In honor of the holiday season, EONS.com and the Building a Virtual Company group are hosting a "Deck the Halls" Business Contest starting TODAY through Thursday, Dec. 20. Winner to be announced on Friday, Dec. 21.
The idea is this:
The EONS member who can come up with the longest list of viable business ideas with a holiday theme will win "The Best of the Johnny Cash" TV show from 1969 - 1971 with 66 full-length performances on two DVDs. That's over four hours of previously unavailable footage from his variety show.
The runner up gets two free hours of strategic marketing consultation from AmyZ, manager of the Building a Virtual Company group. She will also pick the winner.
Here are the rules:
1) Themes are not restricted to Christmas. Any holiday taking place this time of year, including New Year's, Chanukah, Kwanzaa (others?) is fine.
2) You don't need to submit a business plan, but you do need to provide one cogent paragraph explaining your idea and how it could work.
-- A holiday card company on the Web
-- Holiday food for sale on the Web
-- a Web-based gift store
3) Please submit your ideas in the message section of the Building a Virtual Company group that will be set up to capture entries. It will be labelled: DECK THE HALLS BUSINESS CONTEST ENTRY FOLDER.
Who knows? Next year we may put this company to the test and all be winners.
