Scoff if you will, but I just won $60 for less than 5 minutes of my time.

I wrote a tagline @ www.hatchwise.com (http://www.hatchwise.com) for Bubba Shane BBQ...

The neat thing about this contest is that the client is creating a BBQ Sauce for charity to help children in Colorado's foster care system. :Sun:

Getting people to vote for you is not cool at all. You're giving yourselves an unfair advantage over the other people who enter these contests. That is not fair. The best slogan should win. Not the person with the most acquaintances to vote for them. Really am disappointed that such stuff is going on here.

Hi Ken,
This particular slogan site tells writers to ask for votes. Personally, I don't like that part of it, but thought I'd give it a try for once. To my knowledge, I only received a handful of votes, since I'm not much for social media and don't have many acquaintances. In the end, the contest holder does pick the slogan they like best, anyway.

Don't know if you guys have heard of it, but I submitted a couple of slogans to them this weekend.

www.GetASlogan.com (http://www.GetASlogan.com)

I have a question about this web site.

Today I tried signing up to be a contributor. I filled out the info they asked for. They were supposed to send me an email and then I would click on some link from there to become a contributor.

I never got any email.

Whaddya think? What should I do?

Edit: Never mind! I checked under Promotions on my G-mail account. That's where they put the email!

I won my very first slogan contest @ GetASlogan, but recently I've noticed a tremendous decrease in activity at that site...

I rarely get contest notifications any more and the traffic seems to have moved to the other slogan/branding/naming sites I frequent.

Their website seems to experience quite a few glitches as well, so unless I'm notified of a contest that excites me, I don't bother with them any more. :Shrug:

Just an FYI.

rhymegirl
07-18-2014, 04:45 PM
Thanks for the reply, Lavern.

Good to know. I did enter one of the contests on GetaSlogan. I was wondering if you can enter more than one slogan per contest. I didn't see anything in the rules about it.

I may look into the other sites you told me about, too.

Hey Kath,
On Get a Slogan, you can enter up to 10 slogans; then, as the buyer rates them, you can enter more. I recently won my first contest there, but I, too, have noticed that it's been fairly slow for awhile. Slogan Slingers has a lot more activity. Glad you're joining in the fun. :)

Thanks. I went ahead and entered 3 ideas for one contest on Getaslogan.

One thing I've noticed is they're not making a decision very fast. I was hoping this was going to be a fairly quick process.

Unfortunately, the contest holders can take weeks to decide on a slogan, brand/product name or tagline.

Okay, I have a question.

I entered 2 slogans in a contest for Happy Hour Pools on Slogan Slingers.

The contest has ended. (this is my first time entering a contest on SS.)

When I clicked on the link to read and vote for the contest entries, guess what? My slogans are not listed! I noticed a bunch of numbers in the sequence are missing.

Does that usually happen?

Lavern08
07-24-2014, 07:52 PM
Slogan Slingers has been plagued with a number of website glitches and hackers.

I got an email this morning apologizing for and explaining all of the problems they've experienced over the last few weeks.

Hopefully, they're back on track now.

I was ready to delete my account with them due to similar issues with my entries, etc.

I'm gonna wait and see what happens with them, but meanwhile I'll be slinging slogans and brand names elsewhere. :)

A client invented a corkscrew/bottle opener that looks like a football referee with his hands raised in the "touchdown" sign when its fully engaged on the neck of the bottle...

Well, she needed a name for it, and I suggested "The Official Corkscrew" (because referees are also known as "officials")...

The answer to my question may be an obvious one, but I'm well known for overlooking the obvious. Haha! At SloganSlingers, a contest has ended and I've received an e-mail from them encouraging me to ask my friends to vote for my slogan. Where is the "voting" part, what screen do you go to, how do you get there? It's kinda hard for me to share the link with friends when I don't know where it is myself. Thanks for any help!

Lavern08
04-27-2015, 12:27 AM
Poppy,

When you get those emails from Slogan Slingers, click on the link that is embedded in the email - I think it says: Vote Here:

Once you get there, you have to scroll down to find your entries and then you rank them 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place...

Then, you'll see an orangey button thingy that says "Finalize Voting" you click that to register your 3 choices.

I think the voting link is also embedded in the email Slogan Slingers sends.:Shrug:

Poppy
04-28-2015, 04:57 AM

I submitted one to Get a Slogan, then I wanted a reminder of what they pay and I couldn't find it anywhere. I vaguely remember seeing the rates when I signed up. Something like $5 before you qualify? And you only qualify once your slogan is accepted among hundreds of others. I kind of like the idea but I may look for their competitors to see if there's something better.

BarII
06-18-2015, 12:40 AM
I did some more investigating and found that the "Admin Email" for Get a Slogan is "dominos [at] xperimenta [dot] com" and when I went to the home page of that domain it was in a foreign language with content that caused my AV program to pop up a big warning. I previously found it unusual that the state they're located in isn't mentioned in the TOS. It's usually mentioned with the litigation info. I guess they're not in this country.

I'm switching to sloganslingers.com. I can easily find their pay rates and nothing looks suspicious.

06-19-2015, 11:07 PM
Tip: define any big words you use in the slogan. Like "protocol." Luckily the business gave me feedback on my submission. Seems he thought I invented the word and it sounded too much like a product, whereas I had to name a procedure.
