The Whitley Bay Giveaway
In January we began planning our first competition we’d run exclusively online through our social media called: 'The Whitley Bay Giveaway'.
During the opening of our third store in Whitley Bay we had so much support from local businesses that we wanted to give something back and create an exciting opportunity for our followers, residents and regional shoppers!
Going door to door to retailers up and down the street, we were met with an overwhelming amount of enthusiasm whilst Matt pitched our idea: to create an online competition whereby the winner gets a collection of vouchers from Whitley Bay’s best independent shops!
And wow, we had a fantastic response from so many retailers and managed to raise a whopping £825 worth of vouchers! What an amazing prize!
The competition ran for an entire week where we asked people to like, follow, comment and share our post. That week we took the opportunity to showcase the businesses involved on our stories all week by sharing videos and images and allowing them to tell their story to a new audience.
The engagement we received was incredible, with over 500 entries across both Facebook and Instagram. We also saw more than 400 new Instagram followers join our online family and help make the competition a success.
Congratulations to Katie Crosby who won the £825 of vouchers and thank you to everyone involved in making this a fabulous competition!
