Need an example of actions communicating louder than words?I was at a minor league hockey game last night. I’ve been around hockey for a minimum of 50 years, playing and watching. In a freak instance, a gamers stick was flung into the stands, and a fan caught it. Granted, sticks can cost up to $300 at the present time but, the team had the nerve to send down a team official to take the stick back. The crowd booed for a minimum of 5 minutes.
Considering the home team was down 2 goals, the gamers had to wonder why they could be trying their toughest to win after they were getting a gradual raspberry. Would a advertising and marketing centric company dare to ask for the stick back?But, it can have real effect to the winners and the losers. The winner get’s bragging rights and probably a company bump. The losers all get ticked off. Next thing you know, you’ve lost a subscriber, a reader, or admire from the pizza aficionados who really know pizza all as the contest wasn’t really a competition, but a popularity contest and with internet voting, for probably the most part a very imperfect system that may and may be gamed. Bragging rights for pizza is something, but a contest for a hybrid school bus takes this to an alternate level.
This is a real prize and required the scholars to invest time in creating a video/murals to compete. Now, you’ve asked for free labor crowd sourced creative and then left the “judging” up to whomever can rig the system best.
