Creators Deserve a Guild. Just Not This One.



  • 15K followers across 3 or less platforms
  • 25K or more monthly active website visits
  • 1 verified platform (excluding Twitter)
  • Paid activations valued over $15K (1 year or less)
  • 5 confirmed creative credits 
  • $500K in venture capital raised from institutional funds
  • $100K per year in gross revenue (USD or ETH)
  • 50K streams, downloads or installations
  • Github repo submissions
  • 5 confirmed creative credits

Meanwhile, the marketers “represent digital marketing professionals behind the camera” like social media managers.
