A Note from the SwayBrand Team:

This is a very exciting time for SwayBrand! As the first Black-owned two-sided marketplace for influencers and brands, we have the welcomed challenge of educating brands on the opportunities of working with diverse content creators while simultaneously creating brand awareness and hand selecting a limited number of influencers to join our platform in its Beta phase.

Our goal is to be inclusive, but we believe in quality over quantity as it relates to our influencers authentikas. We are growing slowly and steadily to ensure that our small team can manage our day-to-day and we can expand as needed. Also so that we can make edits and tweaks to make this the best platform available before we accept more people to join.

As of December 9, 2020, SwayBrand has soft launched to the public. What does this mean exactly?

Time for some action!

Now that we’ve laid the foundation, we’ll be making a bit more noise in the industry, letting the masses know about who we are and what we do. This will open us up to receiving more incoming brand opportunities - a win-win for everyone.

We value your belief in us and your patience

We will do our best to not bug you with every minor change or update within our offering, but will be sure to communicate once we have some major news to share like new brand opportunities to view or major functionalities that may help you book new brand partnerships within SwayBrand.

And as we are on the road to our full launch, you will be the first to know - with exclusive, priority access to brand partnership opportunities.

What can you do in the meantime?

As we onboard brands, your SwayBrand profile page is their initial touchpoint to you, so be sure that it fully represents who you are as an influencer/creator. Make sure that your profile is as complete as possible. Secure your username, upload your photos, check off what types of content you typically produce and make sure all of your information is up to date.

Also, good people know good people. So let a few quality influencers in your network know about SwayBrand. Again, we are vetting influencers so not everyone will be accepted, especially as we are still in Beta phase.

We are still fine tuning our platform

Like with every tech platform and mobile app, there are small glitches that need to be ironed out and tweaks that need to be made. It is easier (and smarter) for us to identify and make these changes while we have control over the amount of influencers and brands on the platform. So if you see something or have a suggestion, please email

Thank you for being a part of our journey. Looking forward to providing you with amazing opportunities in the very near future.
