How to use the retweet entry method
Thinking of making use of our Retweet entry method? Follow these simple instructions to setup one of our most effective entry methods!
When creating your giveaway, scroll to the bottom of your draft and look for an entry method category titled "Twitter". From here, click this category to expand and you'll be prompted with a number of Twitter based methods; this includes our "Retweet" method.
From here, you'll be asked to enter the URL of your tweet you wish to have retweeted while your giveaway is active. As you likely have yet to create the tweet you'd like to use (most hosts use their giveaway announcement tweet), we recommend entering a "placeholder" tweet until you're ready to change/update it. We suggest using a tweet which is SFW and somewhat recent.
Once your giveaway has been published and is active/live, you'll want to edit your previously entered "placeholder" tweet, likely with one which is recent and relevant to your giveaway. To do this, simply head to your giveaway by going to "Dashboard" > "My Giveaways" from the side menu and selecting the giveaway in question.
After selecting your giveaway, select "Edit" from the "Entries" section of your giveaway.
Locate your "Retweet" entry method, select the drop-down arrow from the far right side.
Now simply edit/update the URL of your tweet from the placeholder to the new tweet.
That's it! Your tweet is now updated and will be retweeted anytime an entrant takes action on this particular entry method!
