The Competitions module allows users of all skill levels to quickly build and launch a competition into market, creating a lead generating powerhouse for your sales and marketing funnel.  An affordable and effective way to drive sales,  acquire new customers, engage with your database and obtain new customer preferences.

Why run a competition?

Acquire new customers

Drive growth with the ability to acquire 10’s of millions of qualified email addresses as people enter your competition. The competitions module provides the opportunity to run thousands of promotions to collect millions of data points.

Higher engagement

Strike while the iron is hot by encouraging competition entrants to sign up for a newsletter, or offer them added benefits such as special offers during the confirmation and notification trigger cycle. These emails and SMS often have high open rates, improving ROI and presenting an excellent engagement opportunity.

Increase sales

Entry to an enticing competition can require customers to firstly buy something to get the necessary entry codes. On-pack barcodes or unique codes emailed upon minimum purchase requirements will immediately lift sales with customers eager to win.

Deepen loyalty

Instant wins with many small prizes work wonders, especially when integrated across multiple social platforms. Whether the entry process is simple, fun or both, running regular competitions will encourage long term loyalty. Of course, a grand prize on top of the smaller prizes doesn’t hurt either if you have the budget.

Engage your customers across multiple touchpoints

Competitions can be used across multiple marketing channels to achieve different objectives. Deploying a competition online will instantly increase site traffic. Competitions released on social platforms encourage sharing and engagement, while competitions run through SMS reduce barriers to entry. Using all three channels will maximise sales, reach, and entry opportunities.

Enrich data

Advanced reporting of competition performance lets marketers create ROI models and benchmarking against industry standards.
