What Are the Credit Types?
- Post Credits: Self service DIY content that can be posted by members right from the vendor dashboard which include: press releases (1 post credit), hosted reports (1 post credit) and guest posting (5 post credits)
- Content Credits: Content that is produced by HTR in collaboration with the vendor requiring additional communications, processes and planning which include: Ghost Written Articles (2 content credits), Sponsored Articles - Short Form (2 content credits), Sponsored Articles - Long Form (4 content credits) and Buyers Guides (3 content credits)
- The Media Shop now had post and content credits separated
- What is changing for members? Members still receive the same exact benefits from their membership plans but when checking and using balances, you will do so for post credits and content credits separately
Will My Balances Be Impacted?
No, your balances will not be impacted. Companies will maintain the same dollar value balance, the only difference is that content credits now have a base price of $1000 instead of $250 previously. Here's an example of why this doesn't impact your balance in terms of dollar value:
Example: If your company had a previous content credit balance of 10 credits this had a dollar value of $2500 (10 x $250). Since content credits are now valued at $1,000, your company would still have $2500 worth of content credit on your account, but it would now be 1.5 credits instead of 10 credits ($2500/ $1000=1.5 credits).
Do Premium Members Still Receive Discounted Preferred Pricing?
Premium Members still do receive the same discounted pricing on all items as they did previously as well as all of the benefits included with your membership which can be found in your membership portal.
Why is this changing?
Over the course of 2020 tons of new benefits have been added to membership including: lead credit, post credit, content credit, advertising credit, awards credit and more. As these credit types have grown, so has the complexity in managing, tracking and using credits. Therefore, in Q1 '21 HTR is rolling out a new dashboard home page and ledger system (sneak peek) to make this process more seamless, easy to utilize and transparent for members. This update is in preparation of the upcoming improvements to the dashboard and credit management system.
