Creating a Win- Win - Win situation! What Do You Want to Win?
Just in case I haven’t mentioned to you before, let me share with you; I have a passion for Twitter, I love it. I love it because I get to connect with so many bright, witty & fun people.
Yesterday I experienced another of the really great things about Twitter-one of my lovely followers @AndrewEmmett asked if I would think about creating competitions for my followers, and get other companies on Twitter to donate prizes. Which I think is a brilliant idea.
However, the most important person to tell me if it's a good idea, or not, is you, because you're the one reading this blog post. You're the one I will be running the competitions for.
So please, tell me what you want, what you really really want!
- What do you want to win?
I'm thinking some of the prizes could be tickets to my courses, (Dates of which we'll be announcing next week), One to One coaching sessions with myself, and of course goodies like Flip cams, Skype headsets, Domain registration, hosting, things that would be useful for your business.
Please tell me what YOU WANT TO WIN
Sponsorship Opportunities: Also, if you're already running your own business what kind of things could you donate as prizes- a great way to get new customers to experience your products & get a wider exposure.
- What competitions do you want to get involved in?
There will be a monthly competition, so it's a regular opportunity to win something that will be useful & valuable for your business, but what topics do you want to see?
One of the ideas I have is to have a Celebrate Your Success competition- where people post their successes, large or small & winners are chosen from those posts. The most witty or inspiring successes would of course have the edge.
Or, we could put a case study up from business owners that need help, and the prize will go to the best/most helpful suggestion. This type of competition creates a win-win-win! The business gets the help it needs, the person suggesting the help gets to show off their knowledge & expertise & the prize, & the sponsors of the prize get exposure to some of the most inspirational, problem solving business owners around!
Those are just a couple of ideas, I know there are lots of others out there & we could easily do a different theme each month, so let me know what your ideas are.
Life is exactly as you create it to be, so now's your opportunity to create the prizes & competitions that you want.
So please, leave a comment below, or tweet me so that you can design the competition & prizes that you really want to win!
I'll keep the discussion open until Tuesday the 15th of June, so that, fingers crossed, we'll have time to run our first competition in June :)
