    I would definitely turn the just the way you
    planned it. Your methods are just simple, general in a way but I know it is
    effective as well.

    Also, a catchy theme and title of the game or contest would add up the thrill to your audience.

    Good reviews and thanks for posting Alex!

    I found and “kingged” this on the Internet marketing social site -Kingged.com

    An excellent post for beginners. I particularly liked ‘if you are a cupcakes’ shop, offer a cupcake and not an ipad.’ I have designed a facebook page for our next product but we plan to offer the product for free at launch (say, it is an online photo sharing tool). I had thought of offering amazon gift voucher for the contest winners but this post makes me think again now. Can you suggest something what we can offer for contest winners (considering that our product is free to use)? I appreciate your directions!

      Hey Vinish! Maybe something as simple as sharing the user photo from the corporate account to get more exposure. Or, a $10 giftcard to a Kodak Kiosk to print photos that they are posting on your site. Goodluck with your contest! – Alex

    My readers are mostly bands and musicians — I have suggested that they offer to play the winning fan a special song at their next gig. The contests increase follows (hopefully), build engagement AND get that fan and all their friends to their next gig. Win all around, and it doesn’t cost anything other than perhaps a bit of rehearsal time (and maybe swallowing their pride — Brown Eyed Girl anyone?)

    Thanks a very interesting contribution to the ever-growing body of Facebook literature! I appreciate the specificity of focus, the clarity of prose, and in particular, found certain insights (“group deal” for example) really spot on, and a great strategy reminder. Cheers for writing this, will be a pleasure to share …
