Put your Social Media Skills to Use in Downtown Dash Scavenger Hunt
Do you love checking-in using Foursquare, using Twitter and sending Facebook updates? Do you think you're good at solving clues? If you've checked both boxes then you should keep reading.
Lotus Marketing, a consultancy in Chicago, is responsible for organizing Downtown Dash on September 10, 2011. Social Media types will be able to exercise their savvy skills as they navigate their way around Chicago seeking scavenges, looking for money saving clues and completing physical tasks. Teams of two will finalize their tasks by checking-in on Foursquare and sharing their findings with their social networks.
“We worked hard to find event partners that are receptive to hyper-local marketing efforts, enthusiastic about creating a one-of-a-kind social media experience, and interested the Chicago market. Downtown Dash event partners agree with our vision, that creating a unique and memorable experience for participants goes a lot farther than bombarding participants with one-sided, branded messaging.” said Leyla Arsan, of Lotus Marketing Services, creator of Downtown Dash. Even better, there's an after-party which is always a nice way to end any race.
Before the event takes place, teams of two will be able to create a Facebook fan page and collect points upon completing virtual tasks to win prizes regardless of who'll win the physical tasks on the day of the event.
This is a great way for anyone that uses Social Media on dally bases to showoff their skills and win prizes that include an Android powered tablet and a Marin bike.
