How to run a Tweet Draw on Like a Bird Apps ?

Why choose a Tweet Draw ?

Tweet Draw allows you to draw some winner(s) among all the participants who tweeted with your campaign hashtag and your account mention. It's the perfect campaign to make your followers react on a specific topic:

  • You can run a viral marketing campaign by picking a very popular topic,
  • Winner(s) is / are drawn among all the participations, with a more engaging contest mechanic than a classic Retweet and Follow, as participants have to send a tweet instead of retweeting a predefined tweet.
  • And still, as it's easy to enter the contest, you can benefit from an important recruitment thanks to your campaign.

Moreover, it's a perfect type of contest if you want your followers to get more engaged and start be used to interact with your brand..

How does it work ?

Well, it could not be simpler:

You log in your  Like a Bird Apps dashboard and click on the "Create this contest" button :

You now only have to configure your campaign from the setup form:

  • Campaign hashtag,
  • Announcement tweet,
  • Starting date and hour,
  • Reminder tweets

Participation rules:

  • Participants can participate as many times as they want,
  • They're only counted once for the final draw,
  • It's up to you to decide whether you want to set the follow mandatory or not.


And then... let's go !

Each participant has to tweet with your account mention and the campaign hashtag

To ensure the success of your campaing, you can directly set up "reminder tweets" from the platform.


Cool tip from the Like a Bird Apps team: if you want to be sure to reach the maximum audience, don't hesitate to send at least two reminder tweets per day during the first and last days of the campaign, and to plan at least one reminder tweet per day during the rest of the campaign.

How does Like a Bird Apps help me?

Our tool helps you ensure that the participants become followers if they aren't already. We send a customizable tweet to your absent minded participants to  remind them to become followers, if they forget to, and only if you enabled this feature :


Like a Bird Apps checks every participation and every participant to figure whether they fit with the participation rules, and gives you access to the detailed statistics of your campaign as well:
