We would like to celebrate the launch of our We Do It For You service with all of you. What would a celebration be without gifts? The fact that there is a “you” to do it for is a great enough gift for us. After all, ’tis better to give than to receive. In that spirit, we’re excited to announce a contest where you can win three free months of our We Do It For You service for your existing plan. If you’re not already a Benchmark customer, we’ll even throw in a free Benchmark Email Marketing Plan 600 for you. That’s over a $150 value, not to mention the added value of using email marketing.

Benchmark Email created We Do It For You realizing that some just don’t have the time to do email marketing themselves. People lead busy lives, and sometimes that extra time is better spent relaxing or with loved ones. Tell us why you’re too busy to do your email marketing. We’ll pick our favorite responses and reward them with three months of our We Do It For You service plus our Plan 600. Hopefully you’re not too busy to tell us why you’re too busy!

Since we want to make sure everybody has a chance to play, we’re doing this three ways. First, we will hold a Twitter contest. Tell us why you deserve this prize in 140 characters or less and use the hash tag #WeDoItForYou.

The second contest is through email. We are an email service provider after all. Some of your stories may need more than a single tweet. Send us an email, and tell us a tale that will pull at our heart’s strings. Why are you too busy to do email marketing?

Third, and perhaps the most fun, is a video contest. Some people represent themselves better when speaking instead of writing. Post a video to YouTube and send us a link. Put Benchmark Email Video Contest in the title. We want to laugh with you, maybe even cry with you. Make it so good that even Gladiator himself would have to ask, “ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?”

The contests run dates will be as follows:
  • 9/15/2010 to 10/15/2010 – Twitter Contest
  • 10/15/2010 to 11/15/2010 – Email Contest
  • 11/15/2010 to 12/15/2010 – Video Contest

Get ready to compete and watch this space and our Twitter account for the details!
