Spreadshop has put together an expert team of content industry leaders, creative entrepreneurs, and creator economy consultants to form their first-ever Creator Advisory Board. This initiative aims to shape the next chapter of creator commerce for Spreadshop and beyond.
Spreadshop.com is a software as a service (SaaS) provider that helps designers, creators, and influencers monetize their custom merchandise online. They have announced the formation of their first ever Creator Advisory Board, under the strategic guidance of an accomplished group of creatives, to further empower the creator community.
Since 2016, Spreadshop has focused on becoming the best merchandise platform for creators of all kinds. In 2020, Spreadshop became an official YouTube partner, allowing eligible shop owners connect their shop to the Youtube Merch Shelf, Store Tab, and more. Last year, Spreadshop launched a Brand Ambassador Program with the goal of empowering shop owners with added value. Brand Ambassadors not only educate creators about how to use the platform, but also create content and workshops designed to help creators live a more sustainable creative life.
Lauren Virgin, Influencer Marketing Manager at Spreadshop, shared, “I am beyond excited to add the Creator Advisory Board to our existing Brand Ambassador program! We’ve already seen so much success working with only a few of these pros, thereby helping smaller creators grow their channels or brands to monetize their merch. Being able to scale our program with a wider variety of experts will be awesome. I can’t wait to use their guidance to help even more creators in the future to ultimately become a key part of the new creator economy.”
Spreadshop’s Creator Advisory Board will meet regularly to give feedback, discuss topics important to the creator community, and demo upcoming platform features. One of the first topics of discussion will be input on new print on demand products, with a heavy focus on more sustainable clothing for all.
Millie Adrian of It’s Modern Millie and a founding member of the creator board says, “It’s one thing to work with a brand on a one-off collaboration, and it’s another to partner with a company that truly sees your value – and that you believe in. Together we can create a more significant impact. I love working with Spreadshop as a brand ambassador and am beyond thrilled to become a founding member of the Creator Advisory board. It’s exciting to see a company not only invest in their creators but create a space where they can receive direct feedback, thoughts, and opinions. It’s a great help to guide their projects with a creator perspective in mind. I truly hope other brands see these strides Spreadshop is making and get inspired to take similar action.”
