  4. Promote Your Prize Draw On-line
  5. Insert a link directly to the post from your website or email newsletter.

    Tag & Share Warning

    Most businesses ask prize draw entrants to tag their friends and/or share the post in order to enter the draw. This contravenes Facebook Pages Terms so if you choose to do so, it is at your own risk (beware of Facebook “jail”!)

  6. Promote Your Prize Draw Off-line
  7. Instruct people to visit your Facebook page and scroll down until they find the Prize Draw post. Promote this in your newsletter, on a DLE, when telemarketing and door knocking. Add options to enter by phone, text or email too. This makes it easy for everyone to enter using whatever method they find most convenient.
