We make sure your sweepstakes is run correctly
Sweepstakes usually go one of two ways: Either they’re a huge success and generate tons of brand awareness and new customers, or they end up being a total disaster with legal consequences that could tarnish your reputation for years to come. We make sure your promotion goes the first way, every time. When you let American manage and administer your sweepstakes or contest, you know vital regulations will be fulfilled and legal compliance will be met.
Sweepstakes law is strictly regulated in many states and countries because of the potential abuse by scammers. However, following certain rules makes it easy to bypass the worry of seeming illegitimate or being compromised. We know the right way to structure your sweepstakes so that all aspects are secure and in compliance with applicable laws, be it an online or in-person promotion. As your administrator, it is our job to know the fine print and we always design a sweepstakes to be fully compliant.
