Day 1 with Passionfroot

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.

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 payment fees) onto every invoice, which the brand covers.

Add stats about your audience

Brands typically want to know what value they’ll receive when working with you by looking at stats (see examples in the table below). Add stats to your storefront, choosing between Large and Small text depending on the type of stat you want to highlight. In addition to showcasing your Geographic and Audience profile, you should show your Performance stats:

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

Now that your products are set up, it’s time to share your availability so that brands can book you directly through Passionfroot. Go to Calendar and select “Add slots”:

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