Check out more details on some best practices any brand can incorporate into their next sweepstakes to optimize for engagement and virality.
- There’s nothing wrong with the simple life. The Château Gaby team opted for a simple sign-up form with key fields included to collect entries. Sometimes keeping a campaign simple is the best way to increase and encourage engagement. A complicated entry process can lead to decreased engagement and incorrect submissions.
- Leverage your heritage. Fans want to engage with brands and experiences that have heart. Leveraging your brand’s heritage is a great way to communicate who your brand is, and why consumers should believe and come on board with you.
- Take advantage of improved forms. While a Form component might seem fairly straightforward, our development teams have worked to increase the sophistication of Wyng forms, while keeping our forms easy to use and implement. A form is often the backbone of a campaign, capturing valuable data for integration into a CRM or ESP, and having a well-designed form is essential for meeting specific configuration options in order to meet brand or legal requirements.
