“How much will I spend?”
Creating reward offers is completely free – no monthly subscription required. Your only cost is the reward you offer when a creator redeems their clicks in-store.
For cost-per-click offers, you can only spend as much you specify as your max budget, plus our processing fee of 4.9% per click. You don’t have to worry about viral posts putting you on the hook for hundreds of dollars in payouts. If your max payout is $150, the most you can possibly spend is $150 plus 4.9%, or $157.35.
“How do I know what I’m paying for?”
On the EarnLocal dashboard, you’ll see exactly which content is being produced and shared on social media. You’ll also receive weekly email updates summarizing all the new content posted for your business, and exactly how many people visited your website as a result.
“How does a content creator redeem their offer?”
When content creators have received the required amount of clicks – say 50 visitors in exchange for a free meal – they will display a EarnLocal-marked REDEEM OFFER page to you in-store. This indicates that they’ve reached the required amount of clicks and have earned their reward. When they redeem this offer, their balance of clicks available for future redemptions is reduced.
“What about click fraud? Am I paying for those clicks?”
No. We take click fraud very seriously. We cross-reference each click against various third-party click fraud algorithms, as well as our own, to validate its authenticity. We also expose all this data to you, so you can see just how many clicks you’re paying for out of the total amount. Finally, if we suspect any creator of engaging in fraudulent click activity, we withhold their payouts and suspend their account.
“How about clicks from abroad? Do I pay for those clicks?”
No. You specify an allowable geography in which followers must reside in order for their clicks to be counted toward your payouts. We identify a user’s location using IP data, as well as third-party services. However, keep in mind that if your geographic policy is too restrictive, influencers may not take up your offer.
“What’s the catch?”
No catch – we’re keeping this as simple as possible. Pay only for the clicks which drive traffic to you, plus a monthly subscription fee. No more, no less. If you don’t find EarnLocal useful, you’re free to withdraw your remaining account balance and cancel your subscription at any time. Getting started is fast and risk-free.
