My house loves March Madness and all that comes with it. The brackets, the games, time with friends. Brackets have proven a great way to engage basketball fans for years. But what if a business could make up their own bracket for anything they wanted?

The goal was to build a customizable Facebook promotion application similar to some of the sweepstakes and photo gallery type promotions. The unique idea here though is it's a Facebook Bracket App. Users get to click on a bracket item to advance it. Once they've voted, they see the results and sharing options, thus increasing the reach of this promotion. The Facebook Bracket App is perfect for March or basketball promotions.

I chose to go with Minnesota Roadside Attractions here to help promote Minnesota and all the great things it has to offer.

This app allows for 8 positions, so I chose to go with:

  • Weldon Rooster - Two Harbors
  • Pelican Pete - Pelican Rapids
  • Big Ole - Alexandria
  • Spam Museum - Austin
  • Paul and Babe - Bemidji
  • Ball of Twine - Darwin
  • Hockey Stick - Eveleth
  • Jolly Green Giant - Blue Earth


The results are in! Paul and Babe ended up winning with about 38% of the votes!

37.8% Paul and Babe -  Bemidji
21.6% Ball of Twine - Darwin
18.9% Jolly Giant - Blue Earth
8.1% Big Ole - Alexandria
5.4% Hockey Stick - Eveleth
2.7% Weldon Rooster - Two Harbors
0.0% Pelican Pete - Pelican Rapids
0.0% Spam Museum - Austin
