How Contests are Great for Your Marketing Campaign
If you are consumer who uses the internet to search for great buys, it isn’t uncommon for you to run into an internet marketing contest. They are everywhere! Almost every website or supplier hold contests for their consumers; it’s just the thing to do.
These contest that are on the internet and social media sites aren’t such a bad idea though. Look at Facebook for instance; if you have a Facebook account for your specific business and post on it regularly, you are creating a beneficial social media presence. However, if you hold a contest through Facebook where people comment to win, then you can take your business’ marketing to the next level.
Contests on social media sites spread like wildfire. People share and re-post the contest so there is more traffic through your website. Let’s say you post a link that connects directly to your site; your traffic will skyrocket if you’re offering a prize that is well worth the 5 seconds it takes to click the link and answer properly (and almost everything is worth that small opportunity cost.)
Contests have been around the marketing world for a while, and there’s a reason why they don’t cease: they work to advertise and market your business.
Try and host a contest for your business. You won’t be disappointed with the result.
