It has become an annual thing for us - giving away gift certificates as a welcome present to those who join our Facebook community
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Bows-n-Ties.com, a well-known online retailer of men’s ties and other men's fashion accessories, recently announced a new promotion in which each new Facebook fan will receive a $10 gift certificate to the site. In order to get the gift certificate, all users need to do is (1) become a fan of the site’s Facebook page, and (2) post a note on the page’s Timeline.
“Facebook and other social media sites are more important for us now than ever in the past,” says Bows-n-Ties.com founder Hendrik Pohl. “Not only does it allow us to stay in touch with customers and fill them in on news and new items in the store in real time, but it adds a human element to Bows-n-Ties.com that is difficult to relay via traditional business marketing techniques. We’re looking to foster a community of like-minded, fashion-forward individuals, and Facebook is the perfect platform for doing so.
Once users complete the above requirements, they will receive a $10 gift certificate via email. The gift certificate can be used on anything in the store, although Pohl recommends putting it towards a set of social media-inspired cufflinks.
“It’s amazing to us how much social media has become ingrained in today’s culture,” says Pohl. “It’s not just something that happens on the Internet; social media is everywhere. These cufflinks are creative, fun, and just another example of how wide of an impact Facebook and other, similar sites have had on the modern world. I wouldn’t hesitate to wear them myself!”
This isn’t the first time Bows-n-Ties.com has given away gift certificates to facebook fans. "It has become an annual thing for us - giving away gift certificates as a welcome present to those who join our Facebook community", says Pohl.
