How to run a Social Giveaway

Using Printfection's Social Giveaway platform you can easily give your swag to groups of followers, fans, or customers. A Printfection Social Giveaway provides you with one multi-redemption URL that can be distributed as many times as desired so your users can redeem free swag. To see how to setup and use a Social Giveaway follow the steps below.


Step 1

To get started you'll need to create a new Social Giveaway, which you can do by clicking on 'Campaign'  > 'Giveaway' > then the green box that says '+Giveaway Campaign'. 

When prompted, choose the 'Multi-use gift URL' option, as seen below:

Step 3

Go to 'Settings' in the navigation menu and update your company branding for your campaign. If needed you can also specify a payment method on this page.

Bonus: Drop-ins are something you can include on this page (drop-ins are small items that can be added into any shipment, such as stickers or a bottle opener). Your recipient won't know they are receiving this, so it can definitely add a surprise and delight factor to their experience of receiving the main item they selected!

Once your branding is set up you're ready to rock. Go to the 'Overview' option in the navigation you'll choose to '+ Add Gifts', you can now specify how many pieces of swag you want offer for redemption. 

 

Step 5

Turn the campaign from 'Paused' to 'Running' in the top right navigation menu. Now, you're ready to give some swag!

Step 6

You may now use the link provided at the top of the page to offer your free gifts. 

Once received each user that clicks on the link will be given 5 minutes to redeem their free gift.

Step 7

Once a redemption is complete you will have the option to cancel it from the 'Recipients & Redemption' section at the bottom of the 'Overview' page. Just use the 'Cancel' button next to the order.

Note: This cancelation option is only available until the order is processed, you'll want to review orders same-day or earlier if you want to cancel them.
