Optional Twitter Bonus Entries

Last Updated: Feb 16, 2017 03:48PM PST

If you're creating an offer that has our new builder (and most do!), this step is very simple to do.

While in your customize section, you'll edit your form field and click "add form field".
When you do that, click on "Twitter Share".

Afterwards, you'll see a drop-down option and you can choose to award users for Tweeting. Once you add it and save your form fields, that's all you need to do!

For offers on that are not on our new builder, follow these instructions:

Our Twitter Bonus Entry feature gives you a great way to increase sharing without requiring users to have a Twitter account. Some users have been confused, however, by the fact that they have to delete the text in the Tweet box in order to continue. This method will give users a simple checkbox to check whether or not they want to send a tweet:

Getting started takes just a few steps.

First, you will want to place this code into your Customize > CSS/JS section of your dashboard:

Then, go to the Form Fields section of your offer dashboard. Add a checkbox with a label "Send Tweet?" or whatever wording you like. To make sure it shows up right below the Tweet box, make sure to move the checkbox to the top of the form fields list.

If you'd like the Tweet box to be empty by default, just use this code instead and change the default checkbox function to "not checked".

Of course you can customize the text inside the quotes to say whatever you want about your contest - for the bonus entries to work, however, the offer URL will have to be somewhere inside.

And that's it! If users uncheck the box, the Tweet message will go away and they will be able to enter without signing in to Twitter.
