  • Holiday Decoration Marketing idea & contest

    Let's all get into the spirit of the holidays. I created this flyer you can edit and hand out in your area. The idea of this marketing concept is that you are going to position yourself as the go to lawn care business in your area. You are going to be the one that is leading this outdoor holiday decoration contest. If local residents dont have time to put up decorations, then you can do it for them and include some coupons at the bottom of the flyer to promote this.

    Then go around your area and take pictures of homes with outdoor holiday decorations and put them on your website. Or put them on your myspace page. Then promote where these pictures will be and how local residents can visit your page to vote for their favorite house.

    How can they vote? Either post something below the picture in your myspace site or send in an email.

    Then you will choose a winner near Christmas time and possible hand out some gifts

    What kind of gifts? How about three trophies to the best decorated houses? Or ask around town and see if any other business owner would like to donate a prize to the winner.

    Send out a press release to your local paper to let them know you are conducting this contest and how readers can submit their pictures to you by emailing you.

    I also want to see the picture you take or are submitted. Maybe we can have a vote here for the best overall holiday decoration pictures.

    Here is a screen cap of the flyer.

    You can download the flyer here and edit it with a free program called openoffice.org. <span style='color:Red'>Make sure you logged into the forum to download all files</span>

                How cool would it be if you could set up a website that could turn on and off christmas lights and then charge someone for setting up such a service&#33; Or maybe have this service at your home and have a link through your website site to turn your holiday lights on or off&#33;

                Maybe you could put a yard sign out front that would tell people what site to visit&#33; This could be a great promotion&#33;

                Check out his website at http://www.komar.org/

                        Steve, how long will this contest run?

                        Can we enter more than one set of pics?

                        Is there REALLY only two of us in the running so far?
