No matter you are giving a gift card or coupons, products or event tickets, giveaways are always cool. Well, we all like free stuff, don’t we? That’s why an online sweepstakes can be a great way to achieve better social media presence for your brand and to improve your fans’ engagement.
The strategy you plan for your giveaways plays an important role. But, no matter what your strategy is, you should try to keep your contest simple. Too many entry options, confusing or complicated tasks can bury your contest even if you have awesome prizes. Your entry options should be simple and it should be always obvious and clear how people can participate and how they are rewarded.
There are several online apps or tools that can help you to organize a social media giveaway. Some of them, like a giveaway tool Socialman, let their users run giveaways on social media channels with no coding required.
Socialman is a DIY tool and requires no programming skill. It works on all major media platforms, from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram to gaming community platforms like Twitch, Steam, and Discord. Its interface gives you everything you need to create and run your contest. You can set up your and customize the contest using it; the app will do the rest. It will host your giveaway and provide you with the random selection of winners. In the app dashboard, you will be able to add your prizes with images, choose your language, define entry options, and add terms and conditions and many more.
Ready to launch giveaway can be placed as a widget on your website, posted as a link on your social media profile or even installed as a new tab on your Facebook page. Additionally, the app offers a WordPress plugin that can be used for installing your contest widget directly on your website or blog, with a simple shortcode.
Socialman offers a free account for its basic functionality, plus two paid subscription plans. Each plan has a different set of entry options you can use in your contest. Unlike most of the other similar tools, there are no limits concerning the number of giveaways or the number of participants. One of the app’s most interesting elements are the optional statistical features that become relevant in the Pro plan. If you are tech savvy you can benefit from advanced analytics and plan your marketing strategy in a more professional way.
