Twitter Give Away Continues

First, I would like to say thank you to everyone who has participated in the GEMaffair.com Xmas Jewelry Give Away on Twitter.

We’ve had an amazing response from all of the entrants, have gotten to know many of you much better and were even mentioned by the National Jeweler Network. In the end, we had 27 winners and about 700 entries.  That’s roughly 25 entries per win, which, I am proud to say, is much better than most contests or sweepstakes on the web because we think a “Give Away” should be exactly that.

In fact, we’ve been having so much fun doing this, that we’re going to keep going.  As I’ve tweeted several times, each week I will announce that it’s a “Contest Day.”  The day of the week will vary, so there’s no way to really tell.  Watch us closely, I might even give you a heads up on the time of the day I will be holding the contest.  Then BAM!  I’ll give the go, and you can simply RT to enter!  Since we want this to be fun and fair, we’ll up the number of winners if there are more entrants.  The prizes, as they did in the Christmas Give Away, will vary from week to week.

I’m really thrilled to make this a part of our company.  We’re eager to do things to make the online community more positive, fun, and interactive.  If you have any other ideas, please let me know!  And as always, if you have suggestions for the site, a story you’d like to tell, or just have a question about cleaning tarnished silver, give me a shout.  I’m off and on here and Twitter all day while running around the office taking pictures, replying to emails, writing articles, blogging, playing on Kaboodle (which is addictive), or processing new inventory.

Again, Thanks Tweeple.  You rock.

    Absolutely. There’s nothing worse than going to a blog that is having a “giveaway”, and finding 500+ or 2,000+ entries already. The odds of winning are far from good, so when the entries are smaller, it makes standing a chance of winning better, and more fun for the winners.

    I can’t wait to get mine! W00t!
