Get Better Results And More Freedom From Your Marketing

After you have your ideal demographic chosen, it’s important to choose the prize. The prize doesn’t need to be expensive. But it must be relevant to your ideal customer. Even better is one that is unique to your business. Selecting a prize that’s intriguing to your target customer is way more valuable than offering up a costly item.

For example, if you hold events, offer a four-pack of tickets or a VIP package. A restaurant could give away a dinner for two. Florists can offer a bouquet delivered to the location of the winner’s choosing.

You get the idea. But for more inspiration, here are some more ideas:

  • A care package
  • Gift certificates
  • Tickets to holiday events
  • Winter vacation
  • Beach-vacation destination
  • A landscaping package
  • Professional home-cleaning services
  • A shopping spree
  • A dream vacation for a family
  • Tickets to a family-friendly place
  • Travel-related prizes
  • New patio furniture
  • Pool-cleaning services for a year
  • Lawn care services for one month
  • Golf lessons or membership to a golf club
