Getting a Facebook competition up and running is simple and can be a lot of fun. Below are 6 great ideas that are easy to execute and get your local community involved with your business.

  1. Give away movie tickets asking locals to name their favourite actor and tag the person they want to take with them
  2. Give away tickets to a local sporting event or festival asking locals to tag their favourite local cafe or restaurant
  3. Give away a pet grooming voucher asking locals to submit a funny picture of their pet as a comment to enter
  4. Give away an Easter hamper, a glass jar filled with Easter eggs, ask people to guess the number of Easter eggs to win. Entries can be submitted by adding a comment with the user's best guess.
  5. School colouring competitions are a great all year round competition idea, ask parents to enter their child's drawing as part of comments to the post. Prizes can be anything from a dinner for too a pushbike.

How to Pick a Winner

You can do this manually by drawing a name out of a hat, but if your promotion goes well there will be far too many entries to keep track of. Use a tool to randomly select a comment form the promotion post or a more advance promotion management tool to pick a winner.
