Mashable's Guide to Social Media Giveaways, Gonzalo E Mon


4 Things to Know When Planning a Social Media Contest


Gonzalo E. Mon is a partner in the Advertising Law practice at Kelley Drye & Warren LLP. Read more on Kelley Drye’s advertising blog, Ad Law Access, or keep up with the group on Facebook or Twitter.

Social media has revolutionized the way companies run sweepstakes, contests and promotions. Specifically, social tools have made it easy to accomplish things that weren’t possible a few years ago. Maybe too easy.

Some companies forget that social media promotions are subject to various laws, special requirements and unique risks. Let’s review four of the most important considerations before your company takes on a social media promotion.

1. Know Your Terminology


People often use the words “sweepstakes” and “contest” interchangeably, but the words refer to two different things. In general, a sweepstakes refers to a promotion in which prizes are awarded based on chance, whereas a contest awards prizes based on skill. However, don’t assume that a promotion is skill-based just because it doesn’t include a random drawing. Different regions and states have different definitions of what constitutes a skill, so it’s not always easy to determine which side yours falls on.
Why does it matter? Sweepstakes and contests are subject to different sets of laws. The first step toward ensuring that you comply with the laws is determining exactly which ones apply.

2. Know the Laws


                            
Most importantly, you can’t require people to make a purchase or payment in order to enter a sweepstakes. In most cases, you can create a method of entry that involves paying money, as long as you also provide a free method of entry option. Ensure that both methods are treated equally, and that you clearly disclose the free option. Be careful — if you get this wrong, you could be in violation of criminal law.

You have more flexibility to require a purchase in a skills contest, but it’s not easy. Remember that states define skill differently, so a promotion that qualifies as skill-based in one state may not qualify as skill-based in another. Moreover, some states prohibit purchase requirements altogether, even if winners were selected based on skill. If you intend to have a purchase requirement, you will have to exclude these states.

Most states require companies to make certain disclosures about their promotions. It’s tempting to simply copy what another company has done recently, but it’s dangerous to assume that another brand got it right, or that its disclosures apply to your plans. In addition to the disclosure requirements, keep in mind that some states may require companies to register, and even to post a bond, before they can launch certain promotions.

There’s a lot to consider before you even begin to research other laws that involve promotions, privacy, intellectual property, tax, etc. If you’re not an expert in this area, work with someone who is.

3. Know the Platform Rules


Some social media companies restrict the types of promotions you perform on their platforms. For example, the Facebook Promotions Guidelines state that a user can’t award someone a contest entry simply for liking a page. Instead, users and brands must run promotions via apps on a Canvas Page or Page Tab. Facebook also requires companies to make various disclosures, and prohibits brands from notifying winners through Facebook. Check the guidelines for the complete requirements.

Google+ has taken a different approach to promotions. The Google+ Pages Contest and Promotion Policies state, “You may not run contests, sweepstakes, offers, coupons or other such promotions…directly on your Google+ Page.” In other words, you can run a promotion on another site and include a link to it on your Google+ Page, but that’s about it.

Twitter has guidelines too, but most are designed to prevent spamming. For example, Twitter asks that companies discourage people from creating multiple accounts, and from posting the same tweet repeatedly. For example, a brand that awarded a user who tweeted the same message the most times would likely be in violation.

Violating platform guidelines can get you kicked off the platform, so make sure you know these rules.

4. Know the Risks


                           
Most of the social media promotions recently gone wrong have not failed due to broken laws or platform rules. Rather, companies failed to account for risks inherent to the social media space. Social media is interactive, but remember that the more control you turn over to consumers, the less you’ll have.

Public voting produces some of the biggest problems. If you allow the public to determine a winner, you’ll almost certainly have to watch for cheating. In some cases, cheating can be so extensive that it will derail your promotion. Indeed, some companies have spent countless hours trying to plug holes, respond to complaints and regain control of their promotions. It’s fine to allow consumers some input, but don’t give them complete control.

Cheating isn’t the worst that can happen — lawsuits pose a big threat. For example, Quiznos ran a contest that asked people to create videos showing why their subs were better than Subway’s. Then Subway sued Quiznos over some of the entries. Be careful what you ask customers to submit; if you encourage them to provide problematic content, you may not be able to distance yourself from that content later on.

Before you launch a promotion, spend some time thinking about possible setbacks, and take steps to plug potential holes before consumers exploit them. A little work up front can save you a lot of time, aggravation and legal fees later.

LUCKY MAGAZINE: Kate Bosworth Throws An Arm Party of Jewelmint


Kate Bosworth Made Us an Arm Party

 
Cher Coulter & Kate Bosworth
When we caught up with Kate Bosworth to chat about her new collection of friendship bracelets, the actress and jewelry designer told us she's been arm-partying since she was teeny tiny.
"I grew up on the East Coast, spending the summers in Nantucket," Kate said. A natural accessory? Hoards of friendship bracelets–those "white ropy ones that were really chunky."

