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: A giveaway in contest mode gives your users a chance to earn the winning spot by referring other users and encouraging them to participate in your contest. During contest campaign mode, each user gets a unique link that they can share on social media to earn points. Each participant can see where they stand in the leaderboard, and you can reward the user(s) with the most points.

2. Random Mode: A giveaway in random mode implies you are expected to choose the winner(s) on any basis that you like, whether random selection or task-based. During random campaign mode, users are expected to just fill in their personal information as per their specified requirements from the lead generation form. You can redirect the users to any URL after they have successfully entered the giveaway.
