Tell me about a successful giveaway you hosted. What made it so successful. Or tell me about a giveaway that completely flopped. What went wrong?
I’m planning to make a giveaway project.
Thank you so much. Loved the video.
I’m doing a giveaway on Facebook
Really good video. I especially the emphasize about only working with people relevant to your business. And only use a prize that your target audience would want to keep the quality of followers who enter high.
I’d also add another lesson we learned the hard way: be careful what winner/comment picker you use. Most of them (including the ones listed) don’t use the official Instagram/Facebook API and scrape content, which can get your account banned. Others even ask for your credentials, which is a no-no. The only free app officially approved that we found is Popsmash, which also tracks stats and other stuff. So whatever you use, do your research first because ‘no login required’ sounds great but could get your Instagram account banned.
Love watching your video ❤️
