The contest encourages professional cleaners and restorers to post one of their best marketing ideas that have worked for their company on the HydraMaster Facebook page, the release stated.
According to the release, all entrants receive a free "HydraMaster – Performance Comes Standard" T-shirt; there are also prizes for the top three entries that range from a $500 gift card to a free spotting machine.
Contest entries can be presented in written form or a video uploaded to the HydraMaster Facebook page, the release noted.
Doyle Bloss, marketing and brand manager for HydraMaster, said, "One of the things we thought about as our customers continue to push ahead in a difficult economy is how we could do something tangible to provide assistance. Good marketing ideas from their peers, that are proven to work in the present economy, were something we thought just about every cleaning and restoration professional could use to continue to grow their business. The contest is kind of like having a free, open roundtable discussion online, that you can access at your convenience."
The contest will start May 1, 2012 and run through July 31, 2012, with the winning entries being chosen by a three-judge panel, the release added.
