How Salons can use Social Rewards & Giveaways
Giveaway – entries into a Prize Draw/Raffle
A one-time promotional giveaway widget that encourages your users to spread the word about your site in exchange for entries into a prize raffle.
What it is – This tool allows you to offer a Prize drawn by raffle. Each social “activity” gives them extra entries into the raffle and increases their chance of winning.
How it is created – You build the Giveway using an admin tool that defines the prize, any terms, the end date and also what activities earn an entry into the draw.
How it is promoted – You first create a page on your salon website that will contain the Giveaway – like this one. You can add images and text to the page – either to show the prize or to give clear instructions. The Giveaway tool is then displayed using a small widget box that handles all entries.
How people enroll – Entrants sign-up using Facebook or using their email address. A simple one click to enter and give permission to access their facebook info.

At the end of a time period that you set the giveaway will end; the system will then let you choose a winner at random and contact them by email. You can choose more than one winner.
