Business owner hosts virtual Halloween Costume Contest on Facebook to inspire entrepreneurs to let their inner goblin out and for the chance to win a free iPhone
CEO and Founder Nancy Michaels of www.GrowYourBusinessNetwork.com will be tweeting this Halloween and possibly tricking some of her long-standing entrepreneurial clientele. According to MSNBC, Halloween is no longer a kids industry and more costumes are being sold to adults than their kid counterparts.
Business owner Nancy Michaels is holding her first annual virtual Halloween Costume Contest on Facebook. Always believing you’re never too old to make a “ghoul” of yourself, Michaels was inspired by the recent insistence of her three adolescent children to deck out her cape-style home on a suburban cul-de-sac.
As co-author of Off the Wall Marketing Ideas, Michaels has always been a fan of doing the unusual to get customers’ attention and creating a fun and memorable experience between her clients and her company.
“We wanted to do something very fun for our small business customers – many of whom – work from home in relative isolation and this is a great way to connect virtually and celebrate individuality.”
The public will be able to vote on Best Costume, similar to the People Choice Awards with the grand prize being a new 32-gig iPhone 3GS.
Michaels choose the tie-in with an Apple product because their marketing focuses on the few who dare to do things differently.
Go to www.NancysHalloweenContest.com to check of the rules and submit your photo and chance to win.
What is Ms. Michaels going as? “Although I’m a registered independent, I’ve always been told I resemble Laura Bush – so I’ll be putting on a navy blue suit and purchasing a stand up of W himself to show that behind every fabulous woman is a card board man.”
