And tons more stuff!!
So back in early 2008, we launched a HARO day – Essentially, we asked everyone to make all of their status updates the following: “Get sourced, get quoted, get famous: http://helpareporter.com”
And people did it in droves!
It’s time to do it again!
But this time, we have prizes!
The reason HARO has been as successful as it has is due to two things: 1) It’s helpful to you. 2) Because it’s helpful, you like telling people about it. So we’re gonna ask you to do it again.
On Thursday, April 15th, 2010, we’re going to ask you to donate your status to HARO. Simply make your social media status (on whatever or how many platforms you use,) to the following:
That’s it. For one day, that’s your status update.
Then, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a screenshot of your update. We’ll take the 100th, 200th, etc., all the way to 10,000th email we get, and send a t-shirt or some other fun HARO swag to you.
We’ll also choose four updates at random, and two will each get brand a new iPad, one will get a brand new iPod, one will get a brand new ScotteVest, and another will get a gorgeous backpack from Ogio! And yes, we’ll have more stuff to give away, too!
We think that’s worth donating your status for a bit, huh? Let’s see if we can be as organic as we were two years ago.
Finally, we’ll take all the screenshots we got, and make a massive compilation of them so you can try and find yours.
It’s our way of saying thank you for using HARO – and helping us grow.
So that’s this Thursday. As always, thank you for using HARO – We love you! 🙂
