How to Create an Instant Win Contest
With the New Instant Win Builder, creating your next Instant Win is faster than ever. Here is a step by step setup guide to help you create, edit, customize, and go live in just a few short minutes.
When you first login to your Woobox.com dashboard, you are directed to the Campaigns window. From the Cmpaigns window, you can create your Instant Win by simply clicking the big green Create a New Campaign button in the top right corner, then selecting Instant Win.
Once you’ve created your new Instant Win, the next step is to enter your Title and Description. You can always edit this content in the Customize section later.
Set start and end times based on your local timezone. Your timezone is detected by your browser settings.
If you want to limit the amount of entries each user can have, change “Only allow users to enter once per…” from No to Yes. You can limit users to one entry per Email Address, Email Address per day, Facebook user, Facebook user per day, or Twitter user.
Next, you will need to set how often you would like non-winners to be able to try again in the Attempts area.
If you want users to confirm they are of legal age, enable the age-gate in the Advanced -> Presentation section.
Once your promotion is all setup, you can go live for public users by turning off admin-only mode.
From the Prizes section you can set up the prizes as to which you would like to give away and the frequency as to which they will be awarded.
From the Voucher page within your offer’s Customize section you can set up the pages for each prize. You will need to click the Prize element, then the edit icon to change it from text to an image, video, or HTML.
Clicking Customize in the left navigation will take you to the “builder”. Here you can you can add backgrounds, images, videos, and customize the campaign’s form and share dialogue. For tips and tricks on using the Customize section, check out our blog site.
You can switch between the pages you are customizing from the left navigation menu.
If your campaign is configured to start in the future, all users that visit the URL will be directed to the Pre-Start Page. Most admins use the default, “Please check back later. The promotion you are trying to access hasn’t started yet”, because often times campaigns are not promoted until they are ready to accept entries, so users generally never see the Pre-Start Page.
When you Enable the Fan-Gate, you can ask users to first like your Facebook Business Page before they enter the promotion (due to Facebook’s platform policies, you cannot require or incentivize this action).
By clicking Elements in the left navigation, you can add images, videos, text, or even design creative with the Canvas element.
You can add image elements to upload your creative content to any page of the campaign.
*Notice the “Now Editing: Version 1” in the upper right corner. Versions gives you the ability to upload and schedule different images in the same image element.
Customizing the Form Fields
While in the Customize section, click on the Form Fields element itself to add or edit form fields.
Click “Add Form Field” in the menu on the left to add text fields, drop-downs, radio buttons, check-boxes, and social media follow buttons.
Once a user has successfully entered, they will be directed to the Post Entry page. The Post Entry Page acts as confirmation that the user has successfully entered and gives users the opportunity to gain bonus entries for referrals (if enabled).
You can customize the share options by clicking on the Share Element.
Exit out of the Customize section and visit Sharing in the campaign’s main left navigation to customize the shared title, description, and/or image. *This will apply to Facebook, Twitter, and anywhere that recognizes open graph share dialogue.
Clicking Advanced then Rules will take you to the campaign’s rules section where you can paste or type in the official rules, or add a URL to link to the campaign’s rules.
Paste Official Rules (Windows-Ctrl V or Mac-Command V)
