How do credits work?

  • Your follower counts determine how many credits you earn as you share content within the VCB dashboard.
  • As you earn credits by sharing, you build up a “bank”
  • When you submit your own project to VCB, you’ll need to allocate some or all of your credits to this project (you call it “budget” although I think “pool” is more reflective of what it is)
  • VCB members share your content, which earns them content from the pool you’ve allocated to your project. Remember that their follower count allows them to earn higher amounts of credits as they share, but this is okay; you’re willing to give up 5 credits for a tweet from someone with 100,000 followers, while a share from someone with 500 followers only costs you 1 credit.
  • If your content goes so viral that you run out of credits in the pool for that project, the project is paused until you allocate more using credits you’ve earned yourself from sharing other members’ posts.

Here’s how much you spend when people share your content:

Twitter Followers

100-999 = 1 credit
1000-4999 = 2 credits
5000-9999 = 3 credits
10000-49999 = 4 credits
50000+ = 5 credits

Linkedin: You earn 2 credits for each share but you need to have at least 500 connections of Linkedin to qualify for sharing

Tumblr: You earn 2 credits for each share but you need to have at least 30 followers of Tumblr to qualify for sharing

Pinterest: You earn 4 credits for each pin but you need an established Pinterest presence to qualify for sharing

[Note: You can use the same chart to figure out how much you are going to earn when sharing other users’ projects, based on your following.

Mind that you need at least 100 followers on Twitter, at least 500 connections on LinkedIn, and at least 30 followers on Tumblr in order to share VCB projects.

Your Pinterest account should be well-established either, please read more about this here
