How to generate new followers with a soft gate

Marc-Alexis Dufour -

What is a soft gate?

A soft gate is a customizable box displayed on top of the first screen of your campaign. It invites participants to like a specific Facebook page or Twitter account before entering a campaign.

It can be activated in the tab "1. <Publication Channel” simply check ''activate a soft gate.

The soft gate can be used in any contest on any publication channel and works on mobile devices. However - in order inter alia to respect Facebook rules -  you can’t force participants to like your Facebook page or Twitter account.

For example, you can invite participants to like your Facebook page or Twitter account from a contest on your website. But participants can skip this step and access your campaign without clicking on the "like" of "follow" button.

Warning: Your Soft Gate won't work if you have age and geo-restrictions on your Facebook page. More info:
