National Sweepstakes

Recurring Revenue

Now more than ever, it’s important to have consistent income all year long. This is one of the most efficient ways to sell. You sell the campaign one time, and you have checks coming in every month – freeing your sales team up to sell other sponsorships.

Prioritize Recurring Revenue Campaigns

Advertiser Showcases

Pulling together multiple sweepstakes for multiple advertisers all under one roof gives these businesses all the benefits of a large campaign, while still providing them with the personalized lead-gen results they’re looking for. Maximizing your advertiser’s experience and your revenue.
