Contests are a popular way for businesses to bring awareness to their products. Facebook and other social media platforms have rules that many do not know exist. It’s important to be smart when you use social media to promote your business.
On June 17, 2014, you have the opportunity to learn more about using social media to engage with contests. Attendees will learn how to run contests through Facebook that meet Facebook’s current (TOS) Terms of Service. Other platforms will be discussed, but not in as much depth as Facebook. We are offering a HANDS ON class at the North Iowa Regional Commerce Center at 9 North Federal, Downtown Mason City.
Donna Hup will be our lead presenter! Here’s the expertise that Donna brings to this class:
Donna Hup blogs at donnahup.com. She blogs about giveaways, recipes, reviews and much more. She has 2 years experience of running daily giveaways on and with Facebook as well as other social media channels. She has worked with numerous companies including Disney, Staples, Build a Bear, Suave, Hasbro, P&G, Hickory Farms and more. She has run more than 3,000 giveaways and all have been Facebook and FTC compliant. She builds bridges between companies and their consumers. She is able to increase both fan base and interaction through giveaways on multiple social media platforms.
Sara Broers of Travel With Sara and All In An Iowa Mom’s Day will also present at this session.
