Facebook + ShortStack

Run a Facebook contest on your Timeline, asking your fans to caption a photo for a chance to win. Give them more chances to win if they enter again via the Facebook app you built using ShortStack. Then use ShortStack’s unique functions to collect data from your Timeline contest — for example, photos, Likes and comments — and to prevent contest fraud.

Action-gate your entry form

Use an action-gate


Action-gating is a function that lets you ask users to do something – in this example, vote – in order to gain access to your entry form.

Prevent voting fraud

Use voting and entry restrictions


Limit users to one vote or entry per 24 hours, or one vote or entry per timeframe set by you.

Learn how a business that had been on Facebook for two years grew their fanbase by 200% – in three weeks.
Encourage social sharing

Increase engagement with social media share buttons


Use ShortStack’s Share Widget so your fans can share your Campaign on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.

Import Likes and Comment from Facebook

Have complete control over your contest


Using ShortStack’s Comment/Like Importer tool, you can import Comments and Likes directly from Facebook posts. You can also award fans extra points as incentive.

Your Campaign can live on Facebook and the Web

Publish as a Facebook app


With ShortStack, you can publish Campaigns directly to Facebook, to the Web, or both (our recommendation).

Promote your Campaign link in your post

Host a Timeline contest


Post a status update asking your fans to write a caption for your photo in order to enter your contest. Include a link to your campaign and ask your fans to visit your Facebook app where you can collect contact and other demographic information, and they can have more chances to win.
