Other incentives besides referring

What other incentives would you all want, so that users can get points?

Just got someone asking to add "Facebook likes" as well (so give them a point if they "like" a page). I like the idea.

What do you all think? Agree / disagree?

I like the idea of rewarding more than "referrals" but isnt' Incentivizing Facebook Likes against FB rules?


Perhaps "likes" are, but there are other incentives that we could consider.

What do you all think? Should we have more incentives (e.g. "follow on Instagram" etc)? And if so, which ones?

I'm torn on this on.. On one side I'd say it's best to focus on actual reach - but on the other hand I can understand the request as well.

Looking forward to read more feedback :) 

I think using likes to earn points (or get more entries) would be a good feature.

As I understand it, the challenge is with 'Sharing' not likes. You can't incentivise people to share a post but I believe it's okay to require them to like it. 

Here's what I found...

"We’ve removed the requirement that promotions on Facebook only be administered through apps

Now, promotions may be administered on Page Timelines and in apps on Facebook. For example, businesses can now:

  • Collect entries by having users post on the Page or comment/like a Page post
  • Collect entries by having users message the Page
  • Utilize likes as a voting mechanism

As before, however, businesses cannot administer promotions on personal Timelines."



I think both sources say the same thing:o)

Hope this helps!

I'm integrating with another system to do this.

A good way to get likes wthe the current system is to just ask nicely for one in the first email

I would LOVE more facebook integration and I feel it would add to the viral aspect as everyone is SO used to liking and sharing content on social media so if we can leverage this I think its a homerun!

More options definitely don't hurt but what I would REALLY like is a way to interact with the platform through an API to be able to reward points for whatever I want to give points for.
Is this feature live yet?


This is about gaining leads, but if we can qualify leads at the same time that's super useful.

Can do this by awarding points the more info they fill in. Every non-mandatory custom field can have a points award, so people are incentivised to give us more info :)

The lead page would need one extra function to be killer, adding DropDown fields. KILLER.

A friend of mine went to a Facebook marketing two day course recently and commented that Fb have changed the background programming 'recently'.

What works now apparently is not like and share but like and comment.

Is this true? If so, what's the implications / opportunities?

I only joined UpViral two weeks ago and I'm only just getting my first campaign designed ATM.
