Have you submitted a custom ad yet? A great feature of the Plug is that Creators are able to create and submit custom ads for campaigns they are interested in promoting!

Earning commission and creating native looking ads are just a couple benefits of using custom ad media.

Why do we need permission?

An important part of the custom ad approval process is ensuring that we have permission to use any media featured in the ad in order to abide by policies that protect intellectual property and creative work.

In addition, we want to give the media owner a chance to decide if they want to be featured in an ad and if they are comfortable with the Campaign it will be advertising.

The Plug Media team needs permission to use someone else’s content or image before approving a custom ad submission.

How to ask for permission

Asking for permission can be scary! Let’s go over some scripts you can use to ask for permission!

Hello! I was wondering if you’d allow me to use one of your TikTok videos for an ad to promote (insert app name)? The ad will have your username in it and will be shared with other Creators to post on Instagram, TikTok, and Snapchat!

Hey there, I loved your media and want to know if I can use it for an ad with the Plug? We would promote it on Instagram, TikTok, and Snapchat! If it were to do well, it could also be provided to other creators. By chance, are you okay with me using this media for my ad?

Hi, (owners name)! I saw this post and thought it would make great ad media to promote (insert app name). I was wondering if you’d be okay with me adding new callouts and turning this photo into an ad? If so, would it be okay for other Creators to use it too? If the ad does well, it could be used on Instagram, TikTok, and Snapchat!

Where do I send my permissions?

Awesome sauce, you have permission! What next?
