In it to win

So, you’ve entered our contest to become the face of about.me – now what? How can you secure a coveted spot on the Times Square billboard? There are still 22 days remaining!

We’re here to help. We’ve added a bunch of ways you can share you page and ask for votes – on Twitter, Facebook and via email, right from your page. Click the icon you’d like to share to, add some flair to the text, and share away. We’d recommend switching it up and sharing to each service a couple times a week.

We know you have other networks you are a part of however, so be sure to share beyond what we offer. Make sure you are sharing places where you have friends and followers – like Instagram, tumblr, Google+ and formspring.

Another way to garner votes is to blog about your entry, and why you should win. What makes your page unique or your story special? Share the post to Twitter, Facebook and beyond to provide visitors a reason to vote for you. Better yet, create a website or Facebook page, touting why you should win.

Feeling extra creative? Grab a friend or two and make a video all about why YOU should be the face of about.me. Share your video on YouTube, Vimeo, Google+ and more to let everyone know you’re a star!

Finally, consider representing a cause. We’ve seen a number of pages focused on raising awareness for a campaign. This opens your voting audience up to anyone who supports the same cause as you.
