The Home Staging Talent Contest is open to all participants, not just Home Stagers, and will provide everyone an opportunity to demonstrate their skills, learn, share, gain recognition, pick up some quality links and possibly be declared a Challenge Winner or The Overall Grand Prize Winner.
At this time, there have already been over 15,000 Views and 5,000 Clicks for The Home Staging Talent Contest related posts (Not including Re-blogs and activity on each participant's individual posts). This contest offers tremendous opportunities for All Participants to gain recognition.
With 24,900,000 Monthly Global Google searches for "Halloween" the benefit of having a timely timeless post connected to the keyword "Halloween" is undeniable. This Holiday Related Challenge will require the creation of a post that attaches Home Staging (165,000 Monthly Searches) to Halloween.
As it relates to the home, Trick or Treat typically takes place at the front door. Therefore, this challenge is to stage an entry which includes the front door. The inside, outside or both may be part of the Final Presentation. The colors to be used must be Holiday or Seasonal appropriate. Remember, this is not a Halloween Decorating Contest, it's a Home Staging Challenge.
This Challenge will test your ability to stage within limits and for practical purposes. Real Estate Agents and Buyers often begin to form opinions about a home while standing at the front door.
Winners will be selected based upon the appearance of their completed Project and their Post. Before and After Photos may be used, however, Before Photos are not a requirement. (See instructions below)
A post must be written for each challenge and a link to each challenge entry must be included in the comment section of the appropriate challenge.
Home Staging and similar beneficial keywords should be used to connect with likely search terms submitted to Google. Titles and content should be intended for CONSUMERS. No reference to a Contest should be made in any qualifying post. Each post is for the benefit of the participant, as it will relate to future client appeal.
There will be 3 winners for each of 5 Challenges plus an Overall Winner. No 1st, 2nd or 3rd place winners will be identified for any single challenge, however The Overall Winner will be identified. The same participant may be declared a Winner in more than one Challenge.
Each of the 3 winners for any Challenge will be featured in a Special Post highlighting their accomplishment. This post will include a picture and links to their profile, selected Website and/or Blog. These posts will be syndicated on Twitter, LinkedIn, Google + and other appropriate sites.
The prize for all Challenges is recognition and increased online exposure for The Winners. ALL Participants in each Challenge will also be acknowledged.
The Overall Grand Prize will be announced with Challenge 3. Eligibility for this award requires participation in at least 3 of the 5 Challenges. Theoretically, this would be the participant that a Consumer would select based upon their overall performance, professionalism and presentation.
