Small businesses can only grow organically (word of mouth) or through marketing. Without either or both, they run out of cash.
We understand your need to grow. Obtaining repeat, loyal customers starts with a marketing list of email addresses and SMS text messaging contacts. This can all be possible with targeted marketing through digital promotions — Sweepstakes, Contests, Events, Raffles & Instant Win giveaways. By giving away a prize, you can learn a lot about your customers and prospects. Data is king. Once you have it, we can help you use it to make offers and increase sales. CliquePrize is here to guide you to growth.

Security of Online Forms
Hosting a promotion on your own website has its risks as well. Most small businesses websites can get easily hacked. Since CliquePrize is hosted by Azure, our promotions are nearly 100% secure. Contestant's personal data is at risk otherwise.
Convenience Equals More Entries
Is there an easy way to capture leads? Yes. CliquePrize is here to help you offer the quickest and easiest way for Contestants to enter. One click and the Contestant is in. There's no need for Contestants to fill out long online forms and its all accessible from an iPhone. This means less friction and more entries per promotion.
Yes your location matters but so does the location of your customers. If you run a promotion and anyone can enter from outside the local area, you are essentially wasting time and resources. CliquePrize is local by design. We do our best to ensure every Contestant is vetted and local. We map each market to the nearest metro area within a 30 mile radius.
How It Works 7 Steps to Generating Qualified Local Leads
Create a Sponsor Account
Create a Sponsor account and get verified as a small business which includes a FREE Bullseye! business listing.
Pick A Prize Giveaway
As a Sponsor, you are responsible to giveaway and fulfill a prize to the winner when you host a Giveaway (Sweepstakes). For example, a FREE Offer for TWO! Think of something your customers would want to win from you. The better the prize, the more Entrants you'll receive.
Purchase a Base Package Upfront
Pick a base package from our Platinum Coin Giveaway (Sweepstakes) series such as one-time Private (invite-only), one-time Public or recurring monthly Subscription (either Private or Public) plans.
Create A Promotion & Upload Your Assets
Upload your assets (logo & background) or use one of our 45+ templates across all of our Small Business categories such as Bars & Restaurants, Salons, Karate schools, Kennels, Lawncare and many more!
Summarize the Prize, the Rules & the Terms
Upload your own Giveaway (Sweepstakes) Summary, Rules and Privacy/Terms or use ours. You can even edit ours to customize them to your liking. Be transparent about what the prize is, the start and end date and how you plan to use the Entrants information for marketing.
Host A Public or Private Promotion
Based on the Coin Package you purchased, you are now ready to host a promotion. Public promotions reach everyone in the local metro area. Private promotions are invite-only based on email address. If you already have an email list to notify or wish to print a PDF poster for your store with a custom QR code and 4 digit code, we'll supply it for you free of charge. This way only your own list or customers will enter.
Post Promotion Next Steps
After your promotion is over, you first must fulfill either the digital (QR code) or physical (sent via a major delivery carrier) prize to the winner. Either way, you can use QR codes to track prize fulfillment. Then, you have the option of buying all the Entrant records starting at $1/record. A target marketing list is essential to any small business. Be sure to always provide a way to opt-out of your marketing.
FAQ's Questions You're Asking
Why is this app called CliquePrize? What does it mean?
It's honestly a play on words. Rather than Click Prize, we see our promotions as always being local and exclusive to a community - much like a Clique. Sometimes, our mobile app handles the hosting of Private Promotions on an invite-only basis. Those are even more selective as only invited Contestants can enter. Regardless, it only takes 1 click to win a Sweepstakes (if chosen) and the idea was to make entering promotions fun and easy but also local. Not only will the Contestant odds increase since the Promotions aren't national, but the prizes will also come from you (the Sponsor - a local business in the area) that the Contestants (i.e. potential Customers) care about and want to win from.
What’s the point of running Promotions on CliquePrize? How will this help my business?
Lead generation. Today, its difficult to grow your business the old way – i.e. word of mouth and print ads. We understand your need to giveaway something to create awareness of your business. But more importantly, we understand your need to learn about your customers and their wants/desires. Ideally we'd like to help partner with you to have a digital marketing campaign running at all times.
The best part about CliquePrize is it is local. We only display your promotion based on the nearest Metro area by Zip code. That means your promotion is mostly seen by local Contestants. These are potential customers of your business. Not people from all over the country. Treat them as such. Survey them. Learn as much as you can. Data is king and the more data you collect the more optimal your marketing will be. This will result in lower customer acquisition costs as a result of more efficient Bullseye! Targeting – which in the end will grow your business.
How much does CliquePrize cost me?
To get started, it’s FREE to create a Sponsor Account & Bullseye! Listing. Reserve your username (handle) before other businesses do. So you don’t have to pay anything for a free listing. After you create a Sponsor account and get verified, just simply go to Settings > My Bullseye! Page and complete your Public facing Bullseye! Directory listing. This will at least give potential customers an idea of who you are and what you are selling.
When you are ready, there's a base fee to give away a prize via a promotion.
The base fee is collected upfront through the App Store. Starting at $99 for a one-time Private Sweepstakes to $399 for a one-time Public Sweepstakes. Monthly subscriptions are $199/month. With Monthly Subscriptions you can run either Public or Private. Its your choice. Once per month.
In addition, if you want Entrant (Contestant) records, you can purchase a data plan (starting at $1/record) times the number of records after your promotion has ended. You will never pay for the same Contestant record twice. This is emailed to you after the Promotion has ended via a link to an .csv file and paid for by Invoice via Stripe.com. Contestant records will only include First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Mobile number, and Zip code. However, if you run a survey you will get survey responses but you will not know which exact Contestant answered which question. You’ll just see the total responses.
What am I (the Sponsor) legally responsible for?
You are legally responsible for paying for the promotion upfront and fulfilling the prize you advertise in your CliquePrize promotion – exactly as is. You are not obligated to buy Contestant data. That is optional. However, you cannot legally bait and switch the Contestant. In other words, you cannot for example offer 2 tickets to a show but give them a pack of gum instead. The only time you can switch the prize advertised is if you are giving away a prize of equal value to the original prize and the Contestant agrees it is a fair swap of prizes. The Contestant can hold you (not CliquePrize) legally liable for not fulfilling the original prize advertised.
How do I fulfill a digital prize?
Once a Contestant wins a prize and visits your store, office or place of business, open the CliquePrize app and your Sponsor account. Click on Fulfill and find the promotion that has ended. Then, choose a winner and select winner(s). Once the winner arrives at your business, ask the winning Contestant to show you the QR code of their winning entry on their phone. On the very next screen, you will see a QR code scanner. Scan the winning Contestant’s QR code with your phone. Voila. The prize has been recorded as fulfilled. If the giveaway was a free dinner for TWO, for example, simply go to your register and manually discount the entire dinner for 2 people (including tax) to $0.
