Event Design & Strategy

This is the stage where we ask a lot of questions.

  • Why do you want to run a challenge?
  • What are your goals?
  • Who are you targeting?
  • When will the challenge launch? 
  • How long will it run?
  • How will you measure success?

We've got a 16 module process that will help you fine tune all of the details necessary to construct an effective campaign.

Post Event

We’ve established a checklist of fundamental elements that we use with our clients to steer them toward success. Sometimes our customers come to us with a program that is well designed. In this case, we help them to supplement their missing pieces with, for example, our online software platform or assistance with marketing. Other times, organizations look to Skild’s expert team to help them build a program from scratch. We can focus on exactly what you need.

The Skild platform enabled us to run a contest where customers submitted entries that were judged by a panel of employees. The back end was user-friendly and easy to maintain, while the front end was very professional looking and easy for customers to use. The Skild support team was helpful in getting us up and running on a tight deadline.”
