As we're in the middle of our series titled 10 Facebook Marketing Tips and Strategies for Your Healthcare Staffing Company we thought we'd point out a company that is applying some of these tips in some interesting ways.
Today, Medical Solutions announced their ‘Academy Awards® Prediction Contest' on their Facebook page. If you 'Like' the Medical Solutions Facebook page you can enter their contest by voting on your predictions for Academy Award nominations. Those who correctly predict the outcome of the 83rd Academy Awards on February 27, 2011 can win prizes.
Grand Prize: Samsung® Blu-Ray Home Theater System (approx. $450 value)
Second Prize: FLIP HD Ultra camera package (approx. $200 value)
Third Prize: NetFlix subscription for one-year ($120 value)
This contest is a great idea. It engages users in the Facebook platform without asking them to leave to another location. It's also something fun, interesting and relevant to their audience – not to mention timely because of the upcoming Academy Awards.
It will be interesting to hear about the success of this promotion.
