We’ve been super busy this month adding new entry methods to Gleam. One of which agencies have been asking us for some time now.

You can use ask users to watch a video from either YouTube or Vimeo as part of an entry requirement into a competition/giveaway.

YouTube

Simply add YouTube as an entry option in the Gleam backend & put in the URL of the video you want users to watch.

You can choose to let users skip through the video or watch it to the end in order to activate their entry.

Vimeo

Vimeo works in much the same way, however they don’t give us a way to hide the controls via the API. So users are able to skip through the videos if they want.

This is a fantastic entry method for agencies or advertisers who want to get more exposure to their videos in a scalable way. Put a little Gleam into your next campaign 🙂
