Basatne Electronics announced over the weekend their new social media sweepstakes where they are offering up a Nikon 1 J1 Advance camera as the prize. This is the third in a series of monthly sweepstakes where they have given prizes to Facebook fans and Twitter followers including the Samsung Galaxy S3 and two Google Nexus 7 tablets. The online electronics store aims to spread awareness of their product offerings which comprises mainly of unlocked phones and tablets, cameras, and lenses.

"We’re thrilled to see the impact that our social media campaign is having on our consumer base,” said Ammar Aboulnasr, CEO of Basatne Electronics. “We're able to share information directly with the people who are interested in it, and in return we've been learning what is most important to them when purchasing our products.” Recent conversations on various social media channels encouraged the company to extend their optional warranty program last month.

The company has also seen a shift in focus from unlocked phones and tablets to include cameras and lenses as a main product offering. "We've seen that our customers from the photography community tend to be more involved and vocal on our social media accounts," Aboulnasr explained, "so we are working to provide more interesting and interactive content for this group." The sudden influx of camera interest was a factor in the decision to use the Nikon 1 J1 Advance camera as the sweepstakes prize this month. The camera features a built-in flash, lens mount, and a hybrid autofocus system that uses phase and contrast detection, making it an excellent on-the-go option for the novice and professional alike.

The Nikon camera is not the only prize available to the company's Twitter followers, however. Earlier this week Basatne Electronics announced on Twitter that they aim to grow to 10,000 fans and will be giving out prizes when different milestones are reached. The company is giving away a $100 gift card to their online store for every 1000 followers, and a 8GB Google Nexus 7 Tablet for every 2500 users following their account until they hit their target of 10k followers.

The sweepstakes is open to residents of Canada and the United States. Canadian residents are encouraged to visit for information about the contests as well as products and services, and the rest of the world can find more information on
