Competitions That Save Lives: How Spot The Ball Supports The Healthcare System

  • April 21, 2020

When COVID19 rages through every country in the world and the healthcare systems are barely holding up under the strain, every company should sit down and think “how can we help”? The most emphatic of the managers may want to drop everything and go on to sew masks or assist in the hospitals - probably they would be more distracting than helpful, but good intentions count. But a lot of managers and business owners will have a lot less altruistic agenda - layoffs and budget cuts, limiting access to healthcare, and exploiting the workers. But as time and social media reactions are showing - they will be doing irreparable damage to their companies and the public won’t be soon to forget or forgive them.

So how can your company help the healthcare system during a crisis, boost the morale of your audience, and not make the life of your marketers and PR people a lot harder?

Setting up a competition that not only yields prizes to the skilled game players in your audience but whose ultimate aim is to raise funds for NHS or other healthcare institutions proves to be a valid option.

Setting up a competition site amid a crisis may seem too complicated, too long, or too expensive. After one mention your company’s manager will start counting the expenses on the IT team that would design the game, the lawyers who need to make sure you don’t accidentally set up a lottery or some sort of sweepstakes - it can be a minefield.

But it shouldn’t since Tentacle Solutions has already thought about it all before and developed a turnkey competition site solution that can be implemented on the same day as you buy it. Instead of worrying about all the minutiae details of the Spot the Ball mechanics and web design, your managers and marketers can focus on the fundraising campaign. And as we discussed earlier there are new and unexpected audience segments that your company can tap into and raise funds. After all, if a 90-year-old Captain Tom Moore can raise funds, your company definitely can.
