Displaying giveaways in custom website widgets
Each individual giveaway has elements that you can customize; set a specific landing page URL, add an image and update the text for the headline of the giveaway. You can also leave the default settings for any element. In addition, you can opt to show the total entries to-date and the number of days left until the promotion expires.
Selecting giveaways to be shown in custom widgets
You can select all or specific giveaways that you are live to show within your widget. As giveaways expire they will automatically cease to display in the list. You can also customize the order in which they appear to ensure your popular, attention grabbing giveaways are at the top or organize by end date to make sure your users don’t miss out on giveaways that expire soon.
Including external giveaways in custom widgets
Widgets do offer the option of adding links to giveaways that are not within your PromoSimple account. Whether you are hosting a group giveaway that is being administered by a partner or have a promotion that uses an external tool you can still add it to your widget. Just add the details for the promotion (title, URL, end date and an optional image) and it will appear in the list of available giveaways to be shown within your widget.
