One of our BIGGEST updates yet ... please read

Nov 4th 2010 at 5:02 PM

Well, the development team has been very hard at work recently and you are going to love what we have for you today!

Here is a what you will find in this update:

1) New video spotlight section
2) Important note about videos
3) Sponsoring content within IM faceplate
4) The winners


As you know, you can currently create "spotlights" and put them on your faceplate.

And one of the types of spotlights you can create is a "video spotlight".

Well, it's no secret that video is really a key part of any marketing plan and you can really benefit from the use of video in your branding as well.

The trouble is that it can be hard to get your video noticed.

Well, that has all changed!

We have now brought video spotlights into the community pages within IM faceplate and the result is something you need to see for yourself.

You can easily access this new area by going to the COMMUNITY tab and then the SPOTLIGHTS link in the sub menu.

BUT hold on, because we have a LOT more to tell you about!

Along with bringing video spotlights "into the spotlight" (sorry, couldn't resist saying that :)) ... we have also added the ability for members to "like" them and also comment on them.

PLUS ... we have 3 areas on that page where members can get additional exposure to their video.

1) The first place is the big video at the top of the page that is already loaded into the player and ready to go.  This is a sponsored spot which requires credits (more on that in a moment).

2) The second area is directly to the right of the big video.  This area shows thumbnails of videos from PRO (upgraded) members.  It doesn't cost anything for your video to get exposure here.

3) The third area is just below the PRO videos and will display (randomly) the more popular videos.


In order for your video spotlight to be eligible for ANY of the areas on the community spotlights page, it must meet the following guidelines:

1) Appropriate content only (obviously)

2) When creating your spotlight, don't add ANY other code or text other than the video embed code because we will not approve it for this page since it messes up the layout.

3) You are encouraged to add a video description (and a link if you like) in the box provided when creating/editing your video spotlight from your faceplate editor.

And that's it!  Really simple.  Now, if your current video spotlight has some extra text or code or links where they shouldn't be, then just go edit them to meet the guidelines and we will get it approved for this community spotlights page right away!


Great news!  You can now sponsor various content within IM faceplate.

You can sponsor your faceplate, your articles, and your video spotlights which will display them in prominent positions with the community pages.

So, how do you sponsor stuff?

To sponsor your content, you will first need to purchase credits.  You will then use these credits to sponsor your faceplate, articles and video spotlights whenever you wish.

Sponsored faceplates will show up at the top of the "FACEPLATES" page.

Sponsored articles will show up at the top of the "ARTICLES" page and also at the top of each article "category" page if your sponsored article is also in that category (very targeted!)

Sponsored videos will be displayed in that big video box at the top of the "SPOTLIGHTS" page as mentioned earlier.  This is a great way to get exposure to your videos!

You can access the BUY CREDITS page and also the SPONSOR CONTENT page from the sub menu of the MY ACCOUNT tab.


Thanks again to everyone that has posted so far on the ways they are promoting IM faceplate.

We will continue to watch this group and likely give away even more prizes.

Here are the 5 winners who have each won a free month of PRO membership.

visionary (1 month refunded because you are already PRO)

Thanks again, and congratulations to the winners.

Well, that's all for now.  We will be making some additional tweaks and additions over the next couple days, so we appreciate your patience.

Please check out the new SPOTLIGHTS section, and then leave us your comments below. 

We really look forward to your feedback!  Thanks.

Hi It would be even fantastic if you can add Alertpay as an alternative payment option.2 times my Paypal account have been frozen.1 time it took 5 weeks for them to open it up again.This time I still waiting to get it up again.It is not only me that experiences this.Me my self will never ever use my credit card online.It is simple not safe.Swedish banks have poor security policy regarding safe credit card for shopping online.It seams that there will be some changes next year but until then it is a big no no using credit card online from my point of view.The IM faceplate get better and better.Keep up the good work.
