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).

Customizing the Prize pages:

From the Voucher page 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.
