facebook likeIt’s a new year and a great time to start making plans for what's growing on in your gardens and landscapes this season. We recently closed out the 2012 holiday season with our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway which gave 12 lucky winners some great new tools for their upcoming planting and pruning tasks. We had a lot of fun, as did our friends on Facebook, and we thought it would be fun keep the season of giveaways going all year long.

52 Reasons to Like Corona Tools on Facebook

dual cut seriesThroughout the year, Corona will be posting weekly giveaways on our Facebook page.  The giveaway will be posted each Friday morning, where friends of Corona will have an opportunity to LIKE the giveaway and be entered to win. The winner will be selected the following Monday morning using random.org and if selected, they will receive that week’s item.

3/15/13 UPDATE: Due to Facebook’s Terms of Service, Corona must comply and post our weekly giveaways within a Facebook app. Facebook mandates that all giveaways must be run via apps so in compliance, we’ve selected one that was recommended by top digital marketing experts as being a reputable app for running our giveaways.

We understand that some are weary of using apps however the goal is to make it easy for people to enter and be notified of they’ve won. There are pluses and minuses to running promotions on these apps however we need to be compliant or run the risk our account and page being shut down.

We apologize for the change and any inconveniences the new format posses to our friends. And our goal is to get more Corona tools into the hands of avid gardeners. We appreciate the connections made with our friends and we’ll keep working at this to make the best possible experience for each of them. In the meantime, I invite you to give us your feedback and suggestions so that we can continue to make our weekly giveaways fun and as trouble-free as possible.
