Set Up Your Campaign

  • Create your official rules by uploading your own or using our Official Rules Wizard

And then you’re ready to go with our platform. After your campaign is in progress, you can use our campaign data reports to track the success of your sweep. With text marketing compliance and tight security baked in, our instant win text sweeps platform is the most powerful way to launch your campaign.

Selecting the Winner(s)

Next it’s time to choose the winners. With our platform, you can auto-pick instant winners based on number of entries (every 100 entries) or schedule a date and time to randomly draw one instant winner. The auto-pick solution will save you time if you have to pick multiple winners for different prizes.

If you’re offering one big grand prize, scheduling a date to choose an instant winner makes for a hands-off solution so that you don’t have to manually select a winner on your own.

However, you can also use a combination of both methods for selecting winners if you’re offering both smaller prizes and a grand prize for your instant-win sweep. bd’s Mongolian Grill used this strategy when they ran an instant win text sweep through Sweeppea to mark their 25th anniversary.

The company offered a grand prize trip to the Caribbean for a single instant winner while offering 2nd through 5th place prizes, as well as, daily instant-win prizes.

As a bonus hint for setting up a successful instant win text sweepstakes, make sure that you have plenty of prizes available. When your subscribers believe that they have a fair chance of winning because there are many prizes available, they’ll be more likely to sign up.
