Creekside Inn Sweepstakes


The Creekside Inn is a charming boutique hotel in the beautiful Palo Alto, California. As search engines continue to place high importance on social signals and engagement, the hotel needed a way to increase their social media presence, fan engagement, and overall social reach, all the while boosting its website’s SEO. Milestone developed a Facebook sweepstake to grow its fan base, drive traffic to the website, and capture email leads. Facebook fans only need to enter their name and email address for a chance to win one of three vacation packages. By limiting the fields required to just the name and email address, the property was able to capture a great amount of email contacts.

The purpose of the sweepstakes is to:

  • Drive visibility to the hotel
  • Increase Facebook fan base through social sharing
  • Enhance user experience
  • Increase fan loyalty
  • Increase social referral traffic and conversion to their brand and hotel websites
  • Capture email leads

Budget: $750


  • Over 824 unique entries, capturing the same amount of email addresses
  • 2,484 new likes total – a 854% fan-base growth
