My contest (hosted by Brick and Click Consulting) is winding down, and today's the day to put aside a few minutes, put your creative cap on and come up with a brand idea, slogan, jingle, poem ... just about anything related to Coca-Cola or one of its products you can dream of. Simply register at OceanOfIdeas.com, look for the confirmation e-mail, click the link, then submit your entry. You can add a picture, document or video link, or make it very simple and do a 'roses are red' type poem (I did a sample one). It's all about a little fun in your week and some creative 'consumer generated idea generation'. It's also a geat opportunity to showcase your talents. You never know who might be taking a peek, like the folks at Coke headquarters in Atlanta (you need to visit their blog, a nostalgic trip down memory lane each day, chock full of Americana: Coca-Cola Conversations).
Check a previous post for details on the prizes I'm offering. Grand Prize winner gets some great Coke gear, months worth of carbonated beverages, and a Webforce Open Innovation platform license (the platform the contest is on), worth about $6,000. Six grand. Your own consumer generated idea platform to play with or integrate into your business as you choose. Two runners up will receive some cool gear, beverages and a Premium Open Innovation Challenge on Fellowforce.com's global crowdsourcing platform (value $495).
If a minimum number of entries is not reached (details at OceanOfIdeas.com), the contest may be extended one more week. Voting will extend several days beyond the deadline for contest submissions. You're encouraged to spread the word about this (and your entry!) to your social networks and friends and family. Folks can register and vote even if they don't have an entry submission. Thanks for playing along with my Social Media/Open Innovation contest ... it's a small way for me to share some of the wonderful experience I enjoyed in Atlanta recently as the winner of Coke's 'Experiencing Coca-Cola Sweepstakes'. You don't have to love Coke as much as I do to enter the contest. But hey, why not enter the Coke contest and a have a asmile today :-)
