How Do I Promote an Entry? What Do the Share Tools Do?

*Contests only. 

Once an entry is accepted to a contest, you should start promoting it immediately!

You'll notice that every entry has a URL that you can share for direct access
Example direct link: http://www.contest.com/entry/123456

Each entry is also equipped with Share Tools that automatically include a direct link. Take advantage of them!

 

 

Here are some more tips to get started:

Tip 1: Email it. Your address book should be the first place you go to find your closest friends and family. Shoot them an email using the share tool on your entry page.

Tip 2: Facebook it. Using the share tool on your entry page, you can post messages with a direct link to your entry on your Wall & your friends' News Feeds. You can even go further and create a group on Facebook about your contest entry and invite your friends. Keep the group open to everyone so your friends can invite more friends to join.

Tip 3: Tweet it. Mix in tweets with links to your entry to remind those who are following you on Twitter to vote for you. You can add a link to your entry by clicking share tool on your entry page.

Tip 4: Google + it. Using the share tool on your entry page, you can post messages with a direct link to your entry on your Google + account. You can even + 1 it!

Tip 4: Blog it. Publish a post on your Blog, Posterous, Tumblr, Instagram, etc. about your contest entry with your entry's direct link to make sure all your readers vote to help you rack up the votes.

Tip 5: Get Creative. We encourage you to be creative with how you promote your entry. Just be sure you're familiar with the contest's rules and whether it has daily, hourly, or any other voting restrictions.
