Three ideas for your next competition

Various competitions

Looking for a fresh competition that will stir up your customers, infuriate your competitors and increase your sales?

Here are three out-of-the-box ideas for your next promotion.

1. Ongoing rewards and a chance to win Big! The best way to run a competition is to keep it going and to keep giving. Many of the most successful competitions we have seen give away small prizes such as DVDs, event tickets, and cash on a weekly or monthly basis. A blanket permit allows you to run a number of competitions with smaller prize pools over 12 months. On key dates, to coincide with product launches, or events, you can then obtain individual permits to give away larger prizes.

2. Instant win! An instant win competition gives entrants an immediate sense of winning, can encourage multiple purchases and allows you to award prizes to multiple winners.

Instant win promotions need to reward continual participation by your entrants. Ensure that you give a large number of prizes and a smaller number of large prizes. Your minor prizes could be discounts or free products or services that you offer.

3. A chance at a Million Dollars! A million dollar prize pool does not need to cost you a million dollars. Prize insurance allows you to offer prizes in the order of $100,000, $500,000 or one million dollars for a fraction of the total prize value. Such a competition gives a winner the chance to win a large prize. Typically, you would draw one entrant who then attends an event where they are required to pick an envelope out of a possible hundred. One envelope may contain a million dollar cheque whilst the others contain a consolation prize. No matter which envelop your winner picks, they walk away happy.
