Giveaway #3 was a joint drinking games venture, giving away 10 games from 5 drinking game businesses. The image was all the games and ‘Game Bundle Giveaway ‘ in the middle of the picture.

  • As the giveaway was joint between the other drinking games, I’d expect the new followers to have come from those accounts and be interested in drinking games.
  • Giveaways do not convert into sales
  • Perception of followers will be there is no point to purchase if there’s an expectation of getting it for free
  • Created 1 winner and 89 losers, could cause frustration, how do we get everyone to be a winner
  • I want to move to competitions whereby if the collective audience gets the answer correct then the whole community wins discount off the game. Can I utilise this to create a discount code in Etsy to give everyone 25% off?
  • The goal is to have meaningful connections rather than superficial associations.
