Social Media Contests - Best Practices
Stoneham TV Lunch & Learn
Thursday, July 11, Noon-1:00PM


If there’s one thing that marketers and consumers love equally, it’s giveaways. Branded competitions, contests, or sweepstakes—no matter which form they take, giveaways carry a certain value both for companies and their customers.


You’ve likely seen many brands hosting giveaways on Facebook or Instagram. It’s for a good reason: Social media giveaways can help create brand awareness and drive engagement.


There are a lot of factors that contribute to the success of a social media contest. The prize, the target audience, the eligibility requirements, the platform-specific rules and regulations, and best marketing practices can all make a difference between a successful campaign and a total failure.


At our next lunch & learn on July 11, digital marketing specialist Dennis O’Hara will discuss social media contests and how to run the ones that will be successful for you. Topics include:


  • Types of social media contests and how to decide which kind to run

  • Selecting the appropriate prize, giveaway, or offer

  • Platform-specific rules that govern contests on Facebook and Instagram

  • Using social media contests to drive traffic to your website

  • Making your contest stand out

The program is free and open to all. Lunch will be served from Gaetano’s. Space is limited, so reserve your spot soon!
