Listings

How do I determine the price of a listing?

Listing price is often best determined by the context of the brand integration (eg/ prominence, screentime, how it’s used, how integral it is to the scene/story, etc.) as well as, the size and demographics of the projected audience.

Many deals start with a security deposit (about 10% of total).
Then, disbursements are made after each review round (typically 10% of total per review round).
Finally, the remainder is disbursed after the content is aired (published).

Sometimes, bonus incentives are offered if the integration exceeds projections. Such as, projected audience size ended up being larger than anticipated…or, brand received more sales than anticipated…or, brand achieved more press coverage than anticipated.

Structure a model that works for your partnership.

Do I have to cite my price or budget range?

No. 

You can choose ‘Do not list price. Contact agent’ if you do not wish to show pricing or budget range.

Keep in mind; dealflow typically increases when an approximate price or budget range is visible. Much like purchasing real estate or automobiles, the price can be open for negotiation. People at least know general parameters of what you expect.

How do I determine 'Integration Type'?

Determining the type of brand integration is relatively straight forward.

Images

How do I create images for my showcase page?

Header (horizontal) images represent your page to the world and show up in search results. Thumbnail (vertical) images represent your page also and show up in matches, connections, and many other widgets. Upload header image sizes no larger than 750kb. Upload thumbnail image sizes no larger than 400kb.

Images tend to get more attention.

Download one of the photoshop templates for advertisers or photoshop templates for creators to get started. If you need more help, perhaps have one of our specialists design an image for you by going to the ‘Add-Ons’ section in your ‘Account Settings’.

showcase page header image 

Why is my image is not loading?

Check the file size of your image.

Use free compression tools like Image Optim (https://imageoptim.com) to compress your file size.

Header (horizontal) images should be less than 750kb in file size.

Thumbnail (vertical) images should be less than 400kb in file size.

Other potential causes could be:

  • Slow bandwidth. This can cause a ‘Time Out’ error. Check your connection speed using free tools like Speed Test (https://www.speedtest.net/).
  • Spike in users at that time. Try again later.
  • We are upgrading our software or servers. Try again later.

Audience

What is a Target Audience?

Target Audience (also known as Target Market) are the people who enjoy your entertainment content (or buy your brand). 

Choose where they live, how many individuals usually engage with your content (or purchase your brand), and the demographics of your audience for better matchmaking by machine learning. eg/ age, gender, household income, household composition.

 Target Audience and target market

What are audience demographics?

Audience demographics are the people who typically engage with the entertainment production (or in the case of a brand, they are the primary market who purchases the brand).

Accurate selection of your audience helps the machines to better align you with more relevant partners.

 Audience demographics and target market

Why should I cite my Target Audience?

Machine learning needs to be taught.

In order to improve your matches, one of the attributes in the algorithms is an accurate definition of your target audience. This includes location and demographics. 

Overview Section

What is best to include in my Overview section?

Include this in your Overview section. 

  1. Title of your production (or brand name).
