Creating Your First YouTube Video

This article will help walk you through creating and publishing your first YouTube post in the platform.

1. Now that your bid has been approved (or once you accept a direct offer) it's time to create your content!

  • Approved Bids can be found on the Sponsorship tab under Actions Required
  • Direct Offers can be found on the Sponsorship tab under New

2. Once you accept your offer click on Create under Needs content on the Actions Required tab.

3. From the Enter Your Content page you will be able to view the opportunity details, required talking points and required links to go in the description of your video. You can also select the disclosure you wish to use in your video and submit the link to your live video once it has been submitted to YouTube. 

4. At this point you are ready to create your content. From here you will need to create your video and then upload it to your YouTube account as an Unlisted video. You can select this option from the drop-down menu when you upload your video to YouTube.

5. Now it is time to submit your link to the Marketer for approval. Since the video is marked as Unlisted, your subscribers and followers will not be able to view it at this point. Copy and paste your link into the Video Details box provided on the Enter Your Content page.

6. You will then need to select the type of Disclosure you have used for your video and enter the timestamp where the disclosure can be found in the video.

7. Once you have checked the box to confirm you have included the disclosure in your video, you can click Submit to send your content to the Marketer.
