Designing Business Competitions

By Felix Stendahl Subscribe to RSS | March 27th 2012 | Views:

The recent instability in the global economy made the trading environment a bit tougher for everyone once again. People suddenly became wise consumers who are frugal with their money and prudent in their spending. As a result, manufacturers and retailers intensified their efforts to improve the products and services they offer, and develop marketing techniques that can eventually win customers.

However, marketing these days seems to have become too mainstreamed. The word can be found almost everywhere – from newspaper ads to online sources – and almost everyone uses the term without really knowing how it ought to work. As a matter of fact, there are some estimates claiming that a person can averagely be flooded with 10,000 marketing messages daily. Since it has become too common, consumers already find it hard to distinguish which ones are true and effective.

With that, businesses gain another challenge of their trade. That is: stepping up their game and standing out among all traders through distinct and remarkable marketing strategies. One that is suggested these days is the employment of business competitions that can initiate better exposure for traders and can satisfy their consumers with great rewards as well.

Nevertheless, planning and executing business contests is not that simple. There are a lot of things to consider and if not properly designed, the devised plan can simply go futile. To avoid making mistakes, here are some of the crucial points that businesses should focus on as they organize their next promotional competition.

As suggested by most contest management experts, the venture should be planned by starting with the desired end in mind. Knowing the exact marketing objectives can shed some light on the whole project because proprietors will already know where they are going. Feasibility and practicality can be discussed with that as well, specifically through the proposal of the budget.

The next key point is choosing the target market. The age, gender, and location should be specified in certain occasions like in conducting Mother’s Day photo contests, trick-or-treat games, and back-to-school promos. In organizing all these details and more, competition management software can help a great deal.

This competition software can be purchased from business contest service providers that can also offer their brilliant suggestions through consultations. With that, even the execution and award provision can be streamlined and ensure successful promotional competitions. For more techniques and suggestions on devising business contests, one can go to
