Why Commit to Your Fans
Being a good virtual citizen requires basic housekeeping like thanking people for engaging with you and promoting excellent content.

#1: Host a Video Contest
For the last seven years, Doritos has run its “Crash the Super Bowl” contest asking customers to create commercials for its crunchy treats. The incentive that really caught attention? The winner gets his or her commercial aired during the Super Bowl.
The response is huge. Hundreds of commercials are submitted. The company narrows it down to a pool of five, and then asks everyone to vote for their favorite.
The result is a viral campaign driven by finalists sharing their entry with friends and encouraging them to vote, as well as customers and fans who want to see the best videos (which are usually the funniest).
In 2013, Doritos brought the video contest to Facebook (they had previously used a microsite) and went beyond the success of all previous years.
