Rafflepress is a contest giveaway plugin for WordPress that helps you increase your email list, traffic and social media following.
Create, fully customizable viral contest where people win by promoting you and your business.
Rafflepress allows you to create contest giveaways for a product that can something as simple as a t-shirt up to the license for some expansive piece of software.
You can create these contests from scratch or use the plugin’s many templates that are separated into their main goals, be it “grow my email list”, or “Refer-a-Friend Viral Contest”.
The page builder works on drag and drop mechanics, making building the homepage for your giveaways a very quick and straight to the point process.
With the contest editor you can set the background image, or video and add text explaining contest rules along with any auxiliary media.
As you might expect, you also determine how long the contest will last, the submission requirements and what the conditions for winning the prize are.
These can be not only submitting an email address, but also following and engaging you on social media or simply sharing your link with a friend.
Rafflepress also has anti-fraud procedures to ensure people can only subscribe once and that all contestants are actual human beings.
The winner is not necessarily selected by random chance either, you can set a points system that rewards people for their engagement, or arbitrarily pick them yourself.
Subscription can be set up to be mandatory or not and integrated into most email service providers, including autoresponders, so you can passively grow your email list.
It also keeps track of clicks and engagement reporting on how successful the context you set is being in real time.
Contests are a great way to promote your site or a product because of how easily it creates false scarcity.
In other words, even though everyone can have the prize, the fact you are giving it away for free acts as an incentive for people to compete for it, which you can cleverly use to your advantage with Rafflepress.
It also saves a great deal of time and money that you would spend manually promoting your business with things like SEO and email marketing.
So if you are looking for strategies to increase your traffic or expand your email list, there is no better tool than Rafflepress.
