If you follow Namecheap on Twitter, you’ve probably seen the company post trivia questions today. I saw the questions, and I visited their website to see what was happening and at stake. In case you aren’t aware, Namecheap just began its annual holiday Twitter trivia contest, and the company is giving out prizes for answering correctly.
Here’s how the company describes the trivia contest on its website:
“New questions are posted every hour during the contest. Five people win a domain name every hour – the first to tweet the right answer and four others chosen at random who also answer correctly.The Grand Prize, a MacBook Air, will be awarded to the person who tops the leaderboard. The next three top-scoring trivia participants will each receive a brand-new Apple iPad.”
Based on some of the questions that have already been posed, it looks like the topics for these trivia questions run the gamut, although it seems that the questions are related to the holidays and Winter.
The contest already began today, and as of the publication time of this article, there have been 14 questions already posed. The contest will end on December 24th (I am not sure what time it ends). To see who is currently winning, you can visit the contest leaderboard page.
I think holding a contest like this is a great way to keep customers engaged for several days, and it’s also offers a nice way to reward customers for being engaged with the company with the domain name giveaways.
