Rafflecopter

I'd say that Rafflecopter is a good tool for a basic giveaway. It doesn't seem like they've made any substantial changes in several years. If you're looking to host a one-off or occasional giveaway, Rafflecopter will do what you need it to do, but if a giveaway platform is a major component of your marketing strategy, look elsewhere.

ShortStack

ShortStack is great for agency use and has been a great tool to use for our clients. I can't speak for a smaller individual companies, but it has also been recommended to several clients who administer their own contests regularly

Pros

Rafflecopter

  • Rafflecopter helps to connect our business with our clients outside of clinic.
  • Rafflecopter allows the ability for our clients to spread the word about our clinic through our social media efforts.
  • Rafflecopter truly lets us see how successful we are with our clients, especially because if our patients were not truly satisfied with our services, then they would not want to take part in the giveaways and promotions that we run through Rafflecopter.

ShortStack

  • Flexible templates that can be modified to meet internal branding guidelines or can be used as a starting point to create completely new experiences.
  • Ability to embed any analytics tags to track conversions or retargeting tags.
  • Built with the marketer in mind, not the developer.

Cons

Rafflecopter

  • The ability to do multiple contests on the FB page, that are separate from one another. Or to have "special" type of contest that is useable for tradeshows. Whether or not the tradeshow contest is connected to FB.
  • Once our contest was up and running, we had a hard time figuring out how to get more people to our contest page. We have a small group [less than 200] and besides just posting on FB, we couldn't get others to our page/contest! Maybe more ideas on how to achieve this? I suspect the info is already somewhere on the Rafflecopter blog, I just need to find it.
  • The "More Upgrades' tag that vibrates at the bottom of the page from where you are working on your contest, gets annoying. I've bought the blogger level, please don't try to upgrade me further.
  • While this wasn't a fault of Rafflecopter, the winner of our first contest turned out to be a FB contester. Meaning the person uses FB exclusively to enter contests for give-aways and freebies. When we picked the winner, if I could have "vetted" the winner to prevent that, then I would have picked a different winner. Cherry picking our winner? You bet, cause this person wasn't ever going to be a customer…

  • If you are not using the contest feature regularly it can get pricey

I have only tried the free version of Rafflcopter so I do not have any experience using the paid version. My experience with the free version was wonderful and I continue to recommend it to anyone!

Alternatives Considered

Rafflecopter

Having used all three software platforms, I believe that both ShortStack and Woobox have surpassed Rafflecopter in terms of features set. It's been a few years since I've used Woobox and ShortStack so they may not be fully comparable any longer.

ShortStack

Shortstack is a niche product that does sweepstakes/contests very well. It is not as feature rich as ion interactive, which can produce any type of experiences (DR landing pages, squeeze pages, content marketing pages, etc.) that one can dream up, but what it does (sweepstakes/contests), it does very well.
