The Big Buck Pole is a multi-media promotion that encompasses TV, Radio, Social Media, Internet, Print, Direct Mail, Event Parties and in-store promotion. The promotion has grown from 80,000 website hits to over 755,000 hits in 3 years with over 1600 entrants and 2000 people attending the Event Prize parties. Website member growth from 1500 in 2008 to 26,500 in 2009.
