We were looking for ways to promote our site and thought a promotional contest would be a good way. My idea was a best answer to this question: "Why do you want a personalized tap handle (rather than an off the shelf or stick on label type)?"
Then my wife in her infinite brilliance suggested, "Why not make a contest for contest ideas. Someone on homebrewtalk has to have a better idea than your best answer contest." Maybe she's right.
So here's the plan....two contests.
Contest 1 - Best design idea - I'll design and produce the winner's idea and send a copy to the winner absolutely free. I just ask for a nice pic I can include in the blog portion of the website.
Contest 2 - Ideas for the next contest. It must be something that promotes the website's products or gathers marketing information. The current frontrunner is my idea...best answer to the question: "Why do you want a personalized tap handle (rather than an off the shelf or stick on label type)?" If someone comes up with a more interesting idea for a promotional contest, they'll win contest 2 (same prize...free personalized tap handle) and we'll run their contest idea as our next contest idea.
Everyone who enters Contest 1 or Contest 2 will get a PM'ed a coupon code for 15% off their order.
Closing date: Midnight Eastern Standard Time Sunday November 6th.
By the way, we love the ideas submitted so far. Judging this might be pretty tough...but a heck of a lot of fun.
thanks everyone, keep'em coming.
