That barrel full of monkeys known in the email marketing biz as MailChimp, has once again stepped outside the monkey bars to show just how creative you can be with a contest! We love the marketing for this (the video and grapics are priceless!) and we thought it deserved a tip of our (staying with their theme) bowler hat. Great stuff!
Design and code an email template using MailChimp’s HTML template language, and send them the code along with a screenshot of the design. They’ll pick 3 winners and belt them — belt as in way cool wrestling belt and money.
These folks have a rep for being creative and coming up with stand-out creative advertising for themselves and this is another example of a great approach to marketing themselves and their features — in this case, their HTML template design language.
Between April 5 and 30, you can submit your deisgn (in a zip file) and a screenshot (jpg). On May 14, they will award the top three Throwdown Contenders with a custom-made Championship Belt and $600 and the winner’s entry will be added to the MailChimp library.
