In light of recent questions raised on the “Why Dialogue Earth” discussion board, a few changes have been made to the Project Overview that we would like to inform you about. Please note that changes are relatively minor and, therefore, should not affect the work of anyone who has understood and followed the brief as it was previously written. Rather, they are intended to aid those who are having trouble understanding the goals of this project.
THIS PHASE IS OPEN TO EVERYONE ON TONGAL, including people who did not submit videos to the competition.
GOAL – Using the five winning videos, any of the fifteen additional purchases, or your own video from the previous phase, try to generate as many views of the videos as possible within a period of sixty (60) days using Tongal’s new “Post On YouTube” functionality. Here’s how it works: READ MORE
What is Most Downloaded?
Most Downloaded is a new project phase type on Tongal that rewards members who share videos that generate the greatest number of downloads for a specific application or file.
Tongal members select any of the eligible video (in the case of winepicks, there are 15) from the previous phase and share them through their social and online networks. The videos are tagged with hover-over prompts to download the app or file. The goal is to amass as many downloads as possible in a specific period of time.
Why Have A Most Downloaded Phase?
Here at Tongal, we like to make things simple by breaking the process of creation down into smaller parts so that no matter what your skill set – whether it’s coming up with ideas or taglines, shooting videos or commercials, creating animations or graphic designs, there’s a place for everyone to contribute.
In the past, our “Most Viewed” Phase was open only to people who submitted a video to the competition. We wanted to give ALL the people who were great at promoting and distributing video content a chance to participate, regardless of their participation as a video maker. If you’re great at getting videos seen online…this is for you!
Who Can Participate?
Unlike the typical Most Viewed Phase, this Phase is OPEN TO EVERY REGISTERED MEMBER ON TONGAL. This means that even if you did not create a video, you may participate in this phase. If you are not a Tongal member, you can sign up for free and get started today.
How Does Most Downloaded Work?
Using the eligible videos listed below from the previous phase, Tongal members try to generate the Most Downloads of an application or file within a specified period of time.
STEP 1: Log in to Tongal and share any of the top 15 videos using the Tongal Video Player anywhere on the web. This includes, embed, email and share to places like blogs, other sites, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
*IMPORTANT: YOU MUST BE LOGGED IN FOR YOUR DOWNLOADS TO BE TRACKED. EVERY VIDEO YOU SHARE GETS TAGGED WITH A UNIQUE CODE THAT CAN BE TRACKED TO YOUR TONGAL USER ID
Here is a list of the fifteen videos for the winepicks project:
STEP 2: Each video has a “hover-over” and a link at the end of the video that prompts the viewer to download the application or file.
STEP 3: Every time someone downloads the application after watching a video that you shared, we will be able to track that download using your unique code and you will be rewarded one point. You can see your progress on the Most Downloaded Leaderboard.
*NOTE: The results do not update instantly to the leaderboard. In most cases, it takes a few hours for the system to update the totals.
STEP 4: The three members that generate the greatest number of downloads from within the United States during the next six weeks, earn cash. You do not need to be from the U.S., but the downloads need to come from I.P. Addresses located within the United States.
Wait, I Still Don’t Get It!
If you still don’t get it, you can watch this video tutorial below.
We know that you are all anxiously awaiting the announcement of the Nine West Winners, but with so many incredible pieces, the judges are having a really tough time narrowing down the field.
Nine West has elected to release the list of what they consider to be the 25 best and asked to have until Friday to announce the final results (the top 5)
Congratulations, to all of you who made it into the top 25!
In addition to the five winning Pitches, we are making five scripts available for you to choose from for the Video Phase of the RecordMyCalls Project. This means that as the video creator, you now have ten options to choose from instead of the normal five.
Just to give you some background, the scripts were written by some creative execs over at McCann Erickson, which, for those of you unfamiliar with the world of advertising, is “kind of a big deal.” This is an excellent opportunity for those of you who are interested in either becoming serious commercial directors or trying your hand at producing a script.
You can download all of the scripts by clicking here.
Tongal is excited to announce that we have partnered up with Audiosocket on the Kiva Video Contest.
