PowerPack Challenge: The Winning Strategy

Post early and actively collect and incorporate feedback – and you can substantially increase your chances of winning the first prize in the PowerPack Challenge 2009.

Here’s how Jonathan Medd got his Best PowerPack award last year (in 2008):

  1. He posted his Exchange 2003 PowerPack really early when the contest was only starting.
  2. The pack got tons of interest, was featured in podcasts and blogs, and Jonathan received a lot of feedback and even contributions from Shay and Aleksandar.
  3. He kept incorporating feedback and contributions throughout the contest.
  4. By the contest deadline, his PowerPack got well ahead of more recent entries in both quality and feature richness.

So if you have something in the works – be agile. Go ahead and post it. Tell the world, get feedback, and keep improving what you’ve got.
