We are super excited to announce our 2013 social media photo contest, “B&B Loves Summertime in Virginia.”

B&B Loves Summertime in Virginia

Inspired by the creative energy of our fellow Virginians, we are launching this social media contest to celebrate our home state and remind people about the power of print.

“I’m a native Virginian, and with summertime upon us, I always feel nostalgic for those memories that shaped me as a person, husband, father, and businessman,” reminisces B&B President Michael Bland. “While digital photographs are quick and easy to share with friends and family on social networking sites, it’s the printed photographs that really tend to stick with us and capture our memories.”

While we can’t wait for summer begin, we also want to use this contest to remind people of the power of print. – By hosting a social media contest and cross-promoting through various digital and analog channels, we are demonstrating that print is more powerful when integrated with digital communications.  We introduced the contest with a mobile-optimized direct mail piece, and will continue  to send reminder updates via email and social media through our NimbleBridge division.
