After discovering some raffle and giveaway companies bring in millions of dollars of revenue each year, I’ve been looking into a name idea for my own venture. As a food business blog, I plan to conduct a variety of raffles for cooking equipment like high-end pots, pans, and new fangled gadgets like air fryers.

As I’ve recently discovered, hosting a raffle contest is a powerful way to build a list of qualified prospects that can be sold products or services down the line. Here’s a quick summary on how the raffle or sweepstakes business model works. You give people the opportunity to win something through a raffle or contest in exchange for their name and contact information. Often entrants will purchase additional raffles (or contest entries) by purchasing products like t-shirts, mugs, or other apparel. This all ends up as revenue for the raffle business.

If you plan to host a raffle contest or giveaway, here are more than 300 clever name ideas I came up with. Feel free to use any of them.
