Our Contest feature allows your clients to join a group and automatically enter a contest. Upon entering, they will be greeted with an Entry Confirmation Message. Upon completion of the contest, a winner will be chosen automatically (if selected) and sent a Winning Message. You can both engage with your subscribers and attract potential subscribers with a contest. These will attract the potential subscribers who need a tangible offer to subscribe, and the prize from a contest is a good offer.
