Hello, everyone. You know me as a digital marketing SEO consultant and the founder of Internet marketing blog BloggersIdeas. I am also a participant of Social Stock Contest. I joined the competition about a year ago, when the campaign was only launched. And you know what?

While spreading the word about the competition within my online community I managed to generate 500 sales within one year. I was about to exchange my points for Macbook Pro when I learned that the competition got extended.

So, I decided to keep on collecting sales to win the top prizes.

I enjoy helping people. One of my biggest dreams was to launch a blog where I could share my knowledge and experience with other users who are interested to discover all the things related to running online marketing campaigns and optimizing web content in a way that brings your site the top positions in search rankings.

So, I launched BloggersIdeas and started to share publications on blogging, SEO, Mobile SEO, Social Media Optimization, eCommerce SEO, and WordPress.
I am an active social media user. I have accounts on literally every social media platform imaginable. My Twitter follower base makes up more than 11,000 users. On Google+, I am connected to more than 4,000 users. On Pinterest, more than 800 users are interested in keeping track of my boards. So, when I heard about Social Stock contest, I didn’t hesitate to join the competition and started sharing my unique promo-code among my followers, friends and partners.

How I Joined the Competition

Step 10

That’s it. You have shared your first Social Spock post on Facebook.

You can do the same on any different social media platform. Your Social Stock profile page will include the possibility to share memes, banners, pre-written texts, and other fun content featuring your own promo-code on Twitter, Google+, Instagram, and Pinterest.

There is no need to spend hours looking for the places where you can get the most appropriate and catchy designs for your social media posts. Just grab what’s been already done for you and keep on notifying your social media followers about the unique opportunity to save 10% on any TemplateMonster theme with your promo-code.

The more active you are the bigger chances to generate more sales you’ll have.
Your Social Stock toolbox will also include pre-written texts for personal emails, which you can send directly from your profile page. According to my own experience, social media posts engage the online community far better than personal correspondence.

According to the stats that I saw after each time I shared a meme on my social media accounts, people were twice more likely to make a purchase compared to the numbers that I saw after sending out emails.
To cut a long story short, I’ve been actively participating in the contest for more than 1 year. Currently, I have 500+ promo-code usages, which is enough to get a Macbook Pro or $5000 on PayPal. I was about to exchange my points for cash when I heard the news about a shifted deadline of the competition.

That’s when I decided that I have big chances to win Harley Davidson Street or even Tesla! I hope that 2017 will be as fortunate as 2016. 😉
In the end of my Social Stock case study, I would like to wish good luck to all participants. For those of you who are still not in, I recommend to register straight away.

Just imagine, you do not need to invest a single dollar to compete for such cool prizes. You do not even need to do any writing or designing job. Everything is done for you. Just register, share, and earn more sales!
Good luck!
