Welcome to Eloquens’ Frequently Asked Questions! Whether you are an Author or a User we hope to answer all of your queries here!
What is Eloquens for me as a User?
Eloquens is the world’s leading marketplace for finding and using ready-to-use battle proven Best Practices (models, slides, methods, videos, tutorials & templates…). You will find hundreds of Best Practices published by experts, academics and professionals in many categories: Finance, Startups, Marketing, Strategy, Technology, HR & Science.
If you have any questions, you can discuss with the community of users for a set Best Practice or category, ask questions to a specific author via the private messaging platform and give ratings and reviews on what you have downloaded and used. Moreover, you can decide to publish your own completed or improved version of a Best Practice. Why not try to improve already existing Best Practices too?
Why can I only sign-up with LinkedIn?
All Eloquens Users and authors are required to sign-in with LinkedIn. This is simply to guarantee the full transparency of the transactions on the marketplace. Authors are intrigued by knowing who their audience is so that they can connect with you via the private messaging platform and publish the most adequate content.

What licenses do I have when I download a Best Practice?
Eloquens proposes three different types of licenses: Business, Consulting, Student/Nonprofit. Go to Terms and Conditions to find out more about them.
Can I give some feedback to an author?
As a user, for each download you make, you are encouraged to give the author a rating and a review. Not only does this considerably help the author in assessing the quality of his work, it also gives other Eloquens users an idea of what they can expect. Like on Uber!
Can I sell the Best Practices I have downloaded?
You can sell a use case of a Best Practice to a client only if you choose to use to sign-up with a Consulting license. The Business and Student/ Nonprofit licenses forbid this. However, there are certain limitations for the Consulting License detailed in the license agreement.
How can I contact the author of a Best Practice I have downloaded?
To contact an author of a Best Practice, simply click on his profile and check the social links provided (LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, Facebook etc.). You can also reach out to them directly via Eloquens.com by Private Message.
Can I get a regular mail with suggestions of downloads I may be interested by?
Yes of course, Eloquens will send you an email, every two weeks with Best Practice suggestions you may be interested by, according to what you have in your library.
Can I showcase the Best Practices I have added to my library on my Eloquens User Profile?
Absolutely. In account settings, you can decide which Best Practices you want other users and the public to see on your personal Eloquens profile. This enables you to signal your interests, expertise and what you are currently learning to do.
What is Eloquens for me as an Author?
Eloquens is the world’s leading marketplace for publishing and sharing ready-to-use battle proven Best Practices (models, slides, methods, tutorials, videos & templates…).

Eloquens is a great way to make the best knowledge shared and accessible to everyone.
How do I upload a Best Practice?
Simply click on the “publish a Best Practice” button on the top right hand corner of the screen and open an account. You will then be asked to upload your first Best Practice with a description, some visuals and some keywords. A short description and at least one social link is required before sending your Best Practice for validation.
Can I publish Best Practices for free?
Yes. The objective of Eloquens is to get the best knowledge shared. Some authors are not here for the money but to make an impact.
What types of Best Practices can I publish?
Eloquens enables you to publish a wide variety of Best Practices. The only criteria is that they have to be of top-quality and ready-for-use. Preferred formats are video, podcast, excel, powerpoint, word and pdf. Standalone step-by-step methodologies are also possible. Typical tools include Excel Pricing models, business frameworks, functional powerpoint templates, business case templates, Valuation Models, Project Proposals, Business Plan Templates, Macro-driven Calculation Spreadsheets, Process Flow Templates, PowerPoint Maps, “How To” Guides etc, Video Tutorials etc.
Are Best Practices that I have done in my previous job my own property?
As long as your Best Practices do not contain any proprietary contents (code, brands, patents, designs etc.) and have no confidential figures, they are your own property and you are free to share them. Note that Eloquens will only accept Best Practices respecting these conditions.
Can I publish Best Practices as a company?
Of course, as a company or educational non-profit, you can create an account and publish your own portfolio of Best Practices on Eloquens, as a regular author.
How can I generate passive revenue on Eloquens.com?
Expert authors can decide to put a price on their Best Practices. You can choose your own pricing. For each sale, Eloquens keeps a 15% fee on net sales.
How is my generated revenue sent to me?
At each end of month, if your generated share of the author net revenue (= (Gross Revenue – Transaction Costs)*85%) is greater than 80USD, you will be wired the corresponding amount by Eloquens on your PayPal or Bank account on the 15th of the following month (Eg. if you have reached more than 80USD of author net revenue in September, you will be wired your outstanding balance on the 15th of October). If your monthly author net revenue falls below that threshold, your outstanding balance will be carried forward to the next month and so on – until you reach 80USD.
How do I share my Best Practices?
You can share your Best Practices on the Web simply by going to your Best Practice page and then clicking on the different social media links provided. In a few clicks, your Best Practice will be communicated to your different environments.
How do I drive visibility?
There are four ways for you to drive visibility on your Best Practices:
1/ Share them on social media (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook etc.) and test different messages.
2/ Post the link to your product Best Practice page on targeted blogs, in Quora conversations and in professional groups on social media.
3/ Target individuals in your network (1st to 3rd circle) who could be interested in either downloading or sharing your Best Practice.
4/ Download the work of similar authors to you and participate in discussions on their Best Practice page to make your expertise visible to all.
How to protect my IP when published on the site?
