Enter The ASO Road Trip Contest!

We at ASO have the good fortune to assist many fantastic customers with their web hosting accounts throughout the day, and since we’re a curious bunch, we want to take that relationship a little bit further.

No, we’re not proposing, but we are planning to pick a place in the continental US to visit so we can get to know some of the awesome folks that host with us.

But we’re not exactly sure where to go…and that’s where you come in. Wanna hang out with us? Sure you do. Here’s how to get your town considered to be an ASO Road Trip destination:

1) Assemble a great piece of content that details why we should visit your town. A web page, a blog post, a video, a song, a photo gallery- we’re open. Whatever you think best showcases your stomping grounds! See the FAQ below for more details.

2) Click here to fill out the nomination form.

3) Tweet a nomination for your town/city, and you’re good to go!

All tweets must include the name of the place you’re nominating, a link to your content, and the hashtag #ASORoadTrip. Retweets are always a good way to get the word out…

All nominations must be in by 11:59pm, Friday, September 21, 2012.

If You Win…
If we pick your town, you’ll receive up to a $100 credit (per month) towards hosting for 6 months, as well as a super-sturdy Yeti Roadie Cooler stocked with all sorts of goodies for your next road trip.  (NOTE: Hosting credit is only good for up to $100 per month)


Q: What do I have to do to get you to visit?
Complete the short nomination form
we created, link to your blog/photo gallery/video/etc (be as creative as you like, but please, keep it clean!), and tweet it with the #ASOroadtrip hashtag.

Bang! You’re entered in the contest!

Q: Why are you doing this?
We want to meet the great people that host with us, chow down with them, maybe have a few drinks- we’re big fans of face-to-face interaction when our eyes aren’t laser-locked to a computer screen. What’s more, it’s an opportunity for you to meet up some of the ASO enthusiasts in your town, network a little, make new lifelong friends…

Q: How will you select a winner?
We’ll whittle the entries down to 3 finalists on Monday, September 24th, and have our readers/followers/fans/community vote on the winning location that week!

Q: When are you choosing the winning town/city?
Friday, September 28th.

Q: And what’s going to happen when you come?
Food! Drink! Swag (Moleskines, Tshirts, and more)! Door prizes! Lively conversation! A Justin Bieber Karaoke Jam! (Just kidding. Sincere apologies to Beliebers worldwide)

Q: What do I need to do to win?
Good question.

Be creative! Be original! We’re open in terms of the content type you send along, so just make sure that your blog post/video/web page/gallery/interpretive dance on web video captures why your city is the best place for the ASO Road Trip meet up.

What’s that? You live in the middle of nowhere? This is irrelevant. Enter! We don’t need an audience of 500 for it to be a success. All entries will be considered, regardless of your location in the continental US.

Looking forward to hearing from you! Any questions? Ask us in the comments, or email jim [at] asmallorange [dot][com]. We’ll be happy to help.
