We switched from Second Street which offered a bank of promotion templates as well as managed campaigns. This is something we miss but can no longer justify the cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Great stats tracking, multiple ways of running contests, tons of customisation options. Almost everything is editable: backgrounds, buttons, fields, etc. Custom CSS is also allowed for even more options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The documentation is very lacking. It would be great if they had a series of tutorials that help you understand all the contest types and how to take advantage of their customisation options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking for a robust platform to run online contests, Woobox is a great place to both start, and to keep using! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The service is relatively cheap and somewhat easy to use Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

First of all, I tried using the promotions tab on my facebook business page to run the raffle I was using woobox to manage. The interface was horrible. When I clicked the raffle link, it brought me to a mostly blank promotions page with a small link in the corner that you had to click to see the full raffle page. I'm sure this was confusing for whoever tried to click the link, plus involved an extra click. I probably lost a good deal of leads this way, but had already paid for the service (you will have to pay to officially start your campaign) and was financially committed.

Second, when running a facebook campaign using woobox they give you the ability to launch a facebook ad from within woobox. While this sounds like a great feature. You are very limited in your control of the audience that sees the ad and other ad features. You then have to go into facebook ad manager to further refine your ad audience, etc... so what's the point of even providing this feature?

Third, the raffle manager is a little clunky and takes some getting used to.

Last, they have a NO REFUND policy so if you don't like the service, or forget to cancel you will not get your money back!

I think there are better services out there, including wishpond, which I recently used and worked much better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

They need to clean up the bugs interfacing with facebook. And a better refund policy would be appreciated. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I am able to choose a winner at random when I host contests on social media and it is much easier to do that and show proof of a random winner than to try and choose someone myself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love how simple it is to launch a campaign using the Woobox application. I've ran numerous social media custom tab campaigns through woobox. Setup includes just uploading your files and clicking the live button! It is as simple as that! You can also track your entrants, stats, and traffic through your campaign dashboard. I'd recommend this platform to anyone in the social media field trying to launch an offer, campaign, or quick quiz. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that you need to program your own form into the dashboard as opposed to having a built in form (with fields such as first name, last name, email) that you can just add to your design. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely add this to your Social Media deck! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It was really simple to embed and integrate into existing websites and social channels, especially Facebook, for contest involvement. We need a simple tool to cross 10 different and very clients. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike. It was simple and easy to setup and execute. Would be nice to have an external tool to build out a central "landing page" to cross varying participants into a funneled contest. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Makes it really easy to include adequate legal terms. Easy user interface. Works seamlessly across all social media outlets. Also, the name is fun! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have no complaints at this time. I find the service to be very robust and it has met all my needs. I have used this to run social media contests across multiple platforms. It would be nice if it integrate its own random selection winner picker (those are terrible words, but I think you get my meaning.) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The tool is easy to use and implement. It is rather easy to get started with building a complete Woobox social promotion. Woobox does a lot of the work for you, which is great. The price point is very reasonable as well, which is certainly a nice plus. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There doesn't seem to be a lot of customization or configuration that you can implement, unfortunately. I had to try another tool to be able to use custom fields for a sweepstakes, for example. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Woobox seems to be a jack of all, best of none when it comes to creating social promotions. There are plenty of business challenges where this type of platform could make a ton of sense. On the flip side, if you want a lot of depth - for example, a powerful tool specifically designed for conducting a sweepstakes - you may need to look elsewhere. We found the ability to customize and tweak promotions to be a little bit disappointing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Woobox is really easy to start offering a large range of social promotions. You don't have to do much work to set them up and make them work. There is little learning curve, and they are incredibly easy to set up. The promotions that we have run through Woobox allow us to generate new contacts, leads, and prospects. We have not used Woobox for any of its social advertising features - we have only used it for its promotion feature set. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

That I can run giveaways on my business page and not have to go through the hassle of counting entries, woobox picks them for me once I give it basic parameters. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

That I can only pick giveaways on my business page. This would be a lot more useful if I could use it in groups etc by providing the post id link instead Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you thoroughly go through the platform when setting it up. I still occasionally get lost on it trying to remember where what I'm looking for is. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Connection to customers, giveaways help with getting my business exposure and woobox makes that exposure process easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

With WooBox, my company's Facebook page can act as a portal to my other social media outlets which can increase the chances of new visits and engagement with the other services.

I like the easy to use interface. Woobox offers many types of surveys, polls, etc. can pull reports easily Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dont like the fact that they dont offer an option to verify an email address is real. When creating a voting poll you can only put up to 50 choices. When in the reporting section, you have to click to doenload your list. Sometimes it works and sometimes you have to try several times. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I first saw this and was very interested in what it could do. If your trying to find a way to market with todays social media, this is the way to go. The user interface looks easy to use and has it made simple to use tools. Even makes it simple for features and other areas that you want to imbed into your Facebook or Youtube Channel. Very creative in getting into your site to market.

Interesting how it has tools like analysis to check your sites.

settings do make it easy to use and configure based on what your trying to apply based on page creature that you use. all with just a direct link.

I like that there are other people who have this and uploaded how to guides, tips and tricks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was more features and ability to apply more tools and features. limited on social media.

templates would be nice to upload Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Social media, is like the best place where people hangout. I think its like the 90s chatrooms. People live in this type of area and software. So why not try to corner the market with such creative and power tools.

Made very simple to use to use any link and urls to creative ads to generate and publish on media sites. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
