With Cool Tabs, you have the possibility to display the results of your sweepstakes with a video showing the title of the sweepstakes, the prizes, and the winners/alternate winners.
In addition, you can download the video in different formats (for YouTube, Facebook, Instagram feed, Stories…) and publish it wherever you need.
Displaying the result of your sweepstakes with a winners video like this one will make the process much more transparent.
Check out this demo to see the result of a winners video.
2. Step by step.
2.1. How to configure your campaign, sweepstakes or contest with Cool Tabs.
The first step to show the result of your sweepstakes is to have configured a campaign or a sweepstake within your Cool Tabs account.
If you haven't created your campaign or sweepstakes yet, to select the winner, you can follow our tutorials: See all our tutorials.
2.2. How to select winners.
Once the sweepstakes or campaign has been configured, the participants have been collected, and the participation period has ended, it is time to choose the winners.
To access this section, you must go to the 'Leads' section.
If you have created a sweepstake with one of our sweepstakes apps, you can directly access to the 'Winners' section.
To select winners, you can follow the tutorial: How to select winners and obtain your certificate of validity.
2.3. How to generate the video.
After finalizing the selection of winners, a video with the result will be generated.
In the 'Winners' section, below the URL to the winners' page, you will find the link to the winners' video.
2.4. How to edit the video.
You can edit and customize some elements of your video: title, button text, loading page title, loading percentage text, colors, and/or add a logo. Click on the 'Edit' button to make changes.
Once the modifications have been made, save the changes.
2.5. How to download and publish the video.
Don't forget to set the video in public mode (as shown in the image) so that it will be visible when you publish it.
In addition to publishing it via URL, you have the option to download it for the desktop format, square format or vertical format.
- Desktop format (1920×1080px): recommended for Facebook or Twitter wall/profile posts.
- Mobile format (1080×1920px): recommended for Stories on Instagram and/or Facebook.
- Square format (1080×1080px): recommended for Instagram feed.
The video will be sent to the email address associated with your Cool Tabs account.
3. Other specifications.
Due to the limited space available when generating the videos (they are fixed-size files), only up to 4 groups of winners will be displayed correctly, with a maximum of 8 winners and 8 reservations for each group.
