TEAM BUILDING TIP

Hey, Team Leaders, here’s a great tip to help you grow your group and get your members more active: piggybacking!  That is, we strongly encourage you to run your own contest concurrently with our UNSTOPPABLE contest.

While we’re running OUR corporate contest, you can be running, at the same time, YOUR contest with your own prizes and recognition.  In doing so, you’ll help us get more people involved in our contest…and we’ll help you get more of your members active and in yours!  Meanwhile, everyone entering gets more opportunities to win prizes and recognition.  An awesome win/win/win for all!

We will post at the end of each month (after commissions are processed), a list of the top 100 finishers.  Hence, we recommend that you design your contest to award prizes/recognition for coming in first, second, third…and/or in the top ten, top 20, top 50, and/or top 100.

HELP US MAKE UNSTOPPABLE EVEN BIGGER

We’d like to substantially increase the amount of cash and prizes we’re giving away each month!  Help us make this a reality by actively promoting the contest to your team.  The more participation, the bigger the prizes can go!  Thank you!
