How to create a sweepstake in promoted ads with Instagram Sweepstakes?
1. Access Cool Tabs, create a new campaign and choose the Instagram Sweepstakes for Promoted Ads app. Allow access to your ads and choose the Instagram user with which you are going to launch the contest. Keep in mind that, as you're going to run a sweepstake in a promoted ad, you can only do it among users who have commented a certain post.
- Select the promoted ad you want to run the contest with.
- Select the dates by which the data will be collected.
* Bear in mind that you should include the new post right after you create it, to ensure that all the participations are collected. Instagram only gives us the last 100 comments and/or likes.
To choose the winner or winners, click on 'Choose winners' on the 'Winners' tab that you'll find on the left side of your screen.
- You can select the winner or winners among the users that commented your photo/s or video/s. You can also filter the participants who have followed the account/s required (filter only available from our Gold One Plan).
Once you've chosen the winner/s, you'll get a link to a public winner's webebpage, so you can share the results with all your followers.
Can I create a sweepstake among participants who liked a promoted ad on Instagram?
It's not possible to create a sweepstake among participants who liked a promoted post, as Instagram doesn't provide that kind of information. You can only create the sweepstake among users who have commented a promoted post.
