Likelihood to Recommend

Gleam

Gleam is a great way to connect with a broader audience and be discovered by new people who otherwise may never hear of your brand. If your promotion is picked up by the sweepstakes sites and communities, there's a chance that the people drawn to your brand won't be the right ones, but Gleam is a wonderful solution for driving up your social follower numbers.

ViralSweep

If my colleague needed an easily accessible, user-friendly platform for hosting internal and external contests, sweepstakes, giveaways, or promotions, then I would 100% recommend ViralSweep to them. Running multiple contests can be a huge task, especially in the case of my company, where we only have one dedicated person (me) to make sure the prize winners are selected and paid out. ViralSweep makes it so easy to manage contest winners and email addresses to add to our send list!

Cons

Gleam

  • I've used both the paid and free plans; maybe add at least the header image option to the free plan.
  • Integrate deeper into certain social channels, like Instagram, to allow people to click follow right on the form.

ViralSweep

  • Viralsweeps has a few options I would like, such as Hashtag Entry Collection, but I'd have to upgrade
  • Filtering invalid entries can be a pain and easily forgotten

Their support is fine. I remember the one time promising an upcoming feature that I don't think ever got implemented, but it wasn't a huge deal. I haven't had a lot of interaction with their support team.

I typically am requesting assistance from the purple chat bubble in the lower right corner of the dashboard, but Giancarlo always answers me quickly when I need problems solved while setting up different campaigns/projects. They are very straightforward and to the point and know exactly how to navigate this platform.

Alternatives Considered

Gleam

It was a long time ago that I tried Rafflecopter, but I remember Gleam having better or more features than them.

ViralSweep

I really did like Woobox, but its interface is a bit too unprofessional and fun to me. It's exported email list reports were also a little wonky sometimes. ViralSweep labels every entry with a name, email, IP address, selection chosen from a drop-down, date, and more! It just depends on what information you've requested your customers to provide to you. ViralSweep's overall look, feel, and purpose blows away Woobox.

Return on Investment

Gleam

  • Positive: Increased Social Follower Numbers
  • Negative: Not always "the right people"

ViralSweep

  • In 2019, ViralSweep entries grew our email list over 10k.
  • Using ViralSweep has helped to spread our contests to sweepstakes sites all over the U.S.
