We’ve recently released 3 new themes, hand crafted by our design team and designed improve your conversion rates. Can’t wait to try them out for your campaign? Build your landing page now.
Let’s have a look at each to see how they can help get you more customers.
First up, we have Three Step… a new contest theme built using customer feedback we’ve received from successful campaigns. Customers follow your social channels, enter their email address, and then are prompted to share the contest. For example: A valid entry, your users would need to:
1) “Like” your company Facebook Page (or other social channels).
2) Add a valid email address.
3) Share the contest via social networks.
This great new theme will allow you to get a contest up and running in no time. Simply change the background image, upload your logo, enter some compelling copy and choose from unlimited color combinations. Three Step is optimized to help make your contests go viral. See a live preview here.
Here’s some additional tips to make sure you get the most from your contests (or any other campaign).
include remarkable pre-filled copy in the social share boxes so that as part of the entry, people share your message and link back to your contest page. It helps to write in a natural, conversational tone.
Offer an amazing prize that is relevant to your audience. Time and time again we’ve seen contests giving away something like an iPad or something. Sure that’s great and all, but does it provide real value to your audience? We think not. Spend time thinking about your users personas. What would motivate them to do business with you? Remember this: the higher quality the prize (not necessarily in $); the higher quality your leads will be.
Okay, we’ll say it flat out… you need to bribe people in order to get their email addresses. Maximize sign-up rate and extend your reach by offering a great incentive (that can be early access to a beta, an e-book, an infographic, etc.).
For choosing the winner, a random drawing is probably the least biased way, though you can always encourage sharing by offering a prize to the person with the most signup referrals. The goal here really is to leverage your current subscribers social network and reward the influencers.

Even if you weren’t thinking about running a contest any time soon. We highly recommend that you look into it as contests convert very well, and are a low-cost solution to growing and engaging your audience.
