Woobox did the job. It hosted our little video contest, and it did it without breaking the bank. I had a few issues along the way, but support was helpful at each hurdle. There was a slightly sour note though… It's one of those services that is easy to sign up to, not so easy to cancel. You hand over your credit card number, and your subscription will keep renewing (in advance) until the day you shut...
Value for money. I couldn't find another video contest platform that offered the same features for this price. Some companies want to charge $500 a month for unlimited entries, where Woobox gives you that for $32 per month. (The videos have to be hosted on third-party sites, which was absolutely fine by me.) Overall, the UI was pretty usable. There were a few gotchas, but when I did get stuck, support was responsive and helpful.
Woobox is basically a widget that you embed in your site, with its own very basic navbar. If you want nicer integration with your site, such as providing your own navigation to the entry form and gallery, it's not so easy.

This has been a favored marketing software for my business and has done a great job with building my email lists over the years. It's easy to use and also provides fun for potential consumers.
I like to run several giveaways per quarter to bring brand awareness, and Woobox has been a favorite platform for many years. It is simple to set up, customize, and track analytics, and there are different plans with more features depending on your marketing goals. Integration is easy on Facebook, websites, or you can opt for a stand alone landing page. The viral sharing options offer a very quick way to build email lists and extend the reach of your message. Woobox does not stop at sweepstakes- it can be configured for polls, voting contests, and much more.
Some of my giveaway participants in the past complained about Woobox not correctly tracking their entries. This can be considered a small problem for a business owner (especially with thousands of overall successful entrants) but would be something to look out for if transparency with customers is desired. The pricing can be steep depending on which features you desire.
