Traditional giveaway challenges:
Traditional “Like, Comment and Share - Giveaway” campaign has proven to be a good method to increase number of followers quickly, but it also has some shortcomings:
1. Cannot drive sales
With an attractive prize, giveaway is an effective way to increase brand awareness and increase followers. However, people are here for the prize, so it is very unlikely to drive sales.
2. Difficult to collect REAL opinion and data
“Leave comment” is a typical required actions in giveaway campaign. Since people are here competing for the prize, it is difficult to receive “TRUE” comment and with their names displayed to everyone.
3. Expensive operation cost
A successful giveaway campaign could receive hundreds or thousands of entries from different platforms. It would need a lot of resource to read all the comments and manage all the entries.
4. Survey is too academic
Some companies would attach a survey in their marketing campaign to collect audiences’ feedback and contact. Typical survey services such as SurveyMonkey, Google Form are not design for marketing and social engagement. Their interfaces are not designed to display product images, videos and make them looks attractive.

3. Approved ownership of customer data
Traditional giveaway campaign, audience participates via Facebook and Instagram. According to Facebook and Instagram policy, they would not share users’ info to any 3rd parties. Therefore, customer would need to contact the A80 Paris individually via messaging, which would greatly increase the time and cost. By using Votap question, customers’ info and contact are privately protected and only shared to A80 Paris.
