“The featureset is so vast, we use Viralsweep for dozens of applications”

OverallIt's simply the best for tracking and excluding fraudulent users who typically game promotional giveaways.
ProsThere isn't a software package out there that lets you quickly create collaborative campaigns as easily as viralsweep. We've been using this software for 2+ years and across 40+ projects. Support is the absolute best.
ConsDepending on the campaign type, the overall user interface is a bit rigid, but it's optimized for that campaigns particular goal and it just works.

“When Growth is the Strategy”

OverallViralSweep allows me the opportunity to help my clients grow their subscriber list substantially through different marketing channels. It also drives website traffic to specific pages and helps create engagement. Other benefits I receive from using ViralSweep include ease of use, variety, customizable, works great with WordPress and Facebook, and the service is impeccable -- I have received immediate responses from Giancarlo, who is always kind and willing to help.
ProsThe thing I like most about ViralSweep --- it generates excellent results. I have tried many others, including Wishpond and Woobox, and ViralSweep stands head and shoulders above those competitors.
ConsI wish there were more flexibility in creating a custom landing page with graphics and other copy. I would also like if it created a white-labeled report with the ability to customize pages of the report and add graphics.

“Great, simple option for contests and sweepstakes”

OverallOverall we love this platform and recommend it constantly. They provide great support when we need help.
ProsViralsweep makes it really easy to launch and manage a sweepstakes. They've got great built-in features for increasing entries by enabling users to earn more chances to win by referring friends. We use it a lot to increase social following for our clients by allowing people to earn more entries by following on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. As a marketer I love they that have Facebook pixel, Google Analytics, and other tracking technology implemented so I can see what advertising I'm running is driving results.
ConsWhile the simplicity of setup is great most of the time, I do wish there was some more advanced options for customizing more intricate campaigns. I would love to be able to create full screen immersive campaigns with things like "what kind of X are you" type quizzes. Also, would love to be able to customize a subdomain and short link.

“Best bang for your buck”

OverallSignificant cost savings from previous provider. Support/onboarding from executive has been great. Great integrations and willingness from VS to add more integrations.
ProsEase of use Unlimited monthly sweeps Integrations (specifically tracking Leads through FB pixel) Customer support Sales tracking Great analytics
ConsStandalone URLs aren't "pretty" When exporting photos, it's hard to match up with individual users - would be cool if the file name was the persons email address or some other identifier

“ViralSweep is Just What We Needed for Contests, Sweepstakes and Giveaways! ”

OverallViralSweep is a great software for running contests, submitting entry forms and collecting emails. I love that we're able to export the winning names and emails into an Excel file to send to my Email Specialist for our sends. Also, I really love that rep, with customer support, always responds within 30 mins, which is just fine because I typically plan our contests ahead, leaving time to hash out issues with the ViralSweep team before it launches.
ProsMy company, sells custom window treatments online, but we also frequently attend home shows around the country to promote our product and upcoming sales. With ViralSweep, I was easily able to set up a simple entry for all of the dates on "tour" and award (1) entrant from each show super easily! Only thing I would recommend to add is a random number generator for winner selection, so users wouldn't be leaving your site to search for one on Google.
ConsNot a huge deal but it would be nice to have more theme options without having to upgrade from the starter package.

“New but very satisfied ViralSweep user”

ProsIt's very intuitive & easy to use with alot of customizable features and features that I haven't seen in other platforms. It is also aesthetically pleasing and able to be customized to match just about any client's style.
ConsThere aren't alot of cons that I've experiences so far, but no matter what platform you're using there will always be small things that a client requests that you aren't able to do. With ViralSweep, the only things like this that I've noticed so far are controlling the size of the text in the extra content block on the entry form, and adding an underline to certain parts of text in the rules agreement and newsletter agreement lines.

“The only sweeps software we use”

OverallExcellent overall experience. The team at VS is super responsive to any needs.
ProsThe ease of use and functionality/stability of VS is so important to use. We run sweepstakes constantly and not having to recreate complex marketing programs each time is important to us.
ConsComparatively, the price is a little high as we have tested and used others in the past but the price isn't high enough that I would be willing to switch,

“Great Tool to Gain Followers and Content ”

OverallI am able to host a giveaway and meet several KPIs: follower, email, content and engagement growth. I used Viral Sweep at my previous company as well.
Pros-Ease of use: the platform is pretty straightforward and easy for any team to understand, set up and implement -Great value: for the variety of goals available, Viral Sweep has been great. -Customizable- I like that the product is customizable and can be integrated onto our website
Cons-Missing functions: I have had to "hack" some of the plugins to achieve some of the goals I wanted because the functions were not available like "follow us on instagram" I would just change the text to say that so they thought they has to follow to get an additional entry but really I had no way to track it. Its ok though, I still see value.

“Great program, easy to use.”

