    Question Facebook contest

    Hi, I'm currently in charge of a Facebook contest to gain more followers and I'm wondering how I could effectively communicate with business owners to promote it.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    What sort of business, and what sort of contest?

    Just in general I would raise awareness that it is happening, possibly purchase some advertisements on the side to promote it, link it to other social media sites or web sites, if it is more local put fliers in applicable spots, or build some word of mouth following.

    TO be more detailed I would need details in the contest itself.

    This is a good question. I've been thinking about running a contest and posting about it on our Facebook page. Geenoak, I went to read the rules for contests on Facebook, but not sure I still understand them. If I'm running a contest that isn't directly through our FB page, if I'm just using FB to post about the contest, do those same rules apply? I'm a little confused on the details. Does anyone know/understand them, or have a good resource that talks more in depth about them?
