Our GDI Around the World Contest has been running for a few weeks with one objective: to show off that you can be a GDI affiliate anywhere. We’ve got a few entries on our Pinterest page, but we want more! The best part for you? A chance to win $50 while you show off. Two winners will win $50 each just for sharing where they GDI from in picture form. Full details of the contest can be found here: http://gdiaffiliateblog.ws/2013/04/15/gdi-around-world-contest/ But read on for some helpful hints to make your submission a success.

No Printer? No Problem

If you’re headed somewhere great or see any opportunity for an awesome picture but don’t have your sign, don’t worry. You can create your own sign and let the world know you’re a GDI affiliate. Just include your “GDI Affiliate” and your domain name on your sign in large, legible letters and hold it up in front of your awesome background. Now follow the steps to submit and enter. We want to know you can be an affiliate and work from anywhere, even if that means creating your own sign on a whim

Pinterest is Easy

With this contest you need to a have Pinterest account and create a new board. Don’t be overwhelmed by this. It’s easy to get started on Pinterest and its very user friendly.

Utilize Your Marketing Kit Banner

Around6Our newest contest launched on Monday. You can find full rules HERE. Below you’ll find a few tips to ensure your submission is counted and has a chance to win.

Stay Away from Photoshop

We want you to show the world just how many places you can be from and work from as a GDI affiliate. This means taking a picture with your sign while you’re somewhere you want to show off. So print out your sign, hold it up and snap a picture. Don’t reuse old photos and edit the banner in, we want the real deal.

Submit Again and Again

There’s no limit to the places you can work from and there’s no limit to how many pins you can submit. If you have five different places you want to show off, take a picture in all of them and pin them to share. If you have just one special place, that works too. Just keep sharing.

Your Board and Letting Us Know

Create a board of your own titled “GDI Around the World.” First log in to Pinterest and load your pin to this board and then let us know on Facebook or Twitter that you’ve added this new pin. We will check it out and decide if it’s worthy of a repin on GDICorporate’s “GDI Around the World Board.” Remember, to ensure your pin is eligible it must be a real picture with the banner in it. We’re proud of your Photoshop skills, but now is not the time to show them off.
