“I knew using ShortStack would make setting up the giveaway entry form really easy. It took me less than 30 minutes to design and launch the app on my Facebook page.”
Kristina Allen, Lilypad Candles
Let your customers have a little fun. Ask them questions to reveal a personality outcome, but require them to submit their contact information before showing the results and you’ve got yourself another great, non-invasive way to collect leads.
Hashtag contests allow people to enter your contest simply by posting using your contest hashtag (and for Instagram, the profile @mention). ShortStack will gather all images, video, text and usernames, then you moderate and display the content, and use it in conjunction with our voting and sharing capabilities. The best part? People who participate in UGC campaigns are more likely to become customers.
Create a smooth transition between your ads or emails and your promotions. Give your audience a seamless experience and collect the specific contact information you need with a form, then keep the conversation going with marketing automation.
Instant win contests notify entrants after form submission if they won. Give away more than one prize or distribute unique coupon codes to each winner with our Prize Manager. Increase engagement by encouraging non-winners to try their luck again and asking winners to share your contest with their friends.
“During the 31 days the giveaway was live, more than 83,000 people entered on Instagram and Twitter; an additional 23,000 entered via the form on the microsite. We far surpassed the benchmarks we’d set.”
Sarah Todd-Evans, Social Media Manager, CLIA Global
Motivate people to purchase your product or service by giving them a discount, a free gift with purchase, or a code for free shipping. Collect valuable marketing data while you’re at it. They’ll always know when your next promotion will be and you’ll spread the word faster.
Encourage your contest participants to spread the word by providing them with a unique referral link they can share. Your customers get bonus entries as a reward, you get more and more participants who know your brand as a result.
With knowledge quizzes, visitors answer a series of questions, then they submit their email address to reveal their score. This allows you to educate your audience on your products and services at the same time you are collecting leads.
Help your customers stay in the loop on updates, events and announcements. Store their data and follow up with individual or bulk emails you can schedule and automate. All without leaving ShortStack and its built-in email marketing tools.
Use ShortStack to instantly pull in all of the comments on your Instagram or Facebook posts. Entries include the commenter’s username, their comment and a link to the comment. Use our random entry selector to choose a contest winner.
There’s no need to integrate with a separate email marketing platform. Send emails to the leads you have collected from your ShortStack campaigns, all in one place. Send automated emails instantly when someone fills out your form, and schedule emails to send on a later date.
