  • Business to Business (Any "supply chain" business) - Offering a pool contest to your suppliers or business customers is a great way to reward loyalty, and to get their opinions on how you're doing, how you might do better, and their plans for the future, all while projecting a professional and fun image. This is actually our lagest percentage of customers.
