Advertising can be an expensive necessity for any online business (but a necessity nonetheless). ArtFire wants to help make the advertising process easy on you AND your wallet! Doesn’t that sound great? We’re giving away a premium advertising package to the winner of the #ArtFireWorks contest.
The #ArtFire Works Contest
There are 3 stages that each last 7 days: Blog. Tweet. Vote.
STAGE 1: Write a blog post that answers the question “How does ArtFire Work for me?”
Answer this question on your personal blog** (your ArtFire Shop Blog works too!) in no more than 500 words. Make sure that somewhere on your blog post there is a link to Artfire.com (it doesn’t matter where it’s located as long as it’s there).
You have 7 days to write your blog post, starting 3/5/2014 and ending 3/12/2014.
STAGE 2: Tweet that post! 3/13/2014 – 3/20/2014
You have 7 days to share your post on twitter and enter it in the official contest. Your entry tweet should include a link to your blog post as well as the hashtag #ArtFireWorks and an @Artfire mention.
STAGE 3: Every vote counts! 3/21/2014 – 3/28/2014
Stage 3 is a week of voting. The Nosh Blog will host a voting poll that features a link to each valid blog post entry (if you’ve completed Stage 1 & 2 you’ll be amongst the contestant finalists in the poll).
This part of the contest depends a lot on you because it’s all about sharing the blog post with as many people as possible to get them to vote for yours. The blog that gets the most votes at the end of Stage 3 will be our winner!
Remember to check back during this week of the contest to see how your blog is holding up to the competition. Plus, you might end up making some new like-minded friends.
