Frequently Asked Questions
Who manages the Content Creators Register?
The CCR founders have more than 30 years combined experience in digital marketing, blogging and international accreditation services. You can read more about them here.
How much does membership cost?
As an introductory offer to celebrate the launch of the Content Creators Register, 12 months membership is currently free for the first 100 successful applicants. After the introductory offer has expired, normal 12 month membership is £75.00. Unsuccessful applications receive a full refund.
How long is membership valid for?
12 calendar months from the date that your profile goes live on the CCR website. You will need to re-apply annually to maintain your registration, at which time a check-up inspection will take place. You will be automatically emailed before you are due for renewal.
Should I apply?
CCR membership is suitable for all bloggers, vloggers and influencers who wish to use their platform in a professional manner, or already do. If you aspire to or currently work with brands, receive gifts or payment for your content creation, you will benefit from certification.
Do I have to be a full-time content creator to apply?
No, you do not have to be a full-time content creator. CCR membership is open to anyone who is 18 years of age or older and has been creating content for a minimum of six months.
What is the inspection for?
The CCR is dedicated to maintaining excellence, integrity and high quality within the influencer industry. We therefore do not accept self-assessment and all registered members of the CCR are checked independently to ensure that their content, conduct and processes are in-keeping with the standards of the CCR Code of Practice. This will include a review of your social media and content, and in some cases some further discussion via email.
How long does the inspection take?
Inspections typically take 10-14 working days to complete from receipt of application, but this is dependent on the amount of content and social media platforms requiring review and whether any queries arise.
What if I am unsuccessful?
Applications may be unsuccessful for a number of reasons relating to the Code of Practice. For example, quality of content may be poor, or disingenuous interactions and followings may be discovered on a social media profile. The advisor dealing with your application will provide you with constructive feedback should your application be unsuccessful. Unsuccessful applications receive a full refund.
Can I apply more than once?
Should your application be unsuccessful, you may re-apply in 90 days, although this duration may be extended depending on the issues encountered (eg: clearly fraudulent activity). During this time, it is important to address any feedback that has been provided, to give you the best chance of successful membership upon re-application.
Can I cancel my membership?
Should you no longer wish to be registered, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and your details will be removed. Please note, payment is non-refundable.
What if my membership is cancelled?
Membership may be cancelled in the event of a gross breach the Code of Practice. Members who have been removed will be provided with reasons why, and will have the opportunity to re-apply for membership after 90 days from the date of removal, dependent on the severity of the issue. This decision can be appealed.