OverallSo far it has been a great experience, customer service is very quick and helpful. I will continue to use Viralsweep for all our contests.
ProsEasy to set up and use, love the option of getting bonus points for whatever we like (really like that we can ask questions and receive answers).
ConsWe use this in-store as well.... and it was complicated to allow the stores to sign-up the customers themselves as it was always the same IP address.

“Robust & Simple”

OverallWe run weekly giveaways with ViralSweep, and bigger events a few times a year. We've found it to have more options than many other sweeps tools at a better price. Overall, I've run into only very few things that we can't do with it!
ProsLots of options for giveaways and referrals
ConsSetup can be a little confusing/long until you get used to it

“Most user friendly giveaway platform!”

ProsThings I found easiest to use about this software are the templates for so many different promotion types, integration of existing software from email to analytics & how easy it was to customize it. The customer support is also very responsive & helpful!
ConsSome of the options we would like to further customize our promotions aren't built into this software. It would be nice to be able to have more leeway in how certain options appear.

“First Impressions”

OverallI have doubled my email subscriber list in a month. I do not know the value of the additional emails collected but I tried to give away a product that my shoppers would like therefore they are potential shoppers. As I do more of these I am sure I will better know the long term benefits and can comment again.
ProsI really like the integration flexibility with social media and other applications especially Klayvio. I have collected over 1000 new subscribers to my newsletter in a month doing a single giveaway which is something I wish to repeat monthly. The set up is easy and it's easy to manage. I will be doing our first drawing on the 1st of September and it's literally a click of a button.
ConsI think there are a few things that I would like to see upgraded. I think that the basic package should have Facebook Pixel and Google Analytics integration as a Standard. Those are basic basic things that would definitely provide value. The jump in price to get those two things (which is all I would want) is just too steep. I also think the page layout for the image files is weird. It would be better to have a single column with the image at top or bottom then a smaller picture and a right column that extends off-page just bad overall graphic design ( I am a designer so just giving my opinion. ) Finally, One thing I didn't understand is in my analytics reports I am seeing a ton of traffic driven by ViralSweep? How is this happening? Do you promote the contest or is it because of a redirect that I am seeing it? It would be nice to see or know what that is.

“Great for Lead Generation & Customer Engagement”

ProsWe utilize ViralSweep weekly and have found it to be an excellent tool for lead generation as well as for engaging our customers. We produce events that occur once per year and use ViralSweep to make sure our customers are engaged year-round and keep our events top-of-mind, even in the offseason.
ConsI have not had any negative experiences with ViralSweep.

“Best value, most features”

ProsI most liked the ability to host the sweepstakes on my own website, and embed into a landing page we created. I also liked the various options customers have to earn additional entries into the sweepstakes by answering questions or visiting social media profiles. It's also really easy to pick a winner.
ConsI wish there was an option to earn additional entries for sharing the sweepstakes on social media. I also don't like that they are not able to verify that someone liked or followed a social media profile, and provide entries just for visiting. Apparently this is because you can't incentivize FB or IG likes, but it's hard for me to tell if it's tracking YouTube subscribers either.

“The best tool to get viral engagement”

OverallWe are really satisfied with this tool. It's easy to use and it generates good results.
ProsI like that we can connect this app to our Sendy newsletter software. With this option we can manage a whole marketing drip campaign. And the bonus entries for social actions are really boosting our social channel numbers and engagement.
ConsThe price difference between the regular account and the premium is steep. No access to referral stats unless you pay for the premium. Also, no visual customization option on the basic account too.

“Powerful audience building tool”

ProsAfter running dozens of giveaways as an audience-building strategy for multiple brands, I've found ViralSweep to be the best software to administrate them. It is equal parts powerful yet easy to set up. The one time I had an issue with my ESP integration, their support helped me promptly, coordinated with my ESP, and followed up.
ConsIf ViralSweep had more design and layouts options, like multiple templates, it would be appreciated, but it is certainly not an impediment to use.

ProsThis software is simple to use and helps us increase engagement with social posts. We have seen great interest our products by using ViralSweep and will continue to use this for sweepstakes and giveaways in the future.

“Great product for launching quick sweeps, doesn't seem to work in all cases”

ProsI like how easy it is to have a WYSIWYG interface to create a sweepstakes. But this simplicity can also lead to some pitfalls with regard to sweepstakes regulation. It's "too easy" to create a sweepstakes, and that could lead to some employees making mistakes with regard to compliance.
ConsThe webhooks did not work for us. They are well-tested, so I'm not sure what went wrong.

“Pretty good platform for hosting contests”

ProsI loved the design and visual customization options. It was also easy to create a disclaimer and embed.
ConsI wasn't a huge fan of having to pay more to use certain customization options.

“The Best Software we've used ”

ProsLove using ViralSweep - super simple and easy to navigate - I love how the interfacing looks when all is said and done. Clean professional presentation! Love that you can add point for IG follows / FB, Reviews etc.
ConsA LOT to look at the first time you're running a sweep but once you've done it once its easy to navigate.
