Now let’s talk about your video pitch.🚀
After you’ve created your profile on Billo, the next step is to get noticed by hundreds of cool brands. For that, you’ll need to record and upload a 15s video pitch for brands.
Some tips and tricks for your video pitch:
Do not exceed 15s video duration and keep the aspect ratio 9:16 (you can edit your video with InShot app);
It has to be a product review, so grab a product you love, think of 3 reasons why others should buy it, and record a 15s video pitch;
Choose a well-lit environment or daylight, please avoid background noises. Don’t use special effects, text, or music in your video, just focus on a product you’re pitching!
And of course, don’t forget to show yourself in front of the camera with a product you’re pitching!
How do I apply to tasks?
It’s really simple! Just scroll through the active tasks on the app and choose the ones you’d like to work on. Click on “I want this job”, you'll be notified once the brand accepts your application!
How will I know I've been accepted to a task?
You’ll get a notification from the app. Make sure to turn on your notifications not to miss your tasks.
I’ve applied to the tasks but never got accepted
It’s time to update your video pitch! Make sure you upload a high quality video that represents your skills. We have prepared a few tips and tricks on video creation that will help you out.
What factors into my rating?
The amount of tasks you applied, how well you manage to meet the deadlines, the amount of requests for edits you’ve received and how responsive you are to our CS team.
How do I get the products?
Once you will be approved to the task, the products will be sent to your doorstep by the brands.
Do I need to return the product to the brand?
Most of the times - no. If the product has to be returned to the brand, it will be written in the task brief and the brand will provide you a return label.
How do I communicate with the brand?
We kindly ask you to not communicate with the brands outside the Billo app regarding the tasks on Billo since the direct communication has previously caused problems with product logistics, edits requests, payouts and etc.
How do I know what to include in my videos?
Follow the instructions in the task brief. You'll be provided with the aspect ratio, duration and main requirements for the scenes and mentions in a video. Make sure to read up on the brand and the product that you have to present. Feel free to write down a short script with a few key points, so you wouldn’t have to make up things on the spot.
Where and how do I upload created videos?
Select a task you've created a video for and click on "Upload video". Please always upload your videos via Billo app instead of sending it directly to the brands as in such case Billo will not be able to transfer a payout to you. IMPORTANT: do not post videos you've created anywhere else, only on Billo app :)
How long does it take for my videos to get approved?
On average brands approve videos in 3 days.
What happens if I don't upload the video in 3 days?
Please inform our CS team about the situation and upload your video as soon as possible. Our quality assurance team reviews the profiles that do not meet the deadlines and if such cases repeat, they suspend non responsive creators. In addition, sadly we will need to deduct the amount of the product price for the task from your next payout. We hope you can understand why such measures need to be taken.
What happens if a brand requests edits for the video?
Please fix the issues mentioned in the request in 24 hours. You can always ask for help or tips and tricks from our Customer Support team.
How do I get paid?
You’ll get cash rewards for each approved video to your provided PayPal account twice a month. Our average creator earns 500 dollars per month, the ones who actively participate earn double or triple the amount.
How long does it take to receive the payment?
Payments are made every two weeks to your PayPal account (make sure you provide it in your profile). You'll receive your rewards the same day as our accounting team makes the transfer, the latest in 1-2 work days.
Can I negotiate my rate?
Each task has a set rate (you can check payout and product (giveaway) value).
We love our creators on Billo, so we released a bonus system. Creators who upload 20 videos per month will get a separate bonus at the beginning of every month for the previous one if creators pass the 20 uploads per month threshold 🏆 And so for every approved video during the last month creators will get an extra $10 💰
