2. Lucky Draw

Enter the event title, keyword, event quota, and event time. 

You can also set up advanced settings and prize content.  

  • Advanced Setting: Besides comment keywords, you also need to select the conditions that qualify customers for participation in the lucky draw. Unlike Facebook Page Live, the Facebook group Live currently only supports up to 3 conditions:
    • Users who have purchased before: 
      1. Only customers who have placed an order through livestream before can enter the lucky draw. 
      2. If you have sent a cart link to your customers from backstage and created an order for the customer, the customer will also be able to enter the lucky draw. 
    • Product keyword commented: Only customers who have left a product keyword in the livestream can enter the lucky draw. 
    • Not a winner: Given that you have created multiple lucky draws in a livestream, if customer A has won a prize in the lucky draw A event, they will not be able to enter another lucky draw B event. 
  • Prize content: You can select a product or gift as a lucky draw prize. 

In the next step, you can customize your lucky draw messages. Once you have completed the settings, click Create

Once the Group Live is connected to the Admin and has begun, click the Go icon to start the lucky draw event. 

Customer comments will appear in the comment section on the right, and the number of participants and people eligible will sync up in real time on the left. 

The customer event comments are categorized into the following: 

  • Unauthorized commenter: The customer's name will not appear in the comments section on the right. 
  • Completed step 1 of the authorization: This customer has completed step 1 of the authorization and returned to the comments section to comment with an event keyword/ any other content (this comment is considered step 2 of the authorization). The customer will need to comment with an event keyword once more to participate in the lucky draw. 
  • Completed step 2 of the authorization: This event will be marked as an event comment.

If you did not set an event time, the system automatically draws a winner when the event ends; you can also draw a winner manually. 

*Note: 

  • Facebook groups currently do not support showing the drawing process in a new window. You can only draw the winner on this current tab.

3. Leave keyword and get limited vouchers

Enter the event title, keyword, discount quota, discount amount, and event time. 

*Note: Unlike the rule in the Facebook Page Live that the first comment meeting the keyword will receive the discount instantly, the discount is issued once the event ends (winner is drawn) in Facebook Group Live. Therefore you can set the event time.

In the next step, you can customize the event message. Once setup is complete, click Create

*Note: Because the discount is issued after the event ends (winner is drawn), the "Get discount message" from the Facebook Page will be adjusted to "Draw message" in the Facebook Group Live.
