While the COMC Blog is your #1 source for COMC updates, industry news, hobby focused editorials, and much more, there are plenty of reasons that you should be following all of our social media pages! If you’re not following our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook pages, you’re missing out on content exclusive to those platforms such as contests, giveaways, sales of the week, and the #DailyCheckout to name just a few. We want to give you a sneak peak of some of that content that you may be missing out on, so we present our ‘Social Media Roundup’ for the months of January & February:
Our Facebook Page is home to sports related contests/giveaways, including our popular ‘Caption Contest’, where we ask our followers to hit us with their best caption for a funny sports photo or picture featured on a trading card for a chance to win COMC Credit.
Our followers were also able to play along with our ‘Pick ‘Em’ contests all throughout the NFL Football playoffs and Super Bowl, with several members of the COMC Nation taking home COMC Credit, cards, and swag for their correct picks. A fair warning, we truly have some sports Nostradamus’ among the COMC Nation, so competition is fierce!
Caption Contests are a weekend tradition on the COMC Facebook Page, and recently we’ve had some of our funniest ones yet. We asked our followers to come up with a Hip-Hop Duo name for Dave & Doug Widell, who were featured in this hilarious 1992 Pro Line Portraits Trading Card, and we were not disappointed:
“MC Hairline and DJ False Start”
“The Mile High Foreheads”
“Recede with Caution”
“D&D Music Factory”
Over on the COMC Twitter feed you’ll find us retweeting the latest news across all major sports, as well as unique an fresh recurring content of our own. Our Monday Morning Discussions produce great chat about various sports related topics. One of our most recent discussions polled our followers to tweet their favorite sports related video games at us, and we received nearly 100 responses:
The COMC Twitter account is also home to the #DailyCheckout, where we feature one athlete, sports personality, or subject per day. This recurring series shines light on their backstory and/or recent accomplishments, while linking to their available trading cards on the COMC Marketplace. Each week has an overarching theme, such as our favorite All-time Seattle Mariners, best current-season NBA Rookies, or more recently our favorite Pokemon!
If you enjoy sharing your trading card collection with others, you should consider tagging the COMC Instagram account in your #Mailday pictures! We love sharing our customer’s #Maildays to our Instagram page. This year we’ve even started sharing our Top eBay Sale of the Week on Instagram! If you haven’t been following along, here are our most expensive items that have sold on eBay through the first eight weeks of 2019:
That’s going to do it for this installment of Social Media Roundup on the COMC Blog! We’d love to hear your suggestions for content that you’d like to see on our social media platforms! Leave a comment below with your thoughts, feedback, and ideas!
