Social Contests – Drive Connections and Interactions

Quick, what does a local mailer cost you? What does a newspaper ad cost for one day of exposure? What does a magazine ad cost?

Now what do a pair of tickets to a game cost?

Which is more?

Check out this promotion I am running using a pair of tickets and $20 of promoted posts on facebook:



The details of the contest are as follows:
