You may have heard the expression, “word of mouth is the best form of marketing.” We couldn’t agree more. When people share through social networks, it’s powerful. And, if the word spreads from friend to friend you now have virality, which is why we’ve created the ‘viral share’ entry method. This small addition to your contest is easily the best marketing strategy for contests; it will boost multiple marketing channels and possibly make your contest go viral.
“Simply ask your contestants to share your contest across multiple social networks to be entered to win – we’ll keep track of all the entries for you.”
Contests are totally customizable with the ability to add or remove elements and to easily change colors or fonts.contest

Viral share entry FAQs
- How are entries counted?
We create a custom tracking link for every contestant. When people click through from the custom link we record it. If the person who clicks through from the custom link enters your contest the person who shared the link will receive entries.
- Can I customize which services the link gets shared on?
Absolutely, you can specify which sharing buttons are available for the contestant. We provide a copy / paste button for the link that allows contestants to share anywhere they like.
- If I embed the contest into my website will it share the hosted contest page or my website?
If your contest is embedded we will direct the link to go back to your page, and not our hosted URL.
