The Rivet Sweepstakes Program provides you an incredibly easy method for incentivizing the submission of customer-generated content. As the sponsor, we manage and administer everything while you receive up to 10 times the number of submissions (compared to when no incentive is present).
Here’s how the sweepstakes program works:
- You opt in by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be included in the program, e.g., “I’d like to join Rivet’s Sweepstakes Program.”
- Any consumer contributing content on the Rivet platform through participating merchants is eligible for the monthly prize drawing.
- The prize, such as a $100 Visa gift card, is delivered to a monthly winner.
It’s really that simple!
What does it cost?
Nothing. We are offering this service to you at no additional charge.
You’ve made this really easy for me, but why else would I do this?
You may want to become less dependent upon discounting, and your current options for incentivizing submissions are coupons or organizing your own sweepstakes, which can be expensive and time consuming.
How do I get started?
Simply send an email to email@example.com with a note that says “I’d like to join Rivet’s Sweepstakes Program.” Our Customer Success team will implement a few minor changes to your content request emails and your collection experience to promote the “chance to win."
Example content request email:
What if I’m already offering an incentive?
You have a few options. You can continue to offer your incentive, such as your coupon, and ADD the gift card giveaway. Or, you can remove your incentive and move forward with only the Rivet-ran sweepstakes.
Are all of my customers who submit eligible for the drawing each month?
Only the customers who submit content in the calendar month are eligible for that calendar month’s drawing. They must be legal US residents and at least 18 years old, too.
What if I want to opt-out of the program in the future?
Though we don’t anticipate a reason to opt-out, should the need arise, no worries. Just shoot a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove you from the program.
What if I want to promote the sweepstakes outside of Rivet's automated process?
We encourage you to promote the sweepstakes anywhere you are asking your customers to contribute content. This may include a call-to-action in your own email marketing, or a post on your social pages, which will be considered advertisements. We recommend that you include a disclaimer with any advertisement for the sweepstakes. Here is an example of the disclaimer language we use in the automated content request email, which is considered an advertisement:
