"I think the traffic potential of this method is huge"
Andover, MN (PRWEB) September 15, 2010
Boat To Beach Decor, an online store, is hosting a contest this month on their new blog where participants can win one of three prizes using social media to get traffic.
The contest will run from August 19th to September 19th, 2010, so contestants will have thirty days to compete. The contest start date was chosen by company founder, Barbara Roehler, as it is the second Anniversary of Boat To Beach Décor opening for business.
The contest is based on points earned for simple social media tasks completed. An example of one of the tasks is for the contestant to post the contest website link on Twitter (called a Tweet) and share it with their followers. This task will earn five points and only takes seconds to complete, but is great word of mouth advertising.
Barbara learned of this contest idea when Internet marketers Justin and Chaunna Brooke from SiteFling.com wrote a post about this on their blog. The post was regarding blog contests, but Barbara thought this method could easily be applied to any online business. "We hope that this is a fun contest for all involved, because then it is a win-win situation for everyone, which I feel is the best way to do business" said Barbara.
She read on Justin's blog that when he ran his blog contest, he received over 8,000 visitors in its first two weeks, as well as gained fans, followers, and subscribers.
"I think the traffic potential of this method is huge, so I am grateful to Justin and Chaunna for the idea" commented Barbara.
Complete details regarding the contest can be found at the new Boat To Beach Decor blog.
