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 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 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 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 barcode 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 (barcode) or physical (sent via a major delivery carrier) prize to the winner. Either way, you can use barcodes 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 are 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. You need to giveaway something to create awareness of your business. But more importantly, you need to learn about your customers and their wants/desires. Ideally you should 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, 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, give away a prize via a promotion.
There’s a base fee upfront for running a promotion. 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 barcode of their winning entry on their phone. On the very next screen, you will see a Barcode scanner. Scan the winning Contestant’s barcode 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.
