Partner with complementary brands

Find more customers by co-promoting your contest with another brand. It's a win-win situation for all parties involved.

Create a contest

Generate revenue using "milestone" rewards / coupons

Deliver coupon codes or free gifts for reaching milestones. For example, give $10 off for anyone who collects 150 entries in your giveaway. Then give a free gift with purchase at 400 entries. Unlockable coupon offers are shown to convert like crazy because you increase the perceived value of the offer.

Have questions? We have answers. You can also check our full FAQ.

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.

Do you integrate with X mailing list provider?

Currently we integrate with Mailchimp, Aweber, ConvertKit, Sendy, Klaviyo, ActiveCampaign, Sendlane, Autopilot, GetResponse, MailerLite, and Drip. You can also export to CSV after your contest is over, which we recommend.

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.

How does a contest look on mobile?

In this day and age, mobile has to be a priority. Our contests look amazing on mobile!

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. 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.

Can I run a contest on my own domain instead of

Our enterprise plan allows you to set a custom subdomain and removes VYPER branding from your contest landing page.

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.

Do you allow pixel tracking and/or Google Analytics?

Yes. Starting from our pro plan you'll be able to embed Google Analytics code as well as any pixel code (ie - Facebook pixel) to the contest.
