OneKontest allows you to create and manage Twitter based competitions designed to encourage social engagement.

You can create #hashtag contests, where users must tweet a specific #hashtag to enter; Tweet + Follow contest, where users must be following your account to enter and Twtpoll contest, where you can ask a question and the winners will be picked at random from the people who have answered correctly. Tweets can be made directly from a OneKontest promotion page or any other Twitter client.

Here’s an example of a recent #hashtag promotion by WWE.

Users of OneKontest have 3 payment options to choose from. There’s a pay-as-you-go option for $29 per promotion, a basic package for $49 per month and a premium package for $99 per month. The premium package lets you create an unlimited number of branded promotions for up to 5 Twitter accounts, whereas the basic package limits you to just one Twitter account.

All-in-all OneKontest is a great way to generate social media “buzz” and conversation surrounding a particular product or service. It’s also a fun way for businesses to reach out and engage their target audience.
