There are some key factors to address when you are vetting a giveaway host – asking the right questions to determine if they are worthy of your trust, having a clear understanding of expectations and understanding the mechanics of the company you have selected. Giveaway loops are an emerging space and there are a ton of new companies flooding the market with little to no experience. Click here to access our article on Giveaway loops gone bad.
We want to arm you with the knowledge, tips and tricks to help you grow your business and not get caught out by unscrupulous operators along the way.
Tip 1: Ask questions
Paying attention to how the company answers your queries can give insight into how trustworthy they are and how they might react if your giveaway does not go as planned. Below is a standard list of questions you can ask to help assess the professionalism of the giveaway company you are thinking about working with. If their answers don’t satisfy you or leave you with more questions, look elsewhere.
- What happens if I don’t hit the follower growth you mentioned?
- Is there is a guarantee in place, if so what is it?
- How many people typically don’t hit the target follow growth?
- How many giveaways have you been involved in?
- How many clients have you had?
Tip 2: Understand The Expectations
We’ve all had dealings with slimy salespeople who will gloss over the details and process to have you simply focus on the incredible result you may potentially receive. Pay attention to the lack of detail. If the company you are speaking to stumbles when answering your question(s), and offers little to no clear insight, this should serve as a warning sign for you. If they say, “We do this all the time and we’ve never had a problem,” just run. Force the salesperson to stop the smooth talk and give you the real facts or better yet work with a company where the salespeople are real from the outset.
Tip 3: Clarify If They Are The Supplier Or The Reseller
Understanding the mechanics of the company you are working with is essential to have a clear expectation of what you will be receiving. Many companies will pretend to be the supplier (the person/company who creates a partnership with a celebrity), in an effort to appear more credible. Uncovering this should be a priority, as you don’t want to get halfway through the process and realize you are dealing with an amateur, not an expert. At Social Clout Club we are a premium reseller, meaning we stick to what we are good at; which is finding the very best hosts to give our clients the very best deals.
We only partner with hosts that we have vetted, trust completely and aren’t afraid to stand behind. The volume of clients our business works with allows us to achieve the very best prices in the market, ensuring our clients pay competitive rates for our service.
