A Contest Generates Excitement

If you’re considering clever ideas for a social media marketing campaign to help get your message across, try running a contest to attract viewer attention.

People crave freebies. Have you ever noticed at a trade show how willing people are to enter a contest?  Running a social media contest on your Facebook page or company blog will produce the same results, especially if you include a quality picture of your prize as a visual aid.

Asking people to enter your Facebook contest will get valuable prospect names and addresses. Even small prizes like T-Shirts and gift cards will produce a flurry of activity.

Be sure to make the contest period reasonable and always post the name of the winner. You can purchase custom T-shirts at

If you are successful, you may consider offering contests on a regular basis to draw in new fans and viewers.
