Thanks to Instagram’s popularity, it has become a great place to host a contest. Due to its limitations, you may be wondering “How can I host an Instagram sweepstakes?” Our Winner Picker makes it easy!
From comments on posts
Just upload to Insta with instructions in the caption for your fans to comment on the post for a chance to win. When you’re ready to pick winners, just login to your Woobox dashboard, click Posts at the top, then select Instagram from the left.
Find the contest post, and click on “Pick Winner”.
*Clicking the grey icon below the Pick Winner button allows you to export and download all of the comments from the post.
Click the checkbox next to “Users can enter by commenting on this post” then click “Pick a Winner”.
The winner and their comment is displayed below. This does not notify the winner or post to your account, so if you need to, you can un-pick that winner and pick again.
To accept Instagram uploads as contest entries, go to the Campaigns section of your Woobox dashboard and setup a UGC Contest with Instagram hashtag entry enabled.
Enter the required hashtag (or hashtags) in the field on the Edit screen. Once you publish the campaign, posts using the designated hashtag will begin pulling into your campaign. *Instagram is now only allowing access to previous hashtag posts from the last 24 hours.
