Standard eTipping gives you a fully-featured web-based tipping competition built around your rules. You will have the ability to choose the background colours, fonts, font colours, menu styles and many other features. You will also have the ability to send your participants html emails as frequently as you wish.
With all competitions we will be providing the facility for you to have access to a wide range of reports (ladder, winners, and demographics).
Additional options are listed below. The price of your competition depends on which options (if any) you choose to use.
If you would like your tipping competition to have a set look and feel (company logo, colours, wording etc) this can be achieved by supplying a template with the look and feel you require. For a similar result you can frame your competition within your current site's 'look and feel'.
Administration - Emails In
If you do not want to have to allocate the money and staff hours to answering competitors emails we can do it for you. This means that from round one if any of your entrants has a question, the experienced staff at Footy Tipping Software will receive, research and respond to them. If you choose to administer these queries yourself then Footy Tipping Software is there to help and advise on any questions that require further clarification.
Administration- Emails Out
If you don't want to have to spend your time sending out emails to your competition's participants Footy Tipping Software can take the workload off your hands.
We will send your competition emails to your competitors on your behalf. All these emails can be composed by you, will be personally addressed to each tipper and can include whatever information you would like to go out. They can also be branded with your logo and/or your 'look and feel'.
For AFL competitions these emails include the additional content of our weekly preview and review for FREE.
Additional Email Content
To ensure your emails are read, and enjoyed, by your competition entrants each week you need to give them a reason to open them and the best way to do this is by keeping the content fresh and relevant. For AFL competitions we can offer specific content for your emails - in the form of a weekly round preview, to go out with (eg) your Thursday afternoon email, and a weekly round review, to be sent out with your 'results email' on a Monday. More information and examples.
Divisions act as an added point of interest within the main tipping competition. They work by placing participants in additional groups based on their own personal information. To give you an example, during registration you may want to gather some information from your entrants ie. Age range, Job title, State of residence, Team supported etc. All of this information can be used to create divisions within the competition. This will give the effect of having a number of smaller competitions within the main one.
Each division's average score is also ranked against the others so it can be seen (eg) if one team's supporters are tipping better than another or if one state's tippers are doing better than another etc. Divisions are a great way to build competition and community in your tipping competition.
These enable you to offer 'mini competitions' within the main competition. This means that, for example, Paula Collier can join your competition and then be able to create her own individual competition within the main one. Paula can then invite her friends and family to participate and all will be listed, not only within the main competition but in the 'Paula's family and friends' group. This will increase their enjoyment and desire to keep coming back to your site and your tipping competition week after week for the full season.
If you are opening your competition up to the public, using Groups can be a great way to maximise the number of people who join.
Subdomain - Ours
By default your eTipping competition will run from our web server at www.etipping.com.au/yourname. If you'd prefer we can supply a subdomain so that your competition address is (eg) www.yourname.etipping.com.au.
