How to Promote Session Evaluation Submissions with a Raffle
It's often difficult to get attendees to fill-out session evaluation forms, so one tactic to encourage participation is to let attendees know that every evaluation they provide will earn them a raffle ticket for door prizes. Here's how to use Conferences i/o along with our free rafflekit.com website to handle the selection of door prize winners from the pool of participants.
RUNNING A RAFFLE
When you are ready to run a raffle for prizes, do the following.
TIP: There's a link for "Raffle: Update Settings" which allows you to give that particular drawing a name, which can help you manage and organize your drawings. For example, you might name it: "Monday, 4PM Raffle #1".
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR SPREADSHEET OF NAMES
The Rafflekit.com website requires that names be in the first column ('A') of a spreadsheet. Since the report places the first and last names into separate columns, we recommend that you create a new column that joins those two values together to be "full name".
To help, we have a Rafflekit Spreadsheet that you can copy/paste names into, and the first column will automatically join (concatenate) the first and last name. The spreadsheet includes 'next steps' which indicates to then copy the newly generated Full Name values into a new spreadsheet, using "Paste as Values" during the process. That new spreadsheet can then be imported into the Rafflekit website.
