Fun Online Promotion Ideas


Is your online marketing strategy getting old and boring? We all fall victim to sticking to what we know, following a daily routine, or thinking inside the box. The trick is to find ways to spice up online marketing efforts to see better results. Here are 5 crazy online promotion ideas that may help you revive your campaigns.

#1 – Host a Giveaway

The second anyone says the word “free,” it sparks attention. Try promoting your products by offering a fun, free giveaway on any of your social media sites.

#2 – Have a Contest

Provide a way for your followers to become winners. It’s a great way to expand your reach and hone in on the creativity of your best customers. Dream up a fun contest that requires participants to like and share your social media sites when they enter their contest submission. Then, announce the winner publicly.

#3 – YouTube

YouTube videos are fairly inexpensive to make and spread like wildfire. Make a cool YouTube video and upload it to your social media sites, or challenge your followers to make their own YouTube video about your company (this is a great contest idea).

#4 – Participate Online

Sometimes we get so used to pumping out our own content that we forget how important it is to react to others’ content. A great way to engage followers is to follow others, respond to their updates, offer insightful comments, and share their interesting content.

#5 – Outsource

Sometimes all you need is a fresh view on your online marketing strategy. Try outsourcing one of your advertising projects to a creative company like OrangeSoda.
