GDI Around the World Contest

Around3Where do you work from? We want to know! The ability to work from anywhere is one of the many perks of being a GDI affiliate. In our newest GDI Around the World Contest, we’re asking you to share in photo form all the places you can work from.

Have a local landmark you want to show off? Snap a pic! Traveling somewhere exciting? Show off! At the local library building your business? Show us! Maybe you’re halfway across the world–we want to see!

We want you to print out your .WS banner from your Marketing Kit and snap a picture of it in front of places all over the world. We want you to show off just how many places you can work to build your business from. The favorite photo stands to win $50!

How It Works: We’re asking you to check out your GDI Marketing Kit and print out the .WS banner included. The banner already has your site name on it, all you need to do is print. Maybe even print multiples to have on you just in case you see somewhere that deserves a photo. The banner can be printed on standard letter sized paper.

Now take that banner and snap a picture with it and your spot in the world in the background. Have fun with this a get creative! Take a photo in front of a landmark in your town, that waterfall on vacation or even in front the Sphinx!

You can be in the photo or not, it’s up to you, but the banner must be in it and it needs to be clearly shown. This means getting close enough so that people can read the domain on the banner, but not so close that viewers can’t see where you are. Once you have your picture, create a board on Pinterest named “GDI Around the World” and post it there. When you’re done, share the link with us on Facebook or Twitter.

We will collect all submissions and share them on our GDICorporate board with the same name. The pins will now be up for a vote. The pin with the most likes will win $50 from GDI.
