People enjoy joining contests. And contests in Facebook are really fun to join. Most of these contests aim to promote a product or service. Have you ever wondered how it’s all done? In the official Facebook note about promotions which can be found here, the number 1 rule is that “Promotions on Facebook must be administered within Apps on Facebook.com, either on a Canvas Page or an app on a Page Tab.” This is where ShortStack comes in. Facebook contests are just one of the many things that ShortStack allows you to do. ShortStack is a subscription-based service which allows for custom Facebook applications. It is a great tool for people who manage Facebook Pages for their clients or owners of Facebook Pages for business. Shortstack offers some excellent features. First, it can be tried for free. The only time that you will be asked for a credit card information is when you exceed the fan allowance that comes with Shortstack’s free plan (2,000 fans). Pricing for a ShortStack service depends on the number of “Likes” your page has. The more likes, the higher the price. I must mention that the pricing is very reasonable. There are even discounts for annual subscription. All in all, ShortStack is great if you plan to maximize your social media presence and potential. The tutorial below shows how to create a Facebook contest using ShortStack.
