Re: BorRacing is giving away a 20" LED light Bar & other swag
I have had a few people contact me asking how do I enter to win the light bar if Im not one facebook. Myself personally am not on facebook other than an account I set up with my wife as my only friend because I got tired of my neighbors knowing more about my wife and kids then me so I 100% understand those that do not choose to use facebook. That being said here is the deal with the giveaway. What we are trying to do is promote the race and even if you’re not going to attend as a spectator or racer it helps to have a buzz about it. What facebook does is help spread that buzz. Say you have 100 FB friends and you choose to like and share our page. It’s a safe bet to think that at least a couple of your friends have the same likes and interests as you and may be interested in us also. So now one of your friends likes and shares our page and the cycle keeps going. So by us offering to give stuff away to get you to follow our page you give us access to your network of friends who we hope has a few who will also give us access the their network and so on. You can see this is a two way street so by us allowing people to enter to win a facebook giveaway when they are not members of facebook is counterproductive.
So I am 100% open to running another giveaway that can target another type of audience other than facebook. The thing is is what can we do that we can follow entries and progress, doesn’t cost us money other than the prize being given out and will actually have a positive benefit to getting people to the race? I am open for ideas?
Unfortunately things have had a steady decline with BOR since 2009 and while a lot of that is our fault if we don’t get a decent turn out for this event it very well may be time to throw in the towel. So Im open to doing whatever I can to make this an event people want to come and race and spectate at.
