This is our last blog post before we take our summer blogging break, but, we don’t want you to stop thinking about marketing during ice cream season, so, we have decided (thanks to a little nudge from clever old Alice Jennings) to run a competition between now and September!

This competition will give you the chance to stretch the grey cells during your holiday AND win an hour’s free marketing consultation PLUS a £50 John Lewis voucher!

I know! Exciting!

We know that our readers love our Marvellous Marketing Spotter’s Guides. So, we’ve decided to enlist your help as a Marvellous Marketing Spotter.

To take part in the competition, all you need to do is keep an eye out for Marvellous Marketing while you are out and about on your travels, and then, let us know what you find.

In case you need a reminder of what we are looking for – or some catch-up reading, here are some links to some of our Marvellous Marketing Spotter’s Guides:

Don’t worry, you don’t need to write a blog post for us (but do take a couple of photos if you get the chance!)

Just fill out this form to enter the competition and we’ll choose our favourite entry in September.

The closing date for the competition is Friday 20th September, and our decision will be final. We will announce the winner in The Drawing Board (that’s our once a week email, packed to the brim with marketing advice. Sign up here if you don’t already receive it!) on Wednesday 25th September. Full terms and conditions are available in the ‘notes’ section of our Facebook page.

The winner will receive a £50 John Lewis Voucher, a free marketing PowerHour (if you don’t know what that is, here’s a link) with either Sian or me – depending on what you’d like marketing advice on – AND we’ll write up your ‘spot’ as an article on our site and include a link to your website (if you have one. If you don’t, you know where to come!).

So, get cracking, and remember to enjoy your summer, we’ll be back on the 11th of September.
