I put Booshaka on my page with the intent of increasing engagement. I use the free version, but made my own contest using their leaderboard. I installed it, waited a couple of days and then announced a monthly prize for the “Top Fan.” I logged in a couple of hours later and had over 100 notifications for my page whereas I usually have one or two a day. I’m in the second month or using it, but it has had two excellent effects:
1) it has certainly encouraged people to engage with the page through likes, shares and posts
2) it has helped me single out my most enthusiastic fans are and I’ll be able to, hopefully, recruit them as brand evangelists.
