Once you have ascertained the prizewinners of the promotion, whether via the Easypromos sweepstakes platform or by selecting them manually with a jury, the next step is to make the results of the sweepstakes public.
To do this, the platform provides a template which you can use to publish the prizewinners easily. This template is a webpage with a unique link that you can share on your social networks and use to create a direct access from the homepage of your promotion.
Below we explain how to set up and publish the Winners Page template:
Step 1. Access the Winners Page
Access the administration page of the promotion and click on Editor:
Once in the Editor, go to Edit > Winners Page:
Step 2. Select the screen for publishing prizewinners
Once you are inside the Editor of the Winners Page you can select “What content do I want to display?” from the dropdown menu. Select the template that you wish to use to publish your winners.
There are 4 types of templates from which to choose. We outline these below:
"No Winners Yet” Template
This template is used to inform participants that the sweepstakes has finished but that the winners have yet to be selected. You can indicate information, such as the date that prizewinners will be announced and the method you will use to contact them.
Customizable Winners Template
This template can be used to announce the manually-chosen winners of a sweepstakes. You have the option of automatically displaying or hiding the winners and alternates by checking the corresponding box.
Redirect to an External Website
This template is used to redirect users to an external website, including a link to a webpage where they can see the prizewinners.
Sweepstakes Winners Template
This template enables you to publish the results of the sweepstakes carried out with the Easypromos sweepstakes tool inside the promotion. If you have carried out a number of sweepstakes, the template will enable you to display the list of all the sweepstakes you have carried out.
For each page you can upload your own chosen image and change the title and the description text to suit your preferences. The pages you can customize are as follows:
- Individual page for each sweepstakes: you can edit a different page for each of the sweepstakes that you have carried out. This will enable you to display the lists of prizewinners and alternates, as well as the certificate of validity for each sweepstakes. Click on the pencil that appears beside each individual sweepstakes on the left in order to edit the corresponding Winners Page.
- Page with the list of all the sweepstakes carried out. This page will display a list with the different sweepstakes carried out in your promotion. When users click on the “View” option in the Winners Page the individual page of the selected sweepstakes will open.
Step 3. Publish the prizewinners
Once you have decided which of the four template options you would like to display, all you need to do is publish the winners by clicking on the ‘Publish Winners’ button at the top left of the screen:
Once this action is complete you can copy the URL of the page and share it on your social networks:
Finally, remember that you can unpublish this page whenever you like. For example, if you have used the “No Winners Yet” template, you can substitute it later for the final Winners Page.
