ExpertBail launches a new Facebook promotion to ensure every child gets a toy for the holidays.
After a successful Thanksgiving Facebook promotion that provided meals for over 500 families in Fresno, California, ExpertBail, the nation’s first and only nationally branded bail bond network, launched its new Holiday Toy Drive promotion. “We had such a great response from our Thanksgiving promotion and we were able to help feed so many families in need, that we wanted to take it to the next level for the holidays,” says Eric Granof, Chief Marketing Officer for AIA and ExpertBail. “While we focused on one location for our Thanksgiving promotion, we are looking to expand that to 10 locations around the country for our new Holiday Toy Drive promotion.”
With over 5,000 verified agents in its Network, ExpertBail is committed to challenging the negative stereotypes of the bail profession by putting a more professional and trusted face on the industry. “Most people don’t understand the bail bond industry at all,” adds Granof. “In addition to this lack of understanding, most people also have a pretty negative impression of those that make up the industry, the actual bail agents. The common perception is that they are untrusting, unprofessional thugs that run through the streets with guns chasing fugitives. The reality of the industry couldn’t be further from that perception.”
The ExpertBail Network prides itself on helping those in need. Many of the agents that make up the nationwide network are active participants in their local communities. From charitable causes to youth sports programs to advocating community safety, ExpertBail Agents are committed to actively participating in making their communities a better place to live.
The new ExpertBail Toy Drive promotion launched on December 1st and will run through the first three weeks of the month. In order to participate, all people must to do is "Like" ExpertBail’s Facebook page and ExpertBail will donate a toy to a family in need. Everyone who “Likes” the page will also be asked to put the name of the city that they would like to see receive the donation.
ExpertBail will select ten cities that receive the most mentions on Facebook and provide them each with a donation based on the total number of likes.
