First County Bank Uses Social Media and Apple iPad 3 to Promote Community Awareness

First County Bank recently announced the launch of its 2012 iPad 3 Sweepstakes offering the public an unbeatable opportunity to experience online community banking.  The social media based promotion combines a chance to win an Apple iPad 3 through the viral-marketing power of Facebook and Twitter.  This year one lucky winner will receive an Apple iPad 3.

“Last spring, our Amazon Kindle campaign was such a success we wanted to continue the fun,” said Karen Kelly, chief marketing officer for First County Bank.

The iPad 3 sweepstakes started on Sept. 17, 2012 and ends at 9 a.m. on Oct. 31, 2012.  It is currently promoted on the company’s Website,, on in-branch flyers and on social media sites.   More details on the sweepstakes can be found at

A strong social media presence paired with highly desirable prizes is a great way to reach new customers for the bank.  “Social media is a positive way we can connect with customers and the public so they can learn about community events, activities, bank and foundation news,” explained Kelly.  “First County Bank is excited about all the ways it gives back to the community via First County Bank Foundation grants and support of community organizations.  Our Facebook page is a showcase of how the bank as well as other local organizations, individuals and small businesses give back and help Fairfield County thrive.  By generating more fans, the bank is building an online community for all.”
