I've used Gleam for many years to help to generate new followers on social media and gather contacts' info through contest entries. It's an easy-to-use platform that has a lot of features and lets you connect it with a wide variety of social channels to help extend your brand's reach while offering a giveaway or contest.
- Good design
- Easy to customize
- 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.
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.

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.
