Run and manage Instagram contests instantly and effortlessly

Use an Instagram contest to collect and display user-generated content (UGC), interact with your followers and increase your brand’s exposure.

Utilize branded hashtags for contest entries

Allow fans to submit to your contest without ever leaving Instagram. Simply ask entrants to post to Instagram and include both your unique contest hashtag and the @mention of your Instagram business profile, and those posts will be collected in ShortStack as entries. Every post will spread your unique hashtag and your Instagram profile via an @mention, increasing your brand’s exposure.

Collect comments as entries and randomly choose winners

Use ShortStack to instantly pull in all of the comments made on your Instagram posts. Comment entries include the commenter’s username, the comment they left and a link to the comment. Use our random entry selector to draw one or multiple winners, then announce the winners on your Instagram profile.

Use forms to collect submissions

People can enter your user-generated content contest by uploading their Instagram photos via customizable forms. Increase your data collection and entries by using ShortStack’s Refer-a-friend, encouraging shares, and by utilizing email marketing to grow your followers.
