:

  • Expressing your understanding of their target audience 
  • Highlighting your talents to help them reach new audiences

Use this section to cut through the noise of all the influencer proposals and set yourself apart.
