Our Challenge to You

HP Officejet Pro 8500 All-in-One series

Wouldn’t you love to win this?

So we’re launching a new contest — but we’re calling it a challenge.

A group of us at REALTOR® Magazine have joined with a group from HP for “The Marketing Makeover: Stage Your Business for Success.” The REALTOR® who wins will receive a prize package worth $4,000, including that printer on the left. Even though we all communicate electronically now, we’re far from being able to do without our printers. So we were enthused about the ideas of teaming up with HP to demonstrate what effective print marketing looks like.

For this challenge, we’re looking for five REALTORS® who are committed to improving their print marketing. To be considered for the challenge, fill out an official entry form online by Wednesday, Dec. 30, 2009. From the eligible entries received, we’ll choose five challenge participants based on composition of their entry, creativity of the entry, and adherence to the essay topic. All five will receive $1,000 prize packages, including the HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-in-One Printer, inkjet cartridges, and a credit toward marketing resources through Marketsplash by HP.

During a six-week challenge period that follows, the five participants will use their new equipment and resources and will post weekly updates at a special contest blog. The grand prize winner will be determined in March by the judges and by public voting at the blog. Are you up for the challenge?
