$200 Prize Winners Announced for The Writer’s Life B2B Email Writing Contest

Steve Slaunwhite is here today with a big announcement — the names of the three winners for the recent The Writer’s Life B2B Email Writing Contest!

Check out his short video for the names and brief insights about their winning submissions.

With over 340 entries to our recent online ad writing contest from The Writer’s Life, Steve says it was “super-tough” to choose just three $200 prize winners.

We’d also like to give kudos to everyone who submitted an entry. Great job on doing the work — and be sure to add your sample to your portfolio!

The challenge was to write a B2B promotional email of just 83 words to invite grocery retailers, independent restaurant owners, convenience store owners, and concession operators to attend a trade show exhibit for the WarmCo food warming unit. Readers were given a copywriting brief like you’d receive from a real client. You can check out the Practice Assignment for writing a sample B2B Email here.

Now, here’s Steve with the three prize-winning entries (as well as a few Honorable Mentions) … He also shares some valuable tips writers can use to improve ANY copy they write.

Congratulations again to our three winners — Elizabeth, Janina, and Stephanie — and to everyone who took the time to submit an entry! Be sure to read our daily e-letter, The Writer’s Life, for more contest opportunities.

Note: If you’d like feedback on your entry, consider requesting it from fellow copywriters in the private Online Copywriters group here. (While there’s no guarantee a peer will review it, we do encourage it! Everyone’s writing gets stronger with constructive feedback.)
