Please Note: Workflow must be completed on an up-to-date desktop or laptop computer browser, system workflow cannot be completed on mobile web or app.

1. Now that your bid has been approved (or you have accepted a Direct Offer), it's time to create your draft content. From your Dashboard, click the Offer that is ready to have content created (it will be listed as Create Content) by selecting the Project name.

2. If it is a Multi-Channel Social Post or Blog Post With Social Shares, you will see more than one Task listed. If it is just a YouTube Video Post, you will only see the YouTube Task. Locate the YouTube Post Task and click Create Content

3. Once on the content creation page, you will be able to view the Draft Due Date, the Content Publish Date, and all of the Requirements for your post on the right hand side of your screen.

4. At this point, you are ready to create your content on YouTube. Create your video and then upload it to your YouTube account as an Unlisted video. Uploading your video as an Unlisted video allows the Marketer to review your post before it goes live on your channel. You can select this option from the Visibility section when uploading your video.


5. Now it's time to submit your link to the Marketer for review. Navigate back to the system and copy and paste your link into the box provided.

Once selected, you will need to enter the timestamp where the disclosure can be found in the video (this will need to be typed in minute : second format as shown in the example below). Based on FTC legal guidelines, your content must include a disclosure. To select your preferred disclosure, click on one of the disclosure options available. 

7. After you have completed your draft, select Submit Content to send your draft to the Marketer for review. If you're not ready to submit you can always select Close and Save Draft.
