Our developers are at it again. We surveyed our customers to see what sort of features they would like added, and this is what you, our customers, decided on.
Many of our customers often run “Facebook Giveaways” for their subscribers. They make a post offering to give something away, and then randomly select a winner from all the comments.
We’ve automated this process for you, and included it in your Mobile Text Alerts account!
Here’s how it works.
On Facebook, create a post announcing the giveaway. Make sure you write #giveaway in the post somewhere. This lets our system know that this is a giveaway. If you would like, you can create this post from your Mobile Text Alerts send message page.
Wait until the contest is over
Go to the ‘Giveaways’ page, and click ‘Find Giveaways’ to search that page for any posts with #giveaway
Once your giveaway is found, click ‘Select Winner’ for one of the commenters to be randomly selected as the winner
Announce the winner on your Facebook page!
Hopefully this makes your life just a little bit easier!
Please leave any feedback or suggestions on ways to improve this feature, or ideas for new features in the future.
