IMVU routinely works with various Creators to make the gifts that are awarded to our VIP club members and awarded as bonus gifts for our promotions such as prepaid card and SMS purchases. Additionally we also promote bundles (most often completely furnished rooms of some theme bundles with Credis) to all customers via our site, offer messages, and later in the bundle store.

We want to ensure that all the Creators on IMVU are aware of how the process works in case you are interested in creating a bundle or an item for these promotions. The Creators of promotional gift products are prominently featured in all our marketing communications.

Promotional bundles information:

Effective December 2015, we are testing a new process for promotional bundles. Though creators can approach IMVU directly, we have enlisted the help of DarkAngel5 to aid the process. She will be reaching out creators (or you may reach out to her via an IMVU message) to discuss potential bundle ideas and then work with them to ensure the creations meet IMVU criteria.

Please note that just because a bundle meets our criteria is not guarantee that it will be promoted on IMVU as there are other resources and factors to consider.

Here are general requirements for promo bundles:

# of Items - 15 to 25
Icons should represent the product well
Rooms + Furniture bundles (we may rarely solicit clothing bundles)
Can be GA or AP (if AP, at least 30% of the products must be AP-rated)
Total profit can not exceed 10K Credits
Submissions should include promotional messaging in the format as seen on bundles like this and this
Ideally, creator should also capture and submit great screenshots of the bundle that we can use for our marketing purpose.

Some basic guidelines for VIP and PPC gifts:

All products must be textured and meshed by you alone and derived from IMVUInc products only. Promotional products cannot be set to derivable.
Each promotional gift must be very high quality. To get an idea of what we expect, please read the “Tips for a Successful Promotion” part of our promo bundle tutorial.
All products are locked for a 12 month period, meaning you may not edit the products. The items will remain in your catalog but at a very high price. After 12 months has passed, you will need to email us if you want your promo items unlocked.
IMVU contracts with the Creator of such gifts and pays them as per that contract. You need to be able to receive payment via Paypal or check made out in US dollars.
A typical VIP bundle contains about 10-15 furniture items and a room. The goal is to have a room that is well decorated.
A typical prepaid card gift is a room, a pet, or a furniture item.

If you are interested, please contact us via email at promotions@imvu.com. Please provide your avatar name and the type of product(s) that you can make for our promotions, and/or examples of your best work. We will review your account and catalog items to see if you fit the requirements.

Do give us some time to respond and please remember that IMVU has the final say in which gift(s) are selected. We are looking forward to providing a variety of gifts to our users with your help!

Thank you!

We are making changes to the VIP monthly gift/bundles starting in August 2013.

For bundles being given out as monthly gifts to our VIP members, we will not be transferring the products to IMVUInc account. So you will be able to market your brand and catalog as you used to.

We know this was a request from many of you and hope it entices you to submit your products to us for consideration for VIP monthly gifts.

We are looking for unique and creative themes for upcoming VIP bundles. They should be nice open rooms but not necessarily only parks and beaches. Whimsical, mystical, romantic, celebratory, etc themes are very much welcome.

Guidelines for VIP bundle submission

All products must contain your own original texture and mesh work.
All products must be directly derived from IMVU Inc. products only.
Your VIP promo bundle products cannot be set to derivable.

IMVU contracts with the Creator of such gifts and pays them as per that contract. You need to be able to receive payment via Paypal or check made out in US dollars.
If your bundle is chosen to be the monthly VIP gift, then the products will be locked for 12 months and you will not be able to edit them. They will however remain under your name and in your catalog.
Your VIP promo bundle submission should contain about 15 furniture products and one room.

Email us at promobundles@imvu.com with your bundle. If we choose to promote your bundle, the Promo team will send a follow up email. The follow up will be sent within a week of receiving the emailed bundle submission. This follow up will include requested changes (if any), estimated promotion dates, and any other questions, etc. Creators will not receive a follow up email if their bundle submission is not going to be promoted.

We look forward to your submissions for the fall and winter seasons.
