Let’s have a look a a few ideas you should use for your next Twitter contest.

1. Make It About Storytelling

Let your followers tell your brand’s story, or even reinvent theirs. Reward them with exclusive material or (why not?) with prizes.

Have a look at what Heineken did a while ago. Not only did it engage its fans into a world of collaborative storytelling, it also took advantage of the powerful video capabilities on Twitter to create a unique, rewarding 15-second blockbuster video, entirely created by and based on tweets. Simple in conception, grandiose in execution.

2. Make It Conversational

You don’t have to publish pushy updates to make people participate in your contest. Most brands already use Twitter to help their followers with their questions and generate conversations. Why not taking advantage of this fact?

Tweet chats help you identify influencers, future brand ambassadors and loyal followers. When asking a questions, reward the most engaging or fun answer or even the most random one. Your followers will appreciate it.
