Last Updated: Apr 14, 2017 01:40PM PDT

This article will take you through every step needed to create a Woobox campaign. Whether it's a sweepstakes or a coupon, most of the same principles will apply. You should at least be aware of all of the options available to you on this page (though a lot of contests will not need every single option).

  • Fill out the Edit page. Make sure the start and end dates are set up to match your campaign's timeframe.
  • Add additional form fields. By default most of our apps will collect an email address. To add additional fields to your form, go to the Customize page and hover over the entry form and select "edit".
  • Customize with Images or HTML. Go to the Customize page to add an component like an image or video. Also you can hover over and select "edit" on any content on the page to change its content either with or without HTML.
  • Customize Share Text. By default, share text comes from the Title and Description on the Edit page. If you want users to share something different, set that up in the Sharing section of your dashboard. As well as hovering over the sharing options on the Customize page and selecting "edit".
  • Enable Hashtag Entry (for photo and video contests). By default, people can enter via file upload in the app. However, from the Edit page you can set up your hashtag entry 
  • Customize some wording. If you want to change wording in the app, such as "Enter this contest" or "Get a coupon", go to the Language section of your dashboard.
  • Preview it to make sure everything looks right. You can do this by clicking on your Woobox Contest URL found at the top of the menu bar within your contest. Note: You will need to make the contest active based on the start and end dates to view it live. It will not be public but in a testing environment called admin only mode. 
  • Activate the campaign. When created, an campaign is only visible to admins. To publish it, go to the Overview page and click Activate. This will require a Woobox paid plan.
  • Install on Facebook and/or Embed in your Web Site. The Facebook Page Tab section of your dashboard allows you to install a tab to the top of your Facebook page. The "Embed" section of your dashboard gives you some code you can cut and paste into your web site to show the contest there. You can do both of these at the same time.
  • Post the woobox.com campaign link. You can post the link to Facebook using our Promote feature, or you can copy and paste the link into your news feed. You can also share on Twitter, via emails, and on your web site with the same URL. Driving more traffic to your campaigns.
  • Create a Facebook ad. If you want to drive additional traffic to the campaign, go to the Ads section inside Woobox and create an ad. We make it easy to set up a custom audience and promote it at any budget. (Optional)
  • Pick a winner. Once your contest is over, head to the Winners section of your dashboard to choose 1 or more winners. You can do this as often as you need to, even during the contest with no problem.
  • Export your data. Woobox provides a CSV file with all of the information that users have provided to you. Just go to the "Export" section of your dashboard followed by "Download exports" and click "Request export", that will begin the exporting process and soon it will give a download button once the file is complete.
