The Maids Win the Contest Queen's Favor

THE MAIDS Home Services of Durham recently received praise from Carolyn Wilman, the Contest Queen. Wilman, a marketing, promotions and event expert who wrote the first Internet-focused contest resource book in Canada called “You Can’t Win If You Don’t Enter,” became familiar with THE MAIDS Home Services through their online sweepstakes. 

In her online blog, Wilman wrote, “Last year, THE MAIDS had an online sweepstakes and part of the promotion was…to watch a demo of how thoroughly they cleaned.” She adds, “After playing everyday for two weeks, I thought, ‘maybe I have finally found a service that will clean my home the same way I do.’” This was an exciting prospect as Wilman had all but given up on finding an effective and consistent housecleaning service that was capable of delivering the results she expected. 

Unfortunately, at that time, a local franchise had not yet been established in her area. However, Wilman recently attended a home show (to enter sweepstakes, of course!) and was delighted to see a THE MAIDS Home Services booth. 

“Someone decided to buy a franchise in my area. I took them up on their home show special offer. A team of four people showed up at my home and now my home sparkles,” said Wilman.

 In her blog, Wilman commended The Maids for delivering what they promise. “Sweepstakes are a very effective marketing tool,” explains Wilman. “To convert first-time customers to long-term customers, a company must deliver what it promises. Since they (THE MAIDS) have lived up to their claims, they now have a permanent customer out of me.”
