V- CAMPAIGN For a Travel Agency/Airline Users travel to beautiful places and check-in
V- CAMPAIGN For a Travel Agency/Airline Users take a photo ... check-in on ... and upload thethrough Instagram… Foursquare... photo through Foursquare
V- CAMPAIGN For a Travel Agency/Airline The Travel Agency can pick one overall winner with the “Best Photo.” Metrics could be number of likes, or simply attractiveness of the photo. Winner receives a gift card or free trip.
V- CAMPAIGN For a Travel Agency/Airline In addition, users can create Travel Pinboards on Pinterest. The board with the most overall re-pins could win a smaller prize (because this does not involve checking in).
V- CAMPAIGN For a Travel Agency/Airline If Pinterest could pull all Foursquare pictures (and know that the user checked in at a certain location), Pinterest pinboards could be made with the Instagram photos and the contest could be based on the best pinboard made of Instagram photos. This would create a streamlined process: users could easily upload the Instagram photo on Foursquare when they check-in, and it would automatically upload to their contest pinboard. In the process, the check-in information would be maintained, to ensure that users are checking in before they can upload a photo/board to be entered in the contest.
CONCLUSIONInstagram, Pinterest, and Foursquare are all in the growth stageThe opportunities to mash up these applications for marketing purposes are vast
