As we embarked on the Summer of 2018, we welcomed the onset of the sun. It meant plenty of chances to get outside and enjoy riding a Hoverboard. Which is why in August, we held a competition on our Facebook page for someone to win a ZIMX Swegway Hoverboard.
The competition details
It was an easy one. In order to give the public and our loyal Facebook followers the chance to get their hands on a free hoverboard, all they had to do was enter our competition and to let us know what most awesome Summer activity they would do if they won a ZIMX Hoverboard in the comments section, like the page and tag someone in their squad who’d love to join in the fun.
We ran the competition for just under a month, finishing on the end of August. We had hundreds and hundreds of comments, and reached nearly 50 thousand people, who also made loads of shares, likes and page likes. For us this was very good as we got to showcase the UK’s number one hoverboard company to more people across the country.
We received comment after comment and loved reading the reasons why people were entering. Some wanted a birthday present for a family member. Some just wanted an awesome hoverboard (who could blame them?). We wish we could give away lots more (but then we wouldn’t be the best business, would we?) as we do want to keep our ukbigbuy family happy!
The winner revealed
As it happened, only one person could win. And that person was Jane Hart. We gave her a massive congratulations for taking part and for winning the prize. It was even luckier for Jane’s daughter, who got the prize via her kind-hearted mum.
On Facebook, Jane said “Can’t thank you guys enough you have brought so much happiness to my daughter might have to contact you about the attachment to turn it into the cart for her as well.”
Thank you, Jane, for taking part! And we hope your daughter enjoys the ZIMX Hoverboard and has loads of fun on it.
If you want to see some pictures of the hoverboards, the grand unveiling, and the lucky winner’s recipient beaming smile and a big hand drawn "Thank you so much" poster, which melted our hearts in our office. Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page. Jane was kind enough to provide us with some pictures.
More competitions to come
It just goes to show that it can happen to anyone. In fact, it could happen to someone again soon. Due to the popularity of the competition, we will be holding more in the future, giving more people the chance to get their hands on a unique ZIMX Hoverboard. Which model and colour? Well, you’ll just have to find out.
