Last year we gave away an iPad to one of our Facebook fans, hundreds of people entered our contest and it was our biggest and best contest so far, hopefully we will beat it one day!
Here’s a collection of photos from the TopLock Locksmiths Facebook Page that we used promoting our contest that were taken by our social media guy Keith. He put in a lot of effort to make sure this contest complied with Facebook’s terms and conditions for contests, (using a contest app) and following Victorian state laws for contest sweepstakes guidelines.
Here’s our initial promotional pictures for the contest including one with Justin Fankhauser our Director and then some pictures of the prize. As there have been many iPad scams online, we wanted to post pictures with Justin and our logo with the actual prize to make sure people knew our contest was legitimate. When people use generic pictures for contests it it can set off alarm bells to some people.
We initially didn’t have our Facebook contest app set up for mobile entries and we had a few people complain that they couldn’t access it via their phones so Keith fixed that up and we used this image to promote our mobile entries.
Leading up to the end of the contest we had these countdown pictures taken around the TopLock office.
As a bit of fun we made this picture of Justin with pop singer Rihanna’s hair and with our contest ending around the time of the Melbourne Cup and the elections in the USA (that Obama won) we decided to mention those in context of winning our contest.
We used the picture on the left to announce the winner of our iPad competition after having contacted her via phone to confirm her details (to make sure she was a real person). As per the contest conditions we asked Nicole to come in and collect the prize in person. This is the photo on the right of her collecting the prize with Justin so our fans could see the contest come full circle.
