The Basics of Billo

Billo connects the dots between brands and content creators so brands can get the authentic video content that will drive sales.

Using Billo is really easy! πŸš€ To keep it short and simple:

  1. The brand creates tasks on Billo Manage.

  2. Content creators apply to complete these tasks, Brand selects content creators and sends out the products.

  3. Selected content creators complete tasks, upload content, and get rewards.

  4. Brand downloads custom-made videos and uses them to grow their brand.

No sign-up fee, join and create your first tasks straight away!


Creating Brand account

  2. Add your Company details. Personalize your Brand by adding a Brand logo, cover image (that shows what your business does or sells), and some information about your brand.
