Contest to get more Fans

7 replies
I am considering having a contest on my fan page to get more likes. I am thinking of offering a $50 gift card to say, Amazon for the person that brings in the most new fans. Can someone give me some tips to make sure I make this a success? Thank you

    I have seen this kind of contest happening a lot.
    You can use Gleam.io and setup tasks for the users finish Like sharing your fanpage daily and something more.

    Boost that post and see what kind of conversions are you getting.

    I think its good idea to have contest for fan page but it depends if you want country specific/region specific and people are attracted to good prizes if its good you will get good traffic

    It is important to set clear rules and time frame. Such as to participate like the page, comment on this post and share it. There are many different tools you can use. Or like my buddy...he writes all of the names on individual pieces of paper and put it in a jar. Then draw a name at random. You can even do a FB live in your fanpage picking the winner

    stuff like contest and pools are driving more engagements on your social channels but it should be interesting, entertaining and challenging, As people always love challenges to solve.

    These types of contest work incredibly well. I've seen non-IM niche blogs do this and their comments just explode with email addresses.

    My advice is don't give away a gift card because what will happen is you'll get random traffic that doesn't care about your site or niche. Give away something niche specific, that way the only people that will signup are actually interested in the same niche (your site).

    That is really hard to forecast which kind of contest will help to get more fans. I think that you can have a kind of experiment and test. I think and believe in it that key feature is motivation of targeted audience. That is a really hard part to create something what would attract a lot of attention.

    My advice would be to choose a prize that will attract your ideal customer or facebook page audience rather than just anyone. The $50 gift card from Amazon will get you lots of entries, however these people may not necessarily be attracted to your page. Make your own product or a service your offer as part of the prize.
