Gather Your Friends & Colleagues: Win a Hero Conf Ticket!

By Jamie Newton | @jnewton09 | Senior Communications Manager at Hanapin Marketing

Do you love nerding out on PPC and would jump at the chance to attend Hero Conf this year for free?

Pss..Answering yes or even “maybe” means there’s a cool contest for you. Yay!

You may or may not have heard by now that we’re holding a PPC Hero Summit on February 28th from 11am – 2pm. It’s going to be an awesome event with 6 actionable PPC sessions, specialized PPC experts, live Q&A on #ppcherosummit with multiple writers from the blog, and prizes! We hope you can make it!

As a kickoff to the Summit, we’re introducing a new contest where you can win a free ticket to Hero Conf. With a unique tracking link from us that you’ll share to your network, the person who accounts for the most summit signups will win a ticket to Hero Conf!

Cool right?


How do you do that?
So let’s say you really want to go, but your company just doesn’t haven’t the budget to send you. Ask them to help you promote via the tracking link. Ask you friends to support you and promote with your link. Ask your Mom…haha just kidding! Unless she’s into digital marketing, then you should totally ask her.

If you are already going to Hero Conf, whether as an attendee or a speaker, this would be a really good opportunity to help out a fellow PPCer. Maybe there’s someone else on your team that would love to go or there’s someone on Twitter you see commenting on PPC posts all the time, but they’ve never been to Hero Conf before – offer to help them get signups by promoting on your social channels with their link!

You can promote via social, your blog, email, podcast, webinar, however you think will help you get the most signups.

The contest runs from February 9th – 28th. Here’s what you need to do to participate:

  • Email and ask for a personalized tracking link for the PPC Hero Summit by February 8th.
  • Start using your unique tracking link on February 9th (not before – we won’t track it!)
  • Use it up until February 28th. We’ll send the winner an email after the Summit is over.
  • Also, you can get a tracking link at ANYTIME! The contest starts on the 9th, so if you want the full promotion time, get your link before then.

And that’s it! Any questions can be directed to the above email address. We’ll send out updates throughout the contest, so you know where you stand.

Good luck!
