🏵The Content Creator badge is not mandatory. When you create your account, you can choose whether or not to check the "I want to be a content creator" option.
✅ However, we can only recommend you to activate it: it will make you more visible to the brands on the platform and will encourage them to collaborate with you. For each publication related to a campaign you make, you can authorize the brands you collaborate with to share this content on their digital channels.
You can create your account without checking this option and decide to activate it later. Just go to your profile in the "My Settings" section and check the "I want to be a content creator" box.
