Spring Marketing – Announcing our first Twitter contest

Spring is finally just around the corner! In honor of this being time of new beginnings and refreshing the old we are devoting this month’s blogs to revamping marketing efforts. Our first blog in this series is on refreshing social media plans with contests, including launching our Twitter contest! Learn more about social media contests in our past blog.

Last month we ran two photo contests on our Facebook page. The first one was in honor of our company name Across the Horizons. We requested people send in their favorite horizons photos. To view all the photos visit our Horizons Album. The winner of the horizons contest was Jenna Domingo (picture below).

Our second photo contest was in honor of the snow storm we received here in the NC Piedmont area. Visit our Snow Album to view all the fun photos. The winner of this contest was Megan Gioeli (picture below).

Photo contests are just one type of contest to run. They are certainly visual and a lot of fun but also typically requires a lot more work.

As we mentioned at the beginning of this blog we are going to announce our upcoming Twitter contest. We are going to simply ask a question (below) and everyone who answers with a tweet to us @AcrossHorizons and the hashtag listed below is automatically entered. We will run the contest now until 7 p.m. on this Sunday March 9. The winner will be picked randomly and receive a Starbucks gift card.

What is your favorite social media and why? #favsocial

So again make sure to post any answers for the above question to @AcrossHorizons with the hashtag #favsocial to be entered in the contest to win a Starbucks gift card!

We will announce the winner at 7 p.m. on Sunday so be sure to follow us on Twitter! We can’t wait to hear the social media love. Good luck to everyone!

Kick off Spring and revamp social media efforts this year with a fun social media contest.  Have questions on what type of contest to run or how to launch it? Email us any questions at contact@acrossthehorizons.com.
