The Promotion Tools has four sub-settings: Social Sharing Options, Blog/Web Call-out Tool, Post Planning and Comment System.


Sweepstakes App.These are settings for your social media sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and Pinterest. The information you will put in here will determine how your ad or posts will appear on the social medias mentioned.


Generate added traffic by creating a promotional call-out using the Blog/Web Call-out Tool. All you have to do is upload a photo and it will then provide you an embed code. This code can be placed to your blog or website which, in turn, creates a call-out image. When this image is clicked by visitors, they will be directed to your tab on Facebook.


Want to schedule your posts to social networks and publish it at the same time? The Post Planning setting can do this job.  There are three scheduling services provided by the page, these are Hootsuite, Sendible and Buffer. However, before you click one of them, see to it that you save your page first. The generated URL for posting is in the form of a SMART URL since it is PC and mobile friendly. Online visitors will be forwarded to your created Facebook tab.



Comment System. Gives you an option to enable your blog followers to comment on your posts via Facebook and a Form. You can get email notification when someone commented on your post and you can also set comment approval if you prefer.


Gates. You first need to upload a 810 x 810 pixel image. The gate image can be used as a checking tool for users visiting your site. If they are not your fan, only the gate image will appear to them. Whereas, if they are a fan, they are able to access the content  tab.


Advanced Setting. You can upload an 810 x 75 pixels header image for your app in this section. You can choose to simply drag and drop the image to the page or upload it directly from your computer. Your link color, text color and background color can also be customized in this section. Lastly, the setting has already provided the default styles for customizing the CSS associated with your app.


The Language settings encompass three sections specifically Sweepstakes, General, and the Comment System.
