How-to: Expand Your Audience Reach with an Instagram Contest

I am a fan of practical, how-to articles, especially those that present a process with a payoff, and that take time to discuss the pros and cons of various approaches. So, when I read Krista Bunskoek’s article on Social Media Examiner’s blog about running successful Instagram contests to expand your audience reach, I was immediately intrigued.

Bunskoek, a content marketer at Wishpond, outlines the pros and cons of three Instagram contest types, and then dives right into the specifics of running the contest type you choose and provides a guide through the process of a successful engagement campaign.

It’s an excellent follow-up to my Why Instagram May Be Instagreat for Your Business article, which outlines the key benefits of using Instagram to engage your audience.

Bunskoek’s article below takes audience engagement one step further by detailing how to use Instagram to expand your audience reach.
