I know so many of us are in small businesses to make a few bucks on the side. Traditionally, it’s been hard and expensive to advertise these businesses and there is a lot of competition. So, I’ve come up with a great way to advertise your business. We join forces and hold a giant giveaway! To enter, contestants must sign up for whatever you choose: Like a Facebook page, join a Facebook group, follow you on Twitter, Instagram, sign up for an email list, whatever. Each of us will have one option for the contestants to choose, and they’ll get one entry for each of us. Make it easy and quick for them. The winner will be chosen at random on May 30, 2018 at midnight EDT via Rafflecopter.
Directions: (Once you give me your email address, I’ll send you a copy of this.)
1. Sign up! Everything on the form is essential for me to have so we can keep in touch. The first fifteen (15) people to sign up get the spots. If I have many more, I’ll hold another contest shortly after this one. It’s first come, first served, so please don’t yell at me if you’re #16. I hope to do more of these if all goes well. Also, I’m going to add all the dates to Google calendar. If you use that or iCal, you can add my promo calendar, and it’ll put all the dates onto your calendar. See below for links.
2. Decide what to send. I’ll be putting the prizes together in a box and sending it to the winner. Keep in mind, I’ll also have to fit all of our items in one promo photo. Suggestion: No bigger than 6″x6″, and preferably lightweight. No lead anvils, please. 😉
3. You’ll have three weeks from now to get the prize in case you have to order or make it. Mail the prize and business card or flier to: (address will be in your email) by Thursday, May 17, 2018. I should receive prizes by Monday, May 21. If you don’t let me know you’ve sent it, or I haven’t received the prize, you won’t be included. Make sure to keep in touch with me. If you could, please toss a dollar bill into your box when you send it, to help with postage. I figure it’ll be around $15 for me to send the prize box, so if everybody pitches in $1, that should cover it.
4. Deadline for signup: Thursday, May 17, 2018. At that point, I’ll wait for everything to arrive, photograph the goods for the promo, then send you a few photos. I will also give you a link to the contest page on Rafflecopter.
5. Promotion begins! On and after Tuesday, May 22, post about the giveaway on your personal and business Facebook page, in Twitter, on your blog, wherever you want. Go crazy!
6. Winner will be chosen via Rafflecopter at midnight on Wednesday, May 30, 2018. I’ll notify the winner and get their address. If they don’t respond in 3 days, I’ll choose someone else.
