I have a bunch of promotional laptop backpacks I purchased for Alagad taking up precious space in my garage. These are very nice swiss gear backpacks with the Alagad logo tastefully embroidered on the back pocket. They’ve got, I’d guess, a zillion pockets, lots of storage space, can fit a 17″ laptop, and are tough as heck. I’ve been using mine for a couple years and it still looks like new! I really want to give them away to good homes, but I’ve been struggling on how to best do this. Maybe you can help?
A few weeks ago I posted a contest where entrants would make a word search generator in an unfamiliar language. And, well, honestly, that went over like a lead balloon. I had precisely zero entrants. Maybe I made it a bit too complex?
I’d like to turn this into a game or a contest or something of the sort and have a little fun with it! Furthermore, a little promotional activity can’t hurt since it looks like Alagad will be winding up their current contract in April. (It’s never too early to be looking for the next gig.) If possible, it’d be really nice to be able to help people learn something new or, perhaps, help out those who are less fortunate, especially durring this time of year. Winners of these contests would get an Alagad backpack.
So, this time I’m having a contest to come up with ideas for contests, games, or whatever. If you have an idea on what I should do to give away these backpacks post it in the comments below. I’ll pick one or more of the ideas and run with them. If your idea is picked, you’ll get a very nice backpack for your troubles!
So, how should I give away these backpacks?
