Go Visit Hawaii Contest Winner



Thanks to all of you who sent in an idea to promote Go Visit Hawaii.

We had a great response, each of you provided some valuable food for thought. A lot of suggestions revolved around a contest of some kind. As these were very similar – and as contests are something I already have a grasp on :-) – I thought I’d go with an interesting idea, that didn’t involve an out-of-pocket expense.

So, Mahalo to Rob Williams for this interesting idea:

Make a syncidation page on the blog where you pull in flickr photos tagged for hawaii (or refine it better) and youtube videos tagged hawaii.

Also, encourage others to use a unique tag to post to flickr and youtube and pull them in.

What could happen is people who go to Hawaii who didn’t even use the blog would be able to share their experiences with others.  It would compliment the information and allow new visitors not just the information, but the social media to help them.

Rob, drop me an email, and I’ll send you the iPod Shuffle.

Thanks again to all of you, including the friend of mine who suggested…

Marry a famous Internet Marketing consultant with a popular blog and readership, then have him run a contest giving away a free iPod.

    It is a 2 way street – your wife is the secret of your success because she lets you spend so much time blogging.

    Maybe you will be able to get an answer out of Flickr as to exactly what classes as commercial use, because I certainly haven’t been able to.

    Great idea, Rob! Wish I thought about that. Hehe
    Enjoy your iPod!
