This is not a scam and I guess that may be my number one concern or turn off in my website and I'm really here to get advice to see what people think or how can I make it better.
I have make it where people just sign up and get chance to win and looks like less than 10% of visitors actually sign up. The sign up is easy and requires really no personal sensitive info (no credit card, ssn).
The idea behind this site is to give people alternative to shopping and get their dream items at much lower cost or free.
In the nutshell, is it where put chump change towards an item then one of the contribute gets it. This way people are helping one another out and chances are much higher and more real than lottery. It is also in turns simulate the economy and give people chance to stretch their dollar otherwise just sit around or use toward something not necessary, like give more tips, parking in expensive parking, and things you can save easily and get yourself or others a chance. It is a win or consumer and business where otherwise both parties wont buy or sell their product.
I also offer many free points option and it is not the lame ads, survey, trying thing out type. I aim to make it fun, quick, engaging and easy. In turns, this will help me market and drive traffic and I put the money that would goes toward marketing back to the user. Such as share a link on their social media and get likes to earn points. I want to make earning point relevant to user and game like so it is fun and engaging.
