Being the first year we've undertaken the Q-K-A Giveaway, we weren't quite sure what to expect. But as you and we can see, the response from our tourism and hospitality partners has been overwhelming!
Instead of our normal raffle this time of year, we wanted to do something that added more marketing value for our member businesses and increased the regional profile of Hammondsport & Keuka Lake as a destination, and with some lasting effects. We're thrilled to see that it appears we're able to do that through the generosity of the participating businesses.
We're hard-pressed to think of a sweepstakes or giveaway package that has offered so much for so little obligation. Literally all one needs to do is subscribe to our newsletter (any of the sign-up boxes on our site will do), and current subscribers are automatically entered to win! We're giving away one amazing summer-themed experience getaway and one unforgettable winter-themed escape package. Two chances to win!
With so much appeal to the Hammondsport and QKA market, we came to the decision that the only thing we were missing was more awareness about the region and specifically the amazing offerings of our partners. And so the decision was made to embark on a pure marketing campaign in an effort to aggressively gain subscribers to our newsletter (which gateways nicely to our active social media channels) to signal boost our messaging farther and wider!
It's not a fundraiser; it's a follower-raiser! We're aiming to multiply our newsletter subscribers, amplify our social media engagement, and reach more wonderful people to tell them our story! Hammondsport is a long-term project and we're looking to create long-term connections with our visitors.
Please peruse the prize packages and visit the sweepstakes page for the official rules and more details. Special thanks to all of our generous partners below! Stay tuned (and subscribe!) for more details about each of them and what they've contributed to the sweepstakes!
