Questions About Viral Sweepstakes & Viral Leaderboards
Contests are known to produce great numbers, but don’t you get a lot of bad emails who just want your freebie?
That’s a fair concern and there are a lot of elements that affect the quality of your emails. For example, if you offer a Macbook Pro and you’re a blog for moms, you’re going to get a lot of emails that aren’t right for you.
On the other hand, if you offer a very specific item that only moms want, then your contestants will be much more high value. There are many other factors that affect engagement, and we discuss this a lot in our blog.
How does your system prevent contestants from cheating the system?
We have a proprietary cheating algorithm that detects cheaters and prevents them from being chosen when you go to pick the winners. You can also view an entrants referals, lead qualtiy and get a “cheater score” to help determin if they should be removed from your giveaway.We don’t reveal our algorithm
We don’t reveal our algorithm publicly, because if we did it would make it that much easier to game our system. We pride ourselves in being one of the most advanced cheating detection systems for contest software out there.
Which mailing list providers do you intergrate with?
Currently we integrate with Mailchimp, Aweber, ConvertKit, Sendy and Drip. You can also export to CSV after your contest is over, which we recommend. We’re working on a Zapier integration next so you can plug yourself into many different email providers.
How does a contest look on mobile?
In this day and age, mobile has to be a priority. Our contests look amazing on mobile!
Can your contest software help me get Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter followers?
Yes! After a contestant enters, they’re given the option to like or follow your social media pages.
Does this work even if I have zero audience?
Viral contests work no matter your audience size. If you have no audience, you just have to get creative with how you initially “seed” your contest. In our blog we go in-depth with how you can seed your contest list and see the viral growth.
Can I run a contest on my own domain instead of vyper.io?
Our Enterprise plan allows you to set a custom subdomain and removes VYPER branding from your contest landing page.
