Are you a finalist in the Totally Awesome Awards? Or perhaps a write-in candidate who aims to overthrow the nominees in your category? Here are some tips for generating votes so you have the very best possible chance of winning. Even if you don’t win, these social media tactics are a great way to keep in touch with customers and generate awareness for your business.

1. Share the good news with your friends and fans on Facebook and Twitter. Don’t forget to send reminders!

  • For Facebook,  1 to 2 posts per week is optimum
  • For Twitter, tweet once a day

Hint: In our experience, Facebook shout outs are much more effective than Twitter.
