A Comics Contest is an amazing way to engage fans of your content – TV shows, cartoons, comics, toys and more. Click & Tweet!
Note: This is a contest idea by ComicReply – available to be customized for your brand!
Are you producing cartoons, comics, or selling branded merchandise? Then consider running a comics contest. This is probably one of the most effective ways to engage your audience that doesn’t get boring for a long time!
In a comics contest you can invite fans to remix your branded content assets along with related props, talking bubbles, and sound effects, to create meta-comics as contest entries. Your fans will appreciate the ability to play with your popular characters to create their own interesting comics.
Once a participant created their comics contest entry, they will most likely share it – because they will be proud of their unique creation – and also to gain votes to win prizes (like a DVD, T-Shirt, or other swag).
Every time they share their meta-comics, they are promoting your show and creating back-links to your website which helps with search engine optimization (SEO). The contest can run on the Web, as a Mobile App, and as a Facebook App on your page.
As fans create more and more entries, the contest will have a lot of interesting user-generated content (UGC) to view and vote on. Every contest will have different UGC based on the entries submitted – that way the contests will not be boring because of the new, crowdsourced, branded-personalized content.
The ComicReply platform is designed especially for running these types of advanced social media contests and includes all of the tools you will need to leverage the power of Comics Contests (including moderation, contest rules, locking it per location/region, managing multiple languages and more).
