Benefits of online contests and promotions
Online promotions, social media giveaways, and contests make your followers feel appreciated and special. Why? Because they offer consumers what they want – for free. And in return, your brand receives benefits, too.
Easypromos offers apps for running all kinds of promotions. Here are just some of the advantages for you and your customers:
- Attract online views and followers. Consumers love the thrill and competition of an online giveaway – not to mention the rewards! So online promotions are a highly effective way to advertizing products, services or even your brand.
- Reward followers and customers. If you test a new product via an online promotion, users will feel valued and rewarded. Then they’re more likely to come back to your brand, and recommend it to their contacts.
- Increase brand awareness with viral campaigns. If consumers are happy and satisfied, they are more likely to tell their friends about you. So promotion participants will often share your page and posts with other followers, even without being asked.
