Chapter 1

Types of
Facebook
Contests
There is no shortage of options for creating engaging contests on Facebook.
But before you choose one, you need to ask yourself one question:

WHICH TYPE OF CAMPAIGN IS RIGHT FOR YOUR BUSINESS AT THIS MOMENT?

To answer this question, you need to go one step deeper and answer two more questions (Inception!):

1 What is your goal from this campaign?

a. If your goal is to simply get new Facebook fans or increase your email list, then a Sweepstakes is best. Its simple and it has a very
low barrier to entry. This option will maximize your number of entrants.

b. If your goal is to make immediate sales then you can run a group deal, or offer a coupon to push users to buy right away.

c. If your goal is to build a bank of user-generated content to have users vote on and use in the future, then a Photo, Video or
Pinterest Contest is the right choice.

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 6


2 How much engagement do you currently have on your Facebook Page?

If the answer is a low number (<1000 people talking about you in the past week), that means that your fans are not very engaged
with your Facebook Page and/or you dont have a very large fan-base to begin with.

But dont fret! Contests will boost this number quickly!

If you are at this point, we recommend running a Starter Contest - which include Sweepstakes and Vote Contests - which have very
low barriers to entry and will entice a higher percentage of entrants than a contest that requires them to submit a photo or video.

If you have over 1000 people talking about you in the past week, then you are in prime position to run an Intermediate or Advanced
contest which require users to create something or make a purchase to enter. See a full list of different contest options below:

STARTER CONTESTS

Starter Contests have the lowest barrier of entry to any contest. Users simply need to enter
their contact info and click a button to enter:

SWEEPSTAKES VOTE CONTEST


A Sweepstakes is the simplest type of contest - users A Vote Contest is the easiest way to get users to interact with

your Facebook Page.

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 7


INTERMEDIATE CONTESTS

Intermediate Contests require users to submit a piece of user-generated content to enter your contest, but the type of content is
easy enough for most users to create:

Photo Contests are an easy way to entice users to upload a photo and have the
community vote on their favorite to win. With the popularity of camera phones these days,
taking a photo is a very easy thing for most users to do. To maximize entries, choose a
photo theme that is easy for most users to get a photo of.

PHOTO Also - photos are the best type of content, as they are eye-catching and easy to digest, so
CONTEST this is the most recommended type of contest that requires user-generated content.

PHOTO CAPTION CONTEST ESSAY CONTEST


Photo Caption Contests entice users to write a caption (title) An Essay Contest is a great way to get entrants to submit
for a photo that you upload to enter. The community then their thoughts, feedback and stories for a chance to win. You

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 8


ADVANCED CONTESTS

Advanced Contests require users to upload a more time-consuming piece of content or actually pay money to get something. This
will require a very large audience (over 10,000 fans minimum) to be successful, as only a very small percentage of users will take the
time to enter:

Entice users to create a video and submit it to win a prize. This is bit harder to do than
simply taking a photo, but it has the potential to give you great user content for your
brand. Just like in Photo Contest, the community votes on their favorite to win.

Chapter 2

How 3rd Party


Contest apps
work on your
Facebook Page

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 10


3rd Party Contest apps live on specified
tabs on your Facebook Page
(See on the side).

To add an app to a tab on your Facebook Page,


you simply need to connect to the app during
the contest setup process and the app will
add automatically. You can then create a post
tailored towards your fans, followers and email
list that includes a link back to your contest tab.

Here are 3 ways to optimize your Contest Tab:

1 Change the Tab Image:

All apps come with a default image, but you can change it to fit your brand and contest by following these steps:

1. Click on the drop-down arrow on the far-right of your Pages tabs


2. Hover over the Contest Tab and click on the pencil icon in the top-right corner
3. Click Edit Settings
4. In the pop-up window, next to Custom Tab Image click Change. On this next page you can upload your tab image.
Please note: Tab image must be 111px by 74px.
5. Close the new page and click OK in the pop-up window, and youre done!

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 11


2 Change the Tab Name:

Change the tab name to a short call-to-action by following these steps:

1. Click on the drop-down arrow on the far-right of your Pages tabs


2. Hover over the Contest Tab and click on the pencil icon in the top-right corner
3. Click Edit Settings
4. In the pop-up window, next to Custom Tab Name, enter your custom name, then click Save and then OK, and youre
done!

