Office Depot and HP Use Sweeppea for Their College SMS Sweepstakes

HP and Office Depot/Office Max wanted to promote their Sprocket Photo Pinter in colleges across the US. With text or SMS being a top form of communication for this audience, it’s only natural that HP and Office Depot leveraged Sweeppea’s platform for their College Campus Tour SMS Sweepstakes.

They gave college students a chance to win Sprocket printers and HP swag via SMS. All participants had to do to enter was text the word SPROCKET to the number 65047 for a chance to win.


  • To build awareness and excitement for the product

Promotional Channels:

  • Thousands of participants entered
