  • 9. 2) Correct form of contest
  • 10. 3) Correct prize • Bigger is not always better • Cash = not suitable if looking for targeted customers • Generic prizes appeal to a wide range of people • Carefully selected prizes do better job in attracting interested audience
  • 11. 3) Correct prize (cont.) • The prize doesn’t have to be physical. It can be a public honor or status for the winner. • Selected prize needs to do 2 things: ▫ Encourage people in the niche to enter the contest. ▫ Discourage people who aren’t in the niche from entering.
