Twitter has been growing in popularity lately and for good reason. It’s quick, fast and easy to keep engaged with people. That being said it also means the life span of your posts are very short but with some tips you can get your Twitter giveaway to go viral.

The first thing you need to do is to craft a quality twitter post that is sure to grab attention. Here are the things that should be in your giveaway tweet.

  • A image/short video that shows the prize, how to enter and when the winner will be picked
  • 3-5 hashtags such as giveaway, contest, sweepstakes and one or two that relate to the product that are popular
  • One or two lines that tells a little about your company and the giveaway

Also if your giveaway is internal to twitter only then you will want to include terms and conditions within the tweet itself.

Most importantly figure out how you are going to pick your winner. It should be totally random and there are plenty of random scripts to draw winners.

You might also want to consider offering some type of runner up prize or a discount to all entries who helped make your giveaway a success.

Just because you created the tweet does not mean it will go viral. You should put some promotion effort into it.
