SAN DIEGO, Calif. (November 16, 2009)—Brickfish, The Social Media SolutionTM, and The Limited, an iconic fashion retailer, have teamed up for its “Fabulous Pet Names” viral marketing program. The program aims to deepen engagement between The Limited and its consumers, and it coincides with the launch of a new line of pet sweaters. The program, located at http://www.thelimited.com/fabulouspetnames, asks entrants to submit pictures of their pets along with the stories behind their names.
“By partnering with Brickfish for the ‘Fabulous Pet Names’ program, we have the opportunity to interact and engage with our consumers on a whole new level,” said Brian Seewald, Director of eCommerce at The Limited. “We are excited to have our consumers share with us their pet naming stories; it is another great way for us to engage with them while celebrating our love of animals. We are huge animal lovers, which is why we will also be making a special donation of $5,000 to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) in conjunction with the launch of this program.”
The “Fabulous Pet Names” program enables participants to submit their own unique pet photos and naming stories and share them on their social networking sites.
