First of all, WP Contest Creator gives you full control over your contest pages – other contest software or contest platforms just give you limited ways to configure your contest, and you have to cope with those limitations.
Some of these other contest software for WordPress cost less than WP Contest Creator, but at the same time they give you less options & features. Also when comparing to cloud contest platforms, obviously these charge per month or per year – which is significantly higher than WP Contest Creator, and surprisingly you have to pay a higher premium for almost the same features we already have.
On the other hand, WP Contest gives you full control over the look & feel, supports mailing list integration with popular providers, and best of all, it all comes in one package, so you’ll only have to buy once.
It depends how you initially promote your contest, how many regular visitors you have on your site and the number of questions on your entry form. We have seen from 150 to 350 participants join to our customer contests in a single day. Other customers have reported up to 1,000 signups in a day.
Our WCC Photo Add-On has some unique features that will keep participants and voters coming to your site like: social sharing controls, photo slider that show multiple image uploads per participant, fully customizable forms (with drag & drop support) – you can add as few or as many form fields as you like. Participant can even upload photos at different times without the need to login or fill the registration form again – which is very convenient.
Last but not least, when you buy the WCC Photo extension, you also have the Viral Contest features available to you. In other words, you can run two types of contests: Viral Contests and Photo Contests. The best value you’ll ever get – compared to other limited contest software options on the Web.
The single survey question feature serves to gauge the effectiveness of your contest campaign. A target question here can tell you the type of user that is joining your contest. For example if you ask: “What type of phone do you like?” and you add as options: Android, iPhone, Windows Phone. By looking at your contest lead dashboard you can see if the majority of your users are for example iPhone users or not. (In case your contest campaign is targeting Apple users) – so with this info you can tweak your contest page or share message to go after the audience you need.
We also have Add-Ons that can help you narrow your audience.
