Q: How do I run a contest on Facebook

We suggest embedding your contest on your website and then promote it on Facebook. So you don’t have to worry about Facebook’s restrictions.

Q: Can I reward entrants for sharing to social media?

There isn’t an option to reward entrants simply for sharing. However, we offer a refer-a-friend feature that rewards participants who share your contest with higher chances to win. Learn more about refer-a-friend contests by reading our post, “Can I Reward Participants for Sharing My Contest or Giveaway on Social Media?”

Q: How do I run a contest on Instagram?

Instagram does not allow campaigns to be published directly to their platform. We suggest embedding your contest on your website and then promote it on Instagram. Read “How to do an Instagram Giveaway.”

Q: Can I just create a contest and expect to start seeing entries?

You can’t expect people to enter your contest if they don’t know about it. Promotion is key for any contest. This can be done through ads, sharing on social media, emails, in-store promotions, etc. Learn how to promote your contest with our guide here.
