    Have you done them? Are they worth it?

    Not so much a giveaway - but rather, creating a custom tag, getting followers to tag their photos & then featuring them.

    At what point is this sort of thing worth exploring? How many followers should you have?

    Not worth it.
    I did a contest with Gleam.io once, wasn't worth it.
    Just a waste of time and money.

    I haven't done any contests, but i have done giveaways and those are very worth it when done right. I had a start up tee company that I boosted for a friend and did giveaways at 5k followers and 10k followers. Both giveaways got 500-1500 followers within 2 days of giveaways with only about a 1% dropoff after giveaway.

    Each niche is different though you have to engage your audience, and give something away people actually want. You can give away a bag of toothpicks and then say its not effective LOL

    Definitely worth exploring. It's up to you to create your own formula and what you might think will be successful with your niche. But yeah people will spend like hours trying to get something that cost a dollar free lol
