Frankenstein(’s Monster)’s Cruise Ship Getaway Sweepstakes

I’m Frankenstein’s monster and I have a few things to say about running sweepstakes. First of all, ignore the movies you’ve seen about me—I’m smart and can speak 4 languages. One of them is social media.

Here’s an idea for a marketing campaign this Hallow’s Eve: a Cruise Ship Getaway!

Let’s say your potential customers are trying to get away from some not so great things they did back home—I don’t know, maybe they slapped a guy’s brother around. Maybe they’re trying to escape the existential dread and loneliness that comes with being the only sentient being of their kind! Ha, ha! Just me?

Anyway, what better way to give them that escape they’re looking for than by giving them a chance to win a week-long vacation on a cruise?

That’s why they should enter my getaway sweepstakes, which was super easy to create. All I did was purchase a cruise ship package, created a sweepstakes page for it and started spreading the word on social media. Voilà! 

If your winner is anything like me, they’ll love mingling with other horrifying singles and tanning up that pale-green skin on the poop deck.

P.S. It’s okay to just call me Frankenstein. I really don’t mind it.

The Headless Horseman’s 50% Off Full Face Makeover Coupon Offer

I may be a demonic murderer, but I still care about my complexion and whether or not my eyes have that wow! affect on my victims. Sometimes I feel like people don’t even notice me or the work I put into my look—it’s like, hello! My pumpkin is up here.

That’s why I’m partnering with my local beauty store to offer a coupon for a full face makeover. I don’t make a ton of money riding around town and marking people for death by calling out their names all spooky-like, so I totally get it—not everyone can afford the full price of a full face makeover all the time.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still evil—it’s just that I totally get the confidence boost of a makeover and want to share that opportunity with others. So we’ve created a coupon campaign in Woobox (it’s easier than murdering a townsman!), and have been spreading the word through social media.

To make the deal even sweeter for my local beauty shop, we’re encouraging customers to share about us on social media and signing up for our email newsletter to get their paws on the coupon gold.

A lot of people don’t know this about me, but I’ve been on a health kick lately, and part of my going organic journey is taking care of my beautiful pearly vhites so I can keep drinking your blood vell into my 100s.
