Do you want to get your name out there? Do you want to tell potential customers what makes you different, and how do you stand out in your industry? Do you want to increase your reach and following? Regardless if you’re a retailer, small business owner, brand manager or marketer, a contest or sweepstakes provides a unique opportunity to build and expand your community.
The reason contests are so attractive is that, no matter your industry, whether you’re a business or organization, you and your brand can benefit many ways from a properly managed contest. Contests and contest marketing can help you:
With all of these benefits, why not run a contest? A successful contest is an offer that resonates with your current clients, while also providing prospects with something interesting to get some buzz generated. Combining a properly managed contest with your existing email or social marketing programs can help boost overall traffic and generate leads toward conversions.
