15 grand buys an awful lot of honey and nuts! So, even being space-bar-challenged (Look Ma! No thumbs!) is not a problem. Email Marketing Bear tweeted me yesterday to let me know he’s in for the Constant Contact Developer Challenge. I’m guessing he’s going to go for the mobile category because he’s always on the move, but we’ll have to see what (cough) develops.
The Constant Contact Developer Challenge gives developers a chance to enter applications in mobile, social and content management categories. Each category winner walks away with a first prize of 5k and one best of show entry nets a bonus of 10k! There’s also other cool swag such as iPads to win.
I guess the Constant Contact Developer Challenge is pretty much wide open to mammals. I’ll take the bear’s word for it, I’m not about to read the whole rule page (but you should if you plan to enter) just to be sure. Even if I did, who’s going to tell a freaking bear he can’t sign up?
If you win the $15,000 and you can’t think of what to splurge on, here are five things the bear would do with 15k:
1. Buy some AC for the cave.
2. Buy a list. Eat it. And then leave a flaming bag on a spammer’s doorstep.
3. Start my own clothing line “Email-ican Apparel.”
4. Take one lucky lady bear out for a raucous & permission-based night on the town.
5. Finally buy season tickets to the Memphis Grizzlies.
To enter the contest, just go to: www.constantcontact.com/developerchallenge
