Be careful when you think about doing Facebook competitions.
I decided it was time to launch ‘See a Man About a Blog’ on Facebook so set up a page in order to share my knowledge and expertise there. Having helped others set up Facebook pages and knowing that it can take time to attract likes I decided that my best strategy was to have a competition where the first 50 people who liked me would go into a hat and one lucky winner would receive a 1-hour blog consultation.
The reason for having my tail between my legs is that I subsequently found out that using any of the Facebook features, such as the like button, adding comments, posting pictures,etc, to enter someone into Facebook competitions is against their terms of service and they could quite legitimately take down the page.
So my strategy was blown out of the water and I will now need to take that competition onto a different platform. So a big apology to those who have liked me already on Facebook as I have now migrated the competition to Twitter.
How to Win?
This will be a Twitter exclusive contest. To win you just need to follow me on Twitter and I will pick a winner randomly to win a 1-hr blogging consultation from my first 100 followers.
Note: for those of you who liked me on Facebook and do not have a Twitter account, please send me a message via my contact form and I will enter you into the draw.
I will either contact you via email or by direct message to advise if you have won.
Of course you can still like See a Man About a Blog on Facebook if you wish to get my tail wagging again!
Best wishes and good luck in the competition
