New York, NY (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
Offerpop, the most widely used social marketing platform, today announced the general availability of its enhanced Photo Contest app, which now features easy one-click activation of Facebook Open Graph actions. Customers who beta tested the app are already seeing a huge lift in virality, with 91 million News Feed impressions recorded in just two months.
Of the 871 campaigns run over a two month-period with Open Graph actions enabled, 9 people visited a campaign for every entrant who published their participation on their Timeline, and 2 people visited the campaign for every voter who published their participation.
"We used Offerpop's new Photo Contest app to power our 2013 Model Search,” said Melissa Bissell, Marketing Manager at Garage, a leading Canada-based teen retailer. “By turning on Open Graph actions with a single click, an additional 600,000 people have visited the campaign so far. Open Graph was integral to the viral success of the campaign."
With Offerpop’s enhanced Photo Contest app, marketers can run Open Graph actions simply by clicking a box, eliminating the need to pay for custom development or go through a separate approval process with Facebook. As a result, News Feed stories are instantly generated every time a fan submits an entry or votes, dramatically boosting virality.
Featuring a highly visual interface optimized for mobile and tablet screens, Photo Contest creates a seamless user experience for fans across devices. Additionally, the app works across all major photo-sharing networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
“User-generated content campaigns are one of the most effective ways to acquire and engage fans. Facebook's Open Graph actions let marketers take these campaigns to the next level," said Mark Cooper, Offerpop co-founder and CMO." By making Open Graph actions available with a single click, and combining that with the ability to run campaigns across all major social networks and mobile devices automatically, we've built the most viral Photo Contest app out there.”
