This newest GO online competition Vote & Win was launched as part of GO’s mobile internet campaign ‘Join the Revolution’. The general public was encouraged to become more involved by voting for their favourite amongst the 4 characters featured in GO's mobile internet advertising – Althea, Arianne, Phil and Paul. The two characters who managed to clinch the most votes, along with other personalities, were earmarked to participate in a ‘reality show’ on a cabin cruiser.
Participation in the competition could not be simpler and anyone over 13 years of age interested in winning great prizes was eligible to take part. Prospective participants just needed to log on to Facebook, “like” the GO page and then follow some straightforward steps: complete the online form with valid details, share the competition on their Facebook profile, vote for their favourite character (one vote per person) and share the character they voted for on their personal profile via Facebook.
The competition ran from the 18th June to 7th July and attracted thousands of participants eager to vote for their favourite character based on their personal experience of GO’s mobile internet campaign that hit the market over the past weeks.
Claire Galea, Digital Marketing and Portals Manager at GO said: “The competition is in line with GO’s ongoing drive to engage our customers, target mobile internet customers and strengthen our brand preference. Furthermore we keep strengthening the interaction with our customers online, since the top voted mobile internet personalities selected through this competition will now be live on the GO Reality weekend show on One tv. Their tasks will all revolve around mobile internet and their experiences shared on the GO Facebook page that we promise will be very entertaining! So make sure you check out our page over the weekend to follow all the challenges that we have planned!”
