Online giveaways and sweepstakes can be a reliable way to generate attention and collect email address for subsequent marketing efforts. ViralSweep is a web application that companies can use to host professional giveaways on their own blogs and websites, with real-time analytics, mobile optimization, and other key management features.
Building a giveaway promotion from scratch doesn’t have to be hard. Enter the details of your online sweepstakes—like the title, start/end dates, number of winners, and approximate retail value—into ViralSweep’s DIY giveaway building tool, and paste the provide code onto your website. The sweepstakes you’ve designed will be embedded directly on your homepage. You can customize the giveaway by adding background images, logos, and product images. View real-time analytics to see how many visitors have entered and shared your contest with their friends, and select the ultimate winner with the click of a button.
The real benefit to hosting an online giveaway has to do with the customer information you collect along the way. With ViralSweep, you can require that visitors enter their email addresses to enter your contests, and then export the data you collect into a CSV file to save on your hard drive. You can also up the ante, as far as sharing is concerned, by offering visitors “bonus entries” for ‘liking’ your company on Facebook or referring their followers to your website.
