There are five things you should explain when doing a giveaway. It is very important that you write them in the photo description and that they are easy to understand.
What are the rules: Twitter someone, follow your profile, use a specific hashtag, or all of the above.Say which is the prize (preferably that the photo you upload is of the prize).Define when the contest ends.Say when you are going to announce the winner.Mention if there are any restrictions (for example, that only people who live in a certain city or state can participate).
Twitter comments to participate
One of the most used, and the most helpful that you get to know new people. I recommend it if you are just starting out on Instagram.
When a person posts 3 of their friends in the comments, chances are that at least two of them will start following you too. If those two tag three other friends, a chain will be created that will fill you with followers.
Pro Tip: Don’t ask contestants to tag their friends in the photo, to do so in the comments. Instagram punishes posts where there are tagged people who are not in the photo.
Like the photo to participate
This option is the fastest for users, which means that there may be more participants with this option.
All you have to do is give Like the picture where you promote the contest and now with that part.
Remember to use the legend “Double tap to participate” or “Click the little heart to participate”.
If you still don’t have many followers, I recommend asking that they also follow you.
Complete the Challenge
This dynamic is more focused on generating conversation and a bit of a “fight” between the participants.
The idea is that you publish a photo that has a challenge that the participants must guess or answer.
Chances are that more than one person has the correct answer, so this contest is ideal to give away discount coupons for your store.
The more winners there are, the more buyers you will have!
Selfie or Photo Contest
We leave the most fun for last. This idea is to ask your followers to share a selfie or photograph where the content is related to your brand.
For example, if you sell shoes, ask your followers to share a photo with their best shoe + bag combination. If you sell makeup, ask them to share a selfie.
The best thing is that the winner is chosen by you instead of leaving it to chance.
Remember to create a specific hashtag for this contest, and that to participate it is necessary that everyone put it on their photo. This will help you easily filter the photos that are from your contest.
