    Seems to me that Facebook want you to get more LIKEs.. Using their ads :)

    Before running any promo, I’d consider how many could be reach if that budget went to awesome content and some ads

    Thanks for this Jeff. This is the most well laid out and reasoned article I have read on this subject. Very helpful.

    Hey Katherine,

    You’re right, this is a good option for quick competitions. The example you give (personalized business cards printing) is a great one! Don’t forget to include rules and the usual Facebook disclaimer though.

    • Monica Montero Martin

      Is there a standard set of rules/disclaimer we post when doing this?

      • Emeric

        Hi @monicamonteromartin:disqus, yes, there is, yu still need to insert a link to your rules somewhere, and also to post the usual disclaimer stating that the promotion is not associated with Facebook, etc.

        You can see an example here: https://www.facebook.com/sixtrentacaruk/posts/655425441136462
