Everything about Matches

The brands that you are matched with make all the difference to ensuring you have a great experience and achieve great results.

Matches 081020

When you first set up your Ampjar account we ask you some questions to understand two things:

  • Who your customers are and what they are interested in
  • Who your ideal new customers are.

We use this information to match you with other brands.

You have two types of matches:

  1. Share (formally known as Hosting matches) - these are the brands that you will shout out to your customers.
  2. Be Shared (formally known as Advertising matches) - these are brands who will shout you out to their customers

Once you're in

Once you get into your account for the first time, you can review your matches. We created these matches for you based on your profiling questions and they are ordered how likely they are to be a great fit.

Your matches will appear in your account as matched. You then have the option to unmatch with a brand for now, which means we'll remove them as a match for now but you may be matched in the future, or unmatch with a brand forever which means you will never be matched with that brand again. 
You can also explore more matches by selecting ‘discover more brands’ and request to match with anyone whom you think is a great fit. Select the tick and the matches will show as ‘pending’. ‘Pending’ matches are pending because we need to ask your matched brand if they want to match with you too. So if you see 'pending' on your matches, there is nothing you need to do to approve it. If the other brand hasn't accepted it, it will automatically turn to 'matched' in the weekly matching event.
To get started simply select one of your  ‘matched’ brands and provided you have added billing details, you can start shouting them out straight away. We suggest you have at least 6-8 matches for both ‘share’ and ‘be shared’, but really as long as they are good matches, the more the merrier!


Weekly Matching Event

Because great new brands are joining all the time, we want to let you match with the ones that would really suit you perfectly.

Every week we spin up our matching engine and find you new matches across all the new and existing brands on our platform. We do approximately 50,000 calculations just for you to help you find your perfect matches.

The timeline is:

  ET (New York) PT (Los Angeles) AET (Melbourne)
Find great new matches for you Mon 5pm Mon 2pm Tues 7am
New Matches go live Wed 5pm Wed 2pm Thurs 7am

When we find new matches for you, we'll send you an email to let you know you have new matches to check out. If you don't want to match, hit the cross and they're gone, if you do, hit the tick or just leave them.
