We’re really excited to give our gear away to fans. ... Whether you’re filming in a remote location, or just need to charge your iPhone in a pinch, everybody has a use for solar power.
SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) April 04, 2012
Facebook introduced its Timeline format to business profiles on March 30. To celebrate its new Facebook Timeline, Goal Zero is giving away portable solar gear every weekday in April.
“We’re really excited to give our gear away to fans,” said James Atkin, a social media manager at Goal Zero. “Whether you’re filming in a remote location, or just need to charge your iPhone in a pinch, everybody has a use for solar power.”
Goal Zero is a provider of innovative portable solar systems that power a variety of USB, AC and DC devices.
To enter the giveaway, consumers simply visit the Goal Zero Facebook page and click the Goal Zero Giveaway button located on the right hand side of the page below the Timeline cover photo. Goal Zero only requires contest participants to enter their full name and email address to enter the giveaway.
Prizes include Luna USB lights, Chubby lights, Solo lights, Rock Out portable speakers, the Nomad 7 and Guide 10 adventure kits and Guide 10 mobile kits.
The giveaways celebrate Goal Zero’s new Facebook Timeline profile and the company’s new identity on the social media juggernaut.
“We have a Facebook page called Goal0, but we recently decided to change the name to Goal Zero,” Goal Zero spokesman Scott Sorensen said. “We created the giveaways to encourage our Goal0 fans to follow us to the new Goal Zero Facebook page. We will eventually delete the Goal0 page.”
Once a Facebook page has reached 100 fans, the ability to change the name on the account is disabled. Social media experts say that Facebook put the restriction in place to keep businesses and individuals from creating a generic page, building up a fan base and changing the name later on.
“Facebook accounts are a huge asset to businesses nowadays,” Sorensen said. “It’s unfortunate that Facebook doesn’t allow companies to change their page name. On the bright side, it gives us the opportunity to get creative and have fun.”
