March Marketing Tip
Build Your Business With a Contest
By Stacy Carlton AIFD, CFD
Contest Marketing is a powerful but under used tool in our industry. Hosting a photo contest on Instagram is relatively easy and will increase your social media viewership. There are so many ways to host a contest. Here are three options to get you started.
Invite your followers to post a photo taken in your shop or studio, at an event or class you present, or of something you have created. Create a hashtag for the contest and follow along.
"Submit your vote" photo contests are easy to enter (just click a button!) and loyal customers will recruit friends and family to vote for their photo.
The easiest of the three photo contest approaches is the "caption the photo" contest where viewers caption a photo that you share. The best caption wins a service that you provide or something beautiful that you create.
A follow-up post or a blog covering the contest results will generate even more buzz!
