Contests and Giveaways
Everyone loves free stuff. Doing contests and giveaways is a great way to increase your followers & engagement. Are you a restaurant? You could give a free dessert. Are you a cleaning service? You can giveaway a free one time cleaning.
Do you sell remote control window treatments? Are you a car dealer? Do you sell large ticket items? In this cases it can be hard to come up with things to use on a give away. The good news is that the prize does not have to be one of your products. You can giveaway a voucher or gift card, a holiday related item, a home decoration or other items that are related to your industry. Be on the lookout for partners with whom you could organize one.
There is many ways to run a contest or giveaway, but the most important thing to remember is to follow the rules and guidelines of each site.
- Give clear rules and instruction on how to participate.
- Let everyone know when it is over and announce the winner.
- If you are going to hold more giveaways in the future, let your audience know to avoid losing new followers once your giveaway or contest closes.
