5 Tips for a successful social media giveaway!
In this day and age, you can’t do much of anything without incorporating social media. And, if you haven’t done so already, launching a social media giveaway is a great way to engage your audience, encourage viral sharing and gain new followers!
Here’s a couple of ways to maximize your efforts!
TARGET YOUR ADVERTISING
Almost all social media platforms offer some form of paid advertising. And, you can run an awesome, targeted campaign on the cheap if you do it right.
BONUS ENTRIES FOR SOCIAL SHARES
Ask entrants to share you promotion on social media! For each share, offer them a bonus entry!
GIVE SOMETHING OF VALUE (TO THEM...AND YOU)
Offer every person who enters, a coupon offering a discount on your product or service. They will appreciate the chance to save some money and you will reap the benefits of increased sales.
MAKE EM’ FAMOUS!
Offer a contest and ask for submissions that you’ll use as part of your advertising campaign! Another total win for you and the winner. They get to share their creativity with the world, and you get to save a ton of money hiring an ad agency.
Be sure that you are awarding prizing relative to the demographic you are tapping into. So, no spring break type vacations if your crowd is filled with grandparents. And, no leisurely trips to admire rose gardens for college kids. Give them something they will enjoy (and continue to blab about)!
