TipMine Basics

What do I have to do to be a Tipster?

What is a tip?
A tip is anything that you feel will help someone else.  A tip can be in written form, video form or even just a picture.

What makes a great tip? Any tip—whether text or video—is best if it is clearly written or spoken—and not too long.  An attention-grabbing headline that describes your tip is key, too.

How can I add a tip?

  1. Make sure you are logged into your Tipster account.  If you haven’t signed up for an account  click here to register.
  2. Click the “Add A Tip” button located in the top right-hand corner of your screen.
  3. Choose if you are adding a Text/Image tip or a video tip.
  4. Fill out the Tip Form.

What does Source Web Address mean?
If the tip you are adding is originally from another website, blog, etc. then please provide that URL. The source URL is the website address that you see in your browser. Including this information will allow anyone who reads your tip to find out more about the content source.  This is a great way to promote your blog or company website.
