As an influencer content distribution campaigns are amazing because you can leverage the brands content to easily share something new to your followers with minimal effort.
What Is A Content Distribution Campaign?
A content distribution campaign is when a brand has some predefined content which they are looking for an influencer to distribute to their followers. Good examples of C.D. (content distribution) campaigns are contests, sharing branded social posts, retweeting content, cooking recipes, services, charities, and distributing brand specific images or videos. Learn what it looks like when a brand creates a Content Distribution Campaign.
Things to know about Content Distribution Campaigns
You will NOT receive a product The brand is giving you content (images, videos, pdfs, text) to post on your social media profiles.
You can post and get paid very quickly Since you don't need to wait for a product to arrive. You can post to your network as quickly as you get approved. Tomoson has even integrated with certain networks so you can directly post from Tomoson to your social media page in one-click.
Review the content BEFORE you apply As an influencer you'll be able to see what content the brand wants posted before you apply to the campaign. Click on the campaign image or title and scroll down the page to see all the information.
The green instructions button will have all the content If you're not sure where to download the content for your Instagram post click on the green instructions button after you're hired.
Always read the special instructions If there are special instructions make sure to read them because you may need to tweak a blog post. For example, brands may want you to write a blog post and they will list some content they want to be used in your blog post. Beyond that the special instructions will give you some background on their company, so you can understand what their brand is all about and write a complete blog post.
How to verify that you've completed your tasks.
After you're hired for a campaign there are three ways you can complete the tasks and verify it's been done.
Direct post If the network allows it, you'll be able to post the brands content directly to your profile with one-click. Currently, you can only do this for Facebook and Twitter. We are currently working on integrating more networks to our API.
Pick from recent posts After you download the content from your instructions button and post it to your social network. Click on the pick from recent posts, click refresh and you'll be able to see the post, click verify and you're done. Currently, this is the preferred method for Instagram.
Add URL manually Typically this is the last resort because you'll need to copy the URL from your social post and copy it onto Tomoson directly to verify the task. This method can be used for any network at any time.
