Twitter users who follow Auctiva could win six months of free service on Auctiva's Premium Plan.

Beginning today, new and current Auctiva followers can enter to win one of at least 16 first-place prizes or the grand prize of six months of free service on Auctiva's Premium Plan. This plan gives users access to all of Auctiva's listing tools, 1 GB of image hosting, premium customer support, an Auctiva Commerce Store and more.

To participate, entrants must:

  • have an active Auctiva account (this includes the Free Tools account)
  • be following Auctiva on Twitter
  • have at least five Twitter followers, and
  • tweet any message that includes "#Auctiva," such as, "I've been using #Auctiva tools for 3 years."

Entries may be submitted up to once a day.

Over the next four weeks, at least four first-prize winners will be selected at random every Monday, and announced on Twitter at noon PDT. These winners will get their choice of Auctiva-branded merchandise, including hats, tanks, T-shirts, tote bags and mugs. Auctiva will announce the grand-prize winner on April 12, the last day of the contest.

"This is a fun way to engage our customers and provide us another means to share information with them," says Robert Green, Auctiva's communications manager. "We use our Twitter account to inform followers of our newest features, share news that could affect their business, provide some insightful advice, and also infuse a little levity from time to time."
