Calendar Event Contests

Giveaways during holidays and special events are a smart marketing move for businesses. Instead of just focusing on big holidays like Christmas or Black Friday, consider other important events throughout the year that matter to your audience.

To keep things positive and avoid problems, choose events that match your brand and audience. You can find marketing calendars like this one for important dates. Giveaways during these events can boost your marketing and help your business succeed.

For instance, Sony Music used Tropee to give away Michael Jackson's "Thriller" vinyl for Halloween.

Market Your New Product

Product launches have changed. It used to be about TV and magazines, but now it's all about social media and influencers. With intense competition, standing out is a challenge. If you're launching something new, giveaways help spread the word and grow your email list, and drive more sales.

  • Vote on podcast or video topics.

You can do this with Tropee.

Engage Your Audience with a Scavenger Hunt

If you want to spice up your marketing strategy, consider organizing a scavenger hunt using our ‘Submit a secret code’ or ‘Submit a one-time secret code’ actions.
