Creatorland Platform Updates

Explosive Growth Alert! 🚨

Creatorland is on the move, with our community swelling by 2,000 new users weekly — all thanks to a staggering 25,000 to 30,000 invites sent from our dedicated existing users to future creatorland members. This brings us to 10,000 creators, talent managers, marketers, and industry insiders all inside one professional network. 

This is the power of Creatorland in action: real users, real growth, real momentum.

Back in October, we rolled out a simple Google Sheet to help our community navigate through the rapidly-growing network at Creatorland. It was a bit rough around the edges, yet it became a daily go-to for hundreds of you. Inspired by your enthusiasm, we've upped our game.

Dive into the new and improved catalog.creatorland.com for a seamless browsing experience. Now with search and filtering, you can effortlessly explore creators by hiring status, location, collaboration interests, content, and creator types — all streamlined, optimized for both mobile and desktop, all still free. It's our little way of saying thanks for growing with us!
