Gambling Hmm. Don't you think online contests & sweepstakes are a gimmick to please customers, rather than educating them about your product or services-Today's marketing trend/content marketing. In today's world where people are so much active through various social medias, its not better to have a plan/strategy/engaging-content, ready to entice them. Its easy to lure people through attractive offers but I want to know if it can build an image of a good brand/service in people's mind. Aren't you indirectly telling them, look I gave you something now its your turn to return back.

Correct me if I am going wrong.
