Recently, Verizon launched a promotion in Pennsylvania where they're giving five families a chance to win a FiOS home makeover. And before you mention it, no not those Five Families; I know I'm the Consiglieri at crayon, but Verizon has a reputation to keep.
This is all part of a show called My Home 2.0 and it's part of Verizon's effort to give families' homes an amazing technology update, including Verizon's FiOS service. What an amazing opportunity! All you have to do if you live in the area is submit an audition video on the My Home 2.0 site.
My friends and former colleagues C.C. Chapman and Steve Coulson of The Advance Guard are in charge of this campaign and you can tell it's got their creativity behind it. The social media news release page is nicely done, plus there are all sorts of social media sites attached to it. My favorite has to be the Facebook group, as it centralizes the experiences, photos and videos.
Ugh. What I wouldn't give for FiOS TV and Internet service. But my area isn't even wired yet, and this contest is only for the Pittsburgh & Philadelphia areas. Best of luck to all who audition!
