Site Contests


an easy interface to increase web traffic

When Linear was first conceived, we thought Web operators would host contests for businesses and organizations in the community. Hence, we built-in the feature to provide contests to clients. In this scenario, the contest is linked to the client's other information throughout the site. For more on this original feature, click here.

It appears we missed the need for the Linear client to host their own contests. Not anymore, now we offer Site Contests.

Essentially, the system will list all your active contests on a single page. Contest can be sorted by optional categories, by date or alphabetically. Key features include the ability to schedule individual contests to start and stop on specific dates, the ability to limit the maximum number of entries per contest and the ability to limit entries to one per person.

Unlike Account Contests, these Site Contests are completely managed by the site owner. Entries are not emailed, but rather stored in our database. At anytime, you can export the entries into a tab-delimited format.

Individual contests can be configured to collect name, phone, address, email information and more. Of course, a contest can be configured to only require a valid email address for entry.

SMDP"After years of subpar online publishing services, we discovered the answer to everything we were looking for in Linear Publishing. Linear is so easy to use and so quick to respond that our site was up in no time. Their online manual is invaluable but their staff is also extremely responsive. They have so many features that we may never use but they are there if and when we want to use them. Most recently, we created our mobile site. Within an hour it was up and running. Linear far exceeds their competition and our expectations."
