In this guide, we’re gradually moving on to the creation of smart contract — the next step in starting your cooperation with influencers on the SocialMedia.Market platform. You have already created and configured an advertising campaign in the Step 1 and set a MetaMask wallet for protected payments on the platform in the Step 2. Some influencers may have already applied for your sponsorship, so now it’s time to get a closer look at the Smart contract.
Smart contract protects your deal and holds payment until the job is actually done. It’ll help you stay confident that an influencer you partner with gets their fair payment for the job well done. So let’s get on with it, the following step-by-step guide will tell you how to create and configure smart contract.
Advertising campaign you’ve created is now visible for influencers. As soon as they apply for your campaign, you can discuss any questions and requirements in detail via ‘Messages’.
The ‘Messages’ is where all your current and previous conversations on the platform are held and archived. You can use it to communicate with influencers to settle any questions, create smart contracts, and check the status of your advertising campaign. The ‘Messages’ includes 4 essential elements of the interface:
2. List of contacts — your messaging inbox, where you can see a list of dialogues with influencers you had or have currently; choose the required dialogue to continue conversation;
3. Dialogue box — your messaging space, where you can discuss anything concerning the campaign directly with an influencer and settle on the smart contract creation;
4. Set of buttons above the dialogue box:
Now, let’s move on to the first step in the smart contract creation.
STEP 1: Confirm the cooperation.
Discuss the details of your sponsorship with an influencer in the ‘Dialogue box’ and confirm that you are willing to work with them. The smart contract now comes into play.
STEP 2: Create smart contract.
Once you’ve settled all questions, click ‘Create contract’ above the ‘Dialogue box’:
You will open the smart contract configuration menu and get to the third step.
STEP 3: Confirm smart contract details.
Now, you need to fill out the details of your smart contract and issue it to the blogger. The following points provide a blogger with the general smart contract info:
Thoroughly check each field so that there are no mistakes or confusing data and an influencer understands all conditions clearly. Then click ‘Create contract’ (10).
TIP. You can change smart contract details, but you have to mark any rearrangements in the created smart contract to stay on the same page with your promotion partner. The ‘Edit contract’ button is intended for that purpose.
You will be notified when the influencer signs the contract. At this stage, the campaign status will change from Pending to Processing. Right inside this system dialogue, you can double check contract specifications and influencer’s profile, with ‘Contract info’ and ‘Open profile’ respectively.
STEP 5: Sign Smart Contract
Once all is checked, settled and influencer has signed the contract, you can start the campaign by clicking ‘Sign contract’. Influencer will start working on your promotion and your campaign will be protected by the confirmed smart contract.
Congratulations, your advertising campaign is now full on up and running. You have successfully created the basic ad campaign, enlisted it for influencer to join, got yourself a protected MetaMask wallet to pay for influencers’ job, and reinforced all working terms in a smart contract.
