YouTube - Create A YouTube Video Opportunity

Now that have created your first Campaign you will need to create individual opportunities for Creators to participate in. When you are ready to Create your Opportunity, make sure you are on the Sponsorship tab and not on the Content tab.

Make sure to put everything the Creators will need to know in this form to cut back on back and forth communication through the Offer Chat tool. You can view a sample Opportunity here. You can also view Opportunity Best Practices.
