Social Media Contests – Easy Winning!

We all follow social media accounts, from our favorite brands to our most cherished personalities and celebrities.  These accounts are always running promotions, contests and giveaways and are the easiest to enter and win.  What makes them so simple is you can enter with a couple clicks on your phone, you can take your lunch break and win big at the same time.  Try a couple tricks to get the most out of your social media persona.

Have a Good Social Media Account

While some contests say winners are chosen at random, chances are, they probably are not.  Carefully decided winners are often selected because the company knows this account will promote their winnings which in turn makes the company win with free advertising.  Be active on your social media platform so the contest judges will see someone who will do something with their win.  Promote the contest on your page and tag the company or account with the giveaway, they will appreciate the shout out and it will put you in good positioning if they are running their giveaway in that manner.

Enter Multiple Ways

Sometimes all you have to do is be following an account to be eligible to win.  Other times, you get more entries by tagging people, promoting in your story feed or other ways of sharing.  Make sure to enter all the different ways you can.  It will not only give you more chances but goes back to being super interactive on your account which makes you look like a winner.  You have to show you really want it.
