On the Marin County Dream House Raffle website they show a fun way to create excitement about the upcoming raffle. Right at the upper right hand corner, there’s a countdown clock.
Community Action Marin gives away numerous prizes in their big raffle. Not only do they give away a multi-million dollar home, they offer early bird cash drawings! The countdown clock on their website right now counts down to the early bird drawing. In Raffle Secrets we talk have a whole chapter on early bird and other drawings that can add excitement and revenue.
So could your raffle do something like this to build excitement? Sure!
If you don’t have access to a programmer who can make the countdown for you, that’s okay. There are websites where you can build a countdown clock in just a few clicks. You specify the date and whether you want it to just count down to the day, or also show hour and/or seconds.
Here is an example of a countdown clock that goes to one year from today!
Just go to the countdown clocks website and give it a try!
