We want you to “Like” us!

BatesRewards members that “Like” us on Facebook, can win one of 10 - $50 Bates gift cards

I have made somewhat of an attempt to educate myself on social media. Over the last two and a half years I have mostly worked at our Twitter presence. That has been pretty successful. We currently have about 59,000 followers, making us the most followed gardening site on Twitter. That’s great, but I have failed to put forth much effort into Facebook. A lot of people use Twitter; nearly everyone uses Facebook.

My daughter Sara does most of the Facebook administration. We were brainstorming as to how we might more effectively communicate with our BatesRewards members. What we came up with is this: If you’re already a BatesRewards member, simply “Like” us on Facebook and you’re automatically entered to win one of ten (10) $50 Bates Gift Cards. We will announce the winners on Facebook Friday, April 15.

If you're a BatesRewards member and already “Like” us on Facebook, you’re already entered. If you're not a BatesRewards member, come in and sign up at the checkout, it's free! The successful entrants will be drawn from the list of friends on Facebook that are also BatesRewards members. Easy. We have “ramped-up” our content on Facebook, and soon will integrate with our Twitter “timeline” feed. Login to Facebook and go to our Fan page through the “Facebook” icon on our “home” page. “Like” us, it could get you $50 to spend on anything we sell or service we offer.

Speaking of services, I want to give you a quick reminder that we now have bulk materials delivery service available. Whether you need EarthMix Premium Topsoil Blend, Mushroom Compost, Pine Fines Soil Conditioner or a custom soil blend of your choosing, any of these materials can be delivered by dump truck to your home or office. The next available delivery date is Monday April 11th. Delivery slots are filling fast, so don’t delay…the time is now!

The annuals are now in full bloom along with everything for your garden; hanging baskets galore as well as monster-sized Boston Ferns. Tennessee Cedar Raised Beds are available with an EarthMix special…all spring. Whataya waiting for? We look forward to seeing you this weekend!

Spring is in the air,
