Squadhelp.com, a leading player in the crowdsourcing industry, recently announced important updates to their contests, all designed to provide a better experience for contest holders.
Online PR News – 22-December-2010 – – Small businesses and entrepreneurs are increasingly turning to Squadhelp to procure services they need to help give their business a boost. Squadhelp provides a platform to bring together service seekers and providers in a contest format. Recently, Squadhelp announced significant updates to their crowdsourcing contest to provide a better experience for contest holders. The redesigns are accompanied by several new features which collectively work in concert to provide contest holders additional metrics that helps them see the developing landscape of their campaigns.
Viral marketing campaigns have been on a tear at Squadhelp, with legions of contestants vying for award money simply by leveraging their expansive social network to drive traffic to the target sites. Contest holders are treated to dozens of users competing to build viral marketing campaigns and drive traffic to their website. Once the contest is underway, contest holders can just sit back and watch the traffic stats in real time from their contest page. The beauty of this contest arrangement is if the contest holder does not like the results, they can get their money back.
In order to make the experience better for contest holders, Squadhelp has redesigned the process and added several new features. It starts with each contestant receiving a unique traceable URL that they need to use to promote the contest holder's site. With this setup, contest holders will be able to view real time stats related to the traffic coming into their site as a result of the contest. The traffic driven by each contestant may be independently viewed. Contest holders will be able to determine the number of unique visits driven by each contestant, and this metric is important because it is a true measure of the volume actually generated. Finally, contest holders will be able to ascertain the source of the traffic, whether it came from a video site, a social networking site, or another site that is promoting the contest holder's website.
The business landscape has been significantly altered by the economic times, and Squadhelp is paving the way for smaller entrepreneurs to compete on a shoestring budget. The success demonstrated by Squadhelp is a testament not only to the efficacy of the crowdsourcing business model, but also to the attention Squadhelp pays to their contest holders. "Feedback is an integral part of our business and we consistently listen to the ideas cultivated by our community. We prioritize and implement highly sought after contests to ensure that we give our community the ability to help each other succeed," explains Rachel Shaw of Squadhelp.com.
