Halloween Sweepstakes Grand Prize Ideas

Some simple ideas to get you started when you think about a grand prize for your holiday sweepstakes.

Party Decor- Set them up with either a gift card to a party/ home goods store or send them festive decor to show off for their Halloween. Make this attainable with a simple “enter, share, win” contest.

Store gift card- Sometimes it is easiest to just go with a gift card! You can of course, make it as simple as money to spend in your store, but if you want to stay holiday themed; opt for a party, oddities, or even a local grocery store so they can really make the most of choosing their own items.

An activity- If this is a local giveaway or if you want to go big by offering a full trip, there are plenty of options. Give them tickets to a fall festival, spooky hay ride, haunted house, or dinner experience. If this does not have to be local, choose something that relates to your brand or fits the holiday theme, such as a trip to Salem for Halloween weekend. Have them complete actions to win. Consider adding a fun social aspect by having them share their best Halloween photos and tag you for bonus points!

Halloween Themed Rewards Any Lead can Earn

If you are running a milestone rewards contest, opt for a big prize and then choose some smaller things like discounts or branded items. If you plan to have multiple winners, mix and match these options- choose a higher-value grand prize, and either multiple smaller prizes of similar value or create a prize tier.

At the end of the day, a Halloween contest is a great way to engage with your audience and (boo)st your lead generation in a fun and simple way. Your audience will love a chance to win and celebrate, you will grow your brand and potentially kick off sales generation for the holiday season- a Hallowin-win for everyone!
