Win viral followers with a Twitter Competition

Win with Twitter Competitions

Managing your social media platforms in an engaging lively manner will always win you more contacts, add a little fun and controversy and your sure to get people talking about your posts.

In the last few weeks Facebook announced yet another u turn and decided to allow page owners to run competitions and giveaway’s without the need for a pre-approved application.

Great news for anyone wanting to create a viral buzz around your social media! That got me thinking about Twitter and the opportunity for re-tweets share and viral buzz that can be generated around your competition.

Twitter has teamed up with Competwition a great app that has been running in beta for the last few years and looks set to develop it’s strategy for the future.

Colourful brands and big business are utilising this platform to promote giveaways and competitions for as little as 7 up to as many as 28 days, allowing you the leverage to giveaway vouchers, coupons or small prizes to huge giveaways that really can generate some much needed attention.

However setting up your competition and leaving it to run is a mistake easily made by the novice!

To help your competition go viral you need to get it as much attention as possible in the first few days.

Once followers begin to send out your message you can begin to relax and watch the tweets roll.

There are several ways you can help get your competition the media attention it deserves in the first few days, inviting to people to re-tweet using platforms like AddMeFast and LikesASAP will help drive traffic to your Twitter page and get people re-tweeting your message.

It is always a good idea to come up with a unique hashtag i.e.:  #diaryofasocialmediamanager that you can use solely for the competition, this way followers can search for your post easily.
