WISP GiveAway 2018 is finally over!
For over 3 weeks starting April 28th, 2018, the unique giveaway event attracted attention from WISPs from all across the world. And why not!? All WISPs had to do to get 7 confirmed giveaways and a chance to win the grand prize was to just visit the official website of WISP GiveAway and sign up with their email and other contact information!
Any one who signed up got one confirmed giveaway from one the participating sponsors.
Day 1 of the giveaway was an inspiring e-book from Wisper University
Day 3 included a set of 5 customizable WISP marketing templates from Ping Marketing
Day 4 was a special $100 credit for new Sonar customers
Day 5 offered free setup worth $1500-5000 from Argo Contact Centers
Day 6 was a free trial and $250 credit from Preseem for new customers
Day 7 was a $10 web coupon from DoubleRadius
The excitement was carried over strongly by all the 7 vendor sponsors – through their email, website and social media channels leading to a massive buzz about the event across online communities, Facebook groups and pages.
The grand prize package, to its credit, was in itself a big attraction. After all, it was a unique amalgamation of practical WISP gifts like ticket to WISPApalooza or a training session and some cool gadgets like Apple iPad!
What was in the grand prize?
Worth over $2000, the grand prize package in the first-ever WISP GiveAway 2018 included:
- Apple iPad mini
- One conference ticket to WISPApalooza 2018 in Las Vegas
- Amazon Tap – Alexa-Enabled Portable Bluetooth Speaker
- Customized box of premium cigars with company rings
- Amazon Echo Dot
- Free Wisper University session (valid on the marketing, tech support or installer class up to $999.00)

How many WISPs participated?
More than 435 participants joined the online giveaway event including 405 verified WISPs!
This represented 16 countries including US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, South Africa, Ireland, Ghana, Spain, India and even Nepal! An overwhelming majority of the participants, for obvious reasons, represented US and Canada.
As per the rules, entries beyond the US and Canada as well as few ineligible entries (consultants, vendors) were disregarded for the purpose of the grand prize draw. Most, however, received info on how to claim the seven free giveaways from vendor sponsors.
Most Importantly, Who Won?
On the morning of 15th June 2018, representatives from all the sponsoring vendors joined on a conference call to randomly draw the winner of the first-ever WISP GiveAway event.
With a couple of tests and verification of the randomness of the draw function, 3 winners were drawn from the list of eligible entries (one winner + 2 back-up entries). As mandated by the official sweepstakes rules, contact was established with the main draw winner and verification process was completed! And, we never had to use the back-up entries.
Cody Christensen from Affinity Technology Solutions, a young and growing WISP from Pocatello, ID won the grand prize package and boy, he was excited on the phone.
Over the next couple of weeks, Cody will get his hands on all the grand prizes coming in his mailbox or via the e-mail and he’s free to do what he wants with his bounty!
The information around Cody’s winning the grand prize was also promoted across all social media channels and company communication platforms by all the vendors.
On behalf of all the sponsors, We at Preseem, would like to thank each one of the WISPs who signed up for this event and hope that the giveaways turn out to be useful to your businesses! We also make a promise to be back in the future with more giveaways and an even bigger grand prize package! Watch out this space for more information.
