Yes, your participation in another platform doesn’t stop you from subscribing to TheSocialRace and from participating in the campaigns you want

Yes, of course! You will be able to issue a tax receipt for the amount of your income (maximum €3,000 per year). You will also be able to transfer your profits to a charity. In case you would like to receive your payment, you will have to issue an invoice on behalf of the entity of your choice or a tax receipt.

Participate in a campaign

For each campaign, you have to follow a briefing created by the advertiser in order to receive the maximum number of stars. If your editorial line follows the briefing of the advertiser, you will obtain the maximum number of stars. On the other hand, if your editorial line does not follow the briefing of the advertiser in its entirety, the number of stars will reduce and so will your profits.  

Advertisers propose visuals to make the task easy for you. However, to keep your editorial line, you can post a picture of your choice as far as it shows the product or the logo of the advertiser. 

It is up to you to choose the campaigns in which you would like to participate. You do not have in any way the obligation to participate in each one of them.

The briefing created by the Advertiser presents the ideal influencer profile for the campaign. Unfortunately, if your profile does not correspond to it, your post might be rejected. In you have any questions, contact us through e-mail or our social networks. 

You can publish one (1) post per campaign on one of your social networks.

The briefing of the advertiser presents the social media platforms in which you can participate. You can post on the one you choose, always within the limit of one post per campaign. 

A tag is a hashtag or a mention of an account. On a post, this one is preceded by the symbol “#” (hashtag) or the symbol “@” (mention).

Mandatory tags are specified on each briefing, such as #thesocialrace, which has to appear on your post so it can be counted. 

To participate in a campaign, you have to click on the “Participate in this campaign”  or " Participate" button . Participation in campaigns implies the acceptance of FAQs and Terms and Conditions of Participation. 

Operation and calculation of profits

A TOKEN is the result of the multiplication of the interactions received on a post by the number of stars received for this one. 

The stars allow to assess the degree of harmony between your profile, your post, and the briefing of the advertiser. In each advertiser’s briefing, the awarding of stars will be reminded. 

To calculate your profits, we multiply the number of stars received on your post by the number of interactions you accumulated on it to obtain the tokens, considering that each interaction has a different value. Tokens are then transformed into euros, taking into account that 100 tokens represent 1 euro. 

Thanks to the link of the post that you added to the platform, we have access in real time to your interactions and we can gradually update them. However, this update needs a short timeframe before you see the changes on your profile. 

TheSocialRace defines a value for each interaction. A share is worth more than a comment; a comment is worth more than a like; a like is worth more than a view.

Later, points are multiplied by the stars, so we obtain the TOKENS. 

You have the right to a maximum of one (1) post per campaign.

It is mandatory to register your post on the platform www.thesocialrace.com so we can validate it and give you your profits. 

You must register the link URL of your post as soon as possible, so TheSocialRace validates your post and registers your interactions to earn the maximum of profits. The accepted deadline is 48 hours maximum between the publication on social media and the register of the link of the post on the platform.

The given results (stars) are based on an evaluation grid according to the briefing and the demand of the advertiser: TheSocialRace reserves the right to modify afterwards the performance of a post up or down depending on the other participants’ performance. 

Payment and transfer of the profits

For legal and fiscal reasons, each influencer must issue an invoice to us, so we can proceed with the payment. These documents can only be made at the end of the campaigns in which you participate. Once TheSocialRace receives the invoice, the payment will be made within the next 30 days, under the condition that the posts are still online. Only the invoices over €25 are paid. 

The payment of the profits is only possible once the amount of €25 has been reached.  If this amount is not reached, you can either participate in other campaigns to reach the €25 and receive your payment or donate your profits to one of the three charities available on the platform. 

You can turn your profits into donations. The moment you decide to get your profits, you will be able to donate the whole or a part of your fund to a partner charity. 

The minimum sum to obtain profits is €25, so you avoid excessive PayPal transfer costs.  

Rules against cheating

Fraud in any form whatsoever is prohibited on the platform and leads to an immediate banning /removal from the service. Our moderators systematically verify the veracity of the interactions each post receives. In TheSocialRace, fraud is linked to the purchase of likes or followers, and the usage of boost accounts/groups/chats.

Yes, the briefing of the advertiser is available before participating in a campaign, so you can decide if you can/want to participate in it. 

Campaigns are limited to one account per participant.

TheSocialRace reserves the right to exclude temporarily or permanently any participant who does not respect the principle and the rules of participation. Any trickery, attempt of trickery or suspicion of fraud or cheating leads to banning. Moderator reserves the right of rejecting a post or banning a participant without mandatory justification if this is considered necessary. There is an e-mail address available to participants to guide them and optimize their posts or answer back in case of possible litigations. marie@thesocialrace.com

Modification of a previous post is rejected because the first interactions obtained were not addressed to the new post and that can be interpreted as a trickery as in recycling a previous post.
