Let's see how you can use WrapBox to quickly run & manage giveaways on Twitter

Before we get started, if you don't have a Twitter account, you can sign up for a free account here.

Once you're ready with the Twitter account, it's now time to sign up on WrapBox. You can do this by clicking the "Sign in with Twitter" button on the login page.

Once you've signed into WrapBox, click on the "Create Giveaway" button. Alternatively, you can use this link. This will take you to the Create giveaway page.

Set Title & Description for your Giveaway

Let's start by filling in the title & description of your giveaway as shown in the above image. Make sure you clearly describe what you're giving away so that your audience can participate accordingly.

If you decide to close your giveaway within a certain window, you can choose one of the options in the "Auto closes in" field. If not, you can leave it blank.

Next, let's setup the tweet interaction rules 👍

Configure tweet interaction rules

Fill in the Tweet URL for which you wanna boost engagement. This can be a tweet about the giveaway itself or anything else. But make sure it's a tweet from your account.

Next up, let's setup the interactions you want

  • Like : If you've enabled this, users must like the tweet to be eligible
  • Retweet : If you've enabled this, users must retweet the tweet to be eligible
  • Hashtag : If you've enabled this & specified the hashtags, users must reply to the tweet with the hashtags to be eligible
  • Follow : If you've enabled this & specified the accounts, users must follow those accounts to be eligible

As you can see now, WrapBox is not just a Retweet Picker or a Comment Picker. It's a full-fledged configurable Giveaway engine 🚀.
