Food porn photo competition on instagram

on-instagram

Have you tried to run a food photo competition in social media like instagram?

We’ve all seen people taking photographs of meals and dishes in restaurants and it is a great opportunity for you to make use of this. One of the things we do is we use MyGuestlist, it is an electronic platform and within that you can run competitions. Including running Instagram competitions.

People take photographs of food so you can have a competition with the hash tag of your restaurant on that competition platform. At the end of the week, you can see all the photos that are associated with the hash tag; pick a winner and go out on social media saying "This is the winning entry, everybody else is invited to try again next week…" etc.

That is an example on how you can run an Instagram competition. Basically, what you are doing is getting people to talk about your restaurant… it's a great way to market to new people, to get them to see what it's like to dine in your restaurant; so start running a #foodporn competition on Instagram.

Take Aways:

  • My Guestlist has a competition platform for Instagram competitions.
  • Set up a competition for a photo of the week, forthnight or month with your hashtag.
  • When people share their photos via Instagram with your hashtag they promote your restaurant.
  • Pick a winner and circulate their photo via your social media platform.
