VIP Experience: Yokohama and the Yankees

Posted on June 4, 2014

Thanks to Yokohama Tire Corp.'s “VIP Experience” sweepstakes promotion, one lucky fan and three guests will have the opportunity to head to the Big Apple to catch a New York Yankees game -- and much more -- via the online and text-messaging contest that runs now through June 30.

“The grand prize winner and three guests will get to enjoy the game from Field Level MVP seats, watch the New York Yankees’ batting practice, from the field in a designated area behind home plate and receive a limited-edition New York Yankees gift bag,” says Alan Holtschneider, Yokohama's senior manager of marketing communications. The prize package includes roundtrip airfare to New York and hotel accommodations for the winner and three guests.

To enter, fans can either:

* text YTC2WIN to 89269 or

* go online at Yankees.com/YTCVIP.

A winner will be randomly selected on July 2. The contest is open to all residents of the United States 18 years of age or older. Contest rules at: http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/sweepstakes/y2014/nyy/yokohama_rules.jsp

As part of its sponsorship with the Yankees, Yokohama receives a permanent sign on the Stadium’s bleacher wall in left field. Yokohama’s 2014 sports sponsorship roster also includes Major League Baseball’s Cincinnati Reds and Los Angeles Angels; the National Basketball Association’s Los Angeles Clippers; and the National Football League’s Baltimore Ravens and Indianapolis Colts.

You’ve Got Email: It’s Still the Way to Go to Market, Digitally Speaking

Remember email? Sometimes in the communication that is texting, tweeting or ‘Snapchatting,’ email is taken for granted. Facebook is great for sharing your thoughts and feelings to everyone you have friended, but email is more targeted, especially when used for business. You might say it is even more personal than Facebook because it is designed for interaction between two people or among a small group of people.
