  65. A3. I would say keeping the momentum going can be a challenge at time. #SocialCafe #TBW
  66. @easy_promos_usa Just keeping them short. Trying for no more than 10 options. It drains people that are trying to enter. #TBW #SocialCafe
  67. @socialwebcafe every contest with our app or other needs to be managed well and with a plan of action. #socialcafe #tbw
  68. A3. It's a big task to run a promotion because you have to PROMOTE the promotion, lol #SocialCafe #TBW

  75. @socialwebcafe cheating is a challenge. Admins who know how to head this off have no issues. .... #socialcafe #tbw

  77. @TheBlogWorkshop A3 #TBW #SocialCafe some of my problems are losing some new followers once a contest is over.
  78. @socialwebcafe Best thing is to ask us when you set up your contest. The key is how you award votes. #socialcafe #tbw
