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

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

Prefill email addresses via your email service

We've just rolled out a new feature that will now allow you to easily prefill the email address of users who are already on your email list. This will help to increase conversion rates, as users no longer need to fill out the email field if you already have their email.

This requires no code, no developers, and can easily be done right from within the email marketing service or CRM that you already use. We've even provided a full list of how to do this with every single integration we support.

Learn more: Prefill Email Address

If you want to prefill more than just email address, please look at our: Prefill Fields Documentation.

Collecting Payments Design Changes

We've updated our payments integration to use an inline payment form, instead of the default Stripe checkout form. Users will no longer see a payment box popup after filling out the form, but rather, they will be able to fill in their card information inline with the rest of the fields on the entry form.

Referral Prize Editing, Previewing, and Duplicating

We've updated our Referrals app to now allow you to edit prizes, preview them, and duplicate them. Previously, you could not edit a prize once it was saved, and you could only preview it by entering through the entry form. You also could not duplicate a prize.

You will see these settings located at the bottom of each Referral prize you create.

Partner Network is Live

Today we're sharing some exciting news: the Partner Network is live.

We introduced the Partner Network over a year ago as a simple place for ViralSweep customers to find and communicate with one another. If you found a brand you wanted to work with, you could message them through our messaging system to work out the details. That was it, simple and to the point.

Today, we're re-launching the Partner Network, and there is a whole lot more than just messaging!

Check out this quick overview video, or learn more below.

Hosting Campaigns

Brands can now host campaigns and invite partners directly to that campaign—even brands who are not ViralSweep customers. Brands you invite can be allowed (or not allowed) to access entries, edit the campaign, access analytics, and access the winners.

You can invite brands to your campaign straight from the Partner Network, or you can send out email invites from ViralSweep. A brand is not required to be a paying customer to be invited to your campaign, nor do they need to be part of ViralSweep for you to provide them with a tracking link.

Brands on our Business or Premium plan can host campaigns.

Campaign Opportunities

If you are hosting a campaign, you can open your campaign up to other brands via the Opportunities section of the Partner Network with the click of a button. You will receive requests to join from brands on the network saying what they can contribute. If you accept their request, you will be able to set permissions for that brand before they are granted access to the campaign in their own dashboard.

Joining Campaigns

We've made joining campaigns very easy. Find and join campaigns within the Opportunities section of the Partner Network, or join via a direct invite from a campaign host.

Beautiful Profiles

Every brand in the Partner Network now has a beautiful profile. We've already hand-crafted a profile for almost every brand currently in the network.

Your profile displays information about your company, email list size, industry, location, and social profiles.

This is just the beginning for profiles. Over time we will be adding more information to help you make more informed decisions about who you want to work with. In addition, profiles will also receive a Verified By ViralSweep badge so that you know you're working with trusted brands.

As of today, many profiles need to be updated. We've taken the liberty of going through and manually updating most profiles with logos and images, but we encourage you to login and edit your profile to ensure it is up to date.

Messaging

We've completely overhauled our messaging system to make it super easy to communicate with brands, share files, and even create group messages with partners. We've reduced the clutter, streamlined the look and feel of the messaging system, and improved the notification system so that you won't miss any messages you receive.

Instant Win Prize Editing, Previewing, and Duplicating

We've updated our Instant Win system to now allow you to edit prizes, preview them, and duplicate them. Previously, you could not edit a prize once it was saved, and you could only preview it by entering through the entry form. You also could not duplicate a prize.

We understood this was a major headache to setting up an Instant Win, and now you are able to save a prize, edit it, preview it, and even duplicate it.

You still cannot edit the prize settings once it is saved (odds or number of winners) but all of the content for that prize can be edited. If you make a mistake, you can now easily duplicate a prize to start a new one.

You will see these settings located at the bottom of each Instant Win prize you create.
