The World’s Crappiest Social Media Promotion Ever
Burlington Bytes is crowdsourcing our latest promotion and challenging our fans, friends of fans, and friends of friends of fans to stick the Burlington Bytes logo sticker in the most creative places possible. If you snap a photo of the Burlington Bytes sticker placed somewhere creative then tag Burlington Bytes, you could win a whopping $250.00 and never work again for the rest of your life. If the $250.00 isn’t exciting enough for you, wait there’s more! Your sticker image may also be featured in the upcoming Burlington Bytes calendar… but stay tuned on that because if the calendar is anything like this promotion it might also fall completely flat on it’s face.
Follow the steps below and we look forward to wading through your not-so-safe-for-work submissions on Facebook & Instagram.
Step 1: Fill out the form at the bottom of this page and send us your physical mailing address.
Step 2: We’ll mail you Burlington Bytes logo stickers to use for the promotion.
Step 3: Once you get those stickers, place said stickers in the most creative places you can think of. We’re hoping for some quintessential Vermontiness, like the back half of a Cow somewhere roaming around in a pasture but we’re also open to any outrageously, crude and wildly inappropriate but hilarious placements of stickers. Let’s just try and avoid being extremely offensive…
Step 5: Once we’re tagged, our expert panel of sticker placement engineers, who are experts mind you, will review your submissions and pick a winning photo. If you win, we’ll mail you your $250.00 Visa or you can come pick it up or whatever. I don’t know, this wasn’t my idea.
