February Giveaway #1

  • Comment
I'm going to be completely straight with you, we're currently working on increasing our social media presence for Nexus Mods and have budgeted a small amount each month towards increasing our social media readership. We could certainly put that money straight into purchasing Facebook and Twitter ads, but I much prefer the idea of using that money instead to fund giveaways that benefit our users and that everyone can enter (even if you don't care about or hate social media).

To that end, we plan to run fortnightly giveaways for Steam gift cards. Anyone can enter, and we provide additional entries for users who join and interact with us on social media.

Why do we care about social media? We're using our social media channels to provide a steady stream of modding news and hidden gems for as many games as possible that Nexus Mods supports. For some, social media is an addictive daily habit, for others, it's the devil incarnate (with most sat somewhere in the middle of those two extremes). We find it a useful alternative platform for sharing things with a wider reach and a larger audience of users. I know from our engagements in these channels that lots of people appreciate it too. Which is great! We also understand some of you don't care about social media, and that's fine too.

This week's giveaway is for a £35 Steam Gift card (which converts to your own local currency on Steam if you win) which is roughly $50 depending on the exchange rate. To enter, all you need to do is head on over to our competition entry page, read our competition rules and enter your (very limited, don't worry) details so that if you win, we can contact you. That's it. If you want a few more chances to win, you can follow the instructions to increase your chances of winning.

As I said, we're simply testing these giveaways out at the moment and will see how people respond. If it's positive and we receive good engagement we'll likely increase the rewards as a result.

Here's that competition page link again, just in case you missed it. Good luck!

    What social media sites is Nexus Mods on? I have a huge distrust of social media sites in general, and the competition was closed by the time I went to check the page.

      Darn. The only social media site I have is Google+, and only because of GMail. Thanks for replying.

      We will be doing a lot more of these going forward! (Every two weeks or so to be more accurate)

      If you keep a close eye on the news here or on our social media pages there will be plenty more opportunities to come.

    I'd love to help, but I'm just not a social dude. Sad face.

      You can still enter with a valid email address!

      Going forward we will also be implementing a mandatory action that will require users to leave a comment here on Nexus Mods and enter their NXM username. That way we can ensure that the winner comes from Nexus Mods (and it will give those without social media an additional entry option!)

      I think that using the nexus user name should be a requirement. You are offering a giveaway, I feel it should be for the community, not just any random person. It would mean more to the members if it was offered to someone who supports the site and the community instead of finding out some person won it off twiddle or whatever that crap is who has never even been to the site.
