What The Product Does
Bespoke Facebook Contests. Simplified.
The platform allows the client to create custom facebook competitions of various types and deploy them as facebook apps/tabs. Without needing to code.
Create multiple types of competitions based on an unique core. New competitions draw upon that core instead of being created from scratch.
Facebook App Generator
Deploy the competition to the designated Facebook page, at the click of a button. Each competition is integrated with Facebook's JS & PHP APIs.
The competition platform automatically validates received answers where needed. It selects designated no. of random winners and distributes prizes based on a back-end logic.
Why The Product Was Needed
To save time and money when designing and developing competitions. It was meant to replace and improve on the functionality that ShortStack provided. But, most of all, to engage the brand's audience.
Streamline The App Generation
Get from idea to app as fast as possible, without requiring the aid of a complete development team.
Migrating from Done For You to DIY allows for smaller development and maintenance fees.
What Challenges It Overcame
Deploy the power of shortstack in a short amount of time. And up the ante.
Creating On-the-fly Facebook Apps
Fully integrate with Facebook's JS & PHP APIs.
Condense multiple steps into one click
Reduce Database Handling, Facebook App creation and Facebook Tab publishing to a one-step process.
Manage facebook apps from within the CMS
Add, edit and implement facebook apps from within the same dashboard.
Plan for the future
Allow for the creation of as many competition types as needed (extendable competition types).
Brands on social media are boring, most of the time. A bit of lifestyle info here, a funny picture there... I enjoyed working on a platform that allows me, a fan, to play around with the brand. And maybe win something in the process. But, aside from that, I built something that can scale. Big-time.
