  • In this presentation we will look at how to promote a contest, the way to go about it along with cost and time it takes and tips to run your promotion.
  • Introduction to contest promotion Contest promotion is a unique way to create people’s interest in your website, product or your company. You can create a game or program and offer a reward to your visitors or participants.
  • Contest execution The first step to a contest promotion campaign is outlining the parameters of the contest. You can ask visitors to sign up or enter their email addresses in order to participate thus creating a database of potential leads. Advertising your contest on other sites by adopting strategies like use of keywords, classified ads will help in popularizing the contest.
  • Cost and timeframe The only major cost in this campaign is the prize offered. In case you wish to publicize your contest then a nominal cost would add on. The timeframe or the length of the contest really depends on the scale of the contest. Usually it takes a few weeks for spreading of the word about your contest. In most cases a full fledged contest can run from 6 to 8 weeks.
  • Tactics for an efficient campaign Choose a prize as per the level of the contest, for example a t-shirt as a reward cant be given out in a contest which takes a lot of time and effort. You must mention the rules and requirements of participation clearly. Running referral contests is a great way of advertising your contest where a client gets a reward for every referral that is converted to a sale.
  • Additional channels Collect a data base of email addresses of those who participate in the contest. You can use this information to start email campaigns and newsletters.
  • We hope this video has answered key questions you have in mind. Incase you have further questions then please visit us at
