Spooky season is upon us, and we’re thrilled to invite you to be part of our NEW Halloween Promotion at the Pelican Rapids Press!

Introducing Skeleton Pete! 

Everyone’s favorite Pelican is getting ready for Halloween to increase your business visibility and engage customers in a fun and interactive way by giving them a chance to win great prizes!

This promotion will run throughout the month of October and offers multiple ways for your business to benefit. 

Here’s the breakdown:

Stamp Cards: 

We will provide stamp cards for you to hand out to customers. Customers can then collect stamps by visiting each participating business, earning them an entry in a drawing for exciting prizes! Stamp cards can then be turned in at your or another participating business and picked up by us at the end of the promotion.

Posters of Skeleton Pete:

We will bring a poster featuring Skeleton Pete to your business the day before the promotion starts. Customers who take a selfie with “Skeleton Pete” and tag The Press and #SkeletonPete on Facebook or Instagram will receive a bonus entry for each photo they post. The Press will share these images in our Facebook and Instagram Stories, tagging the business featured in the photo. This will not only promote the promotion itself, but also give you more exposure across social media!

Bonus Hidden Poster: 

Each week, we will hide a poster somewhere in town. The first person to find it, take a selfie, and tag The Press and #SkeletonPete will receive 5 entries! This adds an element of excitement and helps to build momentum.

Your Benefits:

  • Prime Print Ad Placement in The Press:
    • We will advertise this promotion with color ads throughout the entire month of October
  • Visibility boosting across Facebook and Instagram:
    • Connect with our more than 4.7k followers multiple times each week as we promote this campaign across our social channels
  • Customer Engagement:
