Churp Churp Community Announcement

   Category: Uncategorized | No comments

Dear Churpers,

As many of you might have noticed, the Churp Churp website was inaccessible for most of today (27 September), and it was brought to our attention that this was due to an intrusion into the networks of our web hosting service Exabytes, where 50 servers, including ours, were deleted. As a result, there was an interruption of services on our part.

Despite the deletion of the servers, our Tech team has since restored our site from a remote backup, and Churp Churp is running as usual again. However, there are some data that might still be missing, and we need help from all of you to ensure that any hiccups are ironed out soon.

There are a few ways you can contact us if you are facing any issues with your Churp Churp account, which are as below:

Churp Churp helpdesk
Dedicated feedback form

If you are encountering any errors with your account settings, user details, earnings, missing accounts and etc., please do get in touch with us via any of the ways listed above before 27 October 2012. Do provide us with as much information as possible, and do allow us until 30 November to resolve all issues.

While we are working hard to fix errors occurring at the moment, we also regret that we will temporarily be suspending cashout requests from all accounts until all matters have been resolved.

Thank you, Churpers, for all your patience and support through this time, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Sincerely,
The Churp Churp Team

Churp Churp Mechanics 101

   Category: Guidelines |

Once you’ve registered your Twitter and/or Facebook account with Churp Churp Australia and created your own unique URL ID, here’s a few things you should know…

1. When registering, it will ask if you would like to let Churp Churp authorize your Twitter and/or Facebook accounts. If you leave the box ticked as shown in the diagram below, it will automatically push out a message to your Facebook wall as highlighted below.

2. If you do not want the automated message pushed out to your Facebook and/or Twitter account, simply untick the box before authorizing. This will be the only time Churp Churp pushes out an automated message – from here on out, the rest is up to you.

3. To begin sharing campaigns and our referral program through Churp Churp, after signing in, select your Dashboard as highlighted in the top bar below. You will see in red that it says you have “1 new campaign” to be shared, this is our Churp Churp $1 per referral campaign. As we begin to add more campaigns to Churp Churp, they will show up here. To share this campaign using your own unique referral URL ID, click “Share This” (if it’s your first time sharing) or “Keep Sharing” if you’ve already shared this before.

4. The following page will appear with a pre-set message you can push out to your followers. If you do not like this message, you can create your own and “Save” it. Your saved message will over-ride all pre-set messages for this particular campaign. Choose which social media platform you’d like to share this campaign across. As indicated below and for this example, we’ve selected Twitter.

5. A second window will open. Here again, you can edit your tweet if you would like it to say something else. Do not delete your unique URL otherwise your referral will not be able to be traced and therefore cannot be rewarded. When you are happy with your tweet, hit “Tweet” to tweet it out to all your Twitter followers.

6. After your tweet has been sent out, the second window will close and you will be returned back to your Churp Churp Dashboard. Here, you have the option of posting out the campaign again to another one of your social networks. If, for example you would like to share via Facebook, hit the Facebook icon and the following screen will pop up. From here you can input your own message and hit “Share“. It’s that easy!

.

PLEASE NOTE

We encourage you to personalise your messages when sharing them on your Facebook, Twitter or other social networking platforms and only email or share it with your friends that might be interested. We strongly discourage spamming it on the partners’ Facebook Fan Pages and their competitors, sharing it on suspicious or Pay to Click (PTC) sites and sharing it with misleading messages.

If you would like to notify your followers that you are sharing a sponsored tweet, we encourage the use of either the #ad or #spon hashtags. Churp Churp is not considered as spam but more so just sharing things you already like.

Example: I am a movie nut – I tweet often about movies I’m watching and share trailers of upcoming movies that I am interested in. If a Churp Churp campaign involves sharing a trailer for an upcoming movie I want to see, I will tweet it out through Churp Churp because I’d tweet it out anyway, even without Churp Churp. It’s about knowing what your audience likes and what they’d be interested in – relevance is the key.

We’ll slowly be adding more campaigns to your Churp Churp Dashboard over the coming weeks so keep an eye out!

Introducing – Churp Churp Australia

   Category: Announcement |

We have some big news to announce today – we are very excited to be launching our sister company, Churp Churp, here in Australia!

You may have seen some tweets flying around twitter over the last few days from our trial soft launch but today we’re ready for the real deal…

What is Churp Churp?

If you love sharing the latest happenings, trends and brands that you like and love with all your friends across various social media platforms, then Churp Churp is definitely for you! Here at Nuffnang, we recognise that everyone has now become an influencer in one way or another so here’s your chance to take advantage of that!

Over the coming weeks, we will be building a community that rewards social media influencers like you for sharing messages on the latest updates, campaigns and events around Australia across all your social media channels.

You will receive notifications when new campaigns are available and ready to be shared and then it will be totally up to you whether you want to share it or not. If it’s relevant to you and your audience, then share it, if not, then you don’t have to!

Churp Churp runs in two different campaign forms:

Social Share: This allows you to choose the campaigns you want to share. Every unique click you get from sharing from your personal link will get you rewarded.

Social Seeding: These campaigns are pre-assigned to you. Once you are selected to take part, you will be notified by email.

Can I join Churp Churp?

Of course! You can join Churp Churp if you have either an active Facebook and/or Twitter account. If you are one of the first 1000 Churpers to register in Australia, you will receive a $5 kick-start into your Churp Churp account! Once you sign up take advantage of our referral program – for every one friend you influence to sign up with Churp Churp, we will credit your account with $1. So if you encourage 20 friends to sign up with Churp Churp, you’ll get $20 into your account – there’s no limit! Please note, earnings are not in real time and update on a weekly basis.

Does this mean I will be spamming my friends with ads?

No. The Churp Churp platform will allow you to choose how often you would like to share messages as well as which messages you think would interest your friends. Churp Churp will not send out automated updates without your knowledge – you are in total control.

Right now we are in the process of spreading the Churp Churp word. We’d love for you to get involved with our referral program to help build our community of Churpers. The referral program will be running continuously. Campaigns will be soon to follow.

You can sign up through your existing Facebook or Twitter account so head over to Churp Churp Australia to join us on this new and exciting adventure!
