Q: How Do I Upload Or Record Video?
A: You upload video by recording video with the SnapMediaApp. If you are unable to see the video recorder in the app then go to the recording screen (see image below) then turn the phone to the left so it is landscape. When the phone is in landscape the record video feature will turn on. Press REC and it will record video and upload itself and will be for sale on the SnapMediaApp marketplace.

Q: How Do I Earn Money?
A: This has got to be the easiest way to make money with your smartphone. If you have not installed the app yet then take a moment to download the newest version of the app from Google Play.

Next, record lots of good quality videos. The more videos you record the better chance you have of someone buying yours. A quality video is a video where the smartphone is on a mini-tripod so the smartphone doesn’t shake or move.

Then create an account so you can get paid. You get paid US$12.50 for every video we sell for you and the same video can sell multiple times. Your videos are for sale 24 hours a day so check your account balance often and request payment through the app as soon as your money is available.

When you are logged into the app you will see your account information such as total videos created, total videos sold, money balance in your account etc.

Q: Why Aren’t My Videos Uploading?
A: When you record a video watch for the “success” popup. When you see the popup give the video some time for our servers to process it. This usually takes a couple of hours then you will see your videos in the app and for sale on the marketplace.

Sometimes the videos are recording but get stuck in the videos pending screen (see image below). Press the refresh button next to the video to move it forward. Sometimes they get stuck due to an inconsistent connection to the internet.

Q: How Will I Get Paid?
A: You can withdraw the money you earn from the record screen (see below). Your record screen will tell you how many videos you have sold, how much money you have earned, how much money you have been paid, and your balance. When your videos are sold then click the “pay me” button then we will send you your payment via PayPal, WorldRemit, Venmo, or Cash App. We hold the balance of your earnings until your balance exceeds US$30 and you request payment. You may bear some or all expenses incurred by us in paying monies to you.

Q: How Do I Record The Videos Media Agencies Want To Buy?
A: Keep the camera still. Use a mini tripod or place the phone on a solid surface. Even the wind can make the video shake too much. Do everything you can to stop the phone from moving the slightest bit. Use the app to record short 15-second videos.

Advertising and Marketing Agencies use video as part of their news story or for an advertisement and don’t have time or the ability to record the video themselves. This is why they buy stock video. Point the camera at the action away from yourself. No audio is recorded, only video.

Q: How To Make Your Video Easy To Sell
A: To make you videos sell better adjust your keyword tags (see images below). The app automatically creates some keyword tag suggestions. To make your videos appear in relevant searches open the app, go to your saved videos section, click “edit tag”, then remove non-relevant keywords tags, add relevant keyword tags, then click “save tags”. You can also finger-drag the most relevant tags to the top then click save again. The more relevant your keyword tags are the more likely agencies will find your videos and buy them.

Q: How Many Times Can One Of My Videos Sell?
A: You will be paid for each video sold and your video can be sold more than once. The more quality videos you have for sale the better your chance of making money every day without having to work. Keep making good videos.

Q: How Do I Reset My Password?
If you are having trouble logging in or creating an account then try resetting your password.

Open the app and go to the account screen (see below). If you already created a login on the website then just login here. If you have not yet created a login then create one now. If you are having trouble logging in or creating an account then try resetting your password.

Q: How Can Record Videos Offline?
You do not have to be online or connected to the internet to record video. Many users record video all day long then when they get to a wifi connection then upload all of their video. This reduces the amount of data upload via cellular. See the upload now/later switch in the image below.

Q: How Can I Promote My Portfolio?
A: Earn more money by letting potential buyers know you have videos for sale. Use the custom artist link and post it on social media platforms to help promote your videos for sale. Facebook it, tweet it, post the link on your website, etc. Let us show you how.

See image below. First, open up the editor.

Next, create a custom artist URL. Basically, you are just adding your unique name to this URL: https://www.snapmediaapp.com/artist/

When you have chosen a name click the update button.

Next click on the 3 dots next to your custom artist URL to bring up the sharing feature.

Notice in the sharing feature the social media channels installed on your smartphone will appear. Now, share your custom artist URL everywhere you can. If it results in just one extra sale it’s worth it 🙂

Q: Why Can’t I See My Video(s)?
A: Some videos do not meet quality standards. We delete or set “not for sale” some videos that don’t meet the standards.

Some examples of no meeting standards include: Camera was moving, the action or subject of the video was not moving, the video was too dark, video was blurry, the recording was of copyrighted materials like televisions/monitors, the recording was in portrait mode, or nudity. These are the top reasons of why a video gets deleted or is set to “not for sale”.
