300,000+ Collected Email Leads And Counting…
Within months of starting, our clients have collected well over 300,000 email leads using ZoSocial, mainly thanks to the organic spread of their contests on Facebook.
Let’s have a look what our customers have to say about ZoSocial:
My first contest using Zosocial closed last night. It's been pretty successful in generating leads - over 1,500 added to GetResponse.
I am at 177 leads now with $10 spent. I have 4 days left from the campaign so I'm confident I'll get to 500 leads before it's finished (not to mention my fan page growth). Awesome!
I have been testing a giveaway contest using Zosocial vs a similar contest I ran using a tab-based giveaway app. The ZoSocial contest is getting more engagement and much bigger reach through FB. Running a contest right on the timeline does make a lot more sense and the results I am seeing do bear this out.
My fanbase was 2, 202 when I started. Now after 17 hours, OVER 100% reach...crazy...
Over 75% fanbase reached after 6.5 hours...., still counting. Awesome. Can't realize what happens here.
WOW that's just amazing. That's taking engagement to whole new level. Thanks Wilco
