This week on the Pixlee blog, see how Pixlee brands Chubbies and Review Australia set up social media campaigns to gather user-generated content for shoppable social media galleries on their websites.
#55hours – Chubbies Shorts sells apparel that comes in a variety of colorful patterns to add a swaggy statement piece to any outfit. To emphasize the playful and fun-loving spirit of the Chubbies brand, Chubbies launched the #55hours social contest and gallery to celebrate the precious #55hours of the weekend.
Contestants can enter to win an epic weekend getaway by sharing a weekend-inspired photo that captures how they spend their #55Hours. In addition, they must tag @Chubbies and use #55hours in the caption. To drive traffic to the contest landing page, Chubbies has shared the contest on its social media channels and included a link to the contest landing page in the navigation bar on its site.

#ReviewGirl – Review Australia, a vintage-inspired retail store for women, hosts an inspiration gallery on its site to share user-generated content posted with the branded #ReviewGirl hashtag.

The #ReviewGirl inspiration gallery provides users with authentic visual reviews from previous shoppers to drive conversions on the site.
