Posted in: Easypromos news

Are you giving the award for your digital promotion enough attention?

We are in the digital promotions business, so we already suspected that prizes were a core component to running an effective campaign.  But when 48% of participants stated that the prize is the most important consideration – as in, if they do not like the prize, they will not participate – we were glad we asked.

So, to keep this article on an even keel, and to avoid any distracting detours, I’ll focus on the example of a project I set up in 2005 called nuestraporra.com.

multi-language promotions

Posted in: Easypromos news

In a great many regions around the world, while everyone may speak the national language, the language they consider to be “native” is different.  For example, in Easypromo‘s home country of Spain, while the majority of our countrymen may speak Spanish, in many cases, Spanish is not most people’s first or “native” language.  Many of us here in the Barcelona area have been raised speaking Catalan, for example, and in the north Basque and Galician, and so on.  Further, many of our residents prefer to speak their native tongue over Spanish.

I saw it in a flea market and knew I had to make it mine!” And, as the saying goes, the rest is history.
