Want to engage with your audience and make more money? Try running a social media contest. 

You probably enjoy trying to win stuff for free when other companies run similar contests, but you should also realize that those companies wouldn't run contests if they weren't profitable.

In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Neil Patel walks you through the steps of how to make your own contest that actually ends up making you money.