3 Change the Placement of the Tab:

If your Contest Tab is not one of the top 3, it will not be seen unless you click on the drop-down arrow, which very few users will. To
place it in the top 3 follow these steps:

1. Click on the drop-down arrow on the far-right of your Pages tabs


2. Hover over the Contest Tab and click on the pencil icon in the top-right corner
3. Under Swap position with: click on a tab that is currently in the top 3 and your Contest Tab will then switch places with it
and will be shown in the top 3

Chapter 3

Incorporating
your Brand in
Creative Ways
Maximize your Contests by including your brand in interesting ways. This will boost the amount of people
actually talking about your brand - as opposed to simply talking about the contest itself!

Here are some easy ways to incorporate your brand into your contest:

Let entrants decide on your next product line or marketing campaign via a Vote Contest
Have entrants caption a photo of one of your products in a Photo Caption Contest
Have entrants create boards on Pinterest that include their favorite items that you sell
Have entrants write an essay about how they use your products or why they like them
so much
Have entrants enter a photo of themselves using your products or at your business
Make sure the Title of your Contest and the Contest Image incorporate your brand - as
these are the things that will get shared and will be seen the most.

DO NOT - make users do something like post


I LOVE BRAND X on their Facebook Wall - not only
is this against Facebooks Policy, it could potentially
make your company appear annoying and cheap.

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 14


Chapter 4

Using
Facebook Ads
to Boost
your Contest
Facebook Advertising is a powerful platform to target new users and give your contest a boost!

Which type of Ad should I run?

If you have 500+ fans you can run


a Promoted Post (see on the side)

To use Promoted Page Posts to promote your contest follow these steps:

1. Make a post on your Facebook Page that includes a link to your contest
2. Go to that post on your Facebook Page and click Promote Post in the bottom-right corner of the post
3. Set your budget (see below for budget recommendations)

- Promoted Posts last for 3 days - so you need to make a new one every 3 days

If you have under 500 fans, Facebook does not allow you to run Promoted Posts, but you can run a Promoted Page
Post (Yes - it is different than a Promoted Post).

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 16


These types of ads appear in the sidebar of
Facebook, as opposed to the News Feed in
the middle. While not as effective as Promoted
Posts, for Pages with less than 500 fans they
are your best option.

To use Promoted Page Posts to promote your contest follow these steps:

1. Make a post on your Facebook Page that includes a link to your contest
2. Go to www.facebook.com/ads
3. Select your Facebook Page
4. Select Promote Page Posts

See below for targeting and budgeting!

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 17


Who should I target? (For Promoted Page Posts only)

There are two groups to target your ads to:

You can target those users with the Precise Interests feature. In this field you can enter your competitors names and
target their Facebook fans. You can also target based on Broad Categories, including Maritial Status, wider interests
like Food & Drink and Jazz/Blues music

Keep your audience to approximately 100,000 people - this is the optimal size of a group
that you want to target.

If youre over 100,000: Limit the ages and geography to your most targeted groups and decrease the number of
Precise Interests you have selected
If youre under 100,000: Add more Precise Interests to target a larger number of users who have interests related to
your business/industry

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 18


Chapter 5

Cross-Channel
Promotion
Use the Following Guidelines for Promoting your
Contest Across Different Channels

Post to Twitter once per day (Tweets get lost extremely quickly, so you
very rarely need to worry about spamming your Twitter followers as only a
small percentage will see each tweet due to the sites constantly updating
nature.)

Post to Google+ once every 3 days

Send one email to your email list (getting multiple emails about the same
thing will get you an unpleasant number of unsubscribes.)

Add a banner to the home page of your website for the duration of your
contest (have it click-through to your contest on your Facebook Page in a
new browser tab)

Promote in-store and on the street using posters that include QR codes,
NFC chips and short links for users to enter on their mobile phones

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 20


Chapter 6

Like-gating
Explained
The easiest way to increase Likes for your Facebook Page - within
Facebooks Promotions Guidelines is to like-gate your contest.

A like-gate is usually a simple


image with a text telling users
who have not yet liked your
Facebook Page that they need
to like it in order to access the
current contest.

How does Like-gating work?

Through the Facebook Open Graph, 3rd party apps can detect whether a Facebook user has liked your Page or not, so only non-
fans will be shown this image.

Once a non-fan likes your Facebook Page, the app will automatically reload to show the default entry or voting page on which the
user can enter the contest.

