Are You Briar Chapel's Best Buddy?

Thursday, March 1, 2012

 

By Jami Pearson
Marketing Coordinator

 

With Earth Day fast approaching, we at Briar Chapel want to pay tribute to Mother Earth by hosting a fun contest, open to all of our friends, in the hopes of finding our #bcBestBuddy. What makes someone our best buddy, you might ask.  The way we at Briar Chapel see it, it’s someone who loves our brand, our community and living a green lifestyle, and makes an effort to share this information through their various social networking outlets. For example, do you read our blog or Facebook page and comment? Do you “check in” to various spots around the neighborhood using Foursquare? What about our events – Did you attend our Pepper Festival and tweetpic photos? While these are just a few examples, you get the idea!

If you partake in things of this nature, Briar Chapel wants to reward you with our “Best Buddy Contest,” beginning March 2 and ending April 15, 2012, with the grand prize winner being announced on April 21 at our Earth Day event.  Each week, participants will have the opportunity to earn a maximum of 50 points through various tasks. While we will give you specific opportunities to earn 25 points each week, which are mandatory, the other 25 are up to you to acquire through the many methods we’ve laid out below. We will reward the Buddy with the most points each week with cool gifts (iTunes cards, certificates to local restaurants, gas cards, etc.), and our Grand Prize winner will win a “Buddy” scooter, similar to the one pictured. Interested? Keep reading to find out how to enter.

 

How to Play:

Over the next 45 days, we will post a series of weekly blogs that will ask you to do specific things: ex. We may ask you to visit the community and check in on FourSquare @ the Dog Park, or you could be asked to retweet an announcement about an upcoming event or upload a Photo to Facebook of your favorite kitchen at Briar Chapel.

 

We will monitor all that is happening via social media networks and will allocate points based upon what you guys do.   There are multiple social media networks that Participants can use to obtain points.  Below is a list of the activities that are recognized to obtain points:
