We tried a twitter campaign and got some extra followers but not much else besides that. The person that won our contest / giveaway didn't even end up using our hosting

Its easy to use Twitter/Facebook etc. and get followers and traffic to your site, but these don't pay the bills, the hard work is getting these visitors converted to sales.

Agreed - lesson learned on that one. I'm a tech guy trying to learning the ropes of marketing . Trial and error, repeat.

What about binding them to having to be your an active client in order to be entered throughout the giveaway length?

For instance if the giveaway entry is 2 months and someone entered 5 days later then they must be an active paying customer for the that month plus the following month.

I would think these restrictions would probably encourage at least some conversion and another reason "hey I could win something and try this hosting out at the same time" sort of thing.

I have but couldn't get it to catch on. We offered a $100 for the 1000th share. I think we got about 12 shares and it died.

We have never tried a contest but do advertise discounts on both Twitter and Facebook and that does pay off. We have had new customers sign up as long as a month after we posted the discount code.