Most 3rd party Facebook apps, including all of Wishponds, have like-gating as a built-in feature, so that they can easily be enabled
for any of your contests.

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 22


Is Like-Gating Against Facebooks Promotions Guidelines?
No! As the act of liking the Facebook Page does not enter a user into a contest, it is within Facebooks Promotions Guidelines. On
the flip side, if you run a contest that uses Facebooks functionality as an entry or voting mechanism, then you are in violation of
Facebooks Promotions Guidelines.

Here are some examples of specific contest actions that are not allowed:
Commenting on a picture on a Facebook Page to enter a contest
Posting a Facebook Pages Wall to enter a contest
Having a winner of a contest be determined by the number of likes their entry receives
Having users post something on their own Wall in order to be eligible to win a contest

What is the typical drop-off rate for Like-Gated


Contests?
Typically you can expect a very minimal (~10%) drop-off rate for your contest due
to a like-gate. Using a like-gate is more than worth this drop-off, as the other
90%+ of non-fans who do like your Page will open a new avenue to market them
again and again.

I suck at PhotoShop! How can I get a


professional like-gate image for my Contest?

Most 3rd party Facebook apps, including all of Wishponds, have default like-gate
images that look great and are tailored to the type of contest youre running.

Chapter 7

Collecting
Contact Info
and Social Data
via Facebooks
Open Graph
One important stipulation in Facebooks Promotions Guidelines is that you cannot contact a contest winner via Facebook. This
means that you need to collect an entrants email address and/or phone number upon entry in order to contact them.

You can collect entrants email addresses automatically via Facebooks Open Graph, but having entrants opt-in by entering their
email address manually is the best way to go to avoid being marked as spam.

What is the Facebook Open Graph?


The Open Graph is Facebooks database of user data that includes every Facebook users personal information from their age, to
who their friends over to which Pages they like. It is also the platform that 3rd party apps connect to in order to pull valuable user
data to help businesses target their customers more effectively.

How do 3rd party Contest apps use the Open Graph?

When a user enters a contest, they will be asked to connect with the contest app in a pop-up window that appears. This pop-up will
describe the app, which data will be transferred through the app to the business running the contest, and what the business has
permission to do to their account.

These are the two Permissions that Wishpond apps (and most other Contest apps) ask for in this
transaction:
1. Basic Information: This includes age, gender, location and Facebook Likes of a user. This information allows you to analyze who
your users are - and send targeted emails by segmenting users based on these data points - directly within your Wishpond account

2. Ability to Post on the users behalf (optional): This allows our application to make a post on the users wall that invites each of their
friends on Facebook to enter your contest

What is the typical drop-off rate that occurs due to this transaction?

Businesses normally see a ~10% drop-off due to some users not wanting to complete this transaction. This is definitely worth the
drop-off - not only do you get to see in-depth analytics about your users, but you also get reach to each entrants entire Facebook
network through the invitation that is posted on their wall. And this reach is much more effective than an ad.
Chapter 8

Measuring
Contest ROI
How do I know if my contest was successful? What ROI should I expect?

Every contest will get different results depending on many factors - below is a list of
returns you can expect from running a contest:

More traffic/likes/engagement for your Facebook Page

New emails for your email list

New Sales (this occurs for both group deals and other contests. You will find out how to
follow-up with entrants to convert them into sales in Ch. 9, Following-up with Contest
Entrants )

How do I measure my Contests ROI?

In Wishponds Merchant Admin you can view participation statistics in real-time to see
how effective each promotion is that you make for getting contest entrant

You can use Wishponds Analytics to see exactly which demographics are entering your
campaigns to see if your contest attracted the desired types of customers

You can use Google Analytics to track conversions from the follow-up emails sent to
contest entrants to see how many purchases were made post campaign

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 27


Chapter 9

Following-up
with Contest
Entrants
In terms of turning contest entrants into customers, this is the most important step.

Follow these 3 easy steps for following up with entrants to maximize your contests
PR and sales potential:

1. Post the winners name on each of your social channels

This will make users happy to associate a real person with winning the prize, and will compel the winner to
share about your brand and the contest with his/her friends
This will also alleviate any concerns/grievances that some entrants may have that no one was actually
awarded the prize stated in the contest (these concerns arise much more often that you think!)

2. Email the winner and ask them to send a picture of themselves with the prize when they receive it (this image
is BIG for your companys PR!)

