Run Competitions and Giveaways To Create Viral Content and Build Your List Fast
A good way to go viral is with competitions and giveaways. These get people hooked in to winning something and are highly shared and engaged with.
It’s important to make sure the competition you come up with doesn’t go against the terms of service of any of the social media platforms you use.
You can’t ask people to like a page or tag, someone, as a way to enter anymore.
Types of competitions and giveaways could include:
- Comment to win
- Share or retweet to enter
- Photo caption contest
- Best comment competition
- Play to win game
- Vote to win
