We have made some changes to the VIP program. Please read the below post for details on how this affects VIP promo bundles


We are looking for VIP bundles and have made some changes to the process. Please see our post below for details.


IMVU routinely works with various Creators to make the gifts that are awarded to our VIP club members and for our promotions such as prepaid card purchases. 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. The products are typically a gift to our VIPs as their monthly benefit or bonus gifts for folks who purchase using IMVU prepaid cards.

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!

Update:

We are looking for seasonal promo items! October and November are quickly approaching, and we want IMVU members to have incredible autumn- and Halloween-inspired products. These items will need to abide by all of the basic guidelines in the above post.

Some ideas:

Halloween
Haunted mansion
Scary fair: haunted games, rides, etc.
Spooky cemetery
Masked ball

Autumn
Harvest festival: general fall-themed rides, attractions
Harvest outdoor scene: picnic at sunset in vineyard/lake/etc.
Autumn bonfire for two
Misty pond/lake with rowboat for two

These are simply a few ideas to get you started. You can contact us 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.

We can't wait to hear from you!

Hi everyone,

As we make our way into the new year, we are looking for new promo bundle submissions from our talented community! January is full at the moment, but February is wide open. If you have a great idea for some romantic, Valentine's Day-themed bundles, please email us at promotions@imvu.com between January 15th through January 31st.

We are always looking for prepaid card gifts, VIP gifts, and other promotional and/or login gifts. Send any ideas for promotional products or links to finished products to promotions@imvu.com

Thanks!

Hello Creators,

Today we are announcing a change to our Promotional Bundle Process. For those new to Promo Bundles, they are room & product or clothing bundles put together by Creators and officially sold through the IMVU Credit Store. Our talented Creator community creates these bundles and submits them for approval to our Promo Bundle team.

The changes mentioned below begin May 1, 2013. Please carefully read each point before submitting future bundles:

Bundle Approval Changes

Starting May 1, 2013, when a creator emails their bundle for approval to promobundles@imvu.com they will receive an automated acknowledgement that we have received the submission.

-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.


Quantity of Promo Bundles Per Month

Starting May 1, 2013 we will be promoting about 4 bundles per month. We will be seeking high quality bundle submissions that require little to no changes. For an idea of what makes a high quality bundle, please see our helpful tutorials: What We Look For in Bundles and Building Great Bundles.

Our Promo Bundle team is finding new and better ways to market Promotional Bundles. We believe that by focusing the marketing on each bundle, and limiting these high quality bundles to 4 per month, we will see an increase in bundle purchases.

Over the next few days, Creators will receive a message about these changes. We are excited about our new process and look forward to seeing your latest bundle creations!

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.
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.
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.

Winter is nearly here and we’re looking for new seasonal bundles! We would like to see bundles that show off all the great sports of this season—skiing, snowboarding, ice hockey, tubing, and more.

Winter also hosts the most romantic holiday of the year: Valentine’s Day! As always, we love to see creative takes on holidays, so start planning your unique rooms and furniture now.

We are accepting these winter sports and Valentine’s Day bundles now through January 15, 2014. Check out our previous post for submission rules.

We have made some changes to IMVU's VIP Program that you can find in this announcement. Starting January 1, 2014, IMVU is no longer awarding the monthly furnished room gift for new VIP subscribers.

Creators may have some questions as to how this will affect the submission of VIP promotional bundles. As of now, there is no change to our acceptance of VIP bundles for 2014. Current VIP subscribers will continue to receive their monthly gifts until their subscription runs out in 2014, meaning we still need 12 total VIP gifts for 2014.

So....we still need your VIP promo bundle submissions! At this time, the process remains the same. Please see the above post in July 2013 for VIP bundle submission info.

Feel free to send me a PM if you have additional questions about the VIP promo bundle process. And, read our announcement if you want to learn more about the VIP Program changes taking place in 2014.
