Want to boost engagement and start some chatter about your business? Create a social media contest! There’s no better way to give back to your followers than by creating an exciting competition.

Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

First, think about what you’ll offer as a prize. Whether it be one of your products, a discount on a service, a coffee card, a shout out on your page, a mention in your newsletter or anything else you’d like to offer, choose something relevant to your brand or community. 

Next, you’ll need to create the competition. An essential rule to include is to have entrants share the contest so their friends will see it and hopefully enter as well. 

Here are a few more examples of successful rules: 

  1. Like this picture
  2. Tag a friend 
  3. Post a photo with your favorite product of ours

Be sure to include a specific date when you will announce the winner. 

Woof, good luck!
