and the winner is

Everyone likes free stuff, right?

You’ll rarely come across someone who says “Oh man, I wish I had paid more for that!” No! So when it comes to promoting your business, an enter-to-win contest is a good way to reach consumers in your demographic, gather their information for future marketing, and establish a relationship with them; show them that you’re a business that values their clients. Your giveaway doesn’t have to be anything grand, but you do want it to be a desirable item or service, and something that is as no cost to them. Something “free” is always going to be more enticing than a coupon or percentage off.

So how does one run a contest? Through social media, of course! Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, etc… How do you start? How do you spread the word? How do you keep people’s attention and what kind of “fine print” do you need?  This great article from Vertical Response gives us 12 Tips To Running a Social Media Contest.
