We strive to pay all campaigns within 45 days of campaign completion. In campaigns spanning 3 or more months, payment schedules will be modified accordingly.
Note that campaign completion is the delivery of our final report to a client, which typically happens three weeks following the submission of the last post.
At the close of a campaign, you will receive an email with a link to set up a free account with Bill.com
Please note that if you already have a linked account, then you will not receive another invitation.
If you prefer to receive a paper check in the mail, please do not select the ePayment option. Mailed checks will expire after 90 days.
If you’re working with an international bank, it’s important to note that payments can only be made via paper check.
In order to process your payment, your mailing address must be current in Bill.com. We must also have a signed copy of a tax form (W9 or W8) on file in the Sway Dashboard.
Unfortunately, we rarely know why certain bloggers are not selected. It is really a matter of the client matching your blog to their marketing efforts. What we focus on instead is creating enough opportunities so that we are saying YES to you as much as possible.
If you are chosen for a campaign, we will notify you via email. At that point, you will be instructed to log back into iSway to retrieve your campaign instructions.
Installation of the badge is not required, but we would certainly love you to do so! The badge shows other bloggers and potential clients that you are part of our network, and helps us to spread the word. The more clients see this out there, the more work we get for you guys!
Maybe! We are actually working to close a number of campaigns that will be open to all of our bloggers, no matter how big or how small you are.
We really don’t. Certainly if you have only 5 readers it will be harder to sell you in to a client, but sometimes we have very specific criteria to fill (regional or demographic) so our threshold for the number of page views drops dramatically. That said, it never hurts to improve your traffic, which is why we have so many amazing resources available at www.thesitsgirls.com.
Our payment policy is simple - You get paid when we do. We do our very best to collect payments from PR agencies and companies we work with as quickly as possible. Often times this is within a 90 day window, but it can be longer. In the event that a Client does not pay us, we are proactive with getting our legal counsel involved and doing everything we can to push a program to completion.
Magic! Just kidding. It’s actually pretty cool. The pixel is basically a 1x1 gif that no one can see. By embedding it into the HTML of your post, we can accurately tell exactly how many people saw your work. Clients love this, and it lets us sell in more programs to a more diverse group of agencies.
Busy, busy! No problem. We allow you to include multiple blogs and social accounts in the platform and stats section of your profile.
We post campaigns as they come in! This can be somewhat erratic. To make sure you do not miss a thing, subscribe to The SITS Girls/Massive Sway newsletter. You can find the subscription box at the top of the homepage at http://www.thesitsgirls.com.
