You read that right! We need writers!
Here’s your chance to strut your stuff. Show us that you know a Thesaurus from a Dictionary. Dangle those participles… if it makes sense. Dazzle us! Give us the copy that will have us come banging at YOUR door. Many of you have said that you could do a better job that our writers. Well now is your time to put up or shut up.
Will this help you get a writer job with Woot? Heck no. But it could still be fun and the writers may even peek in if we’re lucky.
So what’s your assignment, you ask? I’m glad you asked!
As you know, this woot-off theme is about the cublandia, that barren cubical in the corporate world. Well, guess what? While we were cleaning out the warehouse, we came across some gems of office technology that we forgot sell a few (a lot) years back and we need to sell them now. You know we’re not going to let this inventory go to waste. No way. We’ll sell it to you suckers…. I mean, wonderful wooters.
Thing is, they really are pretty old and outdated. Some might even call them antiques. They’re relics of a different era in office automation.
BUT WE WANT TO SELL THEM!
So you’re task is to write the Woot-like copy that will sell this product to the other Woot suckers… uhm, Wooters. You may have to exaggerate a bit (a lot) on the features. You may even have to invent new uses for them. We know you can think beyond the typical paper weight and door stop.
This is it. This is your time. Make it count. Let’s sell some product!
Just Reply to one of the photos below and let your fingers do the talking (on the keyboard).
Oh, and if you don’t know what something is, just ask. Someone will tell you. I will, in full disclosure, admit to having used every one of these at one time or another. Some many, many, many times.
