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.
