You can easily gain more followers, likes, shares, and posts as your followers are likely to join your contest just to get something they want. We recommend you used the products that sell well (or highly in demand) as your marketing price as users will more likely to participate.

Aside from that, this is also the perfect opportunity for you to utilize the connection you have with other influencers in your field of expertise. Kindly ask them to promote your contest to their followers. If you’re already close with an influencer, then you might be in luck as they will most likely volunteer to promote it to their followers without requesting for any payments.
