OAKLAND, Calif., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- No one likes the idea of having to call a plumber. In an effort to help change the minds of Americans, the makers of Liquid-Plumr® products are bringing their latest award-winning ad campaign to life by sending hunky plumbers to knock on five lucky winners' doors with offers to help with household problems — ranging from clearing a backed-up drain to climbing up on a ladder to clean a clogged gutter — and all with the promise of adding a little fun while getting the job done.
The Liquid-Plumr® House Call Sweepstakes will award weekly grand prize winners with $1,000 in prize money, four hours of household project service from a vetted, qualified partner and a visit by two Liquid-Plumr hunky Plumrs. The five grand prize winners will be announced every Sunday, with daily prizes also being awarded. Consumers can enter the sweepstakes at Facebook.com/LiquidPlumr from April 15 - May 20, 2013.
"We believe many women have confidently embraced the opportunity take on any job – in or out of the house. However, we realize that something like a clogged drain, is not glamorous and most of us tend to delay tackling the problem. That's why we're bringing a little entertainment and escapism to make the most out of the 'gross,' " said Jennifer McKnight, Liquid-Plumr brand manager. "Enter the Liquid-Plumr House Call Sweepstakes. Winners will enjoy the best of both worlds – some help to stay on top of her project list and some fun and fantasy while she gets the job done."
To support the sweepstakes, the makers of Liquid-Plumr® are employing an integrated marketing campaign. The portfolio-focused campaign includes a significant focus on digital and social mediums to connect with consumers in addition to print advertising and consumer promotions.
