I'm writing to you to ask for support for our cause.
As you may know, Oamaru has remained in the top 5 of the Gigatown competition due to the strong support we received at the beginning of the competition, boosting our score into high figures almost from day 1.
A recent Chorus competition that had the postential to earn 1000 points per entry has just finished with the scoreboards being updated later this week to show a change across the board that is likely to remove Oamaru from the top 5 and completely re-order the leaderboard.
We need to be in the top 5 to have a chance in winning, so I'm hoping that we can raise more support from followers new and old by encouraging businesses to take part.
Other towns are encouraging participation by giving away products, servicies or vouchers from local businesses. In return that business is promoted on the towns Gigatown facebook page.
We would like to try a similar endeavour to see if we can re-kindle support and gain points. Would you like your business to be promoted on the GigatownOamaru Facebook page? We have over 2500 followers so have the potential to reach a large portion of Oamaru.
Let me know if you can provide items or servicies to be offered as prizes to supporters who post on our page along with the #gigatownoamaru tag. We have software that will randomly select one of the comments from a post on our page to select a winner. We will also encourage our supporters to like your page as well on the day you are supporting the competition, so a great way to increase your Facebook fan page numbers.
Check out the 101 tab above for tips on how to use social media to improve your customer numbers. Logon to the website with social media and register your business for access to videos and the ability to ask questions on the Gigatown Oamaru Forum.
