Alamo Mobile Games for Family Roadtrips

These days both kids and parents alike seem to be glued to their smartphones like never before.  Just in time for the summer vacation, Alamo Rent A Car wants to keep the gang connected with mobile games aimed at family roadtrips.

Via the AlamoGames2Go web app, as well as on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Vine, consumers can enter a sweepstakes and play the following hashtag-based games:

  • Alamoding (featuring photos of family members in their best driving poses)
  • PixPursuit (pics from a scavenger hunt)
  • SnapFamily (scenic family photos)
  • Alamovie (video of family vacation moments)

Participants can submit content using #AlamoGames2Go for the chance to win items every week as well as a $5,000 grand prize. Participating bloggers will host individual contests as well.


While the games are designed to be engaging, the marketing plan is also worthy of attention.  In a campaign aided by Alamo's digital agency 360i, the Clayton, Mo.-based brand has partnered with eight mom bloggers who will leverage their websites and Twitter followings to push AlamoGames2Go. Writers for sites like A Nut in a Nutshell, Mommy Musings and 2 Wired 2 Tired will tweet about the games through Sept. 16. Alamo will push some messages via Twitter's Promoted Tweets, in addition to Facebook ads and national radio spots.

"It's about reaching our target audience, which is head-of-household moms," said Meghan Maguire, Alamo's brand publicity manager. "They are already playing in those [social] spaces, posting pictures of their family. This is a program to reach them while building brand awareness."

What we offer

GajGal is an expanding community of mothers helping mothers. Our motto “Get a Job | Get a Life” is based on the belief that for mothers wanting to get back into the workforce, finding a job with “the right level” of flexibility, empowers working mothers to live life on their own terms and better control their own destiny.
GajGal aims to address this “new reality” through four core components:

  • 1. Job Search and Matching tools to streamline finding the perfect fit for flexible work arrangements.
  • 2. Access to Benefits that in the traditional work environment have been provided by full time employers. GajGal helps to provide a critical mass of members to ensure access to a range of benefits options that we are continually working to expand and improve on.
  • 3. Working Mother Community to provide access to news, blogs and articles of interest and importance to working mothers and a social networking community that working mothers can interact with and draw on for support.
  • 4. The Entrepreneur Zone is for mothers aiming to start their own business and expand on the concepts of working mothers helping working mothers succeed.

“Using your Benefits link made it easy to select from a wide range of health insurance offerings and narrow down the various plans available that best fit my needs. Being able to make a side by side comparison of the details further helped me make an informed decision on a plan with great rates. The application is swift and uncomplicated”

“ WOW this is a fantastic idea aimed at a true need. I have had a hard time preparing to go back to work after staying home with my two kids for the past 4 years. I am so excited to start adding my requirements and get started on the search. The Latest News and Benefits are an excellent idea. I would come here to read this even if I wasn't looking for a job right now”
