What is it?

The Predictor Card is a game that requires users to correctly predict a series of outcomes based on a real-life event such as a sports game, reality TV show, or awards night. 

There are two different kinds of the Predictor Card:

Basic: Users get predictions either right or wrong and the winner is typically drawn from those who got the most predictions correct.

Advanced: Each question has a different allocation of points based on previous responses to that prompt. The person who finishes with the most points when the competition closes is the winner.

Note: This article will focus on building the basic version of the Predictor card. To learn about the advanced version of the Predictor card, click here.

    "Go live" checklist

    Ready to go live with your Live Predictor? We recommend reviewing the following list before launching and double-checking if you have:

    • All images uploaded are the correct dimensions. Export image files in 2x to ensure none of the images appear pixelated.
    • Added all your questions (including imagery where possible).
    • Used survey and market research questions to gain insights and user-generated social media content.
    • Created personalised communications for your market research questions.
    • Each segment is clearly labelled based on your event e.g. for an AFL match it will be "Round 1 Melbourne vs Adelaide Crows".
    • Make sure you have the eye icon marked as visible so your audience is able to see what segments you have ready or available. You can learn more about it here.
    • You have scheduled the segment to open and close, if you know the start and end date and time of your event. This is so you won't need forget or need to close the segment manually before your event is live.
    • Change the colour of the question CTA bar to your brand colours.
    • Hyperlinked your T&C's to the opt in-field, which is created in the data capture section of the settings tab.

    • If you are using coupons, make sure the coupons created are set up correctly. Check the coupon limits are set, the copy for each screen is right and you have linked the appropriate coupons to your communications.
    • Ensure your Prizes and the awarding rules are set up correctly.

    FAQ

    What's the difference between a Basic and Advanced Predictor card?

    With the basic version of the card you will simply nominate a correct answer based on the event's outcome. However, with the advanced version there is a point allocation element that may encourage users to make strategic predictions.

     

    What does a segment refer to?

    A segment simply refers to a portion of your event/events. For a sports game a segment may be an individual quarter or if you're running a season long competition an individual game. For a  reality TV show, one segment may be one episode. How you chose to break down your Predictor card is entirely up to you. 

     

    Top tips

    • If you have multiple segments, it is recommended to have at least 3 questions in each segment. If you have just one segment, look at having a minimum of 5 questions for maximum engagement.
    • Include at least one survey and/or slider question. Allowing your audience to answer questions in different ways makes things interesting.
    • You can create quiz types of questions in your game. In your multi-choice question, click on the Tick icon located next to the answers to select the correct answer.
    • Remember to close segments during your event. You can manually close segments or schedule them to close at a certain time and day. This is to prevent users from predicting on questions that have already occurred.
    • Make use of the Live prize awarding. Reward your audience instantly throughout your event for them to use the prize in-venue/straight away!
      • Make sure to enable Live prize-awarding. You can do this by clicking the ... icon next to the prize and selecting Enable prize awarding.
    • Display your prizes with the top/first prize on top and the other prizes below. This is so users know the grand prize they could potentially win when they play.
      • Name each prize by ranks e.g. 1st Prize - Tickets to the Finals, 2nd Prize - Gift Voucher etc. Include in the prize description how to win that prize e.g. Rank 1st, everyone who enters etc.
