Happy Birthday, Facebook!

Happy Birthday Facebook!

Facebook is marking its 12th birthday today, by declaring this day worldwide friends day. With that in mind, we wanted to hook up some of our friends (all of you) with some 815 swag. Who knows – we might even have something else up our sleeve.

All you have to do is “like” our most recent Facebook post (the one with the birthday cake), and respond with one of your friends tagged. That’s it! We’ll pick some lucky winners at random tomorrow!

You have all day to do this. Literally. We’ll stop accepting submissions at midnight, Central time.

Good luck!

815 Media’s best friends

Ok, so here’s the deal…We love, love, LOVE to see our clients sporting our 815 gear. Keep those vacation photos coming! But we also have a soft spot in our hearts for animals — dogs, cats, cattle, horses, pot-belly pigs. You name it, we love it. Well, except for maybe mice, but that’s a story for another day.

Anyway, we are so excited to announce our first ever photo contest featuring YOU and your ANIMALS! All you have to do is send us your favorite photo of your pets for a chance to win an iPad mini AND an 815 Limited Edition sweatshirt. Bonus points will go to those of you who send us photos connecting your pets to 815 in one way or another. Remember 815 is a technology agency located in Princeton, Illinois specializing in web design, mobile repairs, online marketing, and more.

To get this party started, we thought we’d share some of our favorite photos with our best friends. I mean who doesn’t love a golden retriever sporting some trendy sunglasses?!

Her future with 815 Media is so bright!

Her future with 815 Media is so bright!

We will be accepting photos through Friday, October 10 and voting will continue through Friday, October 24 with the winner being announced the week of October 26. With each submission please include your name, address, pet’s name and send to katlyn@eightonefive.com. To vote for your favorites, all you’ll have to do is ‘like’ and share the photo on Facebook here.

Please note, by sending us your photos you are agreeing to allow us to use your photos for any promotions that may appear on our website, blog, Facebook, or any other social media outlet.

Happy voting and good luck!

“Liking” Our Way to 1K

As many of you know, we’re in the middle of a giveaway at 815 Media.  If this is the first time you’re hearing about our giveaway, click here for all the details.

The goal of our giveaway is to achieve 1000 “Likes” on Facebook, and you all have been phenomenal in helping us get closer and closer to this goal!  You’ve been so great, that we want to step things up a little bit.  Here’s how it will work:

All the previous giveaway details still apply – with one exception.  When we hit 1000 “Likes”, we are going to give away a brand new iPad mini, which was just announced today by Apple.

As always, anybody who “Likes” us is eligible for this giveaway.  So, make sure you “Like” us, make sure your friends “Like” us, and make sure your friends’ friends “Like” us.

That’s it!  Thanks for your help, and we’ll see you on the other side of 1000 “Likes”!

“Liking” Our Way to 1K

It’s no secret by now – we love giveaways at 815 Media!  We have a new contest that we think you’re going to love!  Here’s how it works:

We want to achieve 1000 “Likes” on Facebook, and we need your help to do it!  We’re asking you to “Like” us, if you haven’t already, and encourage your friends, family, kids, colleagues, and even your pets, to “Like” us on Facebook.

Every time we achieve 100 new “Likes”, we’ll give away some of our famous t-shirts.  And when we achieve 1000 total “Likes”, we’ll give away a whole bunch of our t-shirts.  It’s a win win!

So, put simply, as of this posting, we have 464 “Likes”.  When we hit 500 “Likes”, we’ll give away some t-shirts.  We’ll do it again when we hit 600, 700, 800, and 900.  And when we hit 1000, we’ll give away lots of them.  Anybody who “Likes” us is eligible for this drawing!

Make sense?  Good luck to all of you, and thanks for “Liking” us.  We “Like” you too!

‘Tis the Season… For Freebies!

At 815 Media, we recently finished our first “Freebie” giveaway.  We gave away an Apple iPad 2 as our grand prize, and also dished out some t-shirts, too.  Not only was this a fantastic way to introduce our company to people here in the Illinois Valley, and elsewhere, but we enjoyed seeing how surprised and excited the winners were, too.  At 815, we like to think that we do things a little differently, and to the best of our knowledge, nobody around here has ever done anything like this.  Congratulations again to our winners – we hope you’ll enjoy your new freebies!  To those who weren’t as lucky this time around, keep your chin up!  We plan on doing something like this again in the future.  If you missed out completely on this giveaway the first time around, make sure you sign up for our email newsletter, and “Like” us on Facebook.  Don’t worry – we won’t send you spam – we promise.

As the end of 2011 draws near, we want to pass along our sincere well wishes to you and yours.  We appreciate you supporting 815 Media, and look forward to a terrific new year ahead!  We have some great stuff planned for 2012, so stay tuned for more details!
