There are countless ways to engage your audience through this comment-based giveaway. We even have templates to help you build, create and jump-start your promotion.  Here is a Father’s Day template to showcase the build.

You could run this giveaway for users who comment on a post on your Facebook Page. Ask users to answer an open question, e.g. “What’s your favorite childhood memory about your dad?”  It is as easy as updating the template to describe the prize, and edit the participation dates. Then publish the post and images on your Timeline.

There is another problem on Facebook that we can help solve directly with a Facebook Giveaway.

You don’t own your leads on Facebook. Your Page, and all its engagement and followers, depend on the social network. So how do you turn followers into website visitors, email subscribers… and eventually, customers?

That’s where a giveaway with registration comes in. After building up an active, engaged community on Facebook, your page can act to convert them with a simple prize draw that collects information you can utilize directly.

You can share a promotion exclusively on Facebook as a reward for loyal Page followers, then ask your page followers to share their email contact details. Each leads can then be nurtured and convert – without relying exclusively on social media. This separate Entry Form Giveaway will be featured on in the coming weeks.

As noted, you could do a similar promotion on a smaller scale, but our  promotion allows you to tap into some powerful benefits.
