Mooz Entertainment launched a campaign that gave free passes to lucky winners using SocialAppsHQ’s Sweepstake App. To participate, fans were asked to simply enter basic details like name, email and phone number. Organizers also provided an incentive to encourage users to share event details with their friends using Sweepstake App’s in-built mechanism.


Given social media savvy young Indian demographics and popularity of GNR, Sweepstake App worked really well in amplifying the overall impact. During a short period, Mooz Entertainment’s Facebook page for GNR trip got over 44,000 fans as well as 500+ entries. The page gained immense popularity and had one of the highest engagement rate during the campaign.
