So just want to apologize for not posting for quite some time as I was pretty much overwhelmed with this trimester’s schedule for college. For Mondays and Thursdays, I have to go to school 7 am up tp 7 pm and I usually come home 8 pm and I’m wasted then. I also am adjusting to it and now I find time so I might as well post this one now rather than later. 🙂
Now I am proud to announce The Melvin Blog’s 2009 Contest wherein their is over $700 at steak stake! Yes and its not just “$700” in some unrealistic sense of matter. It’s actually $700+ in real prizes from real marketer who really knows a lot about making money online. Actually some of the prizes there are priceless. I mean other sponsors just told me the quality of what they are sponsoring is enough rather than mentioning how much it actually worths. So again here they are and they’re prizes:
- Kris Jones, CEO of the PepperjamNetwork sponsored a copy of his Search Engine Optimization book and $50 deposited straight in your Pepperjam Account. Worth $70
- Neil Patel of Quicksprout agreed to give one year free membership of Crazy Egg . Worth Over $100
- Dean Hunt, the leading Buzz Marketing Expert , is giving away behind the scenes of all their reports and case studies worth $99.
- Super Affiliate Zac Johnson sponsored three MoneyReign Shirt
- Caroline Middlebrook is giving away a copy of Bloggers Bible worth $47
- Carl Ocab gives three copies of the Ultimate Blogging Theme worth $67 each
- Collin Lahay of Link Building Blog sponsored $25 cash paid via paypal
- Gyutae Park of Winning The Web agreed to give a one month free of his Internet Marketing Membership released next month
- Joe of the I’m With Joe sponsored a free Video Review of your site
- Alvin Phang is giving away his atomic blogging theme for free.
- Donny Gamble of Linkers Blog agrees to give away a free copy of his Blog Comment Blueprint
- The Affiliate of Affiliatehat is giving away $100 paypal in cash
- Splash Press Media gives away 12-month free subscription of Performancing pMetrics worth $60
- Melvin of The Melvin Blog is giving away 1000 entrecard credits (i know its lame 🙁 )
Basically it’s based (anew) on pointing system. The higher the points, the higher your chances would be. It will be drawn at the end of the contest which is February 21 2009. There would be 18 winners and winning a prize doesn’t mean you can’t win another so it speaks about volume and of course luck. I wanted to make this contest as transparent as possible but enjoyable as well. You couldn’t game this contest too so its kinda sad for gamers. 🙂 Interestingly I am giving everyone their choice for a prize. Let’s say a guy named Stephon Marbury ended up being drawn first so basically he has the choice for a prize. Why am I doing this? Simply because all of the prizes have almost equal value. Some may prefer paypal cash or maybe some just want shirts. So that’s why!
How to enter:
- Comment in this post – 1 point
- Subscribe to my RSS via email – this accounts 3 points. Only one email address per human
- Follow me at twitter – equivalent to 2 points.
- Add me to your blogroll – 3 points
- Digg this post – 4 points
- Blog about this contest – 5 points or 10 points. 5 points if you actually give this post a small mention in your post. I understand blogging for a contest is lame so you can just give it a mention. 10 points is for a full post with all the sponsors listed. Anyway I contacted some A+ bloggers and they suggested me to do a filter about this. So basically a blog has to have 20 or more subscribers to qualify for this one. This prevents assholes from creating a blog just to write a contest. Am I understood? 😉
- Keep following this blog. – Apparently, I want it to be more enticing so there would be what I call secret entries. Basically there would be some posts in the future that would get you more points than those above so watch out! Why doing this? It’s because people just do all of those and leave and later unsubscribe and it sucks.
Basically I am open to some more suggestions. But I believe this is an exciting one to come. I still have a lot more surprises for you related to this contest in the future so keep reading. Again I also wanted to thank all the sponsors for giving something and maybe I can do a video post someday for you guys. What are you waiting for? It’s damn easy to win.
