Client Testimonials

This is our second time using Contest Factory, the first was a spin to win game, where travel agents and the chance to spin a wheel for prizes, it was a great way to engage travel agents and they enjoyed spinning and winning! The second time and most recent was a contest/sweepstakes, where consumers could submit an essay or create a video of where in the world they want to go, why they want to go there and who do they want by their side. It was a huge success and in addition there was an added weekly sweepstakes to keep it active and engaging. The team at Contest Factory were there every step of the way, with ideas, suggestions and to ensure that everything runs smoothly and timely. They are super-efficient and always accessible. They are very in tune with our needs and our company expectations. It was seamless and smooth, start to finish. Contest Factory has exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend them!

A major thank you as the SpinZone Trade Show game was a huge success for Hyatt. We had two lines pouring outside of our pavilion as everyone wanted a chance to SPIN, the energy was high and incredible… Thank you again!

Nicole VaziriGlobal Sales Director, Hyatt

The Contest Factory team is great to work with; they communicate clearly and explain processes, options and opportunities well. The team contributed creative solutions to some of the stickier challenges of our project while we were planning. They were very responsive during the execution of our project and provided easy to understand status reports.

Bonnie SchirkMarketing Technologies Manager at Syngenta

From concept to execution, working with Contest Factory on the Goslings Rum ‘Selfie Yourself to Bermuda’ campaign was a pleasure. The team was proactive, provided deliverables on time, had extensive knowledge of what works for UGC and a deep understanding of contest & sweepstakes law. Working closely with our web development manger in the UK, they launched the contest site on our new platform without a hitch. Their willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty (without extra charges) was invaluable in helping us reach our goals for this campaign.

Laura BaughmanBrand Manager, Goslings Rum

Contest Factory was a great partner for us in developing an engaging and successful promotion for our client. They won the contract based on price, but the attention to detail and and accessibility during the entire process is why we’ll gladly be working with them in the future. Through thoughtful planning, precise execution and really unbeatable post-launch support we were able to deliver an experience that exceeded benchmarks across the board.

We have worked with Contest Factory for over 4 years, and they have always been light years ahead of any other contest provider in terms of innovation, cost and service. They understand viral marketing, user-generated content and how to fuse the best of online and offline worlds better than anyone. I recommend them very highly indeed.

Thanks SO MUCH for all your hard work on our SpinZone campaign before and during SXSW! It was such a fantastic event, I think I’m safe to speak for the whole team when I say we want to do it all over again very soon. Let’s follow up soon to talk about a potential ongoing SpinZone partnership!

Ian WoodsVP eCommerce & Interactive Marketing, NET10

PeopleReady partnered with Contest Factory and utilized their SpinZone attendee engagement tool to help generate brand awareness and both traffic at the largest Power Generation Trade Show in the world. Over the 3-day event, over 700 people played our Vespa sweepstakes game, and over 100 people crowded our booth for the grand prize announcement. The SpinZone tool worked perfectly! About 30% of visitors were pre-qualified as leads requiring immediate follow up from our sales teams. We are expecting at least a 10x first year ROI from the event. Special thanks to the entire Contest Factory team for making the process easy and seamless from beginning to end. The team took a listen-first approach, then helped bring our vision to life. They were accessible 24/7, including at peak show hours to ensure SpinZone performed as promised. If creative attendee engagement is part of your trade show marketing plan, make sure your first call is to Contest Factory!
