Giveaways/Promotions/Contests for non-social media users

We run a lot of great promotions and device giveaway deals through our blog and social media accounts. These generate a lot of buzz around the company on social media and do a lot to strengthen our bond with our customers. 

While these giveaways and promotions are awesome, I think it would be a great idea to allow customers to participate in these contests/promotions even if they do not use social media, or perhaps run a promotion with some other creative use of the internet instead of through social media. 

Submissions could be run by email or perhaps through comments on our blog post, ensuring the only requirement is that the participant only has an active account with Ting, instead of an active social media account. 

I believe this would be a great way to engage the portion of our customers who do not use social media!

  • Hi Shanti,

    I'm one of those customers who like Ting a lot but doesn't do blogs and social media — perhaps because I'm a geezer. It'd be great to be able to take advantage of promotions or deals, but your post isn't clear about what you're saying or what you want: is there something for those of us you've described to do? Or would you like us to just speak up? Or are you just testing the waters to see if there's any interest in this?

    Cheers,

    David Brick

  • Hey David, 

    Shanti was bringing this up and I think forgot to tick the box to mark this as an internal forum post. Marking it that way means employees get to see and comment on it and provide feedback. 

    We've actually got a few internal forums on this, so I think this one was posted by mistake. We're looking at all our non-social media options, because you're not alone. Stay tuned!

  • Thanks Mitch, makes sense. 

    But whatever happens, don't make me do FB and Twitter and the like. <g>
