Shortstack is a great product. I've been using it for at least the last three years consistently for all of my clients' Facebook promotions. I'll admit, we don't use it as much as we did when like-gating was available, but there are other reasons to use it. However, it's not going to be an easy one to learn to use if you're not digital savvy already.
Pros : - Works with Facebook and Instagram. You can run contests on Facebook to gather email addresses as entry, or photos, or other data. - Easy to ask for permission to add email address to your existing databases, in compliance with privacy laws (in Canada at least). - Very customizeable with templates and the ability to change out all colours & pictures to fit your brand. - Ability to copy a previously used promotion and simply update for next one, which is a great time saver. - Ability to have Instagram entries auto-populated based on brand hashtag. - Ability to import names for a Like & Comment contest on Facebook. - Built in random draw generator. - Ability to assign referral points for recruiting friends to promotion. - Ability to gate based on required information, such as an email, i.e. you can't have the ebook/coupon until you put in an email. - Ability to change CSS codes if you know how. - Customer service is pretty good online. - Ability to embed a promotion on your website. - Ability to limit who can see the entry form (on Facebook at least, by country).
Cons : - Like & Comment import only imports from one post, so if you've collected comments on multiple posts, over a week, you have to import several times and consolidate into one database, at which point you can't use their random draw function, but have to resort to random.org. - I personally found it very overwhelming to learn to use. Almost every campaign I learn something new to do, so I've learned to use it bit by bit over three years to get pretty decent looking promotions, in conjunction with a graphic designer. - There have been glitches...my last promotion just disappeared one week before completion, after three weeks of no issues. They were able to help me get it back without any lost data, just a day or so of entries.

While not perfect, ShortStack is one of the best Facebook app creators out there. And while they have a few omissions, like the lack of an Etsy shop template, they make up for it in their support, number of features, and ease of use.More about ShortStack

What do you like best?Simplicity, pricing and support. You may not ever need to contact them on setting up your giveaway, but when you do they are always ready to help. What do you dislike?Nothing at the moment, but addition to power settings in the future would be great.More about ViralSweep
