With Facebook contests, you can turn readers into fans because these activities help increase traffic to your website.
First, you should know what you want to achieve through your Facebook contest. Do you want to grow your Fanbase? Do you want to boost your sales? After setting your goals, you can choose the contest that is bang on for you.
You can run your contest directly on your Page or through an app on Facebook.
Here you have a list of available apps:
To collect entries, you can ask people to like or comment a post on your page, publish to your page or send your page a message.
Personal profiles cannot be used to collect entries.
Furthermore, you should add a disclaimer to your post, stating clearly that your promotion is not sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Facebook in any way.
You also need terms and conditions as well as regulations governing the promotion.
You can use Fanpage Karma to identify the winners of your Facebook promotion.
Then, you should pick a prize to offer to the winners. For example, you can reward them with a download code for a free eBook. If you are a registered user, you can find out more about our eBook Download Codes Promotion in your account.
Have fun organizing your Facebook competition!
