Would you like to embed the promotion into your website or blog? Would you like your users to enter the contest directly from your microsite? Or do you simply wish to give your campaign more visibility and diffusion out of social media channels? We introduce you to the Easypromos widgets, which enable you to embed and display the promotion on any website, blog or online store, and let users register directly from there.
One of the main steps when launching a promotion is to publicise it as much as possible, so the maximum number of users can register. Facebook and Instagram ads, spreading the word on other social media channels and newsletters are some of the techniques to increase traffic to your promotion. In this post we will talk about a new diffusion tool: Easypromos widgets.
You can now take advantage of your own website or blog to give your promotion more visibility and attract new users. Widgets are installed in a website and allow visitors to enter the promotion directly from there, with no need to go through any other social media channels. The user experience will be exactly the same as if they were participating from Facebook or Instagram.
Widgets are available for all promotions created with Easypromos, regardless of the version used – Basic, Premium or White Label – and work for any type of promotion or contest.
You can customise the widget dimensions according to the width and height that interests you. The promotion will adapt perfectly to the available space, always offering an optimal view thanks to its responsive functionality. Therefore, no matter if you embed a 2048px or a 240px width widget, the promotion will always display correctly.
There’s no need to upload specific creativities for the widgets, the platform will adapt the promotion images to any widget size.
There are 4 Widgets available to use:
Widget 1: Embed your promotion
This widget enables you to embed the promotion on any website. This way, the whole participation process takes place within the same widget (registering, voting for participants, sharing the contest and inviting friends).
The application offers the possibility to customise the widget dimensions, adjusting the widget to the available space in your website.

Widget 2: Widget Popup
This widget, which can be installed on any web page, blog or online store, is installed as a pop up window. You can choose how many seconds must pass before presenting the user with the pop up. There is also an option to choose how frequently you want to display the promotion. It appears on a semi-transparent black layer and the user can participate directly for there.
The widget will also adapt to mobile phones. The pop up will be displayed on full screen with a cross at the top on the right hand, allowing the user to close it at any time.
