Throughout the quarter, SPRIZA™ focused on building new relationships with potential clients, while improving and expanding its product and service offering.

SPRIZA™ added a critical individual in Business Development who is generating new business relationships within the professional sports industry.

SPRIZA™ designed and developed a new product vertical - a customer lottery platform - to add to its current offering. The new lottery platform includes a user-friendly microsite or landing page where participants can easily purchase lottery tickets, each with an assigned unique number. The platform allows clients to open their lotteries to a broader audience, eliminating the restriction of sales from traditional off-line lottery processes. The software system includes a payment integration with security protocol, ticket print mapping and functionality, and reporting and analytics of the lottery campaign. The software tracks and stores all data providing a system that is Legal Compliant, Audit-able, and includes Terms & Conditions and Fulfillment. Lottery campaigns may include automatic email confirmations and send-outs, and have the option for user incentives for purchasing multiple tickets or digesting specific content.

SPRIZA™ created a local contest campaign for No Greater Love, Canada's largest outdoor Christian music festival, owned by Christian Ventures Group Ltd. The short-term contest gave away VIP passes to the festival. The campaign had a Conversion Rate of 24%.

A SPRIZA™ contest that was live throughout Q3 was for Artists Within Makeup Academy. This contest offered three Grand Prizes of Online Makeup Artist Academy Tuition and a Pro Makeup Kit to one winner and two of their friends. The contest incentivized users to share it, contributing to the hundreds of thousands of 'Shares' SPRIZA™ has experienced.

SPRIZA™ continued to provide support to its client Dingsly, a new player in the crowd-funding market. SPRIZA™ created a contest campaign for Dingsly to generate market awareness and drive traffic to dingsly.com. Dingsly is an eSport-centric crowdfunding website and application that will allow gaming tournament providers to increase the total prize amounts for tournaments and ladders. The two-week campaign had a conversion rate of 51.26% and was shared by consumers over two-thousand times. The contest granted the Grand Prize Winner a Gamer Prize Pack, which included a fully customizable Cinch Gaming controller and other wearable gear. The contest also gave away seven Entry Prizes of various Cinch Gaming gear and apparel.

Other technical advances to the SPRIZA™ platform have enhanced the user experience and effectiveness of campaign creation and management. SPRIZA™ continues to update its Social Integrations to allow for effective distribution and viral sharing of the contest campaigns. The SPRIZA™ system tracks over 150 data points, presenting them in a user-friendly Analytics Dashboard. The platform collects Leads and their demographic data, with an improved search and sort function.

Momentum is leading to results as Q3 transitioned into Q4. SPRIZA™ campaigns to come include a variety of new business relationships in the industries of Sports (with a focus in the NHL), Travel, Entertainment and more.
