Last week I announced a free Content Success Summit pass giveaway. There were some really great entries. So many that I could not pick a winner. Also, I am a bit biased as I personally know a few of the people who entered.
Feel free to read all of the entries here.
So … I asked my wife (she’s an Ob/GYN – not in the content marketing world) to pick the winner.
I’m super-excited to announce the winner.
CONGRATS TO … MICHAEL CUNNINGHAM
Here what Michael “IronBacon” Cunningham’s comment:
I am requesting this free pass not so much for me, but for a marketing department that is hungry, and poised, to take a company beyond the comfortable corporate verbiage and into the realm of true content marketing and storytelling.
I work in a marketing department that is facing serious boredom. Okay, we’re not sitting around waiting for something to do, believe me, we’re working our asses off. But we’ve been doing the same put-your-head-down-and-get-the-project-done, insert marketing gobbldy-gook-here kind of marketing for years and we’re sick of it.
But an event like the Content Success Summit would be a great team building exercise that would light a fire under our collective asses to strive for greatness.
I want this free pass for my marketing department: A collection of talented and creative people who have gathered pitchforks and are ready to storm the ramparts of content marketing mediocrity. This seminar could be the spark that lights our torches to go along with our pitchforks and light our way to the castle.
Thanks for the opportunity, D.J. I think you’re the bee knees no matter what Nick Westergaard says about you behind your back.
As it turns out, Michael is a Hoosiers basketball fan. As a die-hard Michigan Wolverine (class of ’98!), it pains me a bit to give this free pass to an IU fan, but at least it stays in the Big 10. Also, I’ll be going to Bloomington to see my would-have-been-#1-Michigan-Wolverines beat Indiana on February 2. Go Blue.
(Michael – please DM me with your contact information so I can get you the free Content Success Summit pass)
Wait, There’s More!
The one bummer about giveaways like this is that there can only be one winner (I only had one free pass!). So, I figured I’d offer another chance to win something for free.
