    So I want to increase the amount of people in my Facebook Group. I'm planning to buy a $250 prize, and give it away. So far I think I have 2 options, and I really want the BIGGEST bang for the buck.

    Option 1
    I create a 'draw' where you need to go to my facebook page, and like it, and the first 1000 likes will be entered in the draw. That way I have them locked. So everytime for now and on I post something on the group, it'll appear on their walls. 1000+ people every time.

    Option 2
    I create a 'draw' where you need to re-share the picture in my facebook group. First 1000 people that re-share it will be entered in the draw. I think this way, it will have MORE exposure, BUT people are liking the picture, and not the fanpage.. which I care about...

    So which one should I go for?

    Ok, first off, i think i saw you said your group.. Don't use a group, use a fan page. Groups get posting rights killed after 5k members i think or something like that.. Always use a fan page.

    The second thing, why do you need to go either way? Tell them to like your fan page first and then share :) This way you get both and that will give you the max exposure in my opinion.. Make a fan only visible tab and that way they will have to like your page before they can share and enter the draw..

    Also, why limit it to 1,000 shares? Limit it rather with time then with the number of shares..

    @dejanlesi,

    Hi! Sorry, yeah I meant a FanPage, not a Group! <-- My bad!

    I was also thinking about that, but do you think it might be a bit to many steps!? Image you see a picture of X-BOX or whatever on Facebook and it says, "Here is a chance for you to win this X-BOX! 1. Go to fanpagelink.com and LIKE the page 2. Share This Photo" ... Isnt that a bit to much for asking?

    And the reason I want 1000, instead of time is because if I tell them, "30 days" and in 30 days I get 25 people... That is NO GOOD. But with a solid 1000 people, I know that it can take 2 weeks, or 2 months, but at the end I will have 1000 people. Now I have 9... LOL

    And how about a person having 1000 accounts likes your page in 1 day and get the prize, limit it with 45-60 days....
    and people like and share for any prize worth more than $100.

    This is not a niche where people will create fake accounts, so I'm not worried about that.

    Say first 1000 get a chance to win the prize.
    Double your chances by liking then sharing also!

    Then people have to like it to get entered, and share if they choose to double there chance.

    2 birds with 1 stone ;)

    Be careful with using FB mechanisms for contests, I advised a former client of mine against it. It's better to use these mechanisms on a website page itself. FB are real Nazi's in regards to protecting their brand.

    The way around this?

    Avoid using facebook mechanisms itself, try other clever method; for example have a page in which they enter they have to enter 6 of their friend's emails. Have an auto-responder set-up directing the friends to the FB page.

    I would say shares are better. Shares get more views than likes do.
