Shweiki Media Printing Company teams up with Matt Coen of Second Street Promotions Lab to present publishers with strategies for packaging and pricing Facebook contests for advertisers.

Generate Revenue While Helping Small and Mid-Sized Businesses Meet Their Marketing Goals

Advertisers want to grow their social following, increase their email databases and identify hot new leads, and print publications are exceptionally well positioned to help them meet their business and marketing objectives (while simultaneously producing a significant revenue stream for the print publication itself).

One big way media companies are leveraging this client need is by running a Facebook contest for the advertiser, on their page, like an agency.

Assembling a Facebook Advertiser Contest Package

Some revenue should come from the core product, but it’s also important to take full advantage of digital assets, like those listed here:

  • Email
  • Online run-of-site ads
  • Homepage flippers or rotating billboards
  • Dropdown and peel-away ads
  • Expanding pencils
  • Homepage takeover
  • Video pre-roll ads
  • Posts to social media channels like Facebook and Twitter

Another way for one to promote these contests is by getting the publication's own talent involved by having them promote the contest through mentions in articles.

Pricing a Facebook Advertiser Contest Package

Once all of the elements included in the sponsorship package have been identified, it’s time to put a price on it. The best way to figure out what to charge for the package as a whole is to price each element individually and add it all up to determine the overall value.
