Facebook Marketing Tips Contest Winner: Contests

The winning entry in the “Best Marketing Tips for Facebook” competition held by Fanzila: “Create a contest on your page and provide news and relevant information to your visitors.”

The Tel Aviv, Israel-based social application developer received hundreds of contributions from social media experts, and the winner, with 44 percent of the vote, was including contests or competitions on Facebook pages.

The entry quoted above came from Shreyas Gowda of Karnataka, India, who won an Android tablet and a one-year premium Fanzila account. Other popular entries included:

  • Turn your visitors into a community by giving them a forum to share their thoughts and ideas;
  • Create quality content and update it regularly;
  • Use advertising to get your page to start growing; and
  • Design your page nicely.

Obviously, none of these tips qualify as evolutionary, but sometimes a reminder about the basics can’t hurt.
