How to Connect Your Business’s Contest to Your Wildfire App

By Amy Porterfield, Phyllis Khare, Andrea Vahl

Once you’ve added the Wildfire app to your Facebook business page, you still have to connect the exact sweepstakes to your tab that is on your Page. Luckily, Wildfire has a complete tutorial. To connect the contest to your app, follow these steps:

  1. In the Admin panel at the top of your Page, click Edit Page.

    This will give you a drop down menu.

  2. Choose Update Info from the drop-down menu.

    Or you can choose Manage Permissions; either option works.

    You’re taken to the Page dashboard.

  3. Select Apps on the right sidebar.

    You see all the installed apps on your Facebook Page. Scroll down to the Sweepstakes app.

  4. Select Go to App below the description.

    You see a screen asking for permission for the Sweepstakes app to publish on your Page.

  5. Click Allow.

    You see a screen that prompts you to log in to your Wildfire account from Facebook.


  6. Enter the name and e-mail address that you use for your Wildfire account, and click Connect.

    You see a screen with your active promotion listed.

  7. Click the gray Add to Fan Page button.

    You can set your Wildfire campaign to go live in the future so that you can get all your contest-promotion ideas rolling.

    The sweepstakes is now showing in your Apps that appear under your Cover photo of your Page. Depending on how many apps you have there, you may want to change the order of the sweepstakes as soon as it’s live so that it appears more prominently in your Timeline.

    If possible, you should also change the App thumbnail photo to make it more eye-catching for your sweepstakes.
