Get Your Fans Engaged with a Facebook Contest

Facebook contests are a great way to get your Region's Facebook fans engaged with your page and willing to spread the word to their friends. However, it is against Facebook's Terms of Use to use any standard Facebook functions to host a contest.

For example, you can no longer ask your fans to "LIKE their favorite photo and the photo with the most likes will win" or "Leave a comment below to be entered to win."

Luckily, there are free Facebook apps out there that allow you to hold a fun, professional-looking contest for your fans, without having to hire an outside designer or web developer. One that I use for the AYSO National Office page is Napkin Labs.

This app allows you to hold contests, ask your fans to join in on a brainstorming session, get feedback from your Region's parents and volunteers, and much more. All you have to do is upload the specifics of what you want, add an image of your choice and you're done!

Check out Napkin Labs for more info.
