You will retain the full rights to your video, but you will also grant UrSponsored the right to represent your videos to potential sponsors and other business interests. We won't sell your video, but by uploading your video you are agreeing that we are able to negotiate advertising space on your behalf.
Businesses and individuals can sponsor your video in two ways. 1) They can donate a smaller amount of money to raise your video's profile and advertise on your video's page, or 2) They can pay a larger amount of money to skin your video's page with their own design.
To help you raise more money sponsors can add graphics around the edges of your page to create a bigger presence for their brand. That's business, but it's the only way it works sometimes.
We are focused on helping you get funding, so sponsors pay you directly. Most other websites use a revenue sharing model - if even that - to give you small dividends of their advertising revenue. In short, we cut out the middle man and connect you directly to paying advertisers.
Sponsorship money can be withdrawn from the Transactions section of your Account Management page.
Once in a while an advertiser will create a contest in which prizes are awarded for certain types of videos. Each contest is different, and each contest is run by the sponsoring company. Please read the contest details carefully to ensure that you follow their guidelines to be eligible to win.
