Looking for "Hidden" Opportunities

When considering marketing our businesses, we often need to think outside of the box from time to time.

My daughter came across a contest this morning that really piqued my interest. There are three prizes involved. One is free advertising. If you are in business, free advertising is a wonderful way to spread the word about your business. Their second prize is an interview. Again, as a business owner who can't benefit from an interview? Their third prize is one of their products, a trailer bike. Even if you personally don't need/want the trailer bike, you can use this prize as yet one more way to increase exposure to your own business by accepting the bike and then donating it or giving it away. This is such a win win opportunity.

The link to enter the contest is http://www.5minutesformom.com/3176/caboose-trailer-bike/.

Kudos to the owner of this company for offering such a wonderful opportunity to others.

I thought I'd share one more blog contest with you http://www.sparkplugging.com/momsational/win-a-toaster-oven-plus-45-in-tyson-anytizers/#respond I entered to win the free toaster oven they are giving away.

Thanks for the comment, and thanks for the contest link about the toaster oven!

I also liked your marketing post below, I'm new to all of this, and not even sure how deep I want to dig in getting started!

Thanks for stopping by my blog - it's good to meet you! I am a big Tupperware fan as well, although I haven't bought anything new in a while, I use what I have all the time.

I thought it was pretty unique that 5 Minutes for Mom was including free advertising in their giveaway; I am not sure I am ready for that, but the bike would be a huge blessing for us.

Would you consider giving a donation and sponsoring me and Tristan in the March for Babies? We walk on May 3rd and this is something I am very passionate about. The badge to donate is on my blog on the sidebar. Thanks again!
