Likelihood to Recommend

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

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!

ViralSweep 10.0
Based on 2 answers
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

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.

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.
