Yamaha launches Facebook Photo Contest - Win 5,000!

Yamaha Motor Canada Ltd. is making a splash into social media. First, they launched their snowmobile and motorcycle blogs back in 2007, enabled viewers to follow them in real time on Twitter this summer, and now they’re making a push on the most infamous platform of all—Facebook. To generate excitement about their Facebook page, they’ve launched a photo contest with a grand prize of a $5,000 Yamaha Shopping Spree.

“People want to talk about Yamaha and it has motivated to enter social media,” says Yamaha Motor Canada’s Marketing Manager, Tim Kennedy. “We want to stay connected with consumers as well, and in a way that engages conversation from both sides. To help kick things off with our Facebook page, we’re inviting people to become fans, upload a creative photo of them and their Yamaha and they could win $5,000 to spend on anything found on Yamaha-motor.ca. As a bonus, photos that really stand out, may even be selected for use in future Yamaha ads!”

The URL is - www.facebook.com/YamahaMotorCanada - and you’ll find more than a bag full of cash to win. Yamaha says their fan list is growing daily, and people from not only Canada, but the world, are constantly uploading videos, photos, and cool links relating to Yamaha and the motorsports industry.

“We really want to create a hub for not just Yamaha owners, but anyone who wants to share tales from the track or trail, find the best roads to ride, or meet new people who share the same passion for recreational motorsports,” adds Kennedy.

If you haven’t done so already, visit - www.facebook.com/YamahaMotorCanada - become a fan, sign up for the “This is my Yamaha” contest and enjoy some good chatter with fellow riders. You may even end up in a Yamaha ad!
