And the winner is …

It’s time to announce the winner of the Social Media Success Summit 2010 competition!

We had hundreds of people enter, and there was an enormous amount of excitement and buzz around the competition. I hope you enjoyed it. To everyone who did not win, well there is always next year!

(The competition was viewed 5,764 times via 171 sources, with 85 comments and, depending on which count you go by, over 1,300 Tweets or maybe more!)

Dave Thackeray wins the grand prize of two tickets because we agreed his challenge summed up a great social media challenge. A lot of the time we get caught up in worrying about the tool-du-jour without looking at the big picture, so the quote really stood out and was well put:

“My biggest social media challenge is dropping the megaphone and working with it to listen, to build incredible rapport and dynamite customer relationships.”

The random Twitter prize selected using Random.org and TwapperKeeper goes to @MatthewCooney.

Congratulations both and thank you to everyone who took part!

  9. I love the idea of a contest based around social media. Will you be doing another one again any time soon?

  11. Well, I agree – Dave sums it up EXACTLY for me!!!

  13. Wow! I'm absolutely gobsmacked.

    Thanks so much for empathising with that challenge of mine. I really do believe that community is so 'little 'c'' right now, with the biggest rewards ripe for those who put people front and centre of all their social media strategies.

    Whether we think we do now, or whether we hope we will, soon, the truth is that noone really ties together the very best of marketing with the very best of resonating with human emotion through social media to create a truly unbeatable strategy for online success.

    But it's coming. And sooner than later, if the Summit can work its magic on me.

    Thanks Chris, and the rest of the pack for voting me in. And thanks commentors for allying with my cause celebre!
