With Facebook algorithm changes popping up at the start of 2018, every business owner is worried, no PANICKING, about engagement. We were all thinking ‘is this the end of Facebook marketing? How will I even reach people now?’, with businesses changing their tactics in all directions.

Today I’m talking with Crystal Hammond, who faced these fears with a “No, ain’t happening, hold my puppy”. She continued to increase engagement and sales on Facebook through use of contesting, which changed her business for the better. We talk about how her business started, then grew, as well as the surprises she faced when starting to run contests through her page.

In this Episode, we will share with you

  • Planning your contest
  • Choosing your targeting
  • How to announce a contest
  • Keeping up the momentum
  • The right contest for you

About Our Guest

Crystal is the proud owner and founder of Sitter for your Critter. She started the company way back in 2007 with just a love of animals and an idea that people in her community might need a different option for their critters when they were out of town. Eight years, 900 clients, and 15 employees later, her passion for animals has led her to a life of service for the critters in her community.

She founded a nonprofit called Helping People, Helping Pets in 2012 with the mission to provide pet food and veterinary assistance to those that were experiencing financial difficulty and were at risk of losing their pets.  These days, the nonprofit and managing the business keeps her pretty busy but she refuses to completely stop taking care of her critters altogether. Where would the fun be in that?