Today, as co-founder of JewelMint.com, Kate's friendship bracelets are both more polished and more philanthropic. The purchase of one of these slim, colorful bracelets results in a $1 donation to I Am That Girl, a foundation that aims to empower young women.  Plus, with three for $29.99 and new colors available every month, you won't have to pick just one best friend–another feel-good bonus we can get behind.

What will Kate wear the bracelets with? "Anything Vanessa Bruno!" (She's the star of the designer's latest campaign.) "Especially the trench coats." Check out Kate's friendship bracelets in purple, green, gold and pink below. And shop her arm party below...

Kate Bosworth features Tom Ford in InStyle Magazine November 2011 Issue

Kate Dons Tom Ford for InStyle

Thank you to JewelMint Style Diary for featuring these fantastic photos of Kate Bosworth in InStyle Magazine. Kate is a true style icon!

Kate shines in a recent Tom Ford spread in InStyle Magazine’s November issue. We couldn’t agree more with Tom Ford, who said of Kate, “True great beauties project more than just physical allure. Kate is the ultimate sexy blonde. Audiences want to know her.” Read more to see what flattering words the actress had to say back about Tom Ford’s designs.


“You have to be confident to wear this cut– and really own what you’re putting on.”

“What an exquisite green. I love how the dress fits like a glove. It’s a modern riff on an old-fashioned gown.”

“Purple is such an eye-catching shade, and the cut has a sort of military feel. It’s got softness and structure.”

“My favorite! I could imagine Grace Kelly wearing this to a chic resort. The black bra gives it sexiness.”

“You put on Tom Ford clothes and you feel strong– and you feel sexy. He has a pulse on the strength of a woman.”

We seem to recall Kate decked out in Tom Ford in another spread for Black Book Magazine. Do you prefer the masculine side of Tom Ford, as seen in Black Book Magazine, or the feminine side, seen here in InStyle Magazine?

Acreen Sire Eearrings

Madame Mystery Earrings
If you're looking for a standout pair of multi-stone statement earrings, you must check out the topaz, tanzanite, and Indian sapphire-colored crystal Madame Mystery Earrings. They'll elevate whatever you wear, whether that's a crisp white blouse or a delicate black lace dress.

Santa Fe Sunset Earrings
Embrace the ongoing Southwestern trend with these festively geometric earrings! Pair them with a shrunken denim jacket and a Navajo-print dress for a Proenza Schouler-inspired look or a mustard blouse and a camel midi skirt for an earthy-yet-stylish ensemble.

Mod Glam Earrings
If you loved the swinging sixties looks at Prada, you simply must check out the Mod Glam Earrings, as they are the epitome of go-go glam, thanks to a combination of amber acrylic and oversized crystals. Wear them with a printed shift dress and mary janes for a runway-ready look or show them off with a topknot and a strapless frock. Though they're not available until mid month, we think they're definitely worth the wait!

Vanguard Necklace
Inject your staples with a little utilitarian chic with this chunky, box chain necklace inspired by master designer Martin Margiela. It will add some edge to your most feminine ensembles and would look very model-off-duty cool paired with a thin white t-shirt and a black leather skirt.

Mesh Marvel Bracelet

Metropolitan Fashion Week Press Conference Coming Nov. 10th, 2011

Metropolitan Fashion Week
The Fashion Show for National and International Designers Only



If you are looking for never-seen-before original clothing design, look no farther than the Metropolitan Fashion Week coming to Bellevue –Seattle this spring. The event will explore the past, present and future of clothing design featuring themes  from the ‘40s and 50’s to ultra futuristic designs shaped by technology.

Showcasing the best of the region is a top priority of producer Eduardo Khawam. “We are presenting the best in regional fashion with 50% of the designers selected from Washington state”, says Khawam, a veteran fashion producer of more than 50 shows throughout the US. “We will have exclusive show rights - which means these designs have never been seen in the region or even statewide.”

This is a show for designers only – no boutiques or department stores will be featured although sponsorship participation is available. “We wanted to make this an opportunity for local designers to present their collections to regional and international buyers, shoppers, fashionistas and the media”, Khawam explains.

A sneak preview press conference for Metropolitan Fashion Week, will be held on Thursday November 10th at 6:00pm at 415 Westlake just prior to the Bellevue-Seattle Men's Collection Fashion Show themed event entitled "Soldier of Love". This show, also produced by Khawam, will feature the latest in casual wear, sportswear, executive and formal attire from national and international well known designers. The media is invited to attend the fashion show following the press conference.

In addition, members of the media will be able to vote for the first ever Metropolitan Fashion Week Awards with categories for Best Designer of the Year, Boutique, Fashion Blog and Model of the Year plus many more. Ballots are available now – email  Info@metropolitanfashionweek.net or receive them at the November 10th press conference.

Metropolitan Fashion Week Press Conference
WHEN: Thursday, November 10. 2011 at 6:00pm
WHERE: 415 Westlake
415 Westlake Ave N
Seattle, WA 98109
