STP LikesIf you’re trying to win one of the the three GoPro Hero3 cameras, the Magisto Premium upgrades or eGift cards that we’re giving away as part of our Adventure Video Contest with Sierra Trading Post then you know that the key is to get as many likes on your Movie as possible. The three grand prize winners will be selected from the top 50 most-liked Movies, and the creators of all top 50 Movies will win free one-year Magisto upgrades. We’ve put together a few tips to help you get more likes on your #SierraTradingPost Movie, to increase your chances of being one of the top 50!

First things first: Don’t forget to use #SierraTradingPost in your title!

When making a Movie for the Adventure Video Contest there’s one big rule that you have to adhere to – be sure to include the hashtag #SierraTradingPost in your title. If you don’t, we won’t know that you want to enter your Movie in the contest and none of your likes will count! When you include the hashtag, your Movie will appear on our contest page with all the other entries. It is from that pool that winners will be selected.

Remember: It’s “Likes” on Magisto that count

It’s all well and good if your friends “like” your Movie on Facebook, but when it comes to the contest, we’re looking for the Movies that get the most likes on Magisto. Friends can like your Movie by pressing the heart icon on the Movie page. The number next to the heart signifies the number of likes you have so far.

Ask and you shall receive!

When it comes to getting likes, the best thing you can do is ask! Magisto lets you share your Movie link to Facebook, Twitter and email. You’ll find all these options when you click the Share button on the Movie page. But don’t just share – write a note along with the link explaining to your friends and family that you’re trying to win the Adventure Video Contest and that you’re trying to get as many likes as possible. Friends and family are a lot more likely to help you out with a like if they know it’s for a good cause (i.e. to help you win a prize!) – all you have to do is ask!

Don’t forget to like your own Movie!

Nobody should have 0 likes on their Movie, but it can be easy to forget that you can like your own! After your Movie is created, the first thing you should do is click that heart and like your own Movie to get the ball rolling!
