    Basicly, im trying to host a competition on my fan page to drive more fans to the page etc cut a long story short im looking for the best possible ways to do this..

    Ive thought about people who exist on the page inviting friends and whoever had the most would win the giveaway but not sure if that can be tracked, other than that i just wanted to ask some of you seasoned fb marketers if you have attempted such a thing and how did you go about it?

    Cheers ;)

    It depends what your page is about? Is it a niche or complexly random?

    niche is gaming and 90% are xbox users. 26,000 active users, just looking to generate more buzz. The page is also part of a gaming business

    What are you looking to active in the long run? Are you just looking to build numbers and moneitize or sharing your community/website?

    well i dont even know if this is allowed on facebook actually, your not even allowed to message a user if they have won via facebook messaging, wtf ??

    You may require that an entrant like a Page, check in to a Place, or connect to your Platform integration before providing their full entry information for a promotion. You will not condition entry to the promotion upon taking any other action on Facebook, for example, liking a status update or photo, commenting on a Wall, or uploading a photo.

    WTF?

    There are a few different things you can do.

    1. You could setup the 3 STEP FBML page. (It's the viral script)
    2. You could start a contest using the site wildfireapp. com/tour

    With wildfire you can create:
    Your company creates a branded interactive campaign using our easy-to-use software. Available campaign formats include sweepstakes, user-generated video, photo & essay-based contests and coupon give-aways.

    This is directly from the site. These help create interaction.

    Hope this helps.

    yeah i saw wildfireapp, i guess thats the only "white" way of going about running contests, as it looks like facebook have some ground rules and require a huge deposit if running them. No idea though, bit of a new area.

    Maybe you should be targeting the parents of these individuals? That would seem like a much more targeted demographic seeing as the 13 - 18 year olds can't purchase anything legally.
