The Clubhouse Birdhouse is a heavy favorite to win, given the timing of the 2011 Masters
Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) March 29, 2011
Yard Envy, the Alpharetta based lawn and garden e-commerce company specializing in bird houses and feeders, has announced a birdhouse contest that is directed at both the birding and golf community. One of the potential bird houses to be claimed is a fully functional bird house that closely resembles the Augusta National Golf Clubhouse.
Using social media as the platform for the contest, participants are being asked to cast their vote for the Most Popular Bird House of 2011. The birdhouse contest is open to previous customers as well as the general public. Participants will be directed to a voting page on the Yard Envy company page where there will be a list of the six best selling birdhouses at YardEnvy.com from 2010, which will include the Clubhouse Birdhouse. The contest will run for two weeks, beginning at midnight on Friday, March 25, 2011 and ending Sunday, April 10, 2011. The winner will receive the winning selection for the Most Popular Bird House of 2011 contest.
Additional bird houses that will be contending for the honors of the Most Popular Bird House of 2011 include the White Novelty Cape Cod Cottage and the Copper Songbird Bird House, which uses bright white walls and a six-sided solid copper roof to deflect the suns rays. The Cape Cod Cottage was also the best selling bird house for its manufacturer, Home Bazaar, receiving national attention through Garden and Decor magazine, as well as being used for display in Sax 5th Avenue department store windows.
When asked if he had any personal favorites, Yard Envy owner Chris Miller responded, "The Clubhouse Birdhouse is a heavy favorite to win, given the timing of the 2011 Masters," adding, "Every year the Clubhouse is one of our best selling decorative bird houses." The construction of the Clubhouse Bird House includes a removable bottom panel for easy cleaning, and the architectural features include Southern plantation design with balconies that wrap around the building on four sides, as well as the characteristic roof and chimney stacks.
Yard Envy announced its new consumer-driven approach to rating popular bird houses after researching visitor trends and soliciting feedback from previous customers. Social media was chosen as the platform due to its ability to create real-time interaction with participants, and the ability for fans to view votes as they are cast.
"We are very excited to have our fans voting on our Most Popular Birdhouse" stated Jeanette DiCamillo, assistant buyer at Yard Envy. "We are always seeking new designs for decorative birdhouses, and we are looking forward to the feedback on our selection."
The online retailer of bird houses invested heavily in decorative bird houses for 2011, and added several new styles. Chris Miller recognized the possibility of new bird house designs surpassing current best sellers, confirming, "Our partners have provided us with exclusive bird house designs for the season. We are already seeing one of our new birdhouses advancing to the best seller list." Current best sellers are highlighted on the What's Hot page at YardEnvy.com.
Yard Envy is encouraging bird house enthusiasts and golf fans to participate in the bird house contest for the opportunity to win a free bird house from one of the six best sellers. Yard Envy will announce the winning bird house on its Facebook company page after the 2011 Masters winner is announced. The winner of the bird house contest will be contacted via email and will receive an order number for their bird house, and there will be no cost to the winner.
