As you all know, we are in full swing of celebrating our 1 Year Anniversary of #PMChat and we are ready to kick it into high-gear on the give-aways. As mentioned last week, stay engaged with the community because you never know when a Trivia question will pop-up. We have had some tremendous support from so many folks and prizes include books, IPM buttons, t-shirts, blankets, a conference voucher ($2,395 value) and a virtual class ($795 value)!
One item of support that is available to everyone in the #PMChat community (without competing or signing-up) comes from our friends over at ProjectWorld…a 20% discount on their upcoming PW&WCBA 2012 event in Orlando, Fl on September 10-12th. You can use the following code up to onsite registration to receive the discount: PW12PMCHAT
What Rob and I are really excited for are the #PMChat Olympics! Think of this as an online/social media scavenger hunt, in which we will provide a series of tasks you must complete in order to win one of the awesome prizes! Don’t worry…even if this is the first time you have heard of #PMChat, you still have just as good a chance at bringing home one of the prizes.
Rob and I are not lawyers, so the rules below are more of a set of guidelines and no prize can be redeemed for cash value. This is all meant for us to have some fun, connect, and celebrate a great year of collaboration.
- To be eligible, prior to next week’s release of ‘Let the Games Begin’, you must tweet a link to this very blog post and say “I am competing in the free #PMChat Olympics, on Aug 16th, for a chance to win prizes worth up to $2,395 USD – Join me & read this (insert link) #pmot”…several posts may result in a prize ;D
- On August 16th at 11:30 AMEST, I will publish a blog post called “Let The Games Begin” with the exact task list you must complete. This should be a fair time for our audience…plus we are providing notice here.
- Upon completion, you must email [email protected] stating that you have completed all the tasks in the #PMChat Olympics…give us your name, location/address, and Twitter handle.
- On August 17th, Rob and I will announce the winners (1st Place & Runner-Up) live during the #PMChat Pre-Game Show….be sure to tune in via KPS Chatter on BlogTalkRadio
- If anything is unclear, please contact Rob or I…links to us are all over the place!

#PMChat is a vendor-neutral community in which we have all come to respect one another and limit the promotion of our companies and their products and/or services. However, as mentioned last week, we have been supported by some great folks for this anniversary special. One of those folks is PMCentersUSA, our Premier Sponsor for this celebration. We hope you will connect with them on Twitter
