Find Ways to Involve Your Customers in Non-Business Events and Activities
Veteran contractor sponsors a 'March Madness Pool' for his company's customers.
Submitted by Dale McCaskill, president of Southco Sweeping and Maintenance:
The day after the 2010 NCAA brackets were in place, Southco customers got an email announcing the company's NCAA March Madness Tournament Pool. The website Tournament Pools makes it easy for companies to sign up and hold their own pools.
McCaskill reported that this was the third customer pool Southco had done. "My customers love it," he reports. "Prizes have ranged from i-pods to vacations. It is a great way to say thanks to your customers and friends. We expect to have about 40 players total." The send-out information Southco used is shown below.
It's time for Southco March Madness... a fun way to pick your NCAA Basketball Brackets for free and win prizes from Southco. It is our way of saying thanks to our customers and friends. Everyone in your office can play. If you receive this email pass it around your work place. The more the merrier. Prizes this year are as follows:
1st place- $300.00
All winners receive (suitable for framing) a certificate for office bragging purposes.
