WHERE TO START: The most popular call contest being run with LevelEleven partners is one that rewards participants for talk time.  

Other ideas include a contest that rewards participants for the number of calls made each day and/or call blitzes which are run for a short amount of time (e.g. one hour or a “power hour”).

GOAL OF CONTEST: Revenue is king.  Of course, revenue is a lagging indicator; when it comes to increasing the success of our organization, it is the leading indicators that should be focused on.  Design a competition in which participants are awarded for every conversation that takes place with a prospect/customer. Award the participant with the highest number of conversations during the contest period.

POSSIBLE PRIZES: Best Buy gift card, Apple or iTunes gift card
