We Collect Entries

When the sweepstakes ends, we gather and organize entry data from the participating companies. This data is then sent to a federally regulated third-party agency, which randomly selects the winner.

About Us

Shared Sweeps was founded by Craig Martens and Richard Rawlings (yes that one). Richard hired Craig as the CRO of Gas Monkey Garage in 2021 to launch a sweepstakes marketing initiative. After growing sales >20X over two years with great feedback from their customers they realized they were on to something.

They recognized that launching a sweepstakes could be a daunting task between the large up-front costs and legal complexities, so they launched Shared Sweeps to democratize the ability to allow companies of all sizes to benefit from sweepstakes marketing.

Over the last several years the Shared Sweeps team has given away 7 figures worth of sweepstakes prizes through individual companies. This experience allowed us to observe a universal truth - the allure of sweepstakes transcends demographics. They are beloved by people from all walks of life.

This insight served as the catalyst for us founding Shared Sweeps. Our goal was simple yet ambitious - create the first and only company that fully finances sweepstakes and allows other companies to join in. We are motivated by the belief that great ideas should not be restricted by size or resources and our aim is to level the playing field, helping smaller businesses harness the power of sweepstakes to connect with their customers in a meaningful way.

In essence, Shared Sweeps is about more than just sweepstakes - we are about empowering businesses, fostering connections, and creating memorable experiences. As we move forward, we remain committed to this vision, driven by the same spirit of innovation and inclusivity that inspired our journey.
