Share Article

Twitter followers, plus new and previous Facebook fans of BuildDirect now have a chance to win a professional flooring kit, including power tools, and safety equipment with a value of approximately $700 CDN. This contest is a celebration of the company's enthusiasm and active involvement in social media over the past year and a half.

After that, the more you 'retweet' our tweets with the #FloorKit hashtag, the more chances you have of winning. It's easy.

Online building materials company BuildDirect has launched a contest driven by Twitter and Facebook to win a DeWalt miter saw, a Roberts jamb saw, and all of the accessories necessary for a do-it-yourself wood flooring installation. The deadline of the contest is October 30, 2009.

The reason for the contest is simple; to reward site visitors, fans of the company, and followers on Twitter, for engaging with company content, and also with company personnel. It's also for the purposes of getting useful content about building materials in front of more people than ever before.

BuildDirect Vice President of Marketing Rob Davidson explains. "We've always been interested in building relationships and being helpful to people out there interested in building materials and in our company. And our engagement on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter over the past year and a half has really expanded the possibilities for that. We want to keep building our audience, and to keep producing content that is valuable to them and their followers and friends so that we're reaching and engaging with more and more people who can benefit from our expertise. This contest we're running is about all of those things. And we want everyone to have fun with it, too."

Entering the contest is simply a matter of sharing 'tweets' which are tagged with the label, or 'hashtag' #FloorKit with twitter 'followers'. This wins any Twitter user who 're-tweets' one chance to win the flooring kit worth $700 Canadian, which includes the power saws, safety equipment, tape measure, a pull bar, and more. "And if you become a new fan of our Facebook page, you get five chances to win the floor kit," Rob explains. "After that, the more you 'retweet' our tweets with the #FloorKit hashtag, the more chances you have of winning. It's easy."

The contest runs until October 30, 2009 at 12PM PST where a name will be drawn at random. The contest is open to any North American resident, excluding Quebec residents. Full details of the contest can be found in the BuildDirect Newsroom on the flooring installation kit page.
