    Hey bhaters!

    I am looking for legal way to run some contest on Facebook.

    I am doing SMM for one of the biggest newspaper in my country, and they have fb page with 6.500 fan, its low, and need more. My competitors has more then 50.000, i have batter traffic on website, and have really good newspaper in offline world, so i can use both for promote!


    But I need something that's legal, won't pay for any app, or make any. I don't know how to develop app ...

    I am looking for some suggestion, about some Iframe contest?

    Is legal something that people have pool and answer the questions on iframe tab, and then put e-mail, name, tel. no. in form and i will latter pick up a random people who got prize is something like that legal for FB rules?

    Also is there some contact for Facebook that i can ask them is something legal or not?

    And also if you doing SMM and have some nice exp with contest, please help me, tell me your suggestion what is good for contest, and if possible if its viral?

    I can have really good promotion, but need idea :(
    But it must be legal! :(


    Thanks to all!

    Well, to run a contest legally you really need to consult an attorney as every country has different laws on contests (at least we do in the USA).

    WildFireApps.com is a great solution but, can be extremely costly. Particularly if your running their white label version. Their reps are nice (had a call with one last week) so don't hesitate getting in touch with them.

    I live in Bosnia and here a lot people doing contest with pictures "how have more like he is winner! " it ilegal, but no1 did not get ban! But again i don't want to risk, because its popular brand name in my country and everybody know for them!

    So its don't need to be extremly legal, i think no1 from Facebook will follow my campaign, but again i want to be safe.

    I won't to pay for wildfire app, i want to make something personal, i am thinking about to all people got unique code in newspaper when they buy and to participate in contest need to go on Facebook page to fill out contact form with that code. Is this legal?

    But again i need more idea, this is not really VIRAL but ...

    Thanks

    I think what he really means is "Will facebook ban my employer 's fan page" -> "Am I going to get my ass beaten?" ;)

    I don't think the local laws (if any exist on this issue) would be a problem for a Balkan country (no offense meant) :D
