1,000+ Fans on Facebook! Let's Celebrate With A Contest!

by Seth Haber - Founder, CEO 2 min read


Trek Light Gear's Facebook page just passed 1,000 fans and we're ready to give away some great prizes to celebrate!

When we've given hammocks away on Facebook in the past, we usually just pick a random winner from the list of fans but this time we're going to do things a little differently.  Going forward we're going to make sure that we're actively rewarding our best fans and giving everyone a chance to get involved and stand out from the crowd for a better chance to win.

So to start things off we're going to do a Facebook Photo Contest.  Unlike our ongoing photo contest you don't need to already own any Trek Light Gear to get involved, here are the details:   All you have to do is make a sign that says 'This would be better with Trek Light Gear!' Big signs may win some points, but you can enter with a napkin, business card, or anything you can think of as long as the words can be read in the photo.  Then, just snap a photo showing us a place or a scene where you'd much rather be hanging out in your new Trek Light Hammock if you had one.   Maybe it's your cube at work, that scenic overlook on your favorite hike, or just that perfect piece of space on your apartment balcony.   Get creative and show us why everything would be better if you just had a portable, lightweight hammock from Trek Light Gear!

HOW TO SUBMIT: In order to win you must be a fan of Trek Light Gear on Facebook and your picture should be uploaded directly to our Fan Page. (Just click on the Photos tab at the top of the page (or click here to go directly to the photo page)  and you'll be able to upload your photo to the Fan Photos section.) Updated: To upload your photo, just click on the Photo icon underneath where it says 'What's on your mind?' on the main Wall of our page.  Your photo will be posted to the wall and it will automatically be added to the Fan Photos section.

PRIZES: There will be a Grand Prize winner and a First Place prize.  First Place will receive a Double Hammock and our Rope and Carabiner Hanging Kit, everything you need to turn that dream spot into a reality. The Grand Prize winner will receive  a Trek Light Gear Ultimate Bundleincluding a Double Hammock, Rope and Carabiner Bundle, an Accessory Pack (including our Bug Free Hammock Shield and our soon to be released Rain Fly) and of course an Eco Tote!

The contest runs through Labor Day and we'll announce the winners sometime on or after September 7th. You can enter as many times as you want, every picture is a chance to win!  In order to make this a success, we need all the help we can get to spread the word about the contest and get the entries pouring in.  So, please: tweet, retweet, stumble, digg, blog, share, like or whatever you can do to help.  And then step away from the computer and take a picture!
