Have a question? Here are a few of FAQs we receive most often.
Q: I’m looking for more information on your influencer network for my article, brand, agency, client… or anything in between. How can I get in touch?
A: We’re always happy to connect! You can read more about our company, Sway Group, on our primary website: http://swaygroup.com/. For specific questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: How often do you post new campaigns?
A: 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.
Q: Do you have a minimum number of pageviews, fans, followers, etc. that I need to have in order to be selected?
A: 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.
Q: But, my blog is REALLY small. Will you truly have work for me?
A: 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.
Q: How do I know if I was chosen for a campaign?
A: 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.
Q: Why wasn’t I selected for a campaign?
A: 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.
Q: iSway is asking me for my Google Analytics stats. What if I don’t have a Google Analytics Account?
A: Totally fine. Having Google Analytics allows us to always have updated stats on your site, but for those without Google Analytics, you can just enter your average monthly page views and average unique monthly visitors manually. Note that we use the average of the last three months. Just remember to update this every month so that we can have your most current stats when including you in proposals!
Q: What if the information on my profile page changes?
A: Please update your profile as necessary! If you move, or get pregnant or have any other changes that will affect the work we do with you, please remember to go to your profile, click “edit” and make any necessary updates.
Q: What if I have more than one blog?
A: Busy, busy! No problem. We allow you to include multiple blogs in the Google Analytics section of your profile. If you also have multiple Twitter accounts (busy, busy, BUSY), please just include the account with the highest and/or most active following.
Q: How does the tracking pixel work?
A: Magic! Just kidding. It’s actually pretty cool. The pixel is basically a 1×1 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.
Q: I completed a campaign and still haven’t been paid. When can I expect my check?
A: 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.
Q: Do I need to install the Massive Sway badge on my site?
A: 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!
