Getting Started with Ballots

This article outlines the different first steps you should take to maximize your organization's success, and audience engagement.


Planning is the most important step as you get started. Make sure you're taking advantage of all the different revenue and engagement opportunities a Ballot provides.



Depending on the type of ballot you're starting with, consider selling Group Ads, Category Ads, and Featured Entrants to generate revenue. A three-phase ballot with a blackout period provides the most revenue and engagement opportunities.



Creating your Ballot may be the easiest step after you've begun planning and selling. After you've determined the type of ballot and style you can start setting it up.



There are plenty of creative ways to promote your Ballot. The #1 way to promote a ballot is by sending Invite Emails. Be sure to send an invite email before, during, and after each phase of the ballot to drive engagement.
