Inkefx vs. SeiBei – Tee Madness 2012 Contest
Let me just start off by saying how much fun it was to participate in the Tee Madness 2012 contest. This was my first year to participate and as much as I would have wanted to continue to the next round I have to give it up to SeiBei. They have a great brand, great fans and I wish them nothing but the best.
I learned a lot. I learned how committed Inkefx friends, family and most of all the fans are. When I was in need of votes you guys chipped in, no questions asked! You guys even began to share with other friends by posting on your walls and through twitter. I really did appreciate all the support from everyone, I can’t say it enough.
I also learned what other indie tShirt companies used to help gain momentum. Using FaceBook and Twitter were the obvious choices but some companies became more involved by offering up prizes if they hit certain marks or make it to the next round. Some people were offering 20% – 40% off merchandise if they made it to the next round and even FREE shirts. Everyone was very clever and I hope to implement similar ideas next year.
I want to say thanks to Adam from IAmTheTrend.com and Zach from BlueTideProductions.com for organizing everything and making it such a fun experience even for someone like me that went out in the first round. Thanks to SeiBei for being a good sport. And I want to say thanks to all my friends, family and fans for supporting Inkefx and helping us get to where we are today.
