A Sweepstakes is a type of promotion where people can enter for a chance to win a prize at the end of the promotion. Typically a person will enter their email address and other personal information to register for the Sweepstakes, and receive one entry into the drawing. Some Sweepstakes allow multiple entries from the same person to encourage more activity and page views, such as once per day. When the entry period is over, a winner is selected randomly out of all the entries received, and the winner receives his/her prize from the sponsor of the Sweepstakes. Sweepstakes must be free to enter to the public to avoid being deemed a lottery.
Sweepstakes are the most common type of promotions that businesses and brands utilize to engage their customers. They are a great way to build excitement, increase your brand awareness, drive traffic to your website, generate new leads for your future marketing campaigns, and increase customer loyalty.
