A sweepstakes is a great way to set up some competition among your community members and get more members to engage. It is also a useful tool when you are working with a limited budget, as it allows you offer one high value item as a reward rather than several smaller ones, stretching your budget farther and getting a great return in the process.
Steps to Create a Sweepstakes
Step 1: After logging in to your Mavrck account, navigate to the Campaigns tab.
Step 2:Click on the lightning bolt icon in the upper right corner to create a new activity.
Step 3: A pop up window will appear and you will be asked to provide some basic program information. Follow the prompts to create your activity.
Step 4: After completing all of the necessary fields, click “finish” to save and create your activity.
Step 5: This will automatically bring you to the Details page of this activity. From here you can add an inspirational image, create an incentive, set the details and dates for the program, including FTC configuration options, direct link access, and custom routing.
Step 6: An activity is made a sweepstakes by setting the incentive to sweepstakes. The incentive section can be found in the main detail section next to the image. Click “Add.”
Step 7: A pop up window will appear and will ask you to add an incentive or create a new one. Click “Create Incentive.”
Step 8: On the “Incentive Type” dropdown, select “Sweepstakes.”
Step 9: Then fill out the remaining fields, including the Terms and Conditions at the bottom of the window. Please note that all fields must be completed in order for the incentive to save.
Step 10: Click “Save.”
Once the above steps are completed...
The activity has now been set up as a sweepstakes. Set the program live by clicking “Ready” and then “Schedule” in the upper left corner, which will turn the activity live on the start date you identified. Keep in mind that incentives cannot be edited after a program is set live.
By law, the winner of a sweepstakes must be chosen at random. Remember to check in on the activity’s end date to see who won!
