Marketing/Facebook contest to advertise

2 Replies

Hey BP, Has anyone used a marketing campaign to attract tenants for a property? I have a SFH that I was living in and am now listing to rent. It is nicer than typical rent range in my town so therefore smaller pool of people to rent it. Its been slow to rent and I want to have someone committed to it within 2 weeks. I was thinking of doing a Facebook contest where I tell people to like/comment for a chance to win something (like a yeti tumbler or something else valued at $50 or less). Has anyone tried this and was it successful? Thanks!

I haven't tried it and can't comment on the effectiveness of such a strategy. Though, I've done plenty of consulting work for clients in the online marketing/tech space. Contests can be pretty tough in my experience, even with hundreds of dollars on the line. And I have no idea if this sort of thing would qualify, but there are some pretty stringent state laws around holding competitions giving away anything of monetary value. Probably wouldn't be an issue, but worth looking into if you pursue that route.

hey @John Petersen  ,I wrote a mini article in a post showing exactly step-by-step how to set up a lead generation funnel for sellers through Facebook ads check it out here if your interested
