How to supercharge your marketing with a competition
The concept is simple:
Each department brings in a jar that they will fill up with pennies.
Each penny is worth 1 point.
Department with the most points wins. (Yawn)
But there’s a twist, and it’s the twist that makes it fun.
If you put a dime in the other department’s jar, it knocks off 10 points from their total.
Put in a nickle and it knocks off five points.
So not only do you have the fun a increasing your own score a penny at a time, but you can decrease your competition a nickel or dime at a time.
In a large environment (public auction / charity) with big egos, this could be done with $20, $50, and $100 dollar bills.
I care less about winning than not allowing someone to embarrass me by doing better.
