Contests and giveaways are a timeless marketing tactic for businesses looking to increase engagement, drive traffic, and introduce a brand to consumers. In fact, according to one study 70% of Americans have participated in at least one contest or giveaway on social media. Of course using free samples in the food industry is nothing new. Businesses like Auntie Anne’s have been handing out pretzel samples for decades in the mall to attract new customers.  

In this article, I share contest giveaway caption ideas that are a fit for all seasons. Whether you’re a small business owner or a marketing professional, read on to discover how you can use these captions to drive both engagement and growth for a brand.
