What Is A Direct Offer?
Unlike Open Bidding, a Direct Offer is sent directly to a Creator by a Marketer for a set asking price. In the platform, Marketers are able to search for specific Creators based on different criteria (Age, Relationship Status, Location, Connection Tags, etc.) If a Marketer finds a Creator they would like to use in their Campaign they may send them a Direct Offer.
How Do I Accept A Direct Offer?
1. You can locate your Direct Offer on your Project Dashboard under the Offers tab.
2. On the Offers Dashboard, you will see all of Direct Offers that are available to you. Each Direct Offer will show the name of the Project, the status, the tasks, the due date, the publishing window and the payout amount. Tasks are the individual posts that are required for completion of that specific Project. The number in the grey circle represents the number of posts required for each platform. In the example below, you will see that this Project includes one blog post and one Instagram post.
3. If you would like to learn more about this Project, click on the name of the Project. From here you will be taken to the Project details page.
