Are you a “home hacks” guru? Do you specialize in DIY-projects around your home, and have time or money saving tips you think would be useful to others? Then TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s newest social media contest is for you!
Beginning on Monday, July 17, and running through Sunday, August 13, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® will run a national social media contest centered on the idea of the best “Home Hacks”. The winner of the contest will be announced via social media on Wednesday, August 16.
Just what exactly qualifies as a home hack? It’s anything you do around your home that helps to save either time or money while maintaining your living space. Anything from using aluminum foil in place of dryer sheets to easily removing permanent marker from the wall can be considered a home hack – simple solutions that make life a little easier in your home.
“Summer is the season of home improvement, so we want to see the best ‘home hacks’ being used to save time, money, and energy while maintaining their home,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Media Relations Specialist Jessy Herman. “Through social media, we engage with people who have recently moved or plan on moving in the future, and we hope this type of contest can provide a way for our social community to share their tips and tricks, and maybe even discover new ideas!”
Participants are asked to tag their home hack project with the hashtag #TMTHomeHacks, which will ensure submissions are entered into our contest. We will provide a platform for our audience to vote and determine which home hack they think is the top idea, with voting being limited to one vote per Facebook user and IP address per day. We will enable a CAPTCHA each time someone votes, assuring people the voting process is fair and honest.
“We are extremely excited to see what creative, yet simple ideas people can come up with,” Herman said. “With the voting system determining the outcome of the contest, we are thrilled to see how people come together to determine who the winners will be.”
The best home hacks will be awarded nicely, as we have some outstanding prizes to align with the entire theme of the contest:
-1st Place: $1,500 to Lowe’s Home Improvement
-2nd Place: $1,000 to Lowe’s Home Improvement
-3rd Place: $500 to Lowe’s Home Improvement
The first 10 people to enter the contest – regardless of where they finish in the voting process – will be awarded $20 gift cards to Lowe’s as well. You can never have enough money going toward your home, and a gift card to Lowe’s is a great way to finish up any projects you are working on as the summer wraps up.
We hope to see everyone submit some of their own tips and tricks for saving money around the house, and we hope people can have fun with this idea while learning a thing or two! To learn more, stay tuned to our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Facebook page for details.
