We’re loving the social media campaigns this week. Brands are running a slew of contests, and we thought featuring a few of them will entice our readers into entering them. This week, we have Clinique’s #ImIn, Costa’s #MyMorningHasBroken and Land Rover’s #Hibernot, and they’re all challenging Twitter users to be bolder than ever. Plus, a few more Twitter trends to be aware of. Read on!
Clinique_UK’s #ImIn Challenge
Clinique UK is giving Twitter and Instagram users a chance to win one of three amazing experiences. Anyone bold enough to take on these challenges is being encouraged to use the hashtag #ImIn on Twitter and Instagram for a chance to win an experience, which includes hot air balloon ride, husky sledging, or a makeup session with for two.
The beauty brand have collaborated with beauty bloggers who have shared their experiences on their website, and on Twitter.

Are you in?
Costa Coffee is helping us make our mornings bearable. The coffee shop chain is asking Twitter users to Tweet them any time something upsets our morning routine. Perhaps, you have a flat tire or you’re stuck in tube delays. Costa Coffee will try to bring a smile to your face if you Tweet them with the hashtag #MyMorningHasBroken. The campaign comes in an effort to promote their new all day breakfast bloomer, but that’s not all. They’re also rewarding Twitter users with gift vouchers to “Fix their mornings”.

A fine way of upping the ante on Twitter campaigns. Mornings are usually broken!
Land Rover’s #Hibernot
Land Rover is trying its best to get the world out of its warm cocoons and discover the beauty of winter. In a campaign called #Hibernot, the car brand is asking Twitter users to see “winter differently”. To entice us further, Land Rover UK has collaborated with different influencers to show us what the cold season has to offer. But if you’re in Canada, you can also enter Land Rover Canada’s competition and get a chance to stay at the luxurious log chateau located midway between Montreal and Ottawa.
