One of the best ways to delight and engage your social audience is to run a social media contest. Whether creating a backlog of testimonials, developing user-generated content, or just having fun and rewarding your audience, social media contests can be a great tool for any community manager or social media marketer.

“Social media contests are a great way to increase your brand’s visibility,” says Jade Furubayashi, Community Manger for Simply Measured. “By driving a ton of engagement & attracting new users, contests put your brand in the spotlight. This is a good thing, as long as it’s done right.”

And that’s the tricky part. How do you “do it right”?

Simply Measured’s new guide on planning, executing and measuring your social media contest helps you understand your best bets for tactics, venues, and even the laws and rules (yes, there are a few laws on the internet).
