The Geeky Girls were able to significantly increase their traffic, page likes and engagement by giving away a t-shirt.

Total cost = Less than $10.00

The Geeky Girls used the Booshaka App (thanks Mari) to identify their top fans.  It’s a great app that I highly recommend checking out.  Please read Facebook’s Promotional Guidelines before launching your own contest http://www.facebook.com/promotions_guidelines.php
