It’s no surprise that coupons continue to be one of our most popular promotional tools – after all, we launched Woobox with coupons as our first app. Since then we’ve grown to include a much broader suite of promotional tools, but coupons remain popular. There are a wide variety of uses for coupons, from free offers to loyalty rewards, to feel-good perks. Check out these 6 effective coupon strategies that have proven successful time and time again:
While creating a custom graphic for your contest or promotion is not a requirement to launch a Woobox campaign, it does make for a more visually compelling promotion – and can lend excitement to your campaign! You don’t have to be a graphic designer to create a campaign that is graphically stimulating, you just need to know where to look for images and how to put the pieces together.
Woobox’s hashtag entry for Facebook allows you to accept photo contest submissions posted directly to your timeline! Simply supply your fans with a hashtag that is specific to your brand and promotion, and then ask them to post a photo on your Facebook page’s timeline with the hashtag in the message. The entry will be tracked and added to the contest automatically!
Woobox has added new tweet & follow elements for entry forms that allow you to require entrants to tweet or follow your Twitter handle in order to participate in the promotion – or include as an optional source for bonus entries. The best part is, unlike our old options, the Twitter app authorization dialog is now optional but the requirement to tweet or follow can still be verified. It is now easier than ever to grow your Twitter following, increase your brand presence, and improve the viral nature of Twitter promotions!
Auto dealers made the concept popular in the real world, and now Woobox has brought the endurance contest to the virtual world with Touchscreen Endurance Challenges!
Inspired by the popular real-world contest that requires participants to maintain continual contact with a product (usually a car) for a chance to win, this last-man-standing contest pits participants against one another to see who can outlast the competition.
