Objective:

If you're in need of more content for your platform, consider running a suggestion contest and sourcing post content from your users. This is a double win because not only will you have more content, but users are more likely to share content that they have suggested.

How it Works:

  1. Create a new Leaderboard and only assign point values for content suggestions.

  2. Promote the contest with your users using the templates below before and during the contest to ensure optimal participation.

  3. At the end of the 30 days, go the the Leaderboard tab and find who has provided the most suggestions - they will be #1 on the list.

  4. That's the winner! Give that person (or top 3 suggesters, budget permitting) a prize.
