Bracket Overview

Brackets are a fun and exciting way to create matchups between 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 competitors over multiple rounds of play. Familiar with NCAA March Madness? We've taken the concept of Brackets made wildly popular through the popular Basketball tournament and have modified it so that Brackets can be used for any topic!

In a nutshell, competitors play each other in matchups within a round with winners advancing to subsequent rounds until one winner is declared.

Votion Brackets run in a variety of modes. Votion provides the largest number of options available - we have something for every marketer and use case! Contact us if you have any questions!

Voting mode

In voting mode users choose who they like better in matchups within rounds that are set with a predetermined schedule that can be set in our secure console. Competitors who earn the most votes move to subsequent rounds until a winner of the campaign is declared.
