How it Works
Login to your Woobox dashboard and select the “Posts” menu to pick your winner:
You will then see a list of your Facebook posts. Locate the post promotion that you want to select a winner for and click on the “Pick” link:
Next, click on “Pick A Winner”:
Your winner’s information will appear in the winners field. If you want to select multiple winners, simply click on “Pick A Winner” again. There is no limit to how many winners you can pick:
To activate the Prize Claim App, simply click “Activate”:
You can customize your prize claim form either by accessing it through the customization tool on the “Pick Winners” page:
Or via the “Prize Claims” tab in the dashboard:
In the edit view, you can name your Prize Claim form so that you can easily distinguish it from other prize claims you may be managing, and provide details on the prize that will be visible only to winners when they click on the app to validate their information. Place a time limit on how long winners have to claim their prize before it expires as a means of adding urgency to fan response time. You can add prize restrictions, and customize elements like fangates, winner gates, and thank you pages, just like many of the other Woobox tabs that you may currently already have:
You can also add fields to your claim form, by clicking on the “Form Fields” tab. The email field is added by default, and you can collect any other information you need to send the prize such as address, phone number, or age verification:
Use the share URL to post it on your timeline or website:
This is what the Prize Claim App form looks like to your fans, with a clock counting down the time remaining to claim their prize:
When the winner(s) click on their profile picture, they will be directed to the customized form where they provide contact and other required information to claim their prize:
And thanked for participating:
When winners claim their prize, the app will indicate they have done so by placing a “claimed” stamp over their profile photo:
If prizes go unclaimed, then an “Expired” stamp is automatically place over their profile photo:
As with all of our apps, you can customize the look with your own images and html. If prizes go unclaimed, you can select new winners and post a new Prize Claim form. Make sure you let your contest entrants know when they enter your promotion that you will be posting the winners on your page and when they will be announced. If you are clear in your promotion about when and how you will be announcing your winners, you will increase the visibility and claim rate of your prizes.
We look forward to hearing your success stories with our new Prize Claim app. The app is available on all Woobox pro plans starting as low as $1/month.
