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.

Wishpond

It's a great platform if you're looking for something to run contests that provide leads and drive user engagement, but if they also incorporated social media management and scheduling, Wishpond would be a 10 by far. It's definitely worth looking into specifically for running contests throughout the year, for a wide variety of companies and industries.

Pros

Gleam

  • Good design
  • Easy to customize
John DiBiase | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wishpond

  • Very small learning curve, thanks to wonderful real-time tutorials and help, and drag-and-drop editors.
  • Easy to navigate - there are only 3 main sections of the site (content, lists, and emails).
  • Excellent customer service. I've always gotten prompt answers to any questions I've had.
Kristina Derby | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Wishpond

  • The drag and drop features can be a bit finicky, but nothing that hinders successfully creating campaigns.

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.

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

Close.io Is a little bit trickier to figure out. I use both.

Return on Investment

Gleam

  • Positive: Increased Social Follower Numbers
  • Negative: Not always "the right people"
John DiBiase | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wishpond

  • We saw a high ROI in terms of new followers on our Facebook pages as a result of the contests we ran, going up by an average of 100 followers per contest.
  • We also saw more followers on our other social platforms while contests were running, with an average of 25 additional followers on our Instagram and Twitter accounts that could be tied to the contests.
  • Finally, we also saw an uptick in tickets purchased for the next event around our contests, going up an average of 5%.
