  • Email (91 percent) and text messaging (83 percent) are still the most popular daily “social” activities.
    This level of activity places Twitter top amongst all social networks alongside Facebook (both have 76 percent of users logging in once or more each day), and ahead of Instagram (70 percent), Snapchat (67 percent) and YouTube (66 percent).
    Google+, Pinterest (58 percent each) and, surprisingly, Myspace (46 percent) round out the top ten overall

  • Quad City Times Advertiser Facebook Sweepstakes “Win Dinner for 10 at Red Lantern”
    July 1-9 collected submissions
    517 total submissions
    355 came the day the email was sent
    70% of contest entries came from the email
  • We consistently find this stat to be true across the board.
    2nd street works with 100s of major media companies and seeing this consistently
  • This model has been proven to work in markets large and small
    23 week pro football pickem contest
  • 30 sponsors!
    Sponsor photo printed weekly with latest picks and performance to-date in the contest promo/ad section
    Sponsors love to be VIPs in their community. Love the PRINT exposure they get for 23 weeks and love the notion of an online contest that drives local readers back to make picks week after week.
  • So many sponsors that the paper went from a double truck each week to a FOUR PAGE PULLOUT each week. For 23 weeks. Tied back in with the contest that was running online.
  • Why do you have the advantage?
    Your ability to integrate an online solution with a print solution allows this to become a $100k solution
    The medium of print that gives you the unlimited and TANGIBLE space that is of value to the customer and that tv, radio, even online can’t replicate.
    This is a Truly integrated contest that marries the value of online and and the power of print.
    Takes advantage of what is best about the internet (an interactive medium) and ties it right back into print by taking advantage of the best of print.
    Combination of the power of integrated campaign: email, online, being a VIP picker and in a double truck ad.
    Its an unfair advantage. You’ve got it. I hate to say it. Its an unfair advantage.
    So lets take a look at another one.
    $100k in revenue
    Secured 30 sponsors &
    advertisers
    Providing results for advertisers with FREQUENCY element and leveraging this plan for additional sales.
  • Madison.com promoted the contest in print, as well as in an online beer column, radio interviews, and on Twitter, where users were encouraged to tweet about their picks using the hashtag #beerbracket.
    Prizes were awarded randomly to 29 bracket participants, and included a mountain bike, brewery packages, and a variety of gift cards.
  • Focus on Revenue
    Ask yourself these questions
    Create a list of these people
    First – the most obvious, the low-hanging fruit
    Look at your current client list
    Do they have something coming up we could activate?
    Check out their website – what do they have going on?
    Facebook contests, are they on Facebook? If they’re posting with some level of frequency it shows that Facebook is important to them
    You don’t want to target someone who has a page but never posts – they’re not going to see a return on their investment because they’re not investing anything into their Page
    They’re not going to keep up the momentum or be in a position to do anything with all of the new fans you will deliver to them
    Go back to their Timeline – what did they do last year for X holiday
    Check out their Events page
    Who’s currently advertising their Facebook page but might not be running a contest with you?
    Remember to target your sponsors according to the theme of your contest. For example, if you are running a “Cutest Kids Competition,” secure a children’s clothing shop, toy store or a family-friendly restaurant.
  • For those of you who don’t know, this is what a Facebook contest looks like
    It’s fully integrated into your Page as an app
    It is Like-Gated
    This means they have to click the Like button before they can see the entry form (PUSH THE BUTTON)

  • We’ve seen social boost drive 25% of entries
  • It’s also giving fans what they want
    Engage new fans and re-engage existing fans, imperative to remaining visible in Newsfeed (Edgerank)
  • You’ve seen the KNRK example where the contest was run on their page and sponsored by a local brewery and tech school
    Now let’s talk about a really exciting revenue stream
    Another way you can make money from Facebook contests is by running contests for them on their page
    Like an Agency – provide digital agency services

  • Emily
    According to a recent study by Manta
    BIG potential. What is your primary goal in using social media?
    #1 is Acquiring and Engaging new customers: 36%
    Facebook contests are the best way to get new fans
    Facebook contests are the best way to get new leads
  • Here we’ve got an example from Entercom Radio where they sold a $500 sweepstakes to a local bank
    Generated $18,000 from this one contest!
    Brand new giftcard program
    Holiday promotion
    Looking for people who are holiday shopping
    Marketing objective: wanted to double their Likes
    Biz Objective: wanted to sell 500 gift cards, average price point 25-50 a card
    This was supported by a giveaway of a $500 gift card on their Facebook Page 
  • Emily
    1252 new fans
    12,880% growth in engagement (PTA, People Talking About This)
  • Emily
    Big aspect of this campaign
    Send out a newsletter called Common Cents
    Gave them 562 new emails
  • Emily
    They ran out of gift cards!
    They sold 1000 gift cards
  • Emily
    In Card Sales
    That encouraged them to look at more promotions
    Used power of new fans in first quarter promotion
    Community Rewards program, had over 78k votes
    They were floored
  • Here’s a great example
    Auto Dealer gets his own contest on July 9, - $14k package for next month
    Google AdWords, YouTube Pre-Rolls
    The contest was $4k - fun prize, enter for your chance to drive a new Ford Mustang convertible for 2 weeks’
    will have an email opt-ins, and ask some simple survey questions - what make and model do you drive, are you looking to buy a car
  • 448 entrants, 30 people said next 3 months, 13 people said next month, 12 people said 6 months, 209 said they would like to receive more information from the auto dealer, 46%. TALK ABOUT HOT, QUALIFIED LEADS
  • Emily
    By doing the consultative piece, gets advertisers to start thinking about their business and how social media impacts it
    When they talk to advertisers they make a point to say we are consulting we are not selling to you.
    They get real answers this way about budget and inside information not normally shared with ad sales team.

