24 Jun

Using social media for a good causeUsing the popular social media networks for your personal page or business can be very easy, as well as very different in its application by the user.

In order to create a successful giveaway, the rules of entry must be kept SIMPLE. Once the instructions become too complicated for your fans, they will not participate. If you’re giving a product away on Facebook or Twitter, make sure the guidelines suggest that your followers leave a comment or tweet in response to your giveaway. This engages the consumer and also gives them an incentive to spread the word on your contest to their friends that may be interested in what you are offering.
