Pet Event – The Cardboard Cut-Out Social Media Contest
We actually found this event on the Best Western Denver Southwest’s Fan Page, where the hotel has a dinosaur theme. In a fit of brilliance, the hotel ran a Pet Cardboard Box Dinosaurification Challenge, where basically entrants would draw a dinosaur on a cardboard box, and stick their pet’s head through it for some fun. Yes, it’s goofy, but it did a great job at interacting with their fans! Plus, the pictures ended up getting shared not only on Facebook, but throughout all sorts of sites, each time creating opportunities for free publicity. But even on just Facebook, these were the basic stats for the kitten T-Rex picture: Would you like that type of reaction to your contests? This same concept, or one similar, would be a great fit for a “pet friendly” apartment community! ...

The ABC Game, Social Media Style
For those who have been on long road trips, you probably know the ABC game, where you have to spot each letter of the alphabet, finally getting to “Z” before anyone else in the car. Most of us know the pain of trying to get the dreaded letter “Q” when all you see are crops and cows! Well, this idea uses this basic concept, but applied to your Facebook Fan Page! The Rules: · Residents must take a picture of signs around town that include each letter of the alphabet, and post them to your fan page one by one. · Each picture/sign/location can only be used for one letter, so “Abracadabra Magic Shop” couldn’t be used for A,B,C, and D. (Also, multiple pictures...

Send out your monthly newsletter advertise the BINGO game on your facebook, twitter, etc. Have them come to the office to pick up their unique BINGO card. As they follow you and/or log in daily to these sites you post the numbers drawn daily if they have it on their card they mark it off once they have a BINGO they call or come by the office to pick up their winnings. This does several things gets them active in the community, creates participitation and gets them on your social networks to read whats happening at your community.

Benefits of Most Wanted Apartment Contest: *Keeps users engaged on your facebook page *Gives contestants and voters a deeper sense of community *Gives other residents and prospects decorating and furniture placement ideas *Provides the property with several different photos to be used in marketing *Increases the number of "likes" on the property's facebook page ***The photos below are actual photos submitted by our residents.

A great idea to engage residents on your property's Facebook page is to have a monthly "Pet of the Month" contest where residents post pictures of their pet w/ name, age, breed. All submissions in by the 15th of every month and the drawing held no later than the 20th of the month. The winner then receives a pet gift bag filled with dog (or cat) treats, toys, a gift certificate for one grooming of the pet at a local pet shop (not a chain store! keep it local! business owner could probably donate this) and 1 waived pet fee (if applicable) If by chance you don't have a Facebook page, this can also work to just have residents email pictures or bring them into the office.
