Featured Public Giveaways & Contests

Today we've launched our first version of Public Giveaways - a way for Gleam to showcase some of the best giveaways from customers on a monthly basis.

Our plan is to iterate on this idea to eventually bring together an ecosystem that unites brands and consumers together in a way that is both unique & rewarding.

If you're interested in having your campaign featured please contact Support, you must have run at least 1 campaign with the winners announced and prize verified to qualify. Please note we cannot feature every campaign we receive but you will receive a reply if selected.

New Discord Actions

We're thrilled to announce 2 powerful new Discord actions for your Competitions & Rewards: Discord Server Boost and Discord Server Role. These features unlock exciting possibilities for deeper community engagement and rewarding your most dedicated members.

  • Discord Server Boost: Motivate your community to Boost your server by rewarding them with Competition entries! This incentivizes members to come together and unlock performance boost and new features, which directly translates to a more vibrant community.
  • Discord Server Role: Recognize and reward your loyal supporters! Grant Competition entries to users with specific server roles. This allows you to create exclusive experiences for dedicated members and incentivize them to participate in specific server activities, such as verifying their identity, becoming a paid customer, becoming an affiliate, etc.

Here are some ideas on how you can take your Discord campaigns to the next level:

  • Multiple Server Rewards: Run Competitions where users can earn entries for joining multiple Discord servers you manage. This can be a great strategy for organizations with various sub-communities.
  • Create Entry Tiers with Roles: Assign different entry weights to different Discord server roles. For example, moderator roles might unlock more entries compared to standard roles.

Add to Calendar Action

The Add to Calendar action is now available on the Pro plan and above for Competitions & Rewards.

This action allows you to create a calendar event which then prompts the user to save it to their preferred Calendar app. We support iCal, Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Microsoft Outlook Calendar, and Outlook on the web.

Boost Participation: Encourage users to save Competition deadlines and event reminders directly to their calendars with a single click. This increases the likelihood of them participating and staying engaged throughout the entire Competition lifecycle.

Streamline User Experience: Offer a seamless and convenient way for users to stay informed about critical dates and events straight from their own calendar. For example, the launch date of a sales campaign, or the closing date for submission.
