Universities and other educational institutions have limited ways in which they can promote products and services. They need, therefore, to maximize the opportunities they have in order to engage people on campus and get them interested, such as holding contests and giveaways. However, physically managed contests can get messy on a campus that can include thousands of potential participants.
A digital solution can help by streamlining this process using communication automation along with personalized use case solutions.
Introducing the Contests & Giveaways use case, a complete solution for promoting and operating contests and giveaways on campus from the initial registration to the winner announcement.
The solution is intended to be leveraged by contest administrators and contestants to ensure that contestants get the best experience possible. A well-run contest will encourage contestants to engage further, whether those contestants are students, staff, or community members.
The 4-Step Process
SimplyCast foresaw the need for a straightforward and easy to operate architecture that acts as an all-in-one solution to challenges posed by other methods used for contests and giveaways.
The answer to these problems comes in four steps and how administrators and contestants interact with them.
Step 1 – Administrators
First, administrators set up a form with the contest’s details and entry requirements for collecting contestant data.
Step 2 – Contestants
When contestants sign up to participate in the contest, an automatic confirmation will be sent. Once it has been sent, a task will be created for the administrator to review the new contest entry.
Step 3 – Administrators
Once the contestants are reviewed and a winner is chosen, they can apply a tag to the winner’s profile in the contestant database. After that, the contestants can be notified that a decision has been made. For the winner, a personalized message of congratulations will be sent to them.
Step 4 - Administrators
Finally, reports can be reviewed to improve the contest process for next time or to help find new ways to approach parts of the process. Reports will also show you how contestants are engaging with your messages to provide a more detailed picture of what parts of the solution are already working well.
This process is just an example of a use case strategy that can answer complex problems by tackling them head-on with all-in-one communication automation.
