Elliance Launches Revolutionary Sweepstakes Tool for DIY Marketers

June 12, 2006

Until now, online sweepstakes have been a secret weapon used by large corporations to increase customer acquisition, engagement and involvement. By creating ennectSweeps, Elliance levels the playing field between enterprise corporations, who could always afford to run sweepstakes, and smaller firms interested in an inexpensive DIY approach.

With ennectSweeps, an organization of any size is empowered to quickly and inexpensively tackle critical issues in customer service, sales, marketing and product development.

For example, this tool empowers companies to easily gather marketing research at four times the speed and a quarter of the cost of traditional methods. It gives sales executives a quick way to build prospect lists based on demographics. By using ennectSweeps, companies can measure the consideration for purchase and price elasticity before taking a product to market. In addition, ennectSweeps can strengthen customer relationships by providing an incentive in exchange for valuable feedback.

“For the past three years, we’ve created personalized online sweepstakes solutions for a number of clients across a variety of industries,” explains Abu Noaman, CEO of Elliance. “This helped us realize that the SMB market could use a DIY version of a sweepstakes tool for their own efforts.”

Some of the key features of the ennectSweeps tool include random winner selection capabilities, simple interface, list management, real-time graphical reporting and metrics, and brand customization.

ennectSweeps is the fourth product in the ennect eMarketing toolkit joining ennectMail, ennectSurvey and ennectEvent. All ennect tools share a singular login so clients can easily use these eMarketing tools to coordinate their marketing efforts. In addition, all ennect products provide real-time reporting and metrics, which has become increasingly valuable in today’s marketplace.

Last year, Elliance won Cisco’s Growing with Technology Award and was named a finalist in the Excellence in Innovation Award from Dell for the innovative use of technology in the creation of the ennect online marketing toolkit.
