Frequently asked questions
Can I run a contest where I upload the photos and the users only vote?
Yes, it's possible. For this type of contest, we have the app called Pick your Favorite, and there are two different formats to choose from depending on the needs. https://www.easypromosapp.com/blog/en/2015/05/which-type-of-pick-your-favorite-contest-is-right-for-me/
How can I know if a user has used bad practices to obtain votes?
Easypromos offers an anti-fraud system that monitors all the votes received in contests, and all votes that trigger a security alarm, are considered invalid. All votes are registered so the organizers can review them, and they will have a fraud index available for them to evaluate each user.
Does the system generate a certificate that indicates if a user has obtained votes using fraudulent measures?
Yes. When the voting period finalizes, the fraud index for each participating user is calculated, and a certificate of the vote activity is created which can be shared publically with a URL.
When does Easypromos consider a participation as not valid?
Easypromos considers a participation as not valid when its fraud index is more than 100%.
What type of UGC can you obtain through contests?
The most common content generated by the users or customers are photos, videos or written pieces. But you can also go for a co-creation dynamic where the users and customers help the brand create content according to their preferences. To do this, the Scenes app allows to create this type of contest where the participants create a customized image that they can then download and share.
