Win a polar bear from black+blum
Design duo black+blum create products for the home and office, combining ruthless practicality with a mischievous and intellectually-satisfying design aesthetic. Their latest product is is a polar bear ice tray who can live in your freezer called brrrrr… Not only does it take the fuss out of making ice cubes, it also stops them picking up taste and odours of other items in your freezer. How cool is that?
To tie in with today’s International Polar Bear Day, a competition to win a brrrrr… was announced via the black+blum Facebook page.
Boombox created a bespoke Facebook competition page tab that included an online form for entrants to add their name, email address and an option to sign up for black+blum newsletters.
The competition is free to enter, just visit the black+blum Facebook page using a computer (not a mobile or tablet) and click on the ‘Win a polar bear!’ tab under their cover image. The closing date is the 8th March. After which time we’ll send all the entrants names onto black+blum so they can choose a winner.
The ice tray is so new that it’s not even on the black+blum website yet (they’re expecting in the next month) but you can see their current product line-up here.

12 Days of Christmas
Neal’s Yard Remedies is an award-winning high street retailer, specialising in organic health and beauty products.
Boombox has worked together with their fantastic Social Media Manager on the NYR ‘12 Days of Christmas’ Facebook campaign, which launched today.
Fans of the organic brand (and there are thousands of them) can enter a daily prize draw to win an organic gift set via a Facebook page tab created and managed by Boombox. The prize changes each day, promoting the NYR range of organic gift sets, whilst a ‘next day’ teaser encourages fans to keep returning to the Facebook page.
The competition runs until the 14th December with Boombox providing daily page tab updates. Boombox also sends the latest data on to the NYR each morning so they can pick a lucky winner.
UK residents can enter the 12 Days of Christmas competition via the NYR Facebook Page (just ensure you use a computer rather than a mobile or tablet when clicking on the link as Facebook page tabs are not currently supported on mobile devices).
If you want to ‘give the gift of organic’ this year, then check out the Neal’s Yard Remedies website here. You can also follow NYR on Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
Ducati UK Facebook competition
Boombox is currently managing a Facebook competition on behalf of motorcycle manufacturer Ducati UK. The competition aims to help raise awareness of the UK’s offical Ride to Work Day which takes place on the 18th June, whilst also grow and engage the Ducati UK Facebook community.
Boombox created a bespoke Facebook page tab that allows Ducati owners to upload a picture of the motorcyle that they will ‘Ride to Work’ with photos posted on their Facebook page every few days. Entrants are encouraged to comment on their photos which in turn helps spread awareness of the campaign and creates conversations between fans and the page.
Three winners will be chosen by Tim Maccabee, Managing Director of Ducati UK, with some great prizes up for grabs.
Boombox helped create and run the recent ‘Bee Lovely’ social campaign for organic beauty brand Neal’s Yard Remedies. Last weekend I visited the Neal’s Yard Remedies store in the King’s Road to see the ‘Bee Lovely’ photography competition winners view their photos on canvas for the first time.
Winners and runners up included Tiegan Neary, Glenn Iverson and Clark Mortin. Fergus Gill (Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2010) had assisted Neal’s Yard Remedies with the judging also came along and joined in the celebrations.
The photography competition was launched via the Neal’s Yard Remedies Facebook page and followed the launch of a new hand cream product on Facebook back in July.
Made with honey, the Bee Lovely Hand Cream was a limited edition product. It seemed a perfect fit for Neal’s Yard Remedies, who specialise in natural, organic skincare products. The hand cream was available exclusively to fans of Neal’s Yard Remedies Facebook page for a month before making its way in stores across the UK.
£1 from every tube sold went to Buglife, Landlife and Pesticide Action Network UK, to support their bee-friendly initiatives. An online petition to help save UK bees from harmful pesticides was also promoted within the campaign http://www.nealsyardremedies.com/bee-lovely-petition.
Boombox created a ‘Bee Lovely’ iFrame tab for the Neal’s Yard Remedies Facebook page, which included several pages of various bee-friendly information and a link to purchase the hand cream online. Three sets of Facebook ads were created to run throughout the campaign with a landing page set-up to help convert first time visitors ‘Like’ the page, subsequently receiving updates about the brand in their news feeds.
Boombox also ran the online photography competition, setting up a form to run on the Neal’s Yard Remedies Facebook page and updating the Bee Lovely photo albums. There were over 450 fantastic photos submitted, with the competition sparking lots of conversations between page fans.
