Easy way to contact those who entered previous contests.

You’re sending out your call for entries and want an easy way to reach out to those who entered your contest last year.  With BetterBNC, just use the Marketing Manager feature (included in the base system) to create an email for all of the contestants from the previous year. It’s easy and there’s no additional charge to use the Marketing Manager email feature.  Organizations are also using Marketing Manager to send reminders and thank you notes to judges right from the admin dashboard.  If you have questions about how to set up Marketing Manager just let us know or send us a support trouble ticket and we’ll follow up.

Also remember that your customized homepage is included in your base price.  Chose a template, enter your information and then just direct your judges and contestants right to your unique URL to get started.

Training a new contest administrator.

Speaking with an organization looking at BetterBNC this week, the question came up about how contest admins are trained on the platform. It was of particular concern since, in their contest, the admin changes from year to year.

With BetterBNC, all of your training and support for the year is included in your base price – there is no additional charge to train a new admin or field tech support questions.  When someone new comes into the position, the outgoing admin can show them around the platform and familiarize them with the dashboard and we are available to provide training as needed.  The transition from one admin to the other is seamless.

Another question was whether there is a significant learning curve if an organization moves from another platform to BetterBNC.  We work with our contests to make that switch as easy as possible and generally find that those who have used another online platform adjust quickly to BetterBNC.

Those who have been running manual contests often find it so much easier than dealing with paperwork and physical entries that they, too, have an easy transition. The platform has been designed to be both powerful and intuitive to use.
