Who doesn’t love winning? And winning something from a brand you love? That’s icing on the cake. Contests and giveaways have proven to be effective promotional strategies for decades, dating back to the ancient days of the local mom and pop shops. Remember the days when you would optimistically place your business card in the glass bowl sitting near the cash register at your favorite coffee or sandwich shop in hopes of winning a free meal? Today’s “glass bowls” have simply been replaced with intriguing graphics and widespread communication provided largely by social media.
As a business owner, much of your time is likely spent navigating through the pressures of acquiring new followers while maintaining continuous interactions with your current consumers. This challenge can easily be achieved with online contests and giveaways, making them a win-win for everyone. Not only do they bring out everyone’s competitive nature (resulting in someone winning a prize!), they provide engaging content that furthers your company’s brand and strengthens consumer loyalty.
