A search has begun for the region’s most social business.

intu Metrocentre and intu Eldon Square are looking to recognise and reward businesses who go the extra mile on social media.

The Twitter competition will challenge local businesses to demonstrate their social media prowess.

Any business based in the north east can take part and the winning team will be crowned the North East’s Most Social Business and be rewarded with £200 worth of intu Gift Cards for their staff.

All businesses have to do to enter is share the image from their business Twitter account and tag in either @intuEldonSquare or @intuMetrocentre.

The business with the most retweets, wins

Regional marketing manager, Karen Carr said: “We are aiming to bring a little fun into a very busy working environment for all, and we recently celebrated local teachers with our North East Teacher of the year campaign – now we’re championing local businesses by giving them a chance to demonstrate their influence on Twitter.

“Our gift cards are hugely popular for every occasion as they can be used at over 500 shops and restaurants between intu Metrocentre and intu Eldon Square, and they are already used by hundreds of companies across the north east as corporate gifts to reward staff.”

The competition will run until Sunday, August 16. The overall winner will be announced on Monday, August 17.
