Social sharing helps your contest and content go viral.
You’ve heard the saying, “word of mouth is the best form of marketing“.
Content shared on social media greatly improves your reach that’s why we’ve created Viral Share Entry. Viral Share entry is a powerful addition to any contest because it adds incentive for your audience to spread the word for you.
“Ask your contestants to share your contest across multiple social networks to improve their odds of winning – we’ll keep track of all the entries for you.”
How viral share entry works
We create a unique tracking link for everyone who visits your contest. When new people visit your contest from the tracking link we keep track of them. When new people enter the contest we give the person who shared the link extra entries into your contest improving their odds of winning.
