Commentary by VYPER

  • What we really liked about this contest was the sleek design. The header was very easy to read, which is a problem we see with several contests that are running on our platform.
  • Make sure you promote the contest with both your current audience as well as new organic traffic — Facebook groups are amazing for finding new free traffic.
  • Reddit could’ve been a great source of traffic that they didn’t tap into.
  • The contest body was pretty short, but we didn’t mind it for this contest because the prize was pretty self explanatory.
  • Possibly could’ve been a better contest if they advertised the price of the bumper (depending on its cost).
  • Adding second place prizes would’ve helped.
  • Adding an opt-in bribe would’ve helped convert more customers (could’ve sent your users a coupon).
  • There was even an optional up-sell, which is pretty awesome.
