Our “Design-A-Sign” Scholarship Contest may be ending soon (May 24th, to be exact), but it’s not too late to move up in the ranks! With the enough momentum and votes, climbing to the very top is still possible. We’re here to share a few easy ways how you can leverage social media to win the grand prize, a $1000 scholarship! Keep reading to learn more.
Like It. Like It A Lot.
Ask your Facebook friends to vote for your design! Be sure to use our plug-in to share your design with everyone you know. You can also ask your friends to share your design with their friends so that they can share it with their friends… so on and so on. It’s a quick way to multiply the number of votes you have, so take advantage of it!
There’s No Tweet About It!
It seems like everyone’s on Twitter these days. Make sure to spread the word about your design with a well-hashtagged tweet. The right #hashtags will make sure that people see your 140-character tweet! May we suggest #designasign, #vote, #scholarship, and #signazon?
Broadcast Your Design.
Nothing goes viral faster than a Youtube video. A funny idea (nothing dangerous, please!) could be a huge hit, and it’s the perfect way to reach a lot of people around the world. You don’t even have to do anything too outrageous. A simple, creative video showcasing your design could get hundreds of hits, in turn getting your design hundreds of votes.
It’s All About The Reblogs.
Like Youtube videos, Tumblr posts reach hundreds of people in a very short time, thanks to the handy reblog button in the upper right corner of every Tumblr post. Create a reblog-worthy design and share it with your Tumblr followers. Make sure to explain why you need their help spreading the word about your design. Soon, you’ll be tumblr-ing to victory!
These are just a few suggestions. There are, of course, several other social media platforms you can use, including Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, and more. It’s just important to remember that it’s not too late to win, so don’t stop getting out the vote!
