Default facebook contest......

Have my facebook page up and running, thanks RCP! Anyway a friend of mine had a neat idea about facebook. He suggested I run a contest for all friends to submit a picture of the worst painted room they have. To register, they have to become a fan of my painting page. Then all fans will vote, the winner gets a complete room paint-over. I am still working out the details, however I think I am going to try it. Friends of friends could become fans, hoepfully generate traffic and branding, since I am brand new. Anyway have any thoughts on this idea?

I really like the idea, if you get lots of people interested.

It would suck if you only get a half dozen people involved.

Keep, in mind when I say friends, facefriends are many times just someone you know. Had a hi powered realtor send me a friend request this week, planning on meeting with him next week. I can't help but think this is a way to get my name out there in a fun way. That being said I can imagine what kind of disaster project room I may have to paint, lol! Maybe several of us could try it and compare notes!

Planning on putting a 25 mile radius on contest entries, that should cover 95% of the folks on my site.

You could offer a shirt, gift card, hat, something you can mail. That way anyone can participate, it is the friends of friends that is the beauty of it. Also the fact that your biz page is searchable, having lots of friends and activity shows a little better.
I saw a contest where a business posted a picture of a local spot and had people guess where it was. Got a lot of responses!
You should also have your facebook page url on every electronic signature, email, website, here!

Still trying to figure out the logistics, the best way for fans to vote, download pics, and how to keep up with the contest. Was thinking 30 days to enter, then a week to vote. Any ideas how to make this successful?

This application gives you the ability to attach a vote feature to photos (or so it says). I've never used it, give it a try.

Sales:

I have been wracking my brain on this. In my mind it has become a large event with submissions to both a "junk email" and a local paint distributor. Followed with press releases to the local news agencies.

Am working on the rules now. (must be a U.S. citizen, 18 years or older, permission to use names and photos, radius, not a "total room re-build" the list goes on and on)

Will likely never do this, but am having fun thinking about the possiblities.
