Facebook 2000 Fan Give-Away! | Altoona, WI Photographer

I know this has been a while coming and I promised it months ago, but with Summer comes my busiest time of year. Alas, I made a promise and I intend to keep it. I am so extremely excited to announce my 2000 Fan Give-Away, and even more excited that I now have 2000 fans. It never ceases to amaze me the sheer number of people out there who don’t even know me, and support me. Better yet, is finding a random person who knows who I am before I even say my name. Talk about humbling!

None of this would be possible without you guys!

Not to take this Give-Away into sad or negative territory either, but I have to tell you guys that this will be the last give-away Violet Photography & Design will be hosting. The reasons are many, but one of the main reasons is because I want my fans on my page because they genuinely LOVE my work, and not because they are looking for a freebie. This means there will be no more Tuesday Trivia’s, no more so many thousand fan give-aways, no more Cutest Kiddo Contests. This will be your very last opportunity to take advantage of a Give-Away with Violet Photography & Design. So, if you were hoping for a free session, this is your chance. I hope the fans I do have stay because they love my work and they want to support me. I love having you all. You’re a very integral part of my business and you are important. You is kind. You is smart. You is important.:)

This Give-Away has been a while in the making. I started planning in January of this year, digging up vendors and planning how it would all go down, and I am happy and excited with the final outcome. I am hoping you will be as well.

The rules for this Give-Away are as follows:

1. You must “like” Violet Photography & Design as your first entry.
2. You must comment on this blog post stating that you would like to be entered into the contest, this counts as an entry.
3. If you share the announcement post on Facebook to your Facebook wall, and comment on the status that you have done so, you will receive one additional entry.  ***These will be verified!***
4. If you “like” the pages of the participating vendors on Facebook, you will receive an additional entry for each page you “like.”
(It is not REQUIRED that you like these pages, but your odds of winning will be higher if you do. Plus, who doesn’t want to support someone who is willing to give you Freebies? )

The last surprise I have in store for you is an exciting one for me. I spend a lot of time thanking you all for being a part of the excitement that is my business. While I will be doing away with giveaways, I am still going to honor loyalty. I have not worked out the details whether it will be at random or once a year, but I will still be honoring a loyal fan who has been with me for a long time, and who remains active with me. While I prepared you all for this give-away, I did not tell you I would be honoring a loyal fan. When I announced the give-away, I went back to the very beginning of my business and everyone who commented on my photos, status updates, etc. from the very beginning of time was entered into the contest for as many comments as they made. If you commented 30 times, you got 30 entries. The winner of this random drawing is Roxanne MacNicol. Roxanne, THANK YOU. I don’t even know you, but you have supported from the beginning, but more than that, you’ve written me some heartfelt messages, and you have been involved for a very long time. Your support means the world to me. To show how much it means, I am extending you a Complimentary 1 hour session, 5 of your favorite images from that session on CD fully edited, 1-11×14 print, 1-8×10, 5×7, and set of 8 wallets of one pose. This prize does not even come close to telling you how appreciative I am of your support. I hope you find a way to use the session.

Thank you to all the rest of you who continue to support, comment, refer my business, and for just BEING there. You guys are so darn wonderful. Keep supporting, because you can be the next “loyalty” winner! With all that said, let’s get this 2000 fan celebration started, shall we! I’m excited about 2000, and even more excited to see what the next milestone will bring me. Thank you guys. <3
