BALTIMORE, Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Urbanite Magazine and listener-supported WTMD (89.7 FM) have teamed with SocialToaster to promote the Great Baltimore Check-In. The Check-In, a social networking game that helps players learn more about Baltimore, runs through September 30. Anyone with a mobile device can play.

Social marketing tool SocialToaster lets Urbanite and WTMD easily spread the word about the Check-In through multiple social networks thanks to supporters of the game, called Ambassadors. By signing up to be a Check-In Ambassador, new and existing players can share news about the Check-In – and score points toward prizes.

"SocialToaster amplifies our presence in social media in a very important way," says Urbanite publisher Tracy Ward. "We know that we find more players each time we toast. It has been an important component of our marketing plan."

Additionally, a drawing will be held exclusively for Check-In Ambassadors on Friday, August 5. The prize? A $50 gift certificate to Talara Restaurant and Wine Bar in Harbor East. Also on Friday, a Flash Event will take place at 7 p.m. in Baltimore's Belvedere Square, where 10 players could win an author-signed copy of Dishing Up Maryland.

"We're excited to have the opportunity to work on such a cutting-edge project with Urbanite and WTMD," says SocialToaster creator Brian Razzaque. "We're especially pleased to help people realize all of the great things happening here in Baltimore."
