Sweepstakes

A high-value sweepstakes is the perfect opportunity for bridal stores to attract brides-to-be. This sweepstakes by WPSD in Paducah, KY in particular offered a $300 gift card to Anne’s Bridal in Paducah to use towards the purchase of wedding attire, as well as a $250 credit towards rental equipment and $500 off at The Grand Lodge.

Advertisers will surely get leads out of this engagement campaign if you include an email opt-in, given that only those who need a dress will enter to win.
