    Learned a lot on this site so figured i should share a bit. Let's get to it:

    I own my own eCommerce site to which i sell products i make. My goal was to increase (start) our social media branding but since im a fan of instagram that's where i decided to start with.

    So i figured my best bet would be to do a contest/giveaway:

    1) Create a page on your site for the contest. This should have all the details rules etc. Mine read as follow:


    1. Follow us on:
      Instagram ? yourusername
      Twitter ? yourusername
      Facebook - fblink
    2. Email us below (we had a simple form right under this). Tell us why you would love to win this week?s prize. Duplicate entries will be filtered out and discarded, so sending additional emails won?t increase your likelihood of winning.
    Extra Steps:
    Do you want to go above and beyond? Then here is how;
    Share the above picture on Instagram, Facebook, twitter, etc. Make sure you put #fanestgiveaway on the caption so we can see it.
    Contest Rules:

    • ?No purchase necessary.?
    • The contest is open worldwide!
    • Contest starts every Sunday and end every Saturday.
    • 1 price given away per week. Value of $100 each.
    • The price will be shipped to the winner.
    • Winner will be selected at random.
    • Winner will be selected every Sunday.

    2) Go to instagram and comment/like pictures based on #hashtags related to your business. You can do this by hand or use your favorite bot. I personally used Botstagram.

    Only had 5 accounts and targeted about 10 #hashtags for a period of one week.

    3) Outcome (with screenshots)

    Instagram followers gain: +2,183
    Twitter Follower gain: +77
    Facebook page likes: +126
    Email Subscribers: +331

    Total followers on the extra 5 accounts: +10,000


    4) My goal was to increase our followers not to make money therefore not focused on such, but for the ones interested I made $100 on sales, again wasn't my goal.


    Next step?
    Bought a new VPS
    Installed a new copy of Botstagram
    Increasing to 100 accounts.

    In theory i should be able to get this results times 20.

    Any questions just ask!

    Yes. The Price is a sticker pack. 20 stickers which i sell for $5 each. In reality stickers cost me about .05 cents to make so retail is $100 my price about $2 including shipping.
