Tour Giveaway


Build Your Email List

Get Social Shares &Followers


The Tour Giveaway Campaign is a great way to build your email list, get social shares and grow your followers on social media. People enter to win a free tour from your tour company by entering their email and contact info in an entry form on the Giveaway Page. They can also earn more entries in the giveaway by sharing, following you and referring friends. This allow your giveaway to grow exponentially, as each entrant is incentivized to refer their friends to bring more entrants for you.

By offering one of your tours as your giveaway prize, you’ll attract targeted leads who are interested in taking your tour. The Giveaway Page acts as a pre-qualifying sales page: People learn about your tour, and then say “Yes, I want this!” by entering the giveaway. You’ll then be able to follow-up with them after the giveaway to turn them into customers.


The Tour Giveaway Campaign has 3 steps:

Step 1: Facebook Ad

Facebook Ads allow you to target people who are interested in your tour in your local area to drive them to your Giveaway Page.

Below is a pre-built Facebook Ad and Target Audience that we use for one of our rafting tour clients. While it’s built specifically for a rafting tour, I’ll show you how to apply the best practices to any kind of tour:

  • 1. Ad

    facebook ad


    Start with a short, cheeky sentence to pull people in. Then show a call-to-action to tell them to Enter now for the chance to WIN. Then show the aspects of the grand prize in a bullet list, with eye-catching emojis, so it’s easy for them to read. And finish by tell them that the contest ends soon to create a sense of urgency.


    Use an exciting, eye-catching image with a red border. In our experience, this kind of image with the red border is what will stop people when they’re scrolling in the Facebook Newsfeed and read your Ad. And show a text headline in the image. This will get people reading your Ad right away.


    This headline format, WIN [PRIZE]!, does a great job of immediately drawing people in and exciting them. Having WIN in all-caps draws people’s attention to it. They’ll then see what the prize is that they can win, which gets them excited and keeps them reading all the way to the end – where the Call-to-Action is for them to click.

    Newsfeed Link Description

    Provide a sentence or two with some extra details on the prize.


    This is the button people click on the Ad to be taken to your Campaign.

    Facebook only gives you a few options for this. For Giveaway Campaigns like this one, Learn More performs best as none of the other options are applicable for it.

  • 2. Target audience

    Your Target Audience will depend on the type of tour you’re giving and where your customers usually come from to take your tour. Here’s the targeting we recommend:

    Interests/Behaviour Targeting

    Facebook’s Interest and Behavior targeting allow you to show your Ad to people who are interested in specific things and activities. Their system has become very sophisticated and is now able to target the right people incredibly accurately.

    Here’s what we recommend:

    • For any outdoor tour (hiking, rafting, boat tours, etc.), target people with the Outdoor Activities Behaviour.
    • Target people who are interested in the type of activity that your tour is: For example, if you offer a kayaking tour then target people interested in kayaking.
    • If Facebook tells you your audience is too small when you just target people interested in your tour activity, then also target people who are interested in similar activities. For example, if you’re targeting people interested in kayaking then you can also target people interested in hiking, rafting, and mountain biking.

    Age, Gender, Language and Location Targeting

    Age, Gender, Location and Language targeting should reflect who your most common customers are. If you have an adventure tour that generally attracts people in their 20’s and 30’s, then you should target people in that age group. If you’re unsure which Location to target, we recommend targeting people within a 4-hour drive of your own location: This is a close enough distance for most people to be content with driving to you.

    Why are Facebook Ads effective for this Campaign?

    The reason they’re effective is because they’re shown to people who are interested in your type of tour. Facebook is great at knowing people’s interests based on their behavior, which is what makes their Ad targeting so effective.

    Google Adwords, on the other hand, don’t work well for giveaways. This is generally because people don’t search on Google for giveaways. And the ones who do search for giveaways are just people who are interested in winning something free, not specifically in your tour.

Step 2: Giveaway Page

The Giveaway Page is where people enter. It has two jobs:

  • 1. Make it easy for people to enter:

    The entry form is right at the top of the page so people can immediately see it. And the title and subtitle directly explains what a person should do on the page: Enter to Win a Rafting Adventure Tour Package.

  • 2. Build interest in your Tour:

    The page includes several sections to explain the amenities and experience of your tour. This builds people’s interest in your tour and makes it easy to follow-up to turn them into a customers.

3. Tour Highlights

Show the highlights of your tours and your company in a way people can quickly read and digest.

4. Aspects of your Tour Prize Package

Show a bullet list of the aspects of your tour package. This makes it quick and easy for people to read it and find the aspects of your tour that they’re most interested in.

5. Customer Testimonial

Show your location and phone number. This helps people see that you’re located near them, they can reach you by phone, and you’re a real, trustworthy business.

6. About your Tour

Describe the experience of your tour. This helps people envision it in their mind and pre-qualifies them to buy later on.

Step 3: Thank You Page

After a person enters on the Giveaway Page, they’re taken to the Thank You Page. Here you can display a message to thank people for entering, tell them when grand prize will be drawn and provide methods to get more entries in the giveaway.
