Creating Giveaways using Outgrow

Using Outgrow, you can now create Giveaways to encourage users to join a contest that you will be running for your customers, employees, etc. By going through this document, you can learn more about how to create Giveaways in Outgrow.

Types of Campaign Modes

There are 2 types of campaign modes available in Outgrow that you can choose from. The campaign modes are:

1. Contest Mode: Hosting a giveaway in contest mode is a great way to engage your users and encourage them to participate in your contest. By sharing a unique link on social media, each user can earn points and move up in the leaderboard. This helps them keep track of their progress and motivates them to refer other users to participate in the contest. At the end of the campaign, you can reward the user(s) with the most points.

2. Random Mode: During a giveaway in random mode, the winner(s) can be chosen by any method, whether it is random selection or task-based. During the random campaign mode, users are only required to fill in their personal information according to the specific requirements mentioned in the lead generation form. Once the users have successfully entered the giveaway, you can redirect them to any URL of your choice.
