End of the Firepole Marketing Scavenger Hunt


Five weeks ago I blogged about the Firepole Marketing Great Online Marketing Scavenger Hunt here). The hunt finishes today. I couldn't do everything I wanted, as I've been unwell, but I did manage to complete a lot of the challenges. It's been fun, but, as they promised, I've learned a lot.

They promised: If you start and stick it through, by the end of the hunt – even if you don’t win a prize – you will have expanded your reach online, made new connections, deepened existing relationships, learned new skills and generally leveled up your business.

I've gained 7 blog followers and 45 new Twitter followers, and made some friends. I've had my blog critiqued by several people, and revamped my About page. I finally got to grips with finding free images online that I don't have to worry about using. I've had some writing practice and some researching practice.

But I think the greatest reward I've had is to bite the bullet and actually GET ON WITH IT, and that's worth a great deal to me. Thank you Firepole Marketing. Whatever my points score, I'm a winner.
