Walmart, contest and free entry. Enough said. But, what do you win?…The Grand Prize winner will be provided with the opportunity to sell the product on Walmart.com and in Walmart physical stores and be introduced to Sponsor’s Walmart Stores’ merchandising teams.
How does the contest work?
Inventors must submit a Youtube video of their product and some personal information before Feb. 22, 2012. Then, customers vote online for their favorite product. You can get your friends and family to vote for you and hopefully your great idea will get on the shelf.
There are two rounds of voting between March 7th – April 3rd and April 11th – April 24th. The first round will determine the top ten products and the second will pick a grand prize winner with two first prize winners. Even if you don’t win the contest you certainly can get some exposure on their webpage which will be visited by millions of people while the contest is going on.
Not many contests allow the winner to put their product on the shelf of a major store. Good luck to all the contestants. If you or anyone you know is interested in submitting an invention idea to this Wal Mart contest, please contact us at New Product Consulting.
