Hey all. Managing bookvideoclub.com and we're about to run a contest as part of our mailing list growing efforts. I'm familiar with Kingsumo, but since we will be giving away 20 business books I'm interested in a service the probably incorporates a great landing page as well. Any ideas or suggestions? Big thanks

    You probably already heard of http://www.strutta.com/ - this is the most customizable platform you'll probably find.

    https://gleam.io/ is one that I've used as a consumer, not marketer, but I really like it.

    We've run successful contests using things like Social Lockers with a sign up form behind it (here'a free Wordpress plugin of one of these tools - https://wordpress.org/plugins/social-locker/).

    KingSumo is a popular one that's talked about, but when we've used it it hasn't gotten the same kind of traction I read about. The reason I don't like it as much is the incentive is to share after you sign up, and I'd rather have them need to share to sign up to guarantee getting the share.

    If you need a platform to run bilingual contests, like I do in Quebec, I've found www.woobox.com satisfactory.

    Hey there,

    A quick intro, I run Growth in Viral Loops(https://viral-loops.com/giveaways), our goal is to help people like you, run hassle-free viral & referral marketing campaigns and build viral loops in their products.

    We are template based and we offer 3 giveaway/sweepstake templates along with 2 referral marketing templates. We got inspired by successful company cases and we created templates based on these cases. For giveaways and sweepstakes we're offering:
    - The Leaderboard Giveaway, inspired by Viral Loops
    - The Sweepstake Giveaway, inspired by Mailchimp
    - Spread the E-book, inspired by Lemonstand

    The main difference here is that we focus on the viral factor a lot so all of our templates have sharing options, this means that your campaign participants have to share with friends in order to win more.
