Navigating Your Creator Dashboard

When you first log into your account you will be taken to the main page, your Creator Dashboard. From here you will be able to locate your bids and active opportunities as well as navigate to other pages within the platform. Lets get started! 

Navigation Bar

Sponsorship and Content

There are two types of campaigns in the platform; Sponsorship Campaigns and Content Campaigns. Sponsorship pertains to posts that you distribute through your social channels. For example, creating a blog post and sharing it with your followers on your blog. Content refers to Articles, Infographics, and Images that are delivered directly to the brand without distribution on your social channels. For example, writing an article that could be used either on a Brand's website or in a newspaper/magazine. You can find more information about creating content for these types of opportunities here. 

ContentAmp

ContentAmp allows Creators to promote various types of content on their social media channels. With ContentAmp, Creators have the ability to review and share content for commission. Once the Creators share their chosen piece or pieces of content, they will be paid for their work on a Pay Per Click basis. To learn more about ContentAmp click here! 

SocialLinks 

The SocialLinks tab will take you to the SocialLinks discover page. SocialLinks provides our Creators with a great way to earn a little extra in the platform. You can earn commission when someone purchases an item you have shared on your social media channels. To learn more about SocialLinks click here! 

Payments

If you have participated in a Campaign and have expenses that need to be reimbursed, you can request a payment from the Marketer on your Payments tab. The Payments tab is not to be used for requesting payments from Marketers for any Sponsorship or Content opportunities that you have completed through the platform. You can find more information about your Payments tab here.

Tools

The Tools tab will direct you to the Tools home page. There are two types of Creator Tools offered in the platform; ShareMonitor and SocialSearch. Both of these tools will allow you to track various social posts with the click of a button. You can find more information about both of these Tools here. 

Balance Button

The Balance button located at the top of your account will show you how much you have in your Earned Balance (earnings from opportunities you have participated in)​​​​​​. You can also use this button to navigate to Finance Dashboard, as shown below:

 

Notification Center 

Next to your Balance button you will see your Notification Center icon. This button will take you directly to your Notification Center for all of your Offer Chats. Once on the Notification Center Dashboard you can navigate through all of your Offer Chats with the Marketers. 


Account Avatar

Next to your Notification Center icon you will see your account Avatar. Your account Avatar will be the image that is displayed to Marketers when they are searching for Creators in the system. This is essentially your brand image, so make sure to choose your account Avatar wisely. 

You can change your account Avatar by selecting the arrow next to your name and then selecting Account

Account Name

Following your account Avatar is your account Name. Your account name is also provided to the Marketers in the Creator search and is the only name that will appear along with your different connections. We suggest either using your own name or the name of your Blog (if you have one). You can change the name on your account by selecting the arrow next to your Name and then selecting Account

Creator Plan

You can also view your Creator Plan type. When you first sign up in the platform, your account is automatically assigned to the Free plan. You can always upgrade to a paid plan if you choose to do so once you have set up your account.  

Navigating Your Bids/Offers 

When working in the platform, your bids and offers tabs will provide you with all of the necessary information for bidding on opportunities and creating content.  The New, Pending, Completed, and Canceled tabs will help you to navigate through the bidding process.
