Promotions and giveaways are everywhere online; from websites to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social platforms. They’re so common that you’d be forgiven for thinking they’re trivial to run.
But running effective competitions is tricky. You can run a simple giveaway – for free – and we’ll show you exactly how to do that in this PDF guide. But, if you want to supercharge your contests and use them to exponentially grow your following, you’ll need some dedicated tools.
Do you want to run promotions on multiple platforms at once? Do you want to boost engagement with multiple entry methods? Do you want to encourage viral growth across social media? Schedule promotions to run automatically? Gather in depth data and analytics? You’ll definitely need something more powerful than a spreadsheet or a big hat to pull names out of.
Thankfully, there are many apps and tools available to help you run effective contests and giveaways.
These tools help you design your contest, make it look visually engaging, configure all the technical details, launch it to the world, share it on social media, embed it on your website, pick a completely random winner, manage your new subscriber list and help you stick to the data protection laws. Many have free trials, unlimited entries and viral ‘refer a friend’ features. But how do you know which one is best for you?
We’ve created a handy downloadable guide to help you make the most of your online promotions. You’ll learn about six of the best online tools for organising and streamlining social contests, making it simple for you to pick the right one for you. You’ll never have to run a contest manually again!
We’ve also included a whole section about ensuring you run your promotions in line with local laws, data protection regulations (like GDPR) and the strict terms and conditions of the various social media platforms.
