How to build an "Enter Contest to Win Prizes" Application
Posted on 2004-08-24
I am a basic Coldfusion developer with not a lot of advanced skills. I have a website where i want users to be able to enter into a monthly drawing to win prizes. The prizes will be mailed to the winner so I will need the users contact information. The main reason i want to do this is i want people to come back regularly. my site changes everyday and new things are posted that i want users to see. Hopefully once it gets started, i will have weekly contests. Does anyone have an idea of how this can be done? and can you instruct me on how to implement the application? Once the drawing is made, i would like to have all the users that entered but did not win receive an email stating that they did not win but to try again. I am using an Access database. Thanks for you help!
