Ringing and Singing in the Rain January Challenge

Ringing and Singing in the Rain


The New Year is time to meet new people and reconnect with others. The January Challenge is about making some phones calls and writing a post about what you learned. The best part is it will be fun and you will be glad you participated. 

Here are the rules and they are not that complicated. You may write 1, 2 or 3 posts. Each qualifying post will earn 750 points. If you write all 3 posts one of the posts is to be about a Newbie you called. A Newbie is described as someone that is new to ActiveRain within the last 6 months. Find a Newbie here. 

Make a phone call to an ActiveRain Member. This is the Ringing part of the Challenge. You have to actually talk to each other on the phone so keep trying until you connect. Now when you connect find out these 3 things:

  1. How is business in their area?
  2. What do they hope to accomplish in their business in 2016?
  3. What do they hope to achieve through ActiveRain in 2016?

 

After you have had your chat then write a blog post about your conversation including the answers to the 3 questions. This is the Singing part. Please put a photo of the person you talked with and a link to their blog or profile so we can get to know them too (this is not a requirement though).  Only the original caller gets to the contest points.

 

Once you post your link in the comment section below you will earn 750 contest points for each post you write up to 3 posts. Again, if you write 3, one post must be about the Newbie that you called. The other 2 can be about whomever you choose in the Rain. Chances are several people will call the same person and that is okay but make it more fun and think out of the box and call someone you don't know.

 

Patricia FeagerPatricia Feager, MBA, GRI, Cert Negotiations Expert, Military Relo Prof has agreed to help with the contest. Thanks Patricia. Post a link to your contest post in the comment section below after you have written your posts.

 

Ready to get started? The Challenge Ringing and Singing in the Rain starts January 1, 2015 and ends on January 31, 2016 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. Make sure you have put the links to your posts in the comment section below by the deadline time so you get your contest points.

 

There is the potential for earning 2250 points if you write all 3 posts and follow the rules.. The points for Ringing and Singing in the Rain January Challenge will be awarded sometime in February. 

 

Now start thinking, planning and get your dialing fingers ready. Make new friends in the Rain. Questions? Contact either me or Patricia.

Terrific idea for a contest Debbie. Of course, I found it on the last day and it's a bit late on a Sunday to be making any phone calls. (Plus I'm tired.) I'm doing my best to get reconnected in general on AR, so I've decided I'm going to do the ringing part of your challenge in February!

My third one was cut a bit short so I don't know if you want to award points for it, but would love everyone to meet Janna Scharf.  She isn't a newbie but because of the ringing and singing contest it gave me good reason to call her up and to let her know that I think she is a fanstatic agent.
