Facebook Holiday Contests: 12 Last-Minute Super Festive Ideas [Infographic]

Wait, what?! You haven’t put up any contests or other promotions for the holidays yet? No worries! We’ve got 12 really easy Facebook contest ideas that you can implement in minutes, right here! We were inspired to put this infographic together when we looked at aggregated data from ShortStack users.

We analyzed more than 50,000 active Facebook Pages and 300,000 custom campaigns, like contests and giveaways, that serve more than 1.4 billion Facebook fans and, among the things we discovered: Engagement in December increases by as much as 66 percent on custom Facebook apps!

Other data we uncovered about brands using Facebook apps during the month of December:

  •  During December, brands see a 66% increase in contest submissions
  • During December, there’s a 57% increase in custom Facebook Page app shares

  • During December, there’s a 47% increase in custom Facebook Page app views

  • During December, there’s a 33% increase in custom Facebook Page app shares to specific Facebook friends

  • But even if you don’t use apps for your Facebook contests and promotions, you can still put up some engaging contests.

Now who’s ready to get festive on Facebook?
