The New Design Editor for Sweepstakes

We have launched the new Design Editor for Sweepstakes, Viral Sweepstakes, Trivia Sweepstakes, Viral Trivia Sweepstakes, Instant Win Sweepstakes and Signup Forms. Using this new feature, you can change all of the campaign settings within the editor in a user friendly approach.

Note: We here at Votigo are constantly trying to improve our templates, and, as such, these overviews are subject to change. The classic template is depreciated and it is no longer available to create new Sweepstakes and sign up forms, but the existing Sweeps and sign up forms created on classic template will work as it is.


Template selection can be done from Details tab, once a template is chosen,  users will be landed on new design editor where you have the flexibility to change each and every element of the campaign

You can always come out of the editor by clicking either on Back or Continue buttons which are located at the top navigation of editor.  Back button will take you to the Details tab of campaign whereas Continue button will land you in the Publish tab of campaign.

The Phase toggle in the editor header allows you to edit the page for the Active and Ended phases of campaign. Select the desired phase to make the edits. All options are editable in the Active Phase. In the Ended phase - campaign dates, campaign settings, header, description and confirmation message text are editable.
