We Won Something! Social Contests Work
Ever wish you could win something? Yup, me too. But this time we actually did.
A Christian Bookstore in our area ran a social contest for Halloween. The goal was to help promote the bookstore and Veggie Tales. My 1st grader son loves Veggie Tales (and so do Mom and Dad), so of course my bride dressed him up in a second costume just so he could participate in this contest.
We submitted our entry via Twitter, and voila he won one of the runner up prizes (there were 5 plus one grand prize winner).
It’s true, get the right contest going, and you’ll get people’s attention.
Thanks for the gift card Family Christian Stores!
