Prizes for our holiday Social Media Campaign with #Vankiss

In the next few days our neighbourhood will have 12 #Vankiss Mistletoe brackets installed through out our BIA, including 2 brackets in the expansion area. As part of the social media campaign we are working on, we hope to offer prizes from local businesses to encourage participation and engagement using our hashtag #MyMountPleasant.

At our Marketing and Special Events Committee meeting in November, it was suggested the instead of asking our members to donate prizes the MPBIA could purchase prizes at a reduced cost, such as a $20 gift certificate for $10.

I am now reaching out to our membership to see if your business would be willing to participate by offering a prize/gift. The goal is to engage with the public in a fun and way and bring people from the street into our businesses. Prizes could include gift certificates, tickets to a show or an product or service your business offers.

We hope to offer at least one prize a day, letting our social media audience decipher a simple clue that will lead them to the right location that makes them eligible to win. It will be called the 12 days on Christmas in My Mount Pleasant and it will start on the 12th of December.

If you have any questions or suggestions or if you have a suitable prize you would like to offer please call or email
