What a Sweepstakes Can Do For You

What a Sweepstakes Can Do For You
Do you have a small business or are you working on a startup project? A sweepstakes can put your name in the spotlight without the costs of traditional or online advertising! It's one of the greatest branding tools available. Sweepstakes can help not only “test” a marketing campaign or product idea to a new audience, but it can also boost your social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, and wherever your sweepstakes is promoted.

Never has brand awareness been more important than it is now. Daniel Burstein explains at the Marketingsherpa blog that sweepstakes offer multi-layered benefits for the businesses that offer them. Imagine you work-from-home and need more clients. What better way to find new clientele than to run a sweepstakes for “Win 1 Free Hour of Work!” Or if you sell handcrafted goods, let’s say custom T-shirts, imagine a sweepstakes “Win A Free T Shirt!” and getting 100,000s of impressions on your brand, plus 1000s of email signups for your company, just for the cost of 1 t-shirt!

Sweepstakes gets your company name out there, which can help with lead generation, and product or service awareness. Plus, when the sweepstakes winners get public recognition as the “lucky winners”, you can bet that has a positive effect on your brand’s loyalty. And in some cases, sweepstakes can gain the company attention in the media! The sweepstakes network of websites can help promote your brand’s sweepstakes to exponentially more people, getting additional PR releases, social media traffic and inbound sales traffic for your brand!

A tempting sight for just about anyone.

BUT… Running a Sweepstakes is Harder Than it Looks
Pulling off a polished, well-run sweepstakes is a lot different from selling raffle tickets. “Win a Free T Shirt” sounds easy right? But promoting your sweepstakes is a huge consideration. Will you decide to buy advertising space, make a push on social media, send emails? Even the art and writing involved with advertising takes time and resources. Your main objective is likely to sell more of your product or service, not become an email master!

Additionally, before you get to the creative side, there are legalities to consider. These laws often vary by state and some attorney generals have even targeted big sweepstakes websites known for their Win For Life campaigns.

In Burnstein's blog post, he explains that creating the legal rules of the sweepstakes is a job on its own. Businesses have to choose not only the prize or prizes that will be awarded, but also lay out in clear language how to enter, and how winners are selected. Have you ever read the “Official Rules” of a giveaway? It’s pages of legal jargon and costs an arm and a leg for a lawyer to properly review!

Technology is another consideration. Will the public have the option of entering the sweepstakes through social media, a mobile app, through email, or by a link at a website or blog? Do you have development resources?
