Facebook Testimonial Contest Helps Generate 170+ New Credit Union Members! Recently we helped run a testimonial contest campaign for one of our Credit Union clients, AERO Federal Credit Union, and the results were definitely worth sharing. AERO wanted a way to better engage current members and also generate content that would be usable again in the future to reach potential new members. We also suggested that they needed to find a way to put a human face on the outstanding member service experience at their Credit Union. And voila… the Annual “My AERO Ah-Ha Moment” Facebook Contest was born!...

Who doesn't love a cute pet photo? The answer is simple...not many! In building upon on the "National Pet Day" holiday, we worked with one of our Credit Union clients recently to offer a pet photo contest. The contest ran for 5 days, which started on a Sunday and ended on a Thursday. We kept the rules simple and straight forward. The entries could either be posted to our client's facebook page, or emailed directly to our client's marketing team. The contest resulted in two winners who were awarded with Visa gift cards.
