Traffic to Sweepstakes from Meta (Facebook) in 2024: trends and tips

sweepstakes and meta trends 2024

Sweepstakes is a niche with huge potential. It has way lower competition than, for instance, iGaming, but it’s no less profitable. And, as a bonus, it’s easier to scale your campaigns since the moderation process is quite simple.  

These offers are basically giveaways that every user can take part in by filling out a specific form, getting a subscription or performing any other action required by the advertiser. Filling out the form would be the most common option: the user needs to give their email, address, phone number, credit card info.   

Peculiarities of Sweepstakes offers and the niche volume 

Sweepstakes are in high demand which is easy to understand: you get the opportunity to win valuable prizes (smartphones, trips, gift cards, gadgets etc.) by following simple requirements.  

Sweepstakes convert even better when before any type of holiday when people start spending more money and are more prone to believing in miracles.

Types of Sweepstakes offers

There are 4 types of Sweepstakes offers:

  • SOI (Single-Opt In). In these offers users need to fill out the information with their email address without confirming it by getting an email. This is the easiest flow for the user and it gives higher CR. But the payouts are usually lower here;
  • DOI (Double-Opt In) presupposes that the contact info (usually, email) is confirmed by following the link from an email that is sent to you after filling out the form. The CR is lower because of additional steps the user has to take, but the payouts are higher; 
  • CC Submits. In this case the user needs to give their credit card info. The CR is usually lower than in the previous two types, but the payout is much (much) higher. You need to further refine your funnel and warm up the customer so that they bring a conversion.
