COMPANIES V/S POLITICIANS

Companies are spending lot of money on their internet Marketing. The important part of their Sales promotion is Online Contests and Quiz. The trend is now decade old but it still works; as people like to win such contests and get those prizes without much efforts. To increase the number of participants in such contests or quiz, very easy questions are asked and the prizes are very attractive. Ohh no no, I am not discussing anything about MARKETING here (For that I have separate Blog on Marketing). I am sharing my experiences of winning ;)
Generally I don't participate in Online contests so often because I know that it's just a data collection method of marketers. But thanks to DND services and new rules by TRAI that I give my mobile numbers to such companies (by filling contest entry forms) without any hesitation. SPAM filter is useful to avoid their mails in your Inbox. So no need to fear of Marketing calls anymore. Perhaps thats the reason I have won some fantastic stuffs in recent last two years. I do want to mention their company names here (Ethics of a Marketing professional :p).
In one of the contest from SMIRNOFF on Facebook I won head phone of i-Ball. 'Make my trip's contest gave me chance to make my own desktop calender (With my photographs i.e.customized) from 'Zoom In' website. Then in Facebook's contest during World Cup I won head wrap and two days back I got KFC's Temptation Voucher (as free MEAL voucher). In short companies do keep their promises. Thank God, they are not like politicians who broke all their promises even after getting votes ;)
(OK, I know you have understood that I wanted to share about stuffs won by me in different online contests so I wrote this post. Ha Ha Ha ;) , Keep Visiting WoD...)
