Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) August 4, 2008
White Horse, a full-service digital agency specializing in Web 2.0 media convergence, announced it has launched an online instant-win contest for Mountain Hardwear, a leading outdoor consumer goods company, to promote its new line of urban backpacks and build brand awareness.
To grow market share in the increasingly competitive backpack space, Mountain Hardwear is introducing a line of rugged urban packs that appeals to tech-savvy college students and young professionals. To launch the effort, White Horse designed an online promotion to create product buzz. Each day visitors to the Pack A Day microsite (Http://packaday.mountainhardwear.com ) can enter to instantly win one of Mountain Hardwear's new sleek and rugged urban backpacks. Daily prizes include exclusive pre-released packs from the 2009 spring backpack collection.
Building on its series of social media marketing for consumer retail clients, White Horse designed the contest with social media tactics such as a viral "e-mail a friend" feature as well as the option to opt in to the Mountain Hardwear e-newsletter. Calls to action also appear on the Mountain Hardwear Web site (http://www.mountainhardwear.com), blog (http://www.hardwearsessions.com), e-newsletter, and social networking sites. Retailers, friends, and partners have been encouraged to place announcements on their Web sites and MySpace or Facebook pages.
White Horse also created a digital advertising campaign for the contest which will appear on Yahoo!
The 31-day contest runs during the month of August. As of August 18, the contest had received 51,000 entries.
