Get Onboard with Samsung
Samsung TV’s “Like It, Reveal It, Win It” campaign leveraged social media to its best. Each week, the company gave away a product on Facebook, encouraging customers to regularly participate and invite friends to join in. After “liking” the company’s Facebook page, customers enter to win Samsung products by unlocking pixels. The more pixels a user unlocks, the more chances he or she has to win the hidden weekly Samsung prize. With this campaign, Samsung wanted to increase its Facebook fan acquisition. As a result, they added more than 12,000 new fans within the first week and a half. The company reports that they continue to gain new fans as the contest continues.
