Welcome to a new regular feature in the Media Match forum - Quick tips on helping our users make the most of their profile and utilize all the available tools here on the website.
Today I thought we’d walk you through the steps involved in uploading a document to your Media Match profile - this could be a PDF of your résumé, a Word Doc of a cover letter, a spreadsheet of production teams you have worked with, or any other document.
Firstly, log into Media Match as per usual.
Next, click on “My Profile” via the top toolbar, click “Upload/Remove Files” from the right hand menu, and then click on the “Documents” tab at the top of your profile. You will see the two types of uploader: Flash Uploader (recommended) and HTML Uploader. Both of these are very simple, and the HTML Uploader is mainly there as a back up if you are using an older machine which doesn’t support recent versions of Flash, so firstly, we’ll click on “Use Flash” (fig. 1)
You will see a box expand and ask you to Select Files To Upload, which you can do by clicking on the “Browse...” button and finding the files from your computer that you would like to add to your Media Match Profile. Once you have selected, click on “Upload” and wait for the green bar to complete (fig. 2)
Once completed, you will see the document you chose in the Your Documents section - from here it can be edited or removed at any time. (fig. 3)
And that is it! When companies and other freelancers view your profile they will see the documents you uploaded on the right hand side of your profile (view my profile as an example). If anyone cannot get the Flash uploader to work please let me know here and I will add the steps for the HTMl uploader. Any further questions, feedback or problems please post below.
