#Hashtag Contest Case Study

Client Testimonials

From concept to execution, working with Contest Factory on the Goslings Rum ‘Selfie Yourself to Bermuda’ campaign was a pleasure. The team was proactive, provided deliverables on time, had extensive knowledge of what works for UGC and a deep understanding of contest & sweepstakes law. Working closely with our web development manger in the UK, they launched the contest site on our new platform without a hitch. Their willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty (without extra charges) was invaluable in helping us reach our goals for this campaign.
