Valentine’s-Themed Sweepstakes


With prizes like a date-night giveaway or a romantic weekend getaway, a sweepstakes can be a perfect fit for the Valentine’s season. Sweeps are a quick, easy way to grow your database and engage a large audience. Plus, this holiday targets some timely advertiser’s (jewelers, florists, specialty retail) you may not usually spend with the rest of the year.

Valentine’s-Themed Ballot

The season of Valentine’s Day always brings a boost the bridal industry. Many advertisers are looking for a creative way to highlight their products or services, identify qualified leads, and learn about their consumers. A voting ballot can be the perfect option.

WMEE-FM pitched a clever “Favorite Wedding Ring” ballot to their sponsor – a local jeweler interested in letting people know about their engagement and wedding ring specials. The jeweler was able to gather a list of hundreds of qualified leads to email about their upcoming Bridal Extravaganza.
