Share | the couple of day ago, I received an email from my friend Rob Garcia , Senior Director, Product Strategy @ Lend`g Club (LC)  inform`g me of his latest campaign: the ‘ Shred Your Credit Card Day ‘.    Rob`s always been very active online, and he’s always keen to find new ways to leverage social media to better engage w/ his members & the american people in general.   4 instance last September, to fasten the registration rate, LC gave away $2,500 cash to their 25,000 registered investor . A few months ago, Rob designed the contest urg`g the LC members to submit their photos which were used as background images on the site.     4 those who R not familiar w/ Lend`g Club , LC`s 1 of the lead`g peer-to-peer (social) lend`g services in the US. Renaud Laplanche , the Founder & CEO of the company (and a fellow frenchman), launched the service the few years ago, exclusively on facebook initally.    Tak`g Last Year’s ‘Debtbuster Challenge’ to the Next Level the year ago, Lend`g Club launched ‘ the DebtBuster challenge ‘ to drive awareness & registration.   I believe the challenge didn’t involved any financial reward nor leverage social media.
