Finally — a “hackathon” for the non-coders among us! The team at Tracky is hosting the first virtual hackathon for communications professionals. #CommHacks, if you will. Anyone working in the PR, marketing, journalism or content space can participate. The best part? No formal developer/coding training required.

Think you’ve got a potential winner? Tracky has the scoop to help you submit your idea and be entered to win a prize. (Deadline: Sunday, May 12 at 10p PDT.) Five winners will be selected. The creator of the best #workhack will receive a new iPad Mini, 250 Postagram credits, top feature in Tracky’s Communications #WorkHacks e-book and other honors. Also up for grabs are a free subscription to Pitchengine and personalized smartphone cases from Casetagram.
After hearing Tracky’s Sarah Evans recently speak at a conference, I updated my influencer outreach process to include a few #WorkHacks designed to improve the relationship-building and nurturing process. You can read my “secrets” here. Then, think of your favorite #CommHacks and be part of this virtual hackathon!
