WHERE TO START: The most popular opportunity contest being run with LevelEleven partners is one that rewards participants for stage progression; motivate your folks to move their opportunities a step closer to a “win”.  

Other ideas include a contest that rewards participants for new opportunities added during the contest timeframe, a contest that is based on prospecting, rewarding participants for adding a competitive presence (if applicable) to an opportunity, or one that rewards participants for new opportunities generated supporting a new product you are bringing to market.
