What Do You Get When You Combine Models And Bix.com?

Why, a contest featuring models, of course! (Sorry, that was really lame, but it really didn’t take that long for a glossy T&A contest to hit Bix.com, either.)

Solomodels.com launched their contest using Bix.com early last week. They’ve got separate model and photographer contests running, offering a total of $2,000 in prize money.

Content of this contest is one thing, but, seriously, it’s a great way for Solomodels.com to use Bix. They look to be creating a community around models and photographers, and, according to the their profile on Bix.com, they are “the world’s premier destination for fashion models and photographers“. So why not take advantage of free, off-the-web-shelf technology for their promotions? They’re reaching their core customers, models and photographers, through this simple contest. Good for them, I say.

Until it happens, I’m (cautiously & patiently) waiting for a serious brand to play in Bix.com’s sandbox. I’ve got some great ideas…

    Great post and great blog, thanks. In a world where DVRs, IM, and a million other diversions offer consumers alternatives to traditional advertising, user-generated content contests offer marketers a way to really connect with their brands… But it looks like you already believe that ;–)

    Also, just a heads-up that we are running a few contests with big names (at least in the US):

    Six Flags Scream Contest

    Roxio
    http://www.bix.com/roxio

    And bunch more will launch soon. Stay tuned.

    Best,
    Mike
    CEO, Bix

    Mike, I think we’re on the same page, without question. Traditional media doesn’t often work for brands any longer and technology like Bix.com is simply a fantastic tool for innovative marketers.

    Thanks for the links to the Six Flags and Roxio contests, Mike. Those are ideal contests for Bix.com (and I particularly enjoyed the Six Flags Great American Scream Off!).

  3. Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my
    comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
