If you’ve been considering running a photo contest on your Facebook page, but not sure it will be worth the time or effort, here’s a look at a Wishpond photo contest that I just ran for The Evolved Dog.
We started with 1,189 fans and in just under two weeks (from Dec. 17th-Dec 29th) we added 290 fans for a grand total of 1,479. I boosted the post with link to contest for $30 and reached 4,664 people with 14 shares and 51 likes. The post garnered 15 comments, 161 link clicks, 3 website conversions and 6 page likes.
We also gathered over 700 email addresses which were automatically integrated with my MailChimp account. Cha-ching.
I was extremely pleased with how easy it is to use the Wishpond features. They offer a 2 week free trial, so check them out and run a “test contest” to see if this might work for you and your Facebook page!
