December 12, 2016 One Last Blast of Holiday Contest Ideas!
Are you thinking, “How is it mid-December already? I still have so much to do!” Well, if you haven’t gotten around to creating your holiday-themed Campaigns, now is the perfect time! We’re featuring four Campaigns this week, all of which will motivate you to finish 2016 with plenty of momentum for the new year!
ZuPreem’s Happy, Healthy, Holiday Sweepstakes Promotion
A “How much do you know?” quiz is a fun way to engage folks and inform them about your product at the same time. The “Happy, Healthy, Holiday” sweepstakes from ZuPreem masterfully integrates a quiz into the submission process. What’s even better? It doesn’t matter if users answer the questions correctly or not, they are still given the option to enter the sweepstakes, which reduces the chances that ZuPreem is missing out on potential leads.
LEARN – Use the Action Widget to show and hide various ShortStack Widgets after a form submission. If you want to create a quiz like ZuPreem’s, just create an individual form for each question, then add the answer to a hidden Rich Text Widget or Image Widget that is set to display after form submission.

Brighten Academy’s 12 Days of Christmas Calendar
I know last week was full of holiday calendars, but I just couldn’t resist adding another one. Brighten Academy’s “12 Days of Christmas” calendar does a great job at tweaking the template to fit their needs. Beyond adding images to each day by following hack one in our Calendar hacks blog post, they just updated the background and added some images to Image Widgets on their Campaign to fit their branding. Done and done!
Australian Laser & Skin Clinics’ Christmas Giveaway
Short on time? A sweepstakes is an effective way to collect information from your users, but super easy to setup! Australian Laser & Skin Clinics did a wonderful job of branding their contest, while keeping the design straightforward for their users - submit an entry and you’re eligible to win. Here’s to keeping things simple and stress-free!
TIP - Use our new autoresponder tool to send users an email confirming their entry.
HOLIDAY BONUS: The Charming Squire’s NYE Competition
Description: Don’t forget to ring in the new year with a new Campaign! I love what The Charming Squire did with their NYE competition. Users are given the chance to win tickets to their New Year’s Eve party, complete with food and champagne! This type of Campaign is great for businesses like night clubs, restaurants and bars.
IDEA - Follow Night Fever Night Club’s lead and create a table reservation Campaign. Use our Restaurant Reservations template to get started quickly.
