More Twitter Contests

More Twitter contests every day! Today, Macheist convinced me to buy their software bundle (12 programs for $39) by giving 25% to charity AND throwing in two additional programs in exchange for following them and tweeting about the deal. And, they promoted forwarding news to a friend by offering an additional 2 programs if a friend signs up.

As more companies turn to Twitter contests, the effectiveness will fall. But, for now, this could be an opportunity for associations and charities to partner with companies. They donate a percentage to your cause as an incentive to help close the sales… and in exchange, perhaps you promote the contest on your site and your Twitter feed.
