I am very proud of the #PMChat community! I thought this deserved a repost here on my personal blog…
As you all know, we are in full swing of celebrating our 1 Year Anniversary of #PMChat and we are ready to kick it into high-gear on the give-aways. As mentioned last week, stay engaged with the community because you never know when a Trivia question will pop-up. We have had some tremendous support from so many folks and prizes include books, IPM buttons, t-shirts, blankets, a conference voucher ($2,395 value) and a virtual class ($795 value)!
One item of support that is available to everyone in the #PMChat community (without competing or signing-up) comes from our friends over at ProjectWorld…a 20% discount on their upcoming PW&WCBA 2012 event in Orlando, Fl on September 10-12th. You can use the following code up to onsite registration to receive the discount: PW12PMCHAT
What Rob and I are really excited for are the #PMChat Olympics! Think of this as an online/social media scavenger hunt, in which we will provide a series of tasks you must complete in order to win one of the awesome prizes! Don’t worry…even if this is the first time you have heard of #PMChat, you still have just as good a chance at bringing home one of the prizes.
Rob and I are not lawyers, so the rules below are more of a set of guidelines and no prize can be redeemed for cash value. This is all meant for us to have some fun, connect, and celebrate a great year of collaboration.
- To be eligible, prior to next week’s release of ‘Let the Games Begin’, you must tweet a link to this very blog post and say “I am competing in the free #PMChat Olympics, on Aug 16th, for a chance to win prizes worth up to $2,395 USD – Join me & read this (insert link) #pmot”…several posts may result in a prize ;D
- On August 16th at 11:30 AMEST, I will publish a blog post called “Let The Games Begin” with the exact task list you must complete. This should be a fair time for our audience…plus we are providing notice here.
- Upon completion, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org stating that you have completed all the tasks in the #PMChat Olympics…give us your name, location/address, and Twitter handle.
- On August 17th, Rob and I will announce the winners (1st Place & Runner-Up) live during the #PMChat Pre-Game Show….be sure to tune in via KPS Chatter on BlogTalkRadio
- If anything is unclear, please contact Rob or I…links to us are all over the place!
