Contest.is (Social Promotions Platform) Joins HubSpot App Marketplace
Now Marketers Can Include Polls, Sweepstakes, Contests, and Giveaways in their Strategic Inbound Marketing Plans
SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- HustleAndCode, a San Francisco Bay Area based technology company, is pleased to announce that Contest.is (a Social Promotions Platform) is now featured in the HubSpot App Marketplace -- a leading inbound marketing software provider.
With the release of the HubSpot Marketplace Contest.is app, HubSpot businesses and marketers can combine the power of sweepstakes, contests, giveaways, and polls with Hubspot's All-In-One Marketing software. Hubspot coined the term "Inbound Marketing," and with the integration of Contest.is to Hubspot's App Markeplace, businesses and marketers have the ability to harness the power of inbound marketing through interactive social promotions campaigns created and administered by accessing the Contest.is dashboard directly from Hubspot.
Contest.is' platform enables companies to reap the benefits of social promotions through the creation of engaging user generated content. Integration of Contest.is into the HubSpot App Marketplace also offers businesses the opportunity to:
- Integrate "HubSpot Leads API" with Contest.is
- Easily create various types of contests from HubSpot (Youtube Videos/Photos, including Instagram)
- Acquire leads, registrations and sign-ups
- Extend company brand across social channels with every sweepstakes entry or contest vote cast - reach prospective customers in major social channels while collecting HubSpot leads
- MailChimp Integration optional
- Leverage Facebook and Twitter
- Drive traffic online and offline (with geo-location based campaigns)
Sir Drafton, Founder/CTO of HustleAndCode, is the creator of the Contest.is platform. Drafton shares that "HubSpot was interested in a platform that could host controversial type contests. And, Contest.is' platform provides an exciting and engaging solution for that format through its 'Versus' component, i.e., pitting one opponent against the other. And, the application's user friendly dashboard was also appealing to HubSpot in their decision to include Contest.is in its App Marketplace."
Drafton reports that the company has recently added a component to the Contest.is platform which allows companies to host Instagram Photo Contests -- a feature most brand marketers are looking for these days with Instagram's increased popularity. https://app.hubspot.com/market/front/contestisapp
