To generate excitement around the new fall bowling league program, LoSasso Advertising, a Chicago interactive marketing agency

for Brunswick. The online presence included sites Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. These online efforts were further supported in bowling centers with point-of-sale materials as well as pre-launch promotion sent through Brunswick’s Bonus Zone email marketing database.
The sweepstakes registration included cross promotion with Brunswick’s Bonus Zone e-mail coupon program, which resulted in 6,550 new opt-ins. An online YouTube Wii-a-Day video submission contest was also created to leverage the excitement and strong social interaction being generated around the sweepstakes.
Within 60 days the program generated 12,000 Facebook fans, 6,050 direct coupon downloads for immediate bowling discounts, and 6,000 requests for more information on Brunswick’s Wii bowling clubs.
