I just saw my first back-to-school commercial of the year. You know the type I’m talking about — they are hilarious. A parent is dancing through the aisles, grabbing school supplies while their kids look so depressed. Example:

In honor of all of the parents stocking up on school supplies, we decided to feature a competition this month around stocking up on opportunities, by motivating pipeline behaviors. We suggest giving the winner $50 toward school supplies.

Have fun!
