WHERE TO START: Launching a new product? Run a contest that rewards the participant for every conversation that includes the new productbeing introduced.
Other ideas include a contest that rewards participants for every new activity created during the contest time frame.
ACTIVITIES: AS AMERICAN AS APPLE PIE
IDEA: In Celebration of Thanksgiving.
ALTERNATIVE NAMES: Give Thanks For Activities; Pie In The Face (for in-person meetings)
GOAL OF CONTEST: Without activity, there are no new leads, no opportunities, and thus no revenue. Build a contest that rewards points for each task (or event) entered during the respective contest period.
POSSIBLE PRIZES: Apple pie delivered to the winner’s home or office! Or, the winner of the competition gets to throw a pie in the face of the person in last place!
VOTE FOR DEMOS
IDEA: In honor of Election Day on the first Tuesday of November.
GOAL OF CONTEST: The two winners from the previous contest will pick their teams for this team-based contest around who can schedule the most demos. Award points for Activities with Type “Demo” or the word “Demo” contained in the Subject or Description.
POSSIBLE PRIZES: A day or half day off in November; an hour-long nap in the breakroom to celebrate Congressional napping; Flowers and/or Champagne delivered to your desk to celebrate the winner (similar to how the political winners celebrate)
