Kontest is a turnkey platform to help anyone create social marketing campaigns for multichannel deployment. The application helps you build contests in the forms of sweepstake, instant win, quiz, poll and photo contest – all in a few steps for use on Web, Mobile and Facebook.
Co-founded by Sylvain Weber and Jacinthe Busson, Kontest provides an easy to use GUI inspired workflow that makes creating and deploying any contest easy. Users can see how their contest design will look in a Facebook page, set prizes, enable entry form requirements, translate for multi-language support, launch the campaign and analyze results.
Building a contest calls for a lot of requirements and Kontest does a great job in helping manage each portion of delivering a successful social marketing campaign. The user interface guides you with visual representations and detailed descriptions to make the process as smooth as possible. And in 7 steps you’ll be able to have a contest usable across multiple platforms using some elegant pre-built template designs that can be analyzed all through their platform.
Pricing plans to use the service is not cheap, ranging from $699 – $3999 or signing up to use the service for free at a price of $1.10/lead, containing ads for similar contests. Although coming with a hefty price tag, the analytics support, ease of use to build a complex contest, lead generation and database analysis opportunities we think make Kontest a valued resource for building and managing a new contest.
