3. Text configuration

Most users access promotions on their mobile phone. Here are the most common ways to participate in online promotions:

  • links in social newsfeeds, such as the Facebook app
  • sharing on Facebook or Whatsapp
  • email newsletters
  • ads
  • brand websites

Wherever you share your promotion, you must include 3 essential pieces of information: the prize, the closing date of the contest, and the rules for participation. And if you share this information in your social posts, emails, and ads, then you can keep the actual promotion design much cleaner and simpler.

In Easypromos promotion templates, the information on each page has been simplified, and call to action buttons stand out more. You can even choose to disable the introductory page of the promotion and take users directly to the registration form.

4. Full and customization

We designed the promotion templates in line with our philosophy: finding the balance between flexibility and accessibility. That’s why we’ve added even more design options, without any need for programming, HTML or CSS coding skills.

To facilitate the promotion customization process, the editor allows you to view your design changes in real-time and on the same screen.

In the process of creating the templates, our clients’ feedback about the design has always been kept in mind. That’s why the design, the structure of the styles and the tools that we offer are sufficiently flexible so that a front-end programmer can program almost 100% of most of the designs to fit the design that their designers have developed.

6. Reliability

The success of a promotion depends on many factors: a good prize, smart publicity, and an intriguing design. But all of that depends on an app that works.

That’s why we dedicated 9 months to developing and launching the Design template. Every element has been meticulously tested for every web browser, mobile device, and social network.

Some of our clients have already accessed the Design template during its soft launch. Today, we can share the template with all our clients, secure in the knowledge that it is 100% reliable.