3. Email non-winners with a small consolation prize

Losing is not a nice feeling - even when its in a contest. Make every entrant feel like a winner by sending
them an exclusive prize - such as a 25% off coupon to your business - and telling them to stay tuned to your
Facebook Page for your next contest.

Chapter 10

Facebook
Contests
for Mobile
Nearly 40% of Facebook users access the site on their mobile phones.
If your contest is not optimized for mobile then you are missing out on this massive group of users.

Why?

Currently Facebook does not support 3rd party applications in any of its mobile environments - including their mobile apps and
mobile website.

So how do you optimize your contest for mobile users?

Wishpond has the answer!

All of our apps come with a unique redirect link that can be used when promoting your contest.
When you send out a contest promo, include this redirect link as the contest call-to-action. When
a user clicks on it, our system checks to see if they are on a mobile/tablet device or a desktop
computer:

If the user is on a desktop they will be directed to the contest on your Facebook Page
If the user is on a mobile/tablet device they will directed to a mobile webpage (hosted by
Wishpond) where users can enter and engage with your contest, just as if they were on
Facebook

Quick Tip: Need to get this redirect link quickly? Simply go


to your contest entry page and click the Tweet button at the
bottom of the entry panel. A Twitter pop-up will appear with a
default tweet that includes this link. You can simply copy that
link and paste it in your next promo.

Chapter 11

Facebook Policy
& Promotions
Guidelines
Although it may seem overwhelming, Facebooks Promotions Guidelines are pretty simple.
And if youre using a 3rd party application like Wishpond, your contest will be designed to fit
within these guidelines, so you wont need to worry about it!

Here is a brief rundown of the most relevant points and an


explanation for each:

Promotions on Facebook must be administered within Apps on Facebook.com, either on a


Canvas Page or a Page App.

Meaning: Promotions cannot be run directly on a Facebook Pages Wall - it must be housed
within a Facebook Page Tab, or on a separate Facebook App Page.

Promotions on Facebook must include the following:

1. A complete release of Facebook by each entrant or participant.


2. Acknowledgment that the promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by,
or associated with Facebook.
3. Disclosure that the participant is providing information to [disclose recipient(s) of
information] and not to Facebook.

Meaning: You must explicitly state that you the merchant are running this contest and that
Facebook is not involved with it in any way (Wishponds applications have this disclaimer
built-in).

wishpond EBOOK The Complete Guide to Facebook Contests and Promotions 33


You must not condition registration or entry upon the user taking any action using any
Facebook features or functionality other than liking a Page, checking in to a Place, or
connecting to your app. For example, you must not condition registration or entry upon the
user liking a Wall post, or commenting or uploading a photo on a Wall.

Meaning: You cannot use a Facebook feature - such as liking or checking in - as a condition to
enter a contest

You must not use Facebook features or functionality as a promotions registration or


entry mechanism. For example, the act of liking a Page or checking in to a Place cannot
automatically register or enter a promotion participant.

Meaning: You cannot use a Facebook feature - such as liking or checking in - as the means of
entering a contest

You must not use Facebook features or functionality, such as the Like button, as a voting
mechanism for a promotion.

Meaning: You cannot use a Facebook feature - such as the like button - as a way for users to
vote on contest entries.

You must not notify winners through Facebook, such as through Facebook messages, chat,
or posts on profiles (timelines) or Pages.

Meaning: You must use email, phone, etc. to contact contest winners. Wishpond Contest apps
allow you to ask for this information upon entry, so you will not be stuck!

Pro Tips
Pro Tips for Maximizing your Contest

1. Post about your contest frequently

a. If you are using Promoted Posts: Make one post every 3 days (as this is how long a Promoted Post will
run for).
b. If you are not using Promoted Posts: Make one post every day

2. Run contests for 1-2 weeks at a time

3. Run contests frequently (1-2 per month) - this will keep users engaged with your Page, which will boost your
Pages EdgeRank and in turn create more and more engagement with your Facebook Page (yes, just like a
snowball!)

4. Unless youre an electronics retailer (such as Apple), never give away an iPad as a prize. People who enter your
contests will be interested in the iPads, not your brand.

a. Converting those people into customers of your products will be next to impossible. For this reason,
always make the prize a gift card to your store, or an item you sell.

5. Post your contests on popular contesting websites. These websites attract thousands of users per day who
love to enter and share contests. They can bring you tons of entrants, especially if you dont currently have much
engagement on your Facebook Page.
