Best Marketing Idea Competition date announced

Salisbury Sales and Marketing Executives Association (SSMEA) has announced the date of its 2016 “Best Marketing Idea” Competition to be March 23 at 5:30 p.m. at the Country Club of Salisbury. Entries are open to any business or organization based in Salisbury and Rowan Count (SSMEA members are excluded).

This long-standing tradition rewards the best marketing idea based on the following criteria: uniqueness, creativity and effectiveness. All entries will be reviewed and reduced to a field of seven finalists, who will present their ideas on March 23, immediately following a reception and dinner. If selected, the entry fee will be $25, which includes dinner. You are also invited to attend if you do not wish to enter for just $25, including dinner.

Members of SSMEA will vote to determine the 2016 winner, who will be presented with a $100 cash prize as well as an SSMEA membership for the remainder of 2016.

To enter this year’s competition, simply write a description of your idea, how it was implemented, the benefits received; and send them via email to: joan@hankpalmer.com, on or before March 7.
