Immix will continue to run more sweepstakes for subscribers.

Lessons learned
Immix subscribers like having a chance to win cool prizes, especially to popular events happening in their immediate area.

Surprise finding
In a short amount of time a lot of subscribers texted in. Imagine if the campaign had run for longer?

Strategy quote
“No wireless carrier in the area offers tickets to local events, so by working with Ping Mobile, we were able to provide this exclusively to our subscriber base,” said Tara Dove, marketing and social media coordinator at Immix Wireless. "More and more, subscribers are participating in text-to-win campaigns, which are a great tool for us as a wireless provider."
