Yesterday we began our two-part blogging year in review looking at the various pieces we did about the consumer testing industry in general, and MindField Online in particular. Today, let’s recall the ways we reached out to panelists like YOU!
We announced fun cash and prize giveaways, like
- Facebook Milestone! We gave away six iPod Shuffles, and four iPhone 3GS when we hit 1,000 Facebook fans
- Big Prize Drawing! We gave away another stack of fun Apple products, including an iPad, last holiday season
- MindField’s 10,000 Facebook Fan Giveaway! We gave away ten $100 prizes when we hit 10,000 Facebook fans!
- Our Biggest Drawing EVER! Coming this December, MindField’s gonna “make it rain” with $2500 in cash prizes. Like the title says, our biggest ever!
And when we reached those milestones and held the drawings, we featured the names, pictures and bios of as many of the winners as we could:
- Congrats, Lucky Apple Winners!
- Year-end Apple Drawing Winners (Finally!)
- Meet the Winners:10K Facebook Fan Giveaway!
Early on, we reached out to long-time members and asked them to tell their stories:
- Meet the Panelists: Falicia , a single mom from FLA with 3 young boys
- Meet the Panelists: Molly , a stay-at-home wife from FLA with health issues, who is a fully wired web genius and a fan of MindField
We really wanted to do more of these, but we found that people are generally shy about too much attention.
Meanwhile, we began collecting satisfied members’ comments on Facebook. Back when we had about 5,000 fans, we made a blog post with a bunch of these comments. We kept updating them about every month or so, and finally decided they needed their own page. We update the Panelist Reviews page monthly, and it’s coming up next week!
Well, that’s the year in review! Thanks for everything, MindField Online friends and family…and stay tuned!
