FAQ

How does HeadTalker Work?

First, a person would create a campaign on HeadTalker. This campaign has a message and link that the creator is trying to get shared on social media. The creator would then ask people to join their HeadTalker campaign. Once the supporter goal and end date of the HeadTalker campaign have been reached, the message and link will be shared by all of the supporters at the same time on their social media account to their friends and followers. This allows for the campaign creators to have their link seen by new people who do not follow them directly!

What’s the advantage to choosing a larger supporter goal?

If you meet and exceed a higher goal, you will receive more traffic to your website than if you were successful on a smaller goal, depending on the amount of social reach your supporters have. We encourage most creators to start with a smaller goal (50 or 100) to allow them to gain some early momentum. Keep in mind that the goal can be raised later. If you need your goal lowered, you can lower the goal from My Account.
