GSB Voting Do’s and Don’ts

Tips for getting votes:
  • Share your video with friends and family via social media
  • Ask your local Organizers and community to help you
  • Vote for other teams too, they will return the favor, the more votes, the better for the whole startup community
  • Contact your local startup blog or news site, pitch your story and company and see if they will support you
  • Ping influencers from your area via Twitter and ask for a RT or support
  • Ambassadors. Have fans already? Get them the tools and information to help
  • Get out in the streets and collect votes!
Things you CANNOT do to get votes (that will result in disqualification):
  • Pay for votes in any form
  • Post your voting page link on any sites that pay for votes
  • Set up email accounts on temporary inbox services (votes need to come from a real person, accounts will be verified and we reserve the right to disqualify a team for having fake votes)
  • Extort any business or individual
  • No exchange of value in order to get votes (you may, however, run a contest with a single winner to drive interest and buzz, but the value of the prize needs to be less than $50 USD)
  • Use paid advertising to drive votes
