Write a mailing list simple list of instructions or criteria, and keep it short. 2. Start tweeting, mentioning in your blog and ezine, that something big is coming....hint at the value of the prizes and the date the competition will launch. Do this every day from now until the end of the competition.
3. Set up a YouTube account / channel if you don't have one and link it to your website. Either upload some existing video, or favourite some that are relevant to your target market. 4. Set up a blog post explaining the competition, the prizes and tease mailing list your readers with anticipation. Add an email signup box to capture the "eager beavers" and start segmenting the potential entrants.
