Organising competitions and sending gifts? Your brand harvests huge benefits when you sow these seeds. HighCo DATA has experience with this area. We will happily help you, your ideas and brand grow.

Competitions with prizes are a popular marketing tool among retailers and brands. Use them in different ways to achieve all kinds of different goals: developing name recognition, increasing customer involvement, stimulating sales, and the list goes on ... It’s an easy and effective way to gather data first-hand and build up your own database full of interested consumers—a unique asset, the importance of which cannot be underestimated. If the idea of competitions and prizes sounds like a winner to you, HighCo DATA will all too gladly partner with you to create the perfect campaign for maximum returns.

Recent European data shows that competitions with prizes are a particularly effective strategy for reaching consumers and increasing their involvement. A 2021 study suggests that almost 80% of European retailers organise competitions and sweepstakes to draw their customers into a story. More than half of those retailers say that competitions and sweepstakes have had a positive influence on brand recognition and sales. The current loss of consumer purchasing power has a positive effect in this regard. It means consumers are looking for positive purchasing experiences. This is where competitions with prizes or free giveaways prove their value.

One of the benefits of competitions with prizes is that they’re able to be used in several ways. For example, competitions on Facebook and Instagram are very popular. This is where brands boost their online presence, draw in followers and encourage them to engage. As well as this, competitions can be used to stimulate sales. How? Give participants a discount on certain products, or link your competition to a specific purchasing promotion.

Over the years, HighCo DATA has organised a huge number of successful competitions for clients. Just think about the ‘NIVEA MEN 100 JAAR ’ campaign, where e-bikes and Samsung TVs went out to a number of thrilled winners. We had similar successes, incidentally, with the skateboards won by the luckiest participants of the ‘LU PRINCE’ cookie promotion. LU Prince didn’t want to see the cookie crumble on this campaign, calling HighCo DATA in to make sure everything was fair and correct at every step.
