What is a Fast Giveaway?

Fast giveaways award prizes to the first participants that enter. US Sweepstakes can help decide if a Fast Giveaway is right for your marketing goals.

If you’ve seen promotions that reward participants who are among the first to complete an action, then you’ve probably seen a Fast Giveaway. Fast Giveaways can be easily identified by the presence of phrases like: “Be one of the first 10 people to comment on this post and you could receive a free gift,” or “The first 100 people to fill out this form receive a prize.”

Fast Giveaways can be the perfect option for businesses who have the following marketing goals in mind for their next promotion:

  • Fast, Limited Time Offer
    Where most traditional sweepstakes and contests offer an entry period of a couple weeks or even months in length, a Fast Giveaway has a much shorter entry period that generally ends when the prize inventory runs out, or when the number of entrants reaches a predetermined limit.

  • Quickly promote product trial
    A Fast Giveaway is probably not the best opportunity to give away a car, but if you’re looking to inexpensively promote a new product by giving away samples a Fast Giveaway can be a great option.

  • Increase Social Media
    If you want to have a quick impact on your social media audiences, Fast Giveaways not only help attract people to your social page (and increase your potential for more fans), but they also increase your engagement with fans. If people expect offers to happen again, they are likely to follow your accounts to be one of the first to hear about the next giveaway.
