Bidding On Opportunities With Additional Files

Marketers have the ability to add Additional Files/Links to their Opportunities. These Files/Links are supplemental and are not meant to replace the requirements for your post. Files/Links can be hidden by the Marketer during the bidding process to protect information that they do not want to share until the negotiations are completed. These Files/Links can be Campaign Briefs, photos, etc. 

1. Log into your Account to view your Creator Dashboard. If you are eligible for participation and your profile matches the targeting for an Opportunity, you will see it in the Open Bids section of your Creator Dashboard. The number in the blue oval next to Open Bids lets you know how many opportunities are available for you to Bid on.

2. If after reading the Overview and Ideal Candidate description the Opportunity seems like a good fit for you, you can start the bidding process by clicking the Bid button.

3. Once on the Bidding page, you will see your Overview, Requirements and any Files attached to the Opportunity. The Files tab will only appear if a Marketer has attached files to the Opportunity. If there is not a Files tab, then you do not need to review any additional files.

4. Once on the Files tab, you can view the provided Files and Links by selecting Download. The files will then be downloaded for you to view.

5. If any of the Files have been made private by the Marketer you will see a blue box above your other Files/Links. These Files will become available to you once you and the Marketer have agreed on terms and completed the bidding process.

6. Once you have viewed the files it is now time to enter your bid and pitch for the Marketer. The bid price is the amount you wish to be paid for your content. The Kill Fee is the amount you wish to be paid if your content is not accepted by the Marketer. Your Pitch is your chance to stand out from other Creators by telling the Marketer exactly why you should be chosen for their Campaign.

9. Once successfully submitted, you will see the opportunity under the Pending tab on your dashboard. Remember that bidding on an Opportunity does not guarantee that the Marketer will accept it. The Marketer may also choose to negotiate with you on the price you specified. You always have the option of accepting, countering, or declining their offer.
