Seventy-two percent of consumers will tell you their peers’ opinions influence their purchasing decisions far more than brands ever could, do, or will. ShortStack gives you powerful tools to collect genuine UGC using giveaways and contests. It’s easy.
You decide what information to collect from entrants and we’ll store it for you. Allow participants to submit photos from any device, and request their email addresses to grow your marketing list. Need more data? Choose from a variety of fields to include in your form to gather the information you need.
Video contest entries take more time for your fans to create so they tend to be more personal than any other type of contest entry. Because of this, videos elicit an emotional response from those who create them and those who view them — they make us laugh, they make us cry, they make us smile. Leverage this emotional connection to create a contest with truly unique UGC your company can share later on.
Do your customers love to post to social media? Allow them to submit photo and video entries by posting to Instagram with a hashtag. Or, collect email leads when participants upload their photos or videos to a form to enter.
Love taking photos with the face-in-a-hole cutout at your local orchard or sharing selfies with the doggie-face filter? So do your fans! Branded frames give your fans the opportunity to create images they love to share with their friends. This helps to raise brand awareness and attract even more visitors to your campaign. You can even send folks their submissions via email so they can save the images or share them far and wide!
Sometimes one photo just isn’t enough to tell a story. Expand the types of contests you can run by giving entrants the option to submit multiple images. For example, allow participants to upload two images for before and after contests. Give folks a chance to submit three or more images for a visual storytelling contest or as a way to show off their sweet car detailing or home improvement project.
UGC contests lend themselves to sharing. People want to show off the photos and videos they put time and effort into. Provide entrants with unique entry URLs and enable options to allow them to share their entries on social media. Motivate further sharing by encouraging entrants to collect votes to win the contest.
Repeat visits by voters serve to increase awareness of your brand. Add voting to your contest and give voters the chance to help determine the winner. Don’t want to use voting? No problem! You can use our Random Entry Picker to choose a winner.
Our Entries Manager makes managing and organizing UGC entries simple by displaying all of your entries at once. See all the submissions to your contests and lead-collection campaigns without needing to open individual lists. Use those entries to create beautiful, curated galleries for your campaign.
