Tutorial: Statistics and results of Easypromos promotions

One of the most important phases of any promotional action is the results analysis. This is what enables you to determine if the set objectives have been met. To help you do this, Easypromos incorporates a statistics module which permits you to obtain the results of your promotion and analyze its evolution easily.

In this tutorial, we explain which statistics you can obtain from the campaigns you carry out with Easypromos. The statistics can be divided into two types:

 

1. General list of participants

2. Application’s own statistics 

3. Google Analytics statistics (Premium and White Label only)

 

1. Participants list

From the promotion administration page the administrator can, at any time, consult the list of users registered in the promotion. This list includes the registration details of each participant as well as information about the participation based on the contest type:

For greater convenience, the administrator can download this list to Excel. This file will include all the information provided by participants at the point of registration.

Read these instructions on how to download the participants list to Excel.

The administrator can check the promotion statistics to obtain the necessary data to analyze the performance of the promotion: total number of registered users, recruiting percentage, devices used for registering, origin of users, etc.

4. Visits

This section shows the visits to the promotions’ pages, as well as funnel conversion rates. This data is automatically extracted from Google Analytics, which collects and stores the data of visits, page views, unique visits and funnel conversion rates for each promotion.

Visit123.gif

The information displayed is not in real time, but the data is updated every 6 hours. In order for the system to track the visits and page views, it is necessary that the participant has the cookies enabled in the browser or device.

The statistics of visits provide you with the following information:

A. Page views: It shows the total number of visits received in each of the pages of the promotion. A pageview is counted each time a user visits a page of the promotion, so repeated visits to the same page are also counted.

Example: If the user enters the promotion from the landing page, goes then to the registration form, and finally the user goes to the thank you page, 3 visits will be counted.

In particular, you can obtain data about the main screens of the promotion:

  • Landing page.
  • Quiz: in case of having the quiz enabled, you’ll obtain the visits received in each of the questions.
  • Registration form.
  • Thank you page.


In addition, you can also obtain page views data of the following additional promotion’s screens:

  • Winners: when the winners of the promotion are published.
  • Participants list: it corresponds to the page where entries are published (public gallery).
  • Individual entry: it corresponds to the individual page of each user's’ entry.
  • Already participating user: this is the screen where users that already participated see when they click the ‘Enter’ button again.
  • Certificate of validity: this is the page where the certificate of the sweepstakes is published.
  • Not allowed access: it corresponds to users that write a not valid URL, or access the promotion when it hasn’t started yet, when it’s finished, when the promotion is not accessible, or when the promotion is filtered by country.


B. Total of Visits: It shows the total number of sessions that have been registered for the promotion, understood as the period during which a user interacted with the application. In order to count the visits, the system uses cookies, which allow to identify each user by an anonymous number. This number is created the first time the user accesses the application. This cookie persists until it expires or it is deleted, which makes that repeated sessions from the same user during the interaction with the application, do not count as additional users, but only as sessions.

C. Unique Visits: It shows the total number of unique visits (sessions) that have been registered for the promotion (these are counted once). It shows the total number of unique visits that have reached each page of the promotion.

Example: The following promotion received a total number of 32 unique visits. Of all these, 18 users accessed the registration form and 8 reached the thank you page, which represents a 72,73% of the total unique visits:

Visit12345.gif

D. Funnel Conversion rate: It shows the percentage of unique visits that have moved from one page of the promotion to the other.

 

Example: The following promotion counted a total of 32 unique visits that accessed the promotion landing page. Of these visits 32 unique visits:

  • 18 visited the registration form, which represents 100%% of the 32 unique visits.
  • 8 reached the thank you page, which represents:
    • 72,73% of the 8 users that come from the previous step (registration form).
    • 100% of the 18 users that come from the first step (landing page).


Visit12345.gif

These percentages will help us better understand the funnel conversion of users that visit our promotion and assess step-to-step drop-off, so this data will be useful to better analyze the steps that users take to reach our goal (reach the final thank you page).


5. Clicks on Share

The application has been designed so that the action of sharing the promotion becomes easy and quick for users. In this way, the ‘Share’ button is presented in an appealing way on every page of the promotion, inviting users to disseminate and viralize the promotion via the different channels that the platform puts at the disposal of users.

In this section of the statistics the administrator can check the number of clicks generated for each channel.

Note: The application will test the number of times each of the available buttons is clicked on. These include buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, email and, for users who access via their smartphones, WhatsApp, Telegram and Line. However, it doesn’t measure the number of shares from each channel.)

From this section the administrator can obtain the following information:

A. Number of clicks per social network: It indicates the number of times each button has been clicked on to share the promotion across the various social networks and viralize the promotion. The total number of clicks per social network is displayed, as is the percentage that this represents compared to the other social networks that have been clicked on:

6. Sources

When a new user visits the promotion, the platform automatically detects where the user has come from (source), and keeps this information for each of the users registered in the promotion. From this section, the administrator will be able to know the source that is registered for the participants. In particular, you’ll be able to obtain the following information:

A. Totals: It indicates the total number of traffic sources detected for the promotion and the number of users coming from each source. In addition, the following information is also given:
