Would you like to run magnetic Facebook contests?
Contests are an important component to running an effective Facebook page. They can increase engagement, get you more likes, increase website traffic, drive sales, etc. But running a contest on Facebook isn’t as simple as you think. You don’t just choose a random prize and target and work towards it aimlessly by launching a contest out of the blue. Facebook contests have to be planned in advance and run accordingly throughout the course of the contest. You need to first make a goal and work towards achieving it by building the perfect app, promoting the campaign, choosing a relevant prize, targeting an audience, etc.
This will help you attract an audience who will not only drive engagement, but will also be more likely to buy your products or use your services in the future. Here is a fantastic post, by Curt Finch (on Mashable), on running effective social media contests.
