The campaign features a Text to Win contest giving away $100 gift cards to retailers such as iTunes and Abercrombie (see www.SATFacebook.com). The SATPG Facebook page will give South Florida middle and high school students valuable information such as links to financial aid sites, important details about upcoming SAT tests, background on SATPG coaches, student success stories, inspirational videos and quotes, and more.
“We know that South Florida students, just like most middle school and high school students across the country, are online a lot, and they are on Facebook and Twitter,” said SAT Preparation Group CEO Steve Kirshenbaum, Parkland, FL. “We decided that SAT Preparation Group needs to have an online presence on Facebook and Twitter also, to reach our core audience of 12-18-year olds. When our students have needs, we listen to them. This social media presence complements our newly redesigned website (www.PrepSATTest.com) and our new blog.”
Added SATPG’s head of Social Media, Celia Barranon, “We are very excited about our Facebook page (www.SATFacebook.com) and what a great avenue it is for getting important, useful information out to students and parents in our area of Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade counties. We’re committed to keeping it fresh and full of interesting, valuable content so that we can stay connected with SATPG students and continue to support their success. The same goes for our Twitter feeds. Right now we are running a Text to Win contest: South Florida students can text SATPG 100 to 46786 and be entered to win a $100 gift card of their choice: Gas Card, Visa Gift Card, iTunes or Abercrombie. Parents are enjoying these new ways to be involved also, and they like the convenience of following the Facebook updates and Tweets.
