I had a specific user case, whereby I am running a competition whose entry impinges on purchasing specific products. My goal is to increase seasonal sales (Christmas campaign), drive spend and grow our email list and social presence. I contacted the support team for guidance on how to set up this scenario, and although it was possible using existing modules, they created a custom option, bespoke to my needs. I cannot recommend them enough, as they are committed to grow customers in the e-commerce space. Give them a go if you want to increase sales on WooCommerce and grow your online brand!

Super easy to use with tons of social integrations. The leads and followers that we attracted through Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and the newsletter helped us reach a wider audience. We highly recommend this app to anyone looking to run a contest.

We were able to run a successful pre-launch campaign! Our goal was to increase IG followers, FB engagement, and newsletter subscribers prior to the official launch of our website. We wanted to garner enough interest for when to do the actual website launch. We got over 1,500 email sign-ups, and 2k IG and FB followers respectively. We are thrilled with the results and are already planning another SweepWidget giveaway for after the official launch!

If a contestant has their own domain, it will likely block them saying “This entry has been flagged by our anti-spam system. (31)”. The developer’s solution on their site: “If you’re using an uncommon email provider, try entering with a more common email address like Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo, or other major providers.” What if you don’t have any of those or don’t want to use those email services. We have our own and prefer to use it because it is our domain, our emails, and is under our control and not riddled with privacy issues. So I am sure the contestants out there will feel the same. That solution isn’t a solution. It’s dancing around the question to avoid having to fix a glitch that is clearly hampering the plugin/service.
