Contests
Contests are one of the best ways to cultivate viral sharing of content associated with your brand and to create positive brand affinity in the marketplace. When your social contests are powered by Filemobile, consumers become fully immersed in the contest experience — on your website, on Facebook, and on their mobile phones.
Using Filemobile Contests, you create and deploy social contests that enable participants to upload photos and videos, view galleries, share content, comment, like, and vote on content—all as part of an immersive contest experience. Your contest can live on microsites, Facebook, installable mobile apps, or a combination of them all. Best of all, Filemobile Contests are fully customizable, brandable, and can be combined with other Filemobile products or third-party systems.

Features

Applications

Run your contest using one or more of these Filemobile applications:

  • Facebook Contest - With this option, your audience accesses the contest through a Facebook app embedded into your Facebook Fan Page. It can be exclusive to fans (i.e. to drive new fan likes) or be open to the public. This is ideal if your brand site is on Facebook or you have invested heavily on Facebook.
  • Contest Microsite - The contest microsite lives on your domain (e.g. http://contest.yourbrand.com) and is completely brandable. Simply establish your contest rules and rounds, and sit back and curate your program. Both the Facebook Contest and Microsite Contest can be run at the same time.
  • Mobile Application - You can now run a photo/video contest as a stand-alone mobile app for iOS or Android. These mobile applications can be skinned to resemble your brand and can be companions to the Facebook Contest and Microsite Contest. Some unique mobile features include in-app notifications that allow you to push messages to your audience for sustained engagement.
Voting

The contest platform lets you establish voting rules, such as Once Per Day, Once Per hour, Once Ever, and Unlimited.

Translator

Filemobile’s Translator lets you build your application in multiple languages. It also allows you to keep your social content separated by language (e.g. French comments only show on French site).

Community

Using Filemobile, you can create, manage and nurture an online community as part of your contest initiative. Engage your audience by posting content and comments, moderate comments from members, see user's profiles, build opt-in lists and increase your overall social footprint.

Moderation

Advanced moderation tools empower you to approve and deny incoming media from all sources. Built-in messaging allows you to automatically inform participants when their submissions are approved, or explain why their entry was denied. Filemobile Contests also makes it easy for you to choose contestants and winners over multiple rounds.

Reports

Analyze the success of your contest with reports that track how many uploads, comments, and votes the contest has received. Create content audits to find out how much content was approved/denied. Use all of this information to measure your ROI.
