Build Hype with a Video or Other UGC-Collection Contest

Big brand marketers are using user-generated content (UGC) to collect photo and video testimonials from fans, participants and event attendees. When repurposing the collected content in ads, social media posts, and other marketing channels, UGC becomes a hugely influential marketing practice.

The persuasiveness of UGC is especially evident for the music and events industry. Much like the magic of word-of-mouth marketing, the visual nature of UGC is the best way to crowdsource excitement and build hype.

For example, consider music festival lovers who may be interested in the High Sierra Music Festival. After scrolling through #highsierramusicfestival posts, on-the-fencers and those suffering from FOMO (the fear of missing out) are more likely to pull the trigger and get tickets.

Curate a custom collection of UGC with a branded hashtag and bring it all together in one place – for example, by displaying a gallery on a landing page. You can even turn your UGC into an engaging voting contest. When participants work to get votes, they reach out to people outside of your normal audience, expanding your brand’s reach.

Here’s an example of a video contest requiring a specific hashtag to collect video entries. The videos can be displayed within the campaign, and can even be voted on.
