It is harder for Facebook than Instagram. Basically, you will have to tell people about it. You can post on Reddit about your drawing.

I did something for a client exactly like what you are doing. It reached over 1000 people on Instagram in the first three days. It is achievable if you do it right, However, for Facebook, it might not reach as many people unless you promote it. Then the sky is the limit.

thank you for your advice i really appreciate it.

how would you suggest i tackled this.

i have only recently setup a instagram account for my online shop and i have got 0 followers.

i basically want people to sign up to my site and promote/advertise my online shop for the chance to win a £100 discount.

It is easy. Just start a dialogue on Instagram. The more you interact the greater the response you are going to see. By the way what is your url to your store?

Hey Dean,

Aria here, one of the Social Care gurus at Shopify. ?

When advertising a giveaway for your store, I would suggest using Facebook groups which are relevant to your niche and like others said Instagram! It can help you build your following on Instagram too, which is important for future marketing. Check out these blog posts: 

There's an app you can use to run your giveaway for you: Gleam Competitions. It can be used to verify actions taken by your users and increase engagement. There's also the ViralSweep app.

I wish you the best of luck with your business launch!

hello Aria, 

Thanks for the reply.

how would you suggest i setup this sort of promotion from the admin side of things.

i know how to create a discount voucher in the admin of shopify but how would you suggest i put the promotion out across social media i.e- '£100 discount voucher for 1 lucky winner picked at random'  all what entrants must do in order to qualify is advertise/promote my store and signup.

Hey, Dean.

Aria here! 

There are lots of ways of advertising your giveaway. On Facebook, I'd recommend you join some groups associated with your niche, if possible. Make sure there are a high number of group members before you join. Read the group rules first to make sure it's ok but you can hopefully advertise your giveaway on each group. I'd start a group specific to your store too and drive everyone to that group to enter the giveaway. You can provide details on your group of how to get additional entries by following you on Instagram, tweeting, tagging friends, following your Facebook page. 

On Instagram, you can use #giveaway and other related hashtags to draw people to your contest. This article has more ideas on the best hashtags to use. You can use the same hashtags on Twitter and ask people to retweet to enter. 

You can also reach out to micro-influencers on Instagram to ask them to share your giveaway in exchange for free product, membership in your affiliate programme, etc. This blog post has more information on Influencer Marketing. 

I hope this gives you something to go on. Let me know if you have more questions.
