Email Leads Using Social Media Contests

EmailSocial media contests can be a great way of increasing your number of email leads. However, there are some basic things to remember, and here are some of the most important.

Choose The Type Of Contest

There’s many different contest types to choose from, and promote by way of social media, ranging from a photo contest to giving away a small prize in return for an email address (giveaways). A photo contest can appeal to a wide audience because there is a creative process rather than the more random nature of a sweepstake.

1. Name Your Price

One main point to remember is to include price tags in any pins you originally post or repin. Despite what some people think, a lot of users who browse Pinterest are looking to buy certain things, and not just to gain some creative inspiration.

These figures are quite enlightening, but make sure you’re not using Pinterest for the sole purpose of flogging your product. Take a benevolent approach to all of your communities, and try to find a good balance of both inspiration and product information.
