3 Ideas to Color Your Paint Advertisers Happy

Photo/Video Contests

This ‘Scared of Santa’ photo contest from KFIN-FM was sponsored by a local paint company. They provided a prize of a one-room free interior painting and a $100 gift card to the user with the most photo votes. The promotion drew the attention of a very targeted audience and, with an opt-in for the advertiser and two smart lead-generation questions, the advertiser was able to find potential customers.
