Facebook Competitions Made Easy

Facebook competitions are the fastest way that I know of to help you build your Facebook fan base.  Wildfire Apps have developed a platform that is approved by Facebook and makes it simple to set up your own competition.


This is my first video so apologies for the editing being a little wonky. My competition has been running over a week and I am pleased with the results but I have also learnt that:

  • Don’t make the question too hard.  It doesn’t matter if you have 50 entries or 500 entries you are still giving away the same prize.  I think I would have had a much higher response rate if I hadn’t tried to make it hard.
  • To make the competition effective use Facebook adverts.  If you change the copy and images on a weekly basis you will keep it fresh.  Keep checking back to see what works and stop the adverts that don’t.

Do you think you will try a competition for your page?  If you have already run a competition I’d love to hear how it worked for you, just comment below.

    Can I just add – Don’t make the question too EASY too. Those competitions on telly drive me mad. “What sort of animal is Kermit? Is he a) a frog, b) a pig or c) a wildebeest?”
    Don’t patronise me!

      That’s a good point I think you are right there needs to be an element of thought included. I ran one competition where the entrants had to just say why they wanted to win the prize and another with a product related Q that they would have to research the answer and the first comp got an entry rate of 28% opposed to 6% for the other.
