“Have you ever lost your cell phone?” is the question Motorola is asking its fans in a contest to win one of 5 of their CLIQ smartphones. To enter the contest, here’s what Motorola is asking fans to do:
“Tell us your craziest story about how it happened and enter to win a new Motorola CLIQ with MOTOBLUR! We’re giving away 5 phones and will also feature some of the creative stories on our Facebook page…”
As per Facebook’s promotion rules, users do not have to become fans to enter the contest.
While the contest page itself is hosted off of Facebook and on Motorola’s website, we couldn’t find the promotion after a quick check around motorola.com; and, the page is titled “Facebook Contest Phone Giveaway.” So this seems to be an exclusive offer for Facebook users. As well as filling out contact information, entrants must tell the “craziest thing that has happened to your phone” in less than 1000 characters.
Other promotions that Motorola has run this month include their “12 Days of CLIQmas” which they promoted on their Facebook Page but which was run on Twitter, and another giveaway of NFL tickets to a Cincinnati versus Detroit game (which didn’t get much of a response from Motorola’s fans).
Motorola has also been running ads lately to get people to their fan Page, and has gained 97,165 fans since December 18.
