Text to win is a term used for sweepstakes or contests that are run entirely through text messaging. People enter text to win contests by texting a special keyword to a 5 or 6 digit number called a short code.
Text sweepstakes have become increasingly popular as people are plugged into their mobile devices more than ever before. Text message engagement is higher than any other communication channel which makes SMS contests a no-brainer.
Throughout your contest or when it ends, our software will automatically select the winner(s) at random and send them a text blast with your winning message. If you'd like to choose the winner's yourself, we offer that option as well. Additionally, you can send a text to the losers if that fits in with your promotion strategy.
The best part is that the entire processes runs on its own once set up. Whether you're looking to run a one time text to win sweepstakes or want to kick off a new SMS marketing program with a contest, our service is the perfect solution for you.
