    Hey everyone,

    I am starting my contest with king sumo app soon. My goal is to get as much emails as possible. Niche MMO, prize Instabuilder license. Could you tell me where is the best place to announce my contest to get contestants? I sent an email to my existing subscribers but i don't have a lot of them and i started FB ad campaign too, but i feel that it is not enough. Is there any other good options for me? It can be paid, nevermind
    Thanks in advance!

    I don't think emailing your email subscribers is going to help you get more of them...

    My contest has "refer a friend" option which increase chance of winning... So i hope it will help me. But I don't feel comfortable with Facebook ads, so i am searching the ways to announce my contest elsewhere

    I already launched FB ad, and got no success yet. $20 spent at the moment, 3500 reached and just 13 website clicks with no conversions :( Targeting settings - 22-48 age, USA, interestest - affiliate marketing, landing pages, digital marketing and email marketing. Prize - Instabuilder license. What could be the problem? And is there any other options without social media?
    Sorry for asking so much, but it is very important moment for list building... Thanks in advance :)

    What about paying some instagram outreach campaign you can get some pretty big names to mention your product for a small budget and you really get your moneys worth from what I have seen since the ad space isnt oversaturated yet.

    Deal sites if it's actually a good contest.

    Try a message board (Reddit for example) that fits into your niche. Some places don't like blatant advertising though so make sure it 'benefits' their community some how.
