Here is a step by step setup guide to help you create, edit, customize, and go live with your Sweepstakes in just a few short minutes.
Create a Sweepstakes
From the Campaigns screen, select the template type – Landing Pages.
Then choose Sweepstakes from the campaign types.
After selecting Sweepstakes, you’ll be taken to the Design tab where you can add backgrounds, images, videos, and customize the campaign’s Form Element.
Give your Sweepstakes a title by clicking on “Untitled Sweepstakes” above the URL.
You can switch between the Entry and Submitted pages by clicking on those options in the top left.
By clicking Add New Element in the left navigation, you can add images, videos, text, and more.
Clicking directly on an existing element allows you to edit that element.
Click the “Painter’s Palette” icon to set a theme, background, and other styling options.
Customizing the Form Fields
While in the Design section, click on the Form element itself, or the Form Fields area in the left sidebar, then click Add Form Field to add fields. Click directly on an existing field to edit that specific field.
Once a user has successfully entered, they will be directed to the Submitted page. This page acts as confirmation that the user has successfully entered. Be sure to customize your post-entry message and add a share element to encourage sharing.
The Overview section is where you can edit basic settings and view or download stats.
Click the Edit button above the Status section to set the start and end dates of the experience’s entry period.
Select the dates and times, then click Save.
Click Edit above the Sharing section to customize the sharing image, title, and description for your experience URL.
Once your experience receives views or entries, you can view a graph of these stats for the past past week, past month, or past year. Click Download Performance Stats to export a detailed traffic stat CSV file.
In the Participants tab, you can view entry data for the first 1,000 entries, pick winners, and download your Entries and Uploads exports.
Click Download to open the Exports panel
Click Pick Winner to randomly select one or more winners
Under the Settings tab, enable entry restrictions and limits, bonus entries for referrals, and age or password restrictions in the Limits & Restrictions section.
In the Customizations section, you can customize all of the default language and auto-emails for your Sweepstakes, and add your custom rules HTML or link.
In the Advanced section, you can setup real-time integration for Automatic Exports, Facebook and Google Tracking, or enable Kiosk Mode for on-site campaigns.
At the bottom of the Settings page, you can Reset, Copy, or Delete your Sweepstakes.
Preview and Publish
When you’re ready, go back to the Overview tab and test/preview your contest by clicking the experience URL under Installation.
Click Preview to redirect the URL to an embed on your website.
Click Install on Facebook to install a Facebook Tab for your experience.
To turn off Admin-Only mode and publish your experience, click the Publish button in the Status area.
The Sweepstakes experience is now eligible for the Free plan! You can publish your campaign for 14 days or up to 100 participants (per calendar month) without upgrading. To continue your campaign and collect more data, simply upgrade to a paid plan.
