Rewards Fuel's Contesting Blog

WordPress contests with our Rewards Fuel Plugin

Rewards Fuel integrates with any WordPress website. We have created our own plugin that can easily be installed and used to:

  1. Easily embed your contest.
  2. Create giveaways right from your website.
  3. Use post comments as contest entries.

We have created a series of videos to help you, from installation of the plugin to setting up comments as contest entries.

How to install our plugin

The video below illustrates how to install our plugin or, if you have installed WordPress plugins before, you may simply click here for the download.

 

Embedding your contest

You can always use our traditional JavaScript embed code, which you will find on your contest page, but if you prefer to use our short codes – which will not break when you’re editing blog posts – we suggest you follow the instructions in this short video.

Using comments as an entry method

If you want to improve the engagement of your posts, we suggest adding some incentive by allowing people to enter your contest by leaving a comment. Since this method requires that your blog talks to our service, you have to have our plugin installed and an API key in use.

In order to use comments as an entry, you will first have to setup that entry method, then select it to enable it on your post page. This video makes that process easy to understand. Give it a watch and you will be up and running in minutes!

Creating contests right from your website

Once you have our plugin installed and API key added, you will see a button that allows you to create a new contest. This process allows you to first choose your goal for the contest e.g. building your newsletter, improving RSVPs on Facebook, gaining Twitter followers etc.

Once you select your goal, just fill in the simple form template with the rest of your info. After that, you will have new WordPress embed code. We have created this video to further explain how to use our quick contest creator.
