What is Better Your Best?
The “Better Your Best” contest calls for all iGo Community Platinum members to submit an application highlighting their business achievements of the past year.
Virtually every Platinum Member has a chance to win the contest, regardless of their current business situation. The winner is not determined by how successful their business is, but by the improvements they have achieved in their category, as well as by who can best articulate the amazing benefits of making a commitment to building a better business.
During our February event, a winner is selected to receive the grand prize of $10,000 cash and become the iGo Community Ambassadors for the new year!
The iGo team and the greater iGo Community look forward to this contest every year, as it allows us to come together and celebrate one another’s accomplishments – because that’s what our community is all about: cheering each other on, applauding those who reach their goals, and helping others avoid pitfalls along the way. And as we all strongly believe, supporting another’s success won’t ever dampen your own.
Contest Rules & Overview
Virtually every Platinum Member has a chance to win the “Better Your Best” contest, regardless of who you are or what your current business situation is.
The winner is not determined by how successful their business is, but by the improvements they have achieved in their category, as well as by who can best articulate the amazing benefits of making a commitment to building a better business.
The winners of the contest will show the most improvements in their business category by comparing a period of at least 3-months from 2021 to the same period of at least 3-months in 2020.
In Order to be Eligible
In order to compete in this contest, you must be a Platinum member in good standing, meaning that you are engaged with your team and do not have an outstanding balance on your monthly payments for Platinum. You must also have participated in at least seventy-five percent (75%) of coaching calls and Platinum meetings.
Winner must be present at the 2022 February Platinum Meeting. Contest payout is contingent upon continued Platinum membership and participation through at least February 2023. Premature iGo Community membership cancellation and/or lack of participation will result in forfeiture of reward and any reward received will need to be returned.
Times and Deadlines
The “Better Your Best” contest officially begins February 1, 2021. The contest is based on your improvement from what your business did in any period of at least three consecutive months in 2021 compared to what it does in the same months in 2020. For example, you may choose to compare the period March – May 2020 with March – May 2021.
There are no application fees. You simply need to be a Platinum Member in good standing to enter. Being a Platinum Member in 2021 does NOT obligate you to enter the contest. Entering the contest gives you an opportunity to step up to the plate and showcase your achievements.
The grand prize winner not only receives $10,000, but will also become the national spokesperson of the iGo Community and a designated “Ambassador” to the industry.
The “Better Your Best” contest ends on December 31, 2021. The grand prize will be awarded at the 2022 February Platinum Meeting. Contest applications must be received by December 31, and contestants must be present at the 2022 February Platinum Meeting to be eligible to win.
After you complete and submit your application at the conclusion of the contest period, a panel of up to twelve judges familiar with the home inspection business, marketing, and business growth strategies will thoroughly evaluate each competitor’s contest application.
Judges will examine the application from the perspective of the category you competed in and will look at the documentation you provided proving the improvement you made during the contest period.
They will also thoroughly review each essay, giving it a score based in part on how well each competitor explains how he/she benefited from making a commitment to bettering their business. They’ll be looking for explanations of what worked for you and how you can share your experiences for the benefit of other community members. This can be done in video or other creative formats. You can also be creative in how you choose to present your information. The sky is the limit!
Contestants will be partially judged based on their level of improvement against that of the other companies competing in the same category and status. Fifty percent or more of the judging will be based on the changes you implemented in your business, and up to fifty percent will be based on your essay. In the event of a tie, the tie will be broken by which competitor received the highest essay score.
After each person who has entered the contest has a final score, up to 12 finalists will be selected based on who receives the highest score from each category. Each finalist may be asked to give a short presentation at the 2022 February Platinum Meeting, which will factor into the final judging.
Grand Prize of $10,000
The grand prize winner will be considered an “Ambassador” and might be asked to attend – at
at the iGo Community’s expense – certain industry functions and all iGo Community events. The grand prize winner must also be available for media interviews, be interviewed for materials copyrighted to iGo Community for unrestricted use, and otherwise act as an iGo Community industry ambassador.
Contest payout is contingent upon continued Platinum membership and participation through at least February 2023. Premature iGo Community membership cancellation and/or lack of participation will result in forfeiture of reward and any reward received will need to be returned. Of course, employees and immediate family members of InspectionGo are not eligible to win this contest.
In 700 words or less, please explain why you should be named the “Better Your Best” contest winner. Contestants should be creative and specific in their essays.
You may choose to discuss how you benefited from this contest, how goal setting is an important component of success, or your use of proven marketing techniques.
Consider questions such as: What kept you going this year? What was the single most important element of your success? How can you motivate others?
