The “I Share My Space” Coworking Video Contest is a Triple Threat

Posted on February 13, 2012 by sundaram in Conference, Coworking

Have you heard about the “I Share My Space” Video contest? If not, it’s time you hear what it’s all about. If you have, what are you waiting for?
Here are the 3 factors that make this contest a triple threat in the Coworking community:

1) A lucky Coworking member

First of all, there are PRIZES.  Who doesn’t love prizes?!

Winner of the contest will receive $1000 cash provided by LiquidSpace as well as a $1000 donation to the charity of your choice.  You can win some money and feel good about your donation at the same time.

It’s simple:

First you create a video (30 seconds or less) on what coworking is, why you love it or your favorite coworking story.

Second, join the I Share My Space Video Contest Vimeo Group and upload your video to Vimeo. To be eligible for the contest, contestants must be 18 or older, an active member of a coworking space and a U.S. resident.

2) Your Coworking Space

According to a recent study by Forrester Research, videos are 53 times more likely to get a first page Google ranking than conventionally optimized webpages. The “I Share my Space” video contest is a great way to get video content for your Coworking space. We highly recommend that Coworking space owners use this opportunity to drive traffic to their website by posting their members submissions.

Also, the winner’s Coworking space will receive a $500 Apple gift certificate provided by Turnstone and a Medusa PlaceMaker Starter Kit with installation and training from from Wun Systems (worth $5000.) Not only is one of your Coworking members winning, you’re winning too!

3) The Coworking World

I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly explaining what Coworking means. The contest starts a Coworking channel and repository of definitions and stories that share our story with the world. Let’s fill it up!

What should you do now?

If you’re a member of a Coworking space, make a video and enter the contest.
If you’re an owner of a Coworking space, promote the video contest on your social media sites and website as well as encourage your members to participate.
You can also print out this PDF to share with your members all the contest information.

There it is. Now let’s get some great videos rolling!
