Our hashtag entry feature has now been added to the Business plan. On the Business plan you can track (1) hashtag on both Twitter and Instagram, and collect entries/media submitted by users posting that hashtag.

The limits on our Premium plan remain the same, you can track up to (3) hashtags at one time.

Coupon Action

We've just rolled out a new Coupon Action that you can add to your promotion under Social Actions > Coupons.

We support providing users with both static coupons (one coupon code for everyone) and dynamic coupons (upload a CSV file that distributes a unique code to everyone).

You can provide users with a coupon as soon as they enter your promotion, all they need to do is click on the coupon to unlock it.

You can also require users to complete a certain amount of actions before they can unlock their coupon.

Comments App Now Supports YouTube

Our comments app now provides support for YouTube comments, in addition to Facebook and Instagram post comments.

Simply login to your YouTube account via the Social Comments app, choose the video to connect to the campaign, and we will import all of the video comments. From there, you can randomly draw a winner.

Multiple Contest Submissions

We've updated our contest app to now support having one user submit multiple photos or videos into a contest, with a maximum limit of 5.

Previously it was one photo or video per submission or per day, but based on overwhelming user feedback, we've implemented the ability to have multiple photo or video submissions at one time.

With that said, we've improved the submission process and made several updates to the user experience, including image previews after an image has been uploaded:

Custom Actions

After countless requests over the years, we've finally released support for custom actions.

With custom actions, you can track anything you want across your website, and reward users for completing those actions.

Some common actions you can track:

  • Signing up for an account

  • Purchasing a product

  • Filling out a form

  • Interacting with certain elements on a page

  • Visiting a page

  • Adding a product to a cart or wishlist

  • Scheduling a call or demo

  • Starting a trial

  • Initiating a search

Each time you add a custom action, we provide a tracking script you must use in order for us to track the completion of that action. Once the action is completed, we will automatically award points to the user for completing it.

Hashtag Changes

We've updated our hashtag feature to pull in all content with a particular hashtag, including content submitted multiple times by the same user. Previously, if a user made 20 submissions on Instagram or Twitter with the same hashtag, we only ever pulled in the first one, this way things were fair for everyone who entered.

However, after some feedback, we've removed this limitation and will now pull in all submissions, including duplicate submissions from the same entrant. Within the moderation panel you can choose to approve or deny specific submissions.

Rare.io Email Integration

We're now integrated with Rare.io. You can connect your campaigns directly to your Rare.io account and pass through user information to any Rare.io list.
