How Dots helps July improve payouts for creators

Founder & CEO, July

One of the biggest issues in today's era of social media marketing is for brands to deal with creators. July strives to make this process easy, by connecting brands with the creators they need to thrive. July wants to handle most of the back office tasks creators need to get done, such as invoicing brands and finding new customers. Before Dots, July had little to no infrastructure for invoicing, doing everything on an ad-hoc basis. While this was a solution that worked for them in the beginning, it was abundantly clear that this methodology would not scale.

That's where Dots comes in, by making automatic payouts incredibly simple for the July team. Dots' payout links made creator onboarding easier, faster, and with nearly 0 churn. The onboarding experience is often lauded by creators for how seamless it is. Additionally, the bevy of payout options allowed for users to get paid instantly - to the rails that they like. This gave July a competitive advantage in the creator space, ensuring their supply side remains happy and that their product remains sticky.

Additionally, one of the larger complexities in being an influencer is reporting income, specifically, generating 1099 forms at the end of the year. Dots makes this simple, collecting all KYC information, validating it, and checking it against sanctions lists to ensure that July remains compliant without adding any extra work on their behalf.