  • Nathan
    Holiday-themed deals ran from 12/3 – 12/25 – “Last Minute Gifts” theme
    Reps were already pitching holiday print packages
    Nathan made sure they had info for holiday/store
    If they bought a print ad, include a deal
    Or if you don’t want to spend dollars on advertisers, then deals make sense
    Revenue per deal during time of the store increased 47% vs. 2012 average ($1097 vs $748)
    Review last year’s sales from print section, look to see who is inactive now or who bought last year
    Nathan pulls newspaper from last year (two months in advance of the month)
    Looking at what advertisers were promoting at the time and see what makes a great ad
    Target – anything that would make a good gift – “Would you give this as a gift?”
    Retail is a tricky category – focus on something better tied to the store

  • WAYS TO MAKE MONEY WITH VOTER’S CHOICE
    • Upgraded Listings
    • Ballot Sponsorships
    • Print Issue or On-Air Special
    • Live Event
    • Deals Store
    Look to the following pages for a breakdown of each.
    ★ Remember - these models can also be combined to maximize your
    revenue. A single ballot could incorporate upgraded listings, category
    sponsorships, preview and winners special sections,
  • People have struggled to make money DURING the promotion and online. Really get how to make money in print but not necessarily digitally.
    This is an answer to one of those challenges.
    The upgraded listing model works when you are featuring local advertisers on the ballot. This model allows them to pay to feature their listing more prominently in an effort to attract more votes.
    LISTING UPGRADES
    • Logo
    • Description
    • Website
    • Address
    • Interactive Map
    • Social Sharing Buttons
    o Facebook
    o Twitter
    o Google +
    In a mid-size market, you could charge each sponsor a $149 flat fee
    for an upgraded listing including an image, phone number, address,
    website, and Facebook & Twitter buttons. If you have 30 merchants
    who purchase upgraded listings for a 4-week ballot, you would end up
    generating $4,470 in revenue!
  • Augment revenue from upgraded listings by selling ballot sponsorships.
    BALLOT CATEGORY SPONSORSHIP
    With the ballot category sponsorship model, sponsors pay to be
    featured on a specific category of your ballot. an example might be the “Citizens Bank Coach of
    the Week.” In a mid-size market, you could charge a category sponsor
    $249/week for the duration of the promotion. If you have 10 category
    Sponsors for a 10-week ballot, that gives you $24,900 in revenue.
    Right now a mid market alternative weekly is charging $200/week for this type of sponsorship.
  • Augment revenue from upgraded listings by selling ballot sponsorships.
    BALLOT CATEGORY SPONSORSHIP
    With the ballot category sponsorship model, sponsors pay to be featured on a specific category of your ballot. an example might be the “Citizens Bank Coach of the Week.” In a mid-size market, you could charge a category sponsor $249/week for the duration of the promotion. If you have 10 category sponsors for a 10-week ballot, that gives you $24,900 in revenue.
  • If you have a print publication, creating a special section or issue announcing the winners of your metro Voter’s Choice competition is an absolute must.
    Many members of your audience will save their special issue to refer back to throughout the year
    Many winning merchants will frame their part and display it in their place of business
  • ★ A coupon or offer in a thank you ad is a great way to drive foot traffic back to the merchant’s location.
    ★ A call to action to enter a contest is a great way to drive traffic to a Facebook Page, and the QR code makes it even easier to act on!
  • Another way to continue to capitalize on your Voter’s Choice
    competition after the voting is over is to create a live event that
    celebrates the winners and brings the Voter’s Choice experience
    to life for your audience.
  • A deals store is an excellent way to continue making money once
    your Voter’s Choice ballot has wrapped up. Your voters chose
    these advertisers for awards, so the deals they have to offer are
    guaranteed to be appealing to your audience. As always, deals
    provide yet another way to engage your audience while driving
    even more revenue.
    Deal Store
    WHEN TO RUN
    –As soon as possible after your Voter’s Choice ballot is over and your winners have been announced.
    HOW LONG TO RUN
    –10-14 Days
    WHEN TO SELL
    –You should start selling as soon as you know the winners.
    PROSPECT LIST
    –Approach all of the winners and runner-ups from your Voter’s Choice ballot.
    HOW MANY DEALS TO INCLUDE
    –Aim for at least 10-15 deals (and remember that you can include multiple deals from the same merchant in your store).
