Sweepstakes for Verizon’s Visual 411 All-in-One App Encourages Site Visits While Opening the Door to Potential Prizes

Apps are all over the place, right?  But how many apps give you the chance to win $2,500, as well as other cash prizes, just for checking it out and answering the simplest of questions?

From now until Jan. 19, 2014, Verizon’s Visual 411 contest registration site at vz411.com will be the place to go for all of you lottery-playing, chance-taking, card-sharking customers who just love the opportunity to win…and potentially, win big.

Consumers can enter the sweepstakes by visiting the official registration site online to answer a daily question about the Visual 411 business search app.  Answers, right or wrong, will result in a qualified entry, and customers can visit the site each day to provide another answer and receive a new entry.  Consumers are limited to one entry per day, though there is no limit to using the service.  Conceivably, that could mean as many as 68 entries! A random drawing will be held on or about January 21.  Eligible entrants will have the opportunity to win $2,500 cash as the grand prize. Four $250 cash prizes and eight $25 cash prizes will also be awarded.

So yeah, it’s that simple.  The sweepstakes are fun of course but the site is pretty cool too.  You can look up business addresses and phone numbers; find coupons featuring special offers; and get maps and directions, weather forecasts, traffic reports and more.  Visual 411 also allows consumers to share this information directly from the app via email, SMS, Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus. 

Over the past year, Visual 411 has seen daily visits increase nearly 300 percent and delivered thousands of coupons for a variety of businesses and promotions.   It’s a very handy app to have access to.  Invest a quick minute or so to enjoy the video included with this blog.  As the old saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words” and if it’s a video, it’s worth even more.

And after that, check out the Visual 411 site; download Verizon Visual 411 from Google Play or the Apple Store; text “JOIN” to 463648 from their mobile phone; or launch the Visual 411 widget on FiOS TV.  Of course DON’T FORGET to enter the sweepstakes at vz411.com enter today, enter often – and good luck!
