Stuck for Ideas for your Contest

Using a Contest to promote your Page is an excellent way to create buzz and drive new faces to your Business.  Now you are all excited and then comes the hurdle .. what type of contest do I offer?

Here is a list of  some of the different types of contests available in Facebook;

  • Sweepstakes
  • Essay
  • Quiz
  • Photo Contest
  • Video Contest

Once you’ve decided on the type of contest, next comes the hard part deciding the theme.  If you are not creative this could be a real stumbling block for you – BUT you don’t have to let this stop you from holding a  contest !!


Light Bulb Moment
:  Spy on your competitors to see what they are doing. Go visit other Pages that are holding contests and see what they are doing .  Btw this is called “market research”.  Can’t find any in your niche or businesses similar to yours.

Well then … you will be pleased to hear that there are several contest sites that list all their contests in one place.  Check out these three sites below and see  if you can find something to get you excited …

Whilst looking at their contests, get out your notepad and make a list of the types of contests that appeal to you and how you can incorporate something similar for your Business.
