Support local – and win, with LIFT VIPs!

At LIFT we’re encouraging you to use your social media to help support local businesses. If you post with LIFT members (below) you can win prizes via our #LIFTVIP promotion. Our July-September challenge is an easy way for you to get in the habit of supporting local businesses on Vancouver Island via your social media. Here’s how:

  1. Find local LIFT VIPs from the list – or ask your business friends if they’re members (we’re growing quickly, which means they may not yet be on our list).
  2. To boost local businesses, post selfies with LIFT VIPs to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or your social media of choice.
  3. To win prizes and boost local, be sure to post to Instagram.
  4. Include the #LIFTVIP tag in your posts so we can find you. Add a few words about your favourite LIFT VIP businesses.

That’s it! You’re in to win prizes from Atlas Café, Bosley’s (Courtenay), Gladstone Brewing, The Waverley Hotel, Toscano’s Mediterranean Grill, Sure Copy Courtenay, Royston Roasting, and My Tech Guys.

Enter daily! We’re drawing winners in June, and weekly in July, August, and September. Every post is your way to support local business in our communities.

NOTE: If you’re ready to see your business featured in the #LIFTVIP promotion, please contact HPM now.
