This blog was originally posted in mid-2007, but in honor of my own Scavenger Hunt scheduled for this Friday morning, I thought I'd run it again...
...read all the way through to learn more about how to enter the 2012 SWSConnect Scavenger Hunt!
Announce Your Website with a Scavenger Hunt! (August 2007)
Got your new website all fired up and ready to go? YEAH!
Waiting anxiously for the inquiries, leads and, admit it, the compliments to start pouring in?
Waiting... waiting... waiting...
(Don't worry, this is NOT a blog about SEO, key words or Google rankings.)
It's about how you can generate interest in your cyber-baby among the people you know.
Have a Cyber Scavenger Hunt!
It's pretty simple, really.
Go through your web site page by page and find interesting little Tidbits and Factoids. (If you can't find any, you might wanna hit the drawing board again!).
Formulate questions around these Tidbits & Factoids.
Send out an email to everyone you know announcing the scavenger hunt. Offer fun prizes, preferably ones that will give them ongoing warm fuzzies about you. Such as... I dunno... Starbuck's gift cards, a local magazine subscription, a year membership at the zoo....? Be creative... you'll come up with something cool.
And send ME an invitation to your Scavenger Hunt so I can join the fun!
Sound like something you might want to try? Well, if you'd like to see such a thing might work, you're welcome to join the SWS crowd on Friday for the 2012 SWSConnect Scavenger Hunt.
Here's the scoop.
On Friday morning (March 16th), around 8am (Pacific) / 11am (Eastern), I'll send out and post a list of "items" that can be found at the all-new SWSConnect - and you'll need to... duh... FIND them! YOU MUST BE A REGISTERED MEMBER OF SWSCONNECT AND LOGGED IN to participate! So, you might want to do that ahead of time (like, now) and make sure your profile is completely filled out (hint). If you're already a member of SWSConnect, make sure you remember your username and password - once the Hunt begins, I won't be able to address login issues in a timely manner.
The list of items to find will be provided in three places at the appointed time: 1) via email to the SWS mailing list; 2) on my Active Rain blog (right here); and 3) at the SWS Forum under the "Selling Real Estate with Soul" board.
The first five finishers (who "find" all items correctly) will win a $300 gift certificate to the SWS Bookstore; the next ten will win a $100 gift certificate and everyone else will receive a $20-thanks-for-playing-but-you-didn't-win gift certificate.
So... watch this space on Friday morning... make sure you can log all the way into SWSConnect... and let the games begin!
