Text to Win Contests
Launch your own SMS contest.
What They Are
Text to win contests are an excellent way to engage with your customers or target audience. Everyone loves the opportunity to win something and running it all through a simple text message makes it even more fun.
How They Work
We make setting up and managing your contests extremely easy. We'll ask you a series of questions about how you want your sweepstakes to run and once those are set, our service handles the rest.
People join your contest with a simple text message. Each contest will have a keyword associated with it. When someone texts that word to your short code, they will be instantly entered for a chance to win. If they haven't already joined your text marketing program, they will also be opted into that as well. This makes for a great method to grow your subscriber base.
- Which keyword you want people to text
- When you want the contest to start and end
- How many winners you want to have
- What the auto response is for people who enter
- What the text message to the winners will say once the contest is complete
We also provide some advanced settings for those who really want to customize the experience for those who engage.
When the contest is complete, our system will automatically select the winner(s) at random and send them your winning text message. From your SlickText dashboard, you'll have access to live reports for your contests that give you insight into important information like how many people have entered, what the status of the sweepstakes are and who the winners were.
The best part is that the entire processes runs on its own once set up. Whether you're looking to run a one time sweepstakes or want to kick off a new text marketing program with a contest, our service is the perfect solution for you. Don't hesitate to reach out to our team with any questions you may have. You can also visit the contests area of our helpcenter for answers to common questions.View Our Full List Of Features
