Blacklist/Whitelist IP Addresses

ip.jpg

Building on top of the Blacklist/Whitelist Email Domains feature we rolled out a few weeks ago, we've now added the ability to Blacklist/White IP Addresses too.

Blacklist: The blacklist option is to be used to block specific IP Addresses from entering your campaign, and allow all other IP Addresses to enter.

Whitelist: The whitelist option is to be used to allow specific IP Addresses to enter your campaign, and block all other IP Addresses from entering. For example, if you are running a company wide promotion and you only want employees entering while at work, then you would input your company IP Address into the whitelist. The campaign would then only be accessible to those on that IP Address.

Geo Targeting by State and Province

We've just expanded the capabilities of our Geo Targeting feature to now support targeting by states in the United States, as well as by Provinces/Territories in Canada, in addition to targeting by country which we've always offered.

To access this feature, look for the Geo Targeting section on your campaign. Screen Shot 2018-10-12 at 6.06.14 AM.png

We've also included an Allow IP Addresses field, which can be helpful if you're using state/province geo targeting and someone is unable to enter because their IP Address or ISP is showing as being in another state or province. Once you add the users IP address to this field, they will be able to enter.

Facebook Send To Messenger Action

We've introduced a new Facebook action that will allow you to grow your messenger subscribers list by having people subscribe via Facebook Messenger. You can then use a service like ManyChat or ChatFuel to manage your Facebook Messenger marketing.

How It Works

Users enter your campaign and then complete actions to earn more entries. To subscribe on messenger, it takes just two clicks.

An immediate message is also sent to the user when they subscribe, which you can configure in ViralSweep:

Facebook Lead Ads Analytics

If you're using our Facebook Lead Ads integration, you can now see the number of entries that came via Lead Ads under Analytics > Entries.

Please note: If you are using our Facebook Lead Ads integration, we utilize the newsletter subscribers checkbox in the background to opt users into the campaign. This means that if you are using the integration, then your analytics will also show the Newsletter Subscribers stat which will be equal to the number of leads that came through Facebook Lead Ads.

Instagram Visit Post Action

We've introduced a new Instagram action where you can embed your posts into a campaign and incentivize users with points for visiting those posts. Here is how it will appear as an action on your campaign:

The points are awarded when a user taps on the post. The action can be found under Social Actions > Instagram > Visit Post.

Blacklist/Whitelist Email Domains

We've rolled out a new feature for Business and Premium Plan users that will allow you to blacklist or whitelist email domains.

Blacklist: The blacklist option is to be used to block specific domains from entering your campaign, and allow all other domains to enter. For example, if you want to prevent people from entering using mailinator.com addresses, you can add that domain to the blacklist.

Whitelist: The whitelist option is to be used to allow specific domains to enter your campaign, and block all other domains from entering. For example, if you are running a company wide promotion and you only want employees with your company email address to enter, then you would input your company domain into the whitelist.

Duplicating Campaigns in Multiple Languages

We've pushed out an update that will now allow you to duplicate campaigns that have multiple language variations attached to them, and the language variations will carry over to the duplicated campaign.

There are still two caveats to this that have always been in place:

  • You cannot add or remove form fields after a language variation has been added to a campaign (you must delete the language variation first and edit the main campaign, then add the language variation back)

  • You cannot add or remove social actions after a language variation has been added to a campaign (you must delete the language variation first and edit the main campaign, then add the language variation back)

Hire Influencers From The Network

We've now rolled out the ability to hire influencers for your campaigns right through the Network tab in your dashboard.

Through our Promote feature you've always been able to hire influencers to help promote your campaigns, but the influencers would always come to you after you submitted a campaign brief — you've never had the ability to look through influencers, until today.

With the latest release, you can now look through all the influencers in our network and invite any influencers you would like directly to your campaign. If the influencer accepts, you'll receive a proposal of what they'll do and how much they'll charge, and you can choose to hire them from there.

Install Gallery To Facebook

We've updated our Facebook install option which will now allow you to install your contest galleries directly to a Facebook page tab.

Entry Code Bonus Entries

entrycodes.jpg

We've added a new feature that will allow you to award users with bonus entries for inputting special codes you provide them with.

This feature is built on top of our already existing Entry Codes feature, which requires users to input a code to enter the promotion.

You can do three things with this new feature:

1) Use the entry codes feature on the entry form and upload a file of codes, then tie that file to the entry codes feature for bonus entries. This will allow someone to enter the promotion with a valid code, and then continue to earn more entries for inputting more valid codes.

2) Upload a file of codes for bonus entries only. Allow users to enter your promotion without a code, then be able to earn bonus entries for inputting valid codes.

3) Upload a file of codes to be used just for entering the promotion, and upload a separate file of codes to be used just for earning bonus entries.

Features

  • Multi-use or one-time use codes
  • Award any number of entries for entering a valid code
  • Set a limit on the number of codes a user can enter, or let them input unlimited codes
