BibMe’s Great Textbook Giveaway

We on the BibMe team are very appreciative of the support our users have given us. Many of you have made donations, spread the word about BibMe, and recommended it to your educational peers. We’re hoping you continue to do so, but in case you needed a little convincing, we’re giving you a little more incentive.

Today, we’re proud to announce “BibMe’s Great Textbook Giveaway”! We’re giving someone the chance to win $500 worth of textbooks for the spring semester of 2010. And here’s how…

We’re holding a contest to see who can market BibMe in the most creative, effective way. Come up with a novel idea on how to spread the word about BibMe, and then make that idea happen. We’re leaving the rest up to you. Go all out – hire a skywriter! Rig up a bat signal with the BibMe logo! Feel free to go viral, or make use of any number of social networking/media websites, too, if you’d like. If you have a lot of Facebook friends or Twitter followers, using them as your target audience may be a smart place to start. You may be able to target people better near your school, particularly around finals week near the end of fall semester. But you are in no way limited to stay on campus – go wherever your idea takes you!

Please email your submission to textbooks@bibme.org. Include your name, school, a description of your idea and why you think it was effective,  along with pictures and/or video to show it in action. We will share submissions on our blog as we get them.

Submissions must be made by Thursday, December 31, 2009 at 11:59 PM ET. The four members of the BibMe team will judge all entries on originality, creativity, and effectiveness. A winner will be announced on Sunday, January 3, 2010 and will be contacted with details on how to claim their $500 credit towards their textbooks for the semester.

By making a submission for the contest, you:

  1. Give BibMe permission to publish your submission on our website, including but not limited to your name, a description of your idea, and any submitted photos/videos.
  2. Agree that you accept all responsibility for any marketing efforts you make and that you do not hold BibMe responsible in any way.
  3. Agree to make any marketing efforts tasteful and appropriate, and that any marketing efforts will not diminish BibMe’s brand or reputation.

Good luck and we can’t wait to see what you guys can come up with!

UPDATE: Unfortunately, we didn’t receive any submissions, so no books will be given out this semester. We’d still like to give books away to our users – keep following our blog to find out when we do this next.

    Just Started using the site this semester. While I understand that I am not the only one going to school full time and working two jobs and I applaud anyone that is able to effectively manage such a tasks as hand-writing just a detailed bibliography without the express assistence of this or similar sites, I believe this site is an important asset.
