The Multiplatform Sweepstake app allows you to launch a draw among participants of several draws that you have launched in different social networks. This way, you can unify participants and select a single winner or winners.
You can realize a multiplatform sweepstakes with all the dynamics supported with Cool Tabs: sweepstakes on different social networks (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter), gamification campaigns to attract qualified leads (with a data form) or draws from an Excel random list.
2. Step by step.
Keep in mind that the process to use this application and select a winner is as follows:
- Publish the sweepstakes in your social networks.
- Create these sweepstakes independently in your Cool Tabs account.
- Use the Multiplatform Sweepstakes app to collect all participants and make the winner selection. We will explain it below.
2.1. Create your sweepstake.
To use this app, you have to have already created the draws or campaigns you want to collect participantes in your Cool Tabs account. If this is not your case, first of all, create those sweepstakes in Cool Tabs. You can follow the next tutorials:

2.2. Select the campaigns you want to combine for the draw.
Name your sweepstake so you can identify it in your campaigns list.
Select the sweepstakes or campaigns you want to include in your multi-platform draw.
If there are campaigns that don't appear on the list, click on 'Load more campaigns'.
2.3. Winners selection.
Once you've save your campaing, the next screen will be the list of participations. In this section you can see the total of publications, the ones that have been published, the pending ones (in case of needing validation) and the unpublished participations.
To select the winners, go to the 'Winners' section.
In this screen you can filter the dates in which you want to select winners. In addition, you can exclude winners of previous contests or users that you have in your lists of prohibited emails / nicks.
Once you've chosen the winner/s, you'll get a link to a public winner's page, so you can share the results with all your followers.
