Today was a whole, free, extra day we didn’t have last year. I hope everyone took advantage and lived today to their fullest potential.
Leap Day is a perfect opportunity to leap into the senior photo season for all of you lucky members of the Class of 2013!
To help launch the fun, let’s have a little contest. Last year I tried to give away an iPod nano. Apparently they aren’t in demand as much as I thought they were, or (more likely) I didn’t reach enough people with my message because my contest didn’t go very far. I say “more likely” because it couldn’t possibly be that I was mistaken … right? Well, just in case it turns out that I was wrong (maybe I’m the only one left in the world who doesn’t have an iPod already?), leave some prize suggestions in the comments below (keeping in mind that I will not spring for a new car as your graduation present, okay?). For now, I’m operating under the assumption that an iPod nano is still a good prize and I really want to give one away.
Here’s how it’s going to work:
The goal is to book (and actually hold) 13 or more senior photo sessions by September 30. Any senior who participates will get their name in a drawing for an iPod nano, which will come loaded with the high-resolution image files from their senior session. To make the deal a little more rosy, anyone who books their appointment by Friday, April 13, will also be eligible to win a $25 iTunes gift card (in a separate drawing), AND (imagine this announcement coming from my best radio personality voice) anyone who holds their appointment by Friday, July 13, will double their chance of winning the iPod when I throw their name into the hat a second time.
Fun, right?! Who wouldn’t leap at the opportunity to win with those odds? To be clear, I will only be giving away the iPod nano if I hold a minimum of 13 sessions. The separate drawing for the iTunes gift card will be held April 13 from the names of those who have booked their session and the prize will be delivered on your photo day (unless it has already taken place, in which case, I’ll be in touch!). This prize is not contingent on a specific number of participants.
I offer two different sessions for seniors. Details for each are located on my “Seniors and such” page. For the purposes of this contest, I will accept either type of booking. Scroll all the way to the bottom to make sure you see how I treat nice people who share.
Would you like even more ways to increase your odds of winning? [Your response is: “Yes, please tell me more!”] Great, I’m glad you asked. For each of the following you complete, I will add your name to the grand-prize drawing an additional time. (Listen guys, I’m trying to make this as easy as possible. I want to give away a prize, okay?!)
1. “Like” CLG Photography’s Facebook page, located here: www.facebook.com/clgdigitalimages
2. Share this announcement with your friends. Link to this post on your own wall and send everyone over to visit me here. Once you do, come back and leave the link to your page in the comments below with a note like, “I shared your Leap Day announcement here: … ” or just something random like, “My favorite color nano is…”
3. Post a photo of yourself playing leap frog with your friends.
Ha! Just kidding on that last one. For real on the first two, though.
Who’s going to jump in with both feet? All we need is one awesome-sauce senior (with 12 savvy friends) to make the leap and get this joint jammin'! Hop to it, gang!
Not a senior? I bet you know someone who is. Share this with them!
Finally, because blog posts are boring without photos, I leave you with this Instagram photo of my desktop assistant.
This contest is sponsored by me, myself, and I. Apple doesn’t know I exist.
