Promote Contests with Social Media
Hosting a contest on social media will help to boost your online presence and enhance engagement with not only your current customers, but new, and future customers as well.
Choose your demographic:
One of the most important aspects of starting a contest is to figure out who you want to enter. Choose your demographic based on where you are located, the types of customers you have, and the services you provide.
Incentive for Social Sharing:
A great way to spread the word about your contest and business is through incentivized social sharing. Offer a bonus entry to your customers by having them comment on your contest post and get their friends to “like” their comment. Each “like” can count as a bonus entry. This will help to maximize your reach by getting new views and potential new customers on your page.
Promote with Ads:
Want your reach to get even farther? Promote your contest with a paid Facebook advertisement. With paid ads, you can keep track of how your ad is doing by measuring engagement, amount spent, and your cost per result. Promoting with paid ads makes sure your content is getting seen.
Choosing Your Winner:
Make picking the winner of your social media contest an event. Schedule the event on your Facebook page and plan to share the news with a live video. After announcing the winner live, post about it on your social pages and make sure to tag the winner!
Using these tips, you can promote your contests using social media while delighting your customers and positioning your company’s brand as a winner.

Look at what we’ve been up to! Every month, the team at Net Driven gets together for some serious team bonding. Last month, we wanted to give back and help out some animals in need. We came together as a team and donated much needed items to Griffin Pond Animal Shelter. We are all so excited to see these furry friends get some much needed care items.
