"People understand contests. You take a bunch of kids throwing rocks at random and people look askance, but if you go and hold a rock-throwing contest - people understand that." Don Murray
Dear GlobalRisk Community member,
We are pleased to announce our first .
Creation of a viral Video or another media creative about GlobalRisk Community. The aim is to create a short and powerful video with a link to http://globalriskcommunity.com which we can put on YouTube. In this video of about 30sec-1,5 minutes you will tell a story about benefits of being a member of GlobalRisk community and some of your experience so far with the community. Your video needs to be funny or amazing or remarkable or have some fascinating information or be controversial. Basically the video needs a reason for people to pass it on.
The winner of the contest will get a very valuable price –1 press pass ($2095 is the price for an ordinary ticket only) to one of the most prestigious annual events in the Hedge Fund Industry – the Hedge Fund Compliance summit which will take place on Nov 15-16th at Princeton Club, New York City. Please have a look at the link to see the programme and impressive list of speakers. GlobalRisk community is a proud media partner of this major event.
The conditions of the content are simple: you make a viral story: either a small film that can be placed on YouTube about the GlobalRisk Community where you tell an interesting story about the benefits of being a member. You can also provide us with another media story which can go viral, for example an article in a major publication, a press release that went viral and so forth. The main criteria is that you are telling Your story about GlobalRisk Community and the story should be interesting and may be funny enough to attract the large audience to visit our site.
Some background of my thoughts. I already know that the membership in the GlobalRisk Community has changed for good lives of at least several people: - some found business partners, some found employment, some found a new client and some just visit our site regularly to read last news, posts and share information. I have not heard yet about marriages been started via our site, but the number of friend requests is very high indicating that the community is really connecting peers and colleagues around the globe. Moreover we are not only business, but a social network too, so if the community helped you in social aspect, you can point it out at your story.
Our membership growth, the content quality that our members provide make a web-traffic to our website envy of the major media companies who are in business for many years. Well, we are living in the time of WEB 2.0, so even a small entrepreneur can make a difference now running a community website for people who want to expand their horizons, connect and being connected.
