My #YourHuffTweet via The Huffington Post Was Winning Tweet!

Can any of your Social Media Marketing connections say they were RT’d by the @HuffingtonPost?? Probably NOT! 😀

I won a #socialmedia #publicrelations contest hosted by the Huffington Post on Twitter!! I feel affirmed by the news website, as someone who loves social media and is astute in public relations — my aptitude has been proven!

So how and what did I win? Quite simple. The Hufftington Post put out a tweet asking its followers the following:

HuffingPostTweet Contest

So I decided to participate… I thought this would be fun, a great way to sharpen my skills and a chance to get RT’d by The Huffington Post. RT = Retweeted: Is a great way to show appreciation for someone’s content, it’s re-publishing something another Twitter user has written.

What makes this contest so great is The Huffington Post hardly ever RT’s anyone, and if it does; they ONLY RT their other Huffington Post aggregate sites (i.e. HuffPostBiz, HuffPostComedy etc. and editors). So that’s why I’m so excited!! They received 100’s of  entries amid their 2.6 million followers and I WON! I had the winning tweet.

HuffingPostTweet Contest (Winner)

Later that evening I checked my twitter — I saw a host of RT’s from others, acquired new followers, acquired favorites of the tweet — I was ecstatic! Feels good to know you’re really good… enough to get a shout from The Huffington Post 🙂

Dinner With the President Contest

I would absolutely love to meet President Obama. The closest that I ever came is when he was running in 2008, and I attended one of his Wisconsin town hall meetings (Wisconsin is an important State to win). What if I won? …what would I say to the Commander in Chief? I whole lot, if I actually thought about it. On second thought, I wouldn’t waste my time with the President on political rhetoric – – about what he could be doing. But on third thought, that would be the opportune time! But on fourth thought….lol I have my opnions, as does the rest of the country, and this would be my moment to spend. – – On final thought, I would have a few poignant questions..LOL! It is a goal of mine to meet the President and Michelle 🙂

In addition, this is an effective fundraising strategy…people really want to sit and meet with him, and if donating an amount as diminutive as $5 – $10 can get me a meeting with the President…I’d do it! 🙂
