Instagram giveaway strategy to get leads and sales. A successful Instagram marketing strategy and Instagram giveaway in 2020, after COVID-19, requires more than just posting a contest on Instagram. To boost your followers and your sales from Instagram marketing we are recommending to combine 2 giveaways instead of just one.

Before the strategy, here’s what you need to know about an Instagram giveaway.

From the legal perspective, a giveaway is ruled by the contest & sweepstakes laws.

If you’re in Texas, Texas law says if you run a sweepstakes in Texas with prizes valued over $50,000 it is prohibited to automatically enter individuals into the promotion when they make a purchase.

Be sure to review other restrictions that can legally affect your business.
