Contest Central is a unique contest site because it allows users to freely upload videos of themselves in response to a contest challenge. Users enlist their friends from social media to vote for the user. Whoever gets the most votes, wins. Contests are fun, interesting and always updated as to popular interests. Users can vote online from any media such as smartphones, iPads, laptops, etc. There are no fees to join Contest Central or to enter any contest.
All videos are seen by a worldwide audience and give exposure to talent in all kinds of activities and interests that are not normally seen online. The user's input is vital to the Contest Central experience. This is what distinguishes our contests from others. Since the users offer such a wide range of dynamic content, they tell us what they want to participate in. Prizes are fun and can range from cash to trips, cars, and much more.
Although prizes are offered by sponsors, contests are not necessarily directly related to a company's products, but related to what is popular and fun as an activity. Users also have the opportunity to get special deals and discount coupons from sponsors of contests. In effect, all contest entrants get something for entering, whether it be exposure to a massive audience or something offered separately by a sponsor. At Contest Central, we want to give the contestant the best user experience possible. Check it out for yourself and have fun!
Contest Central is a site that empowers people who have talents to be seen by the world, with videos and social media as the tools. Contest Central brings popular activities to the web by means of contests in many areas, including music, art, dance, hair design, surfing, impressions, etc. There is no limit to the type or amount of contests on Contest Central. A user does not need an agent, promoter or even a TV show in order to win a contest on Contest Central.
All that the user needs is friends who will vote for a particular user's video. The video with the most votes, wins! There are no fees to join Contest Central or to enter any contest on Contest Central. All entrants' videos will regularly be seen by large audiences on the worldwide web.
Sponsors benefit by getting massive amounts of hits to a contest that they sponsor on Contest Central. With Google Analytics, all sponsors receive the latest information on what is popular and what demographics are interested in their contests. This information is much more efficient than TV or CABLE ratings. It is also much more effective than those mediums to reach consumers quickly with a win-win contest. The users get seen and can win an actual prize.
The sponsors get millions of hits for their contests and products. Contests can be changed, expanded, extended and even focused to a particular demographic at a particular time. Contests are hugely popular and our site offers cutting-edge research on what, when, why and how to run a contest. All of this is tracked daily by Contest Central and the sponsor.
