One of the things that we're actively trying to do here at Cigar Federation is to draw new users to the site and increase discourse on the forums. We've been working on lots of different ideas for how to do this - and you'll see some of those in the coming days, weeks and months.
Then, on Saturday, my cousin came over the house to watch the UFC Heavyweight Championship fight between Cain Velasquez & Bigfoot Silva and he asked to smoke a cigar. When I opened up one of my humidors for him, he started laughing at the overflowing mound of cigars and my wife gave off a grunt. At that point, I thought it might make sense to have a contest and give away some cigars to empty the humidors.
Next, I started thinking through contests to have that could draw new users to Cigar Federation and increase discussion on the forums. I came up with several ideas, but then I thought maybe it would be better to make that the contest - what do you think would be a great contest to add new users and increase discussion on these forums?
So, that's the contest - INCEPTION! Reply to this forum post with a contest that you think will do both of the following:
I will pick the suggestion that I like the best and I will send the winner a cigar sampler (it will be at least a 5er and I promise it will be worth your while). Then, we will hold the contest that wins and I will give that winner a similar prize.
Make sense? Let me know if you have any questions. Only replies to this post will count. Promoting on Twitter, Facebook, other cigar communities will not officially count, but might endear me to your cause! ;)
Suggestions will be accepted through Wednesday, June 5th at 11:59pm.
