Before you start To run a successful sweepstakes, you need: ●  An enticing prize that: ○  is related to your business or brand ○  appeals to your target audience ○  promotes strategic partnerships ○  has viral capacity -- would you want to share this, and with whom? ○  has a determined monetary value ●  Content to promote the sweepstakes ○  Signage ○  Social content ○  Tweets ○  Advertisements ○  Event marketing ●  A stated set of rules determining how you will manage the contest ●  A hosted platform for your contest rules so entrants can easily access them desiitaly, via Flickr

Marketing considerations ●  What does the opt-in process look like? ●  What does the post opt-in process look like? ●  How will you use content generated by entrants? ●  How will you respond to issues and questions during the campaign? (Is extra staff required?) Determination of winners ●  Every Xth entry wins ●  The Xth entry wins ●  Winners randomly selected at the end ○  Manually, or automatically ●  First X number of entries wins You should create an Official Rules document stating your contest rules, including entry collection, winner notification and fulfillment.

  • 11. Legal aspects of running a sweepstakes Sweepstakes are governed by state and illegal lottery and consumer protection laws which you MUST adhere to when running a sweepstakes. You are not protected by your sweepstakes software provider. Here are a few basics to consider: > Clearly state the mechanics of your online contest in your terms & conditions (i.e. start date, duration, odds, entry process, prizes, winner determination & notification) > Do not require a purchase (i.e. “No purchase necessary”), and know how state laws define “purchase” (you may not be allowed to require an endorsement or opt-in) > Obtain the appropriate rights and licenses from all entrants (these requirements may be different for minors) > Advertising a sweepstakes (no purchase necessary, eligibility requirements deadlines, how to obtain Official Rules, and void where prohibited) If you are concerned about legal issues related to your sweepstakes, consult with an attorney specializing in sweepstakes and promotions law. Signal is happy to recommend one to you. safari_vacation, via Flickr
