Awesome giveaway: Share your best retail success tips and get a chance to win!


Happy St Patrick’s Day, Venders!

As a big green company, it’s one of our favourite days of the year, and we wish you all the luck of the Irish. But we know that retail success takes more than luck. It takes great advice–and following through, of course.

So this month, we’re asking you to share your greatest tips for retail success for a chance to win our four-leaf clover gift pack. Actually it’s a Hot Hardware Kit valued at $800 including a cash drawer, barcode scanner, receipt printer and 30 minutes of free remote services. But four-leaf clover sticks with the theme.

Simply share your tips on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn with the hashtag #vendretailsuccess and we’ll pick one lucky winner who’ll take home the four-leaf clover pack. We’ll also choose some runners-up who’ll get a bunch of Vend goodies.


How to enter:

1. Fill out this contest form on Facebook.

2. Think of a killer retail success tip. It could be anything from making more sales, delighting customers, increasing productivity, and more. For some inspiration, check out our Retail Tips Generator here.

3. Once you have a tip, share it with Vend through our Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn page and include the hashtag #vendretailsuccess. Be sure to submit your entries before midnight on the 31st of March.

Remember, you’ll have to fill out the form on Facebook before sending us your tips! That way, we’ll know how to get in touch if you win.

4. Keep an eye out! We’ll be announcing the winner via social media on the April 3rd, and we’ll also be notifying them via email.
