After clicking upload you will be brought to this page below. Here, you will have two options on how to upload your content.
Option One: The first option you have is to drag and drop your content into this drop box. You may do this by clicking and holding the mouse over your image and simply drag to image over this box and by unclicking your mouse and your content will begin to upload.
Option Two: The second option you have is to click on upload (circled in red) and you will be able to search through your files through your computer and manually select which image you would like to upload. Once you select your image, the upload process will begin automatically.
After clicking the upload button your content will appear as shown below. Next, you will need to input the location of where the content was captured (red arrow). Try to be as accurate as possible! This way if a media agency is looking for an event that took place at a certain location, you can rest assure they will be able to see your posing. After adding the location, please select “done” (red circle).
*Please note: When adding a location, this is to be the location where the content was shot at- city/state/country where the event, person, sport, activity was located while shooting. This is not intended for home addresses or where you are physically located while uploading your content.*
Next, the date/time the content was captured may sometimes be populated automatically, however, you will need to input the date and time if it doesn’t automatically populate. If you manually do it, please be as accurate as possible! If not, buyers might not be able to find you if they are looking for an event that took place on a specific date.
After selecting “done” you will be brought to the next page. This next page will allow you to add the title to your posting (red arrow). Make sure you add an informative and catchy title! Include the event and/or what the posting includes in the title. After inputting your title, please select next to continue to the next page (red circle).
After adding your title and selecting next you will be brought to this page shown below with your content being shown in the upper left of the screen. You will see three places where you will be able to input more in-depth information- media description, media category, and hashtags.
First: Please add a very detailed description. Add as much information as possible in this spot. Adding as much detail regarding your content allows for media agencies and purchasers to have the best understanding of the who, what, when, and what this content is all about!
Second: After the description, select the media category drop down to select one of the pre-populated categories that best suits your content!
Third: Hashtags! Add relevant hashtags that apply to the content you’ve uploading. Hint: the better the hashtags, the more likely your content is to be found. 😉
Scroll down after you fill out these three sections.
