One of the most loved Christmas traditions is the Advent Calendar. In this tutorial I will show you how you can create your own digital Advent calendar using the Stagecast loyalty program.
Every day you can start a different Christmas themed Stagecast activity. Participants will sign in with their E-Mail address and can track their progress in the Advent Calendar. Those participants who have participated at least in 12 activities during December can enter a special prize draw.
1. Start off by creating your Stagecast activities
Start by preparing different Christmas-themed Stagecast activities. We made this very easy with Christmas templates: Simply search for "Christmas" in the templates tab and choose the ones you like best.
You can edit the content, add your own logos and even add Prizes for daily giveaways and prizes.
2. Enable a Participant Profiles & Loyalty Program
Next, enable participant profiles in your workspace. Click on "Participant Profiles" on the top right of the workspace.
For participants to track their progress in the the Advent calendar loyalty program, they only need their E-Mail address. You can customize the sign-in with your own content and explain what to expect from the Advent calendar to your participants.
Next, setup the loyalty program. Add different "achievements" that participants will have to complete in order to enter the prize draw. For a Christmas Advent calendar, we recommend the "Participate in Activities" achievement type.
3. Invite your audience and start your Christmas activities
Finally, invite your audience and start one activity each day. As people participate in your Christmas activities, they will also collect points towards their Christmas loyalty program achievements. You can view the participant and winner list on the participant profile page. When you start a new activity, participants will be notified via their E-mail address automatically.
