In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, organising live lucky draws and giveaways can be a hassle.
This is especially challenging with recent social-distancing measures put in place to prohibit and reduce the number of live events. And we all know the social distancing measures are here to stay – if not forever, then at least for the next few years.
What if I told you we have a solution around this?
A digital solution that can help you digitise your entire lucky draw process. Here is everything you need to know about a Digital Lucky Draw system.
What is a Lucky Draw?
Although Lucky Draws can be designed in different forms and come with its own set of rules, the traditional lucky draw usually involves a representative such as a host to reach into a jar of lucky draw entries and pick one out.
Prior to the draw, designated numbers are distributed to the audience or name cards are collected by the host.
The host then randomly picks a number or name card from the jar as the winner.
Nothing beats the thrill and suspense of anxiously hoping for your name to be picked, which explains the undying popularity of lucky draws globally.
With the advent of technology and the recent widespread pandemic, more companies are resorting to a digital space for organizing lucky draws.
A Digital Lucky Draw is a seamless, swift and effective method of conducting lucky draws online through video conferencing platforms or live streaming. Connecting both the audience and the company, digital lucky draws add to the excitement and engagement of winning prizes in this luck-based game.
