The main purpose of having a contest is to gather as much traffic as possible and lots of link juice. In order to carry out a successful contest, we need to consider two important factors. First is the weight of the prizes. It needs to be attractive and heavy enough to create an impact from the viewers. The prizes need to be attractive enough to make viewers participate in the contest. Second is the initial force to kick off the contest so that it can catch up enough momentum to move on without slowing down. That means you need to promote and spread the words to cover as many viewers as possible. This requires a plan which covers the entire online channel including Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, emails, forums, bloggers and advertising platform.
So is Blog Engage doing a good job in planning and preparing the contest? Well, I’ll let you decide on that.
