Rainmaker Collective is an influencer network created for bloggers, by bloggers. We connect brands and bloggers in order to craft unique and engaging conversations around those brands’ products and services.

As bloggers ourselves, we became disenchanted with other influencer networks when we realized just how much work went into applying for opportunities to work with brands – opportunities that, more often than not, never panned out! We were sick of all the wasted time. Why wouldn’t someone create a network that prioritized the influencers?

So we did.

When you join Rainmaker Collective, you are joining a community of content creators, just like you, who care about their audience. And since our influencers are our best asset, we have your best interests in mind.

Unlike most other networks, all of our brand/influencer connections are made in-house, prior to reaching out. We have connections with several marketing agencies whose clients we carefully match with our collective of talented bloggers, social media mavens, DIY enthusiasts, and other influencers.

Because your time should be spent doing what you do best: creating amazing content – not applying for influencer gigs.

Company Bio

Rainmaker Collective was founded by Alicia Lawrence and Adrienne Hazan in 2017. It started because of Alicia and Adrienne’s passion to empower bloggers to use their influence to help the brands they love – and get paid for it!

“We’ve joined several influencer networks in the past and none of them quite captured what we were looking for in a network, so we decided to create one,” says Alicia.

Extremely fast payments, uncomplex legal contracts, and low involvement in the proposal stage are just a few of the changes Alicia and Adrienne have made to prioritize the needs of influencers in their network.

“Our talented influencers are our greatest asset,” says Adrienne. “We wanted to create a network that respected that.”

The connections they’ve made in the digital space have been critical to launching a successful network.

“The bulk of our campaigns originate from the agencies we have connections with,” Alicia explains. “By providing influencer marketing services to several agencies, we have access to over 700 clients that we can match up with our influencers. Few influencer networks can boast that many ongoing client relationships.”

About Adrienne Hazan

Adrienne graduated magna cum laude from Kenyon College in May 2012 with a degree in Studio Art. While her major allowed her to specialize in video, her true passion has always been creating for the web.

She created her first website at 11 years old. While that first website was a Comic Sans covered, colorful mess of a fan site dedicated to Harry Potter, it ignited her love of publishing for online audiences and led to many other projects. She began blogging in 2012 and in 2014 created her current blog, Cleverpedia. Cleverpedia explores creative hobbies with a fun and beginner-friendly lens.
