Home & Garden Sweepstakes Featured in March & April

By Mark Maier, Idaho State Journal Advertising Director

March 23rd through April 9th, the Idaho State Journal, Journal Extra, our Facebook Page, and the website will feature a Home & Garden Sweepstakes. This is a great opportunity for businesses to feature the latest in Home & Garden products and services for Exterior to Interior and Décor to Outdoor and place gift certificates in the hands of winners from contests.

The Sweepstakes will feature a $1,000 grand prize Palmer Home Furnishings shopping spree as well as each individual merchant providing at least a $25.00 certificate to add to the Grand Prize package. Each business will give away a separate $25.00 certificate to a Sweepstakes entrant as well.

A separate $1,000 shopping spree will be given to the winner of our Home & Garden photo submission contest. We are asking entrants to pick an area of their yard or home that could benefit from the $1,000 Palmer Home Furnishings spree that they can choose either inside or outside furniture and accessories plus have a catalog to order from. Entrants can submit photos from March 23rd to April 1st, voting runs April 1st at 10am through April 9th at 10am.

For Home & Garden businesses, the promotional packages start at just $180 per month. Each business that participates will get an opted-in database of entrants for internal marketing along with well more than double the value in advertising in March and April.

Contact your Account Manager or me at the Idaho State Journal to get involved, my direct line is (208) 239-3151 and we will get you all the details and get you set up to have fun with our Home and Garden Sweepstakes.
