Welcome to Passionfroot!

This quick guide will provide you with all of the steps you need to make your first successful booking with Passionfroot:

  1. Set up your Storefront
  2. Add available slots
  3. Set up payments
  4. Publish and share your storefront

Step 1: Set up your Storefront

Add channel

To get started, pick which channels you want to monetize and add it to your storefront e.g. your newsletter or podcast.

Add product

Next, add the product you want to offer on that channel. This will be what brands can purchase and book you for when they visit your storefront. Depending on the channel, you can offer different kinds of products. We’ve given you some examples below, but feel free to choose your own product names! You can also sell packages of multiple products - click here to learn more about the types of products you can sell.

Placements

Each Product that you create can have a designated amount of ‘Placements’ per issue. For example, if you send a newsletter every week and it fits 2 classified ads per issue, you can say that it has 2 ‘Placements’ per issue. Indicating this in the storefront editor will mean that there are two bookable placements in that newsletter for partners each week.

Pricing

When it comes to pricing, everyone is different! You can choose to have a set price shown on your storefront, or you can hide pricing and ask for a brand’s budget. If you’re a newsletter creator and you want help on pricing your sponsorships, you can use our pricing benchmark guide here.

We want creators to receive 100% of what they earned, so we add a 5% fee (including Stripe fees) onto every invoice, which the brand covers. This total price is reflected in your storefront.

Add stats about your audience with Live Stats

Brands usually want to know the value of working with you by reviewing your stats (see examples in the table below). Our new release of Live Stats 2.0 allows you to showcase real-time performance stats for specific channels using data from InsightIQ (public) and Phyllo (non-public). Just simply connect your channels to Phyllo, and watch as your stats go live and stay regulated.

Add text blocks

Share more information about you, why companies should work with you, case studies and/or references of previous collaborations, or anything else you’d like potential partners to know.

Step 2: Add available slots (Optional)

Now that your products are set up, it’s time to share your availability so that brands can book you directly through Passionfroot.

If you follow a fixed calendar: Slots are great for Newsletters, Podcasts and select Youtubers. They enable you to create slots for your upcoming episodes/issues that partners can book - taking scheduling off your hands 🤩 If you want to add slots, go to Calendar and select “Add slots”:

  1. Choose a channel.
  2. Choose your product.
  3. Add your available slots for each product.

If you don’t follow a fixed calendar: For Instagram, TikTok, Twitter and unscheduled Youtube videos - slots don’t make as much sense. You can skip creating slots. In this case, partners will send you open requests where you can assign a date at a later point 📅

Step 3: Set up payments

To receive payments, you need to go through the Stripe onboarding in Payments. These are the steps you’ll need to follow:

  1. Click on Payments
  2. Insert e-mail address and phone number
  3. Insert OTP from Stripe
  4. Select country and type of business
  5. Verify personal details (Legal name of person, E-mail address, date of birth, home address, phone number)
  6. Share more about your business
  7. Select an account for payouts (Currency, country of bank account, IBAN)
  8. ID Verification (check Stripe for eligible documents)

You can find more information from Stripe here.

Step 4: Publish and share your storefront

You’re all set 🥳  Potential partners can come from anywhere and some of the best sponsors are already reading your emails, listening to your podcast or following you on social media, so it’s important that you link your page across your main platforms. Your Passionfroot page is the gateway to get inbound leads and streamline everything.
