The first thing to consider is what kind of promotion or giveaway is the most appropriate, participation dynamics, and what kind of prize to offer. Hence, you could run a Social Media giveaway and ask your followers to like or comment to participate. Or maybe a simple Entry Form Giveaway with an attractive prize. Finally, if you want to provide your audience with a little challenge and a bit of fun, why not a gamified promotion with a final prize draw for participants?
Let’s take a look at 5 examples of Blue Monday Giveaways to cheer up your audience!
Blue Monday Giveaways on Social Media
Social Media provides the biggest platform to interact with your audience and start a conversation. Social Media Giveaways give participants and brands the chance of communicating directly and can potentially have a very wide reach as participants themselves share the giveaway with their own community.
A comment-based giveaway on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter is always a good idea. Take a look at these three examples of social media giveaways.
SPC is a company that develops home technology solutions. The used Blue Monday to launch an Instagram Giveaway aimed at drawing traffic to their website and to promote their products. To participate, users had to visit the website, choose the product they would like to win, and mention it on the giveaway post on Instagram.
The home paint brand Principado, also thought of engaging their audience with a Blue Monday Giveaway on social media. To participate, users had to comment and tag a friend. This participation dynamic is useful to make your giveaway go viral.
In this example, the brand Mole Valley Farmers, offered its followers the chance to win a hamper of their products to make Blue Monday a happy day simply by liking and commenting on the post.
