Creating your brand account on GIPHY : step-by-step guide.
Animated GIF’S are hotter than ever!
What’s better for your brand/business than using your own GIF’S and stickers with your company logo?
Before you start sharing GIF’s in your own content, make sure you’re in compliance with GIPHY regulations.
Read our step-by-step guide below.
THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN CREATING A BRAND ACCOUNT!
Brands are required to use an email address with a company domain that matches the applying username.
Your GIPHY username must accurately reflect the name of your business (numbers, underscores and other special characters are discouraged here)
Brand applications require a working link to the business’ custom web domain.
Enter the full URL of the social media account that best represents you or your brand’s web presence.
All applicants must have an Avatar.
BEFORE APPLYING FOR YOUR BRAND ACCOUNT:
Your GIPHY account and upload at least 5 GIFs or Stickers to proceed. Make sure you created or own your uploads, and that they accurately reflect how you intend to use your Brand account.
One you have your 5 GIF’s or stickers uploaded, you can fill out the application ( here) and get verified.
Make sure to fill out ALL the required fields!
It will take a week or so to get verified, if you don’t hear back from GIPHY within 2 weeks, I highly recommend to reach out and check the status. ( use this form)
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO GET YOUR BRAND ACCOUNT VERIFIED?
Verification allows your channel to appear as a search result on giphy.com. You can find verified channels by searching @[yourusername] in any GIPHY powered GIF search bar.
