Overall Satisfaction with Gleam

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.
  • Positive: Increased Social Follower Numbers
  • Negative: Not always "the right people"
It was a long time ago that I tried Rafflecopter, but I remember Gleam having better or more features than them.
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.

Do you think Gleam delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Gleam's feature set?

Yes

Did Gleam live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Gleam go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Gleam again?

Yes

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.
