Jumpstart your business {complete with a giveaway}

I recently hit 1,000 fans on my Facebook page! I was so happy and so stunned. I am a one-woman operation here and having so many people out there encouraging me and supporting me is just so phenomenal.

I feel very fortunate that I am able to work at my dream job and I wanted to help other photographers be able to do the same thing….so, I decided to ask some of my favorite vendors to help me celebrate…and they said “Yes!”.  Oooohhh, then I got even more excited about it. I hope you will all get excited when you see the wonderful and talented people I lined up for you…and they all want to help you work, grow and succeed because we all support one another around here!

To enter the contest:

  • You will need to go to each vendors Facebook page and LIKE them. I am using Rafflecopter for the giveaway so it will make it much easier for you to go like them all. The come back here and leave me a comment telling me that you did so. (You can even leave a little ♥ on their page for being so generous!). You MUST leave the comment on the BLOG POST (not Facebook) telling me that you liked all the vendors! Without the comment I won’t know that you did all the requirements and I won’t be able to contact you, so it is very important that you do it and enter your email address!
  • If you have any problems with your entries please email me at lori@loripetersonphotography.com. Don’t post questions or issues with entries in the comments!
  • Giveaway begins on Friday, January 27, 2012 and ends on Sunday, February 5th, 2012. Winner will be announced on Tuesday, February 7, 2012.
