Last week, Vancouver’s PEER 1 launched episode two of their “Growing Pains” franchise along with a $10,000 Contest. Premiering at Interop Las Vegas, episode two continues the saga of a home business start-up that grew quickly out of control, taking over the house with new employees, computers and servers. Viewers of the episode can create their own growing pains videos highlighting their personal experiences for a chance to win a prize package of 12 months of free managed hosting, a 15-inch MacBook and a Sony HD camcorder, at a total value of $10,000.
“We want our customers to focus on the possibilities not the problems of the Internet,” said Rajan Sodhi, vice president of marketing at PEER 1. “With the Growing Pains series we are able to bring people together through humor and show that we truly understand the issues that businesses face today. PEER 1 removes these issues to help online businesses succeed in any industry.”
The Growing Pains video series is a part of PEER 1’s “We Get IT” campaign, which focuses on the customers behind technology. The first episode was viewed more than 75,000 times through Viddler and YouTube.
