Eight Small Business Owners Win a Netbook and Infusionsoft Subscription
Gilbert, Ariz. - July 24, 2009- Infusionsoft, the leader in automatic follow-up software with the famous ?Double Your Sales? guarantee for entrepreneurs, concluded a Twitter contest this week awarding eight people with a Netbook and year-long subscription to Infusionsoft?s software. Infusionsoft also hosted an Infusionsoft trivia contest via Twitter with additional prizes of iTunes gift cards and a business card scanner. The Twitter contest was organized immediately following the new pricing and free trial offer announced on July 7 and is part of Infusionsoft?s line up of news and activities in celebration of Entrepreneur Independence Month.
The Infusionsoft Twitter contest asked entrepreneurs to tweet updates describing how their business would benefit from being able to easily follow up with customers and prospects using a Netbook and Infusionsoft?s Web-based automatic follow-up software. Twitter is a global online network that allows users to post 140 character status updates, or ?tweets,? and subscribe to ?follow? other user?s updates, while Netbooks are small, ultra portable laptops that make it easy to connect to the Web from anywhere. From Monday, July 13 until Monday, July 20 the Twittersphere was inundated with passionate tweets from small business owners explaining how they would take advantage of the Infusionsoft prize.
"This was Infusionsoft's first Twitter contest and it was a way to make a difference for those who were interested in our service," said Joseph Manna, community and social media expert for Infusionsoft. "We had the opportunity to truly connect with people who care about what we do and we seized it. Best of all, we saw how people would benefit from better organization, time savings and increased sales, which is the heart of Infusionsoft?s purpose to liberate and empower entrepreneurs."
Entrepreneur winners of the Infusionsoft Twitter Netbook contest included an attorney, a historian and two auto-related businesses, among others:
Gil Shuga, Law Office of Gil Shuga
Michelle Hill, Hill County Historians
Michelle Randolph, Gold Force Administration Support
Clint Berry, Mango Marketing
Steve Haase, ThoughtLead
Terry Reiling, Reiling Automotive
Tim Welch, Lidtke Motors
"Thank you to all who participated in our first ever Twitter contest," said Clate Mask, co-founder and CEO of Infusionsoft. "We look forward to seeing how Infusionsoft helps these eight entrepreneurs grow their businesses."
