- Viral effect.
Users submit content and also invite friends and family to vote. Those who don’t participate send invitations to others just to share the new fun they found with their loved ones.
Contests bring really exciting content and experience to your clients.Contestants and their fans come back to check the results, to vote, to comment, to see more.
- Longer, more exciting visits.
Participants and spectators come to see how well their or their friends’ photos are doing, and will be checking out the other contestants’ photos as well. Excited visitors are more likely to feel good about your brand, your service and your offers.
- Viral lead acquisition.
Buzz is good, but – business first! – your marketing will be propelled by contests: email registration is required for participation, so, in addition to the great buzz and stickiness, you also get a valuable opt-in client contact list and users familiar with your site contest will be more likely to feel comfortable when contacted by you.
- Setup once, use forever.
Unlike with most any marketing efforts, the buzz and viral effect continues far beyond the first contest (especially if you get creative and keep running new exciting contests). You can run any number of concurrent or consecutive contests at no extra cost, you can turn your random visitors into devoted fans and the best promoters to their friends.
