April Fools Shenanigans

April 1, 2010 by fhsteinbart


So today, April 1st, we set out to fool some of our online friends with a “Big Give-Away”  We had a lot of fun all day long and got to meet some of the folks we regularly interact with on the world wide web.

We started out the day by giving away a legitimate prize, a free stainless steel weldless ball valve for the first person to come in the store and ask for it.

Dave was the winner, and a good sport.  Thanks for participating, Dave!

A  little while after that we posted to give away 2 cases of overrun bottles and those went out the door within a half hour.  People started catching on to the fact that you can get free stuff when you pay attention to the Steinbart Facebook and Twitter.

Brian won the bottles, he frequents our store and has been following us on Twitter since we started our Social Media department.

The next step in the prak was to build the excitement for the grand prize give-away.  We told folks there would be a huge grand prize given away later in the day and that they needed to watch for the announcement.  We later announced that the secret code for unlocking the loot was the words “ninja assassin”  with that finally posted online it took a mere 35 minutes before someone came in the store shouting about ninja assassins.  It was pretty hilarious, you should have seen it.

Adam was our grand prize winner, he also won the pound of hops that we offered up yesterday.  His grand prize for shouting “ninja assassin”?  He won a T-Cork and a “happy April Fools Day” from the staff.  You can tell by the disappointed look on his face that our prank was a success.  After having our fun and Adam being such a good sport, we sent him on his way with a $30 gift card.

We have the best customers, you guys are the reason we are here and why we do what we do.  Thanks for your continued support.
