Home Staging Talent Contest Guidelines


In preparation for The Home Staging Talent Contest
beginning on 10/1/2012, here are some general guidelines.  This will allow participants an opportunity to improve their chances of becoming one of the three winners for each Challenge and possibly The Overall Winner.
 

Guidelines and clarifications regarding The Contest

The Contest is open to everyone, whether or not you are a Home Stager.

                         The Challenges

Home Staging Sample 1

The scenario for every Challenge
is that a potential client has contacted the participant as one of several Home Stagers competing for an opportunity to stage a large number and variety of homes.  The consumer's final selection will be based upon what they are shown online by each participant.

#1: Introduction & Qualifications

#2: The Home Staging Halloween Connection

#3: Before and After Presentations

#4: The Home Staging Christmas Connection

#5: The Ultimate Challenge


Special Note: Google Global Monthly Searches for Halloween (24,900,000), Christmas (45,500,000), Home Staging (165,000) and Home Stager (14,800).  There's value in making a connection with these search terms.  One purpose of a Holiday Related Challenge is to create a timely timeless post that will benefit each participant, year after year.
 

The Posts

A post must be written for each challenge and a link to each challenge entry must be included in the comment section of the appropriate challenge.

Home Staging and similar beneficial keywords should be used to connect with likely search terms submitted to Google.  Titles and content should be intended for CONSUMERS.  No reference to a Contest should be made in any qualifying post.  Each post is for the benefit of the participant, as it will relate to future client appeal.

Home Staging Sample 3


                                                            The Winners

There will be 3 winners for each of 5 Challenges plus an Overall Winner.  No 1st, 2nd or 3rd place winners will be identified for any challenge, however The Overall Winner will be identified.  The same participant may be declared a Winner in more that one Challenge. 

The Prizes

Each of the 3 winners for any Challenge will be featured in a Special Post highlighting their accomplishment.  This post will include a picture and links to their profile, selected Website and/or Blog.  These posts will be syndicated on Twitter, LinkedIn, Google + and other appropriate sites.  The prize for All Challenges is recognition and increased online exposure for The Winners.  ALL Participants in each Challenge will also be acknowledged.  

The Overall Grand Prize will be announced with Challenge #3.  Eligibility for this award requires participation in at least 3 of the 5 Challenges.  Theoretically, this would be the participant that a Consumer would select based upon their Overall Performance, Skills, Experience, Style, Qualifications, References and Presentation.

Jerry, We can all improve the skills we have and learn a new skill every day, but the reality is when do we find the time.  ;-)  That's why The First Annual Home Staging Talent Contest will be self-serving to each participant. 

With the completion of each Challenge, a Business Related Post will be created to benefit each participant year after year.  If you're a Winner of any challenge, you'll also receive a great deal more online exposure and multiple links to YOU and YOUR sites.  Good luck and best wishes always to one of the busiest and more helpful people that I know.

Good Morning Gita, I'm very glad that you picked up on that significant part of The Contest.  In order to fully benefit all participants, each post needs to be self-serving and written solely for The Consumer.  Thank you for sharing and best wishes always.

Hi Silvia, I'm looking forward to The First Challenge and for The Contest to get started.  The Home Stagers are a terrific group of talented people that certainly know how to showcase their talents and skills. 

The Overall Winner of this contest will be selected from the perspective of a 'Consumer' based upon what they are shown online, as compared to all of the participants, which could include YOU.  Best wishes always.

Sally, Shar can be a bit intimidating, if you let her, but I see that you're not going to let her get away with it.  Good luck with that, and I'm very pleased to have both of you as participants in The First Annual Home Staging Talent Contest.  Best wishes always.
