WordPress Tutorials, Tips, and Resources to Help Grow Your Business

Introducing Automatic Entries, 1-Step Email Signups, Daily Entries & More

Last Updated on August 29, 2019 by Keri Engel

Since we launched RafflePress last month, we’ve been listening closely to your feedback. Our goal is to add the features you need most in order to skyrocket your business growth with viral giveaways.

Today we’re excited to announce a TON of new features we’ve added, all from your feedback and suggestions!

Let’s take a look at what’s new…

New Action: Automatic Entries

Now it’s easier than ever for people to enter your giveaways. You can opt to assign entries to people just for signing up for your giveaway! No need for extra steps or requirements.

Streamlined 1-Step Email Newsletter Signup

We’ve simplified the process to add people to your email list so you can grow your email list faster than ever.

Now you can choose to automatically add people to your email list when they sign up for your giveaway, instead of asking them to sign up for your giveaway and email newsletter separately.

All you have to do is select the Trigger on Sign Up option when setting up your giveaway.

This reduced friction will help you to grow your list even faster.

For more details, see our documentation on automatic entries.

NEW Daily Entries

One of the best benefits of running an online giveaway is that it’s great for generating traffic to your site.

To help you grow your website traffic even more, we’ve just added daily entries.

Now for every repeatable action, such as tweeting about your giveaway, you can enable daily entries to keep people coming back to your site again and again.

Automatic Answer Validation

Are you asking people to answer a question with a specific answer in order to enter your giveaway?

With answer validation, it’s easier than ever to make sure your contest entries are valid. For more details, see our documentation on the Answer a Question action.

    Awesome update. Looking forward to growing with RP!

    I am a bit concerned about this line of the article:

    “Now you can choose to automatically add people to your email list when they sign up for your giveaway, instead of asking them to sign up for your giveaway and email newsletter separately.”

    To the best of my knowledge doing this violates GPDR, as consent has to be given separately from Terms agreement (they can’t be rolled into one) and we can’t block users from enter a giveaway if they do not want to be added to a list. :/

    I know that RP is working on adding GDPR compliance but I think that should be happening ASAP given some these changes that are being rolled out that appear to be violating it.

    1. John Turner says:

      Hi Amber, Thanks for the comments. These are all optional so if you are concerned with GDPR compliance then you should use the confirmation option with the Join Email list option and not auto-trigger the action. This provides explicit consent from the user before they join the list.

  3. Amber says:

    Ok perfect. Sorry, I read that like it was changing to that vs. becoming an option. 👍
