BlackBerry to hand out gifts if you spread the BBM love

BBM_for_allWhile BlackBerry is suffering with a market share of smartphones going below 1%, they have at least one area that they just might have some hope and it is of course BBM. The BBM app which was previously an exclusive for the BlackBerry platform was launched on iOS and Android devices last year, giving BlackBerry and even larger reach, although admittedly the app would have to compete with the likes of other messaging apps out there.

While the app itself is free, BlackBerry has not been shy about thinking on how to cash-in on the app, but if they are hoping to do that, they will probably need to get as many users as possible, which is why BlackBerry has recently launched a new promotion in the US and Canada (what happened to Europe…read UK) where they will be giving away movie tickets and gift cards to users who share the app.

Basically in order to take part in this promotion, you would have to live in the US or Canada, now that’s surprise! You will then need to share that you are using the BBM app on your social network and from there you will stand a chance to win movie tickets and gift cards. Given that you will not always win, basically the idea for you to keep posting until you do, or at least until your friends get sick of seeing you spam their news feed.

It’s not a bad way to get the word out and if you’d like to learn more about the promotion, which will be going on until the 27th of February 2014, checkout  BlackBerry’s website for the details.
