Win a $3,000 Apple Laptop … Maybe

by Jeremy Schoemaker on October 22, 2008 · 322 comments

Tonight I was talking on Twitter about how I thought it was kind of lame how Jason Calacanis did a twitter challenge where he was going to give away a MacBook Air if he became the most followed twitter user. He never was the #1 user but got like TONS of followers.

Anyway I shot my mouth off and said if it was me I would have given it away just to thank everyone for being so cool and following. Then Chris Winfield called me out saying if I got 15k followers would I give away a macbook pro Then went on to even state if the deadline was by the first of the year…

Everyone knows I am a gamer so I accept. But its not going to happen. I am at like 6300 followers now its not like its going to gain 8700 in the next couple months.

But I will keep my word and even put some sugar on top. If I should have more then 15k twitter followers on @shoemoney on January 1st 2009 I will buy the winner whatever pimped out mac laptop you want (AIR, Macbook, Macbook Pro) up to $3,000.00 and send it to you.

So how will we decide the winner?

Simply guess below what you think the total number of followers I will have without going over will be on jan 1st. Make sure to include your twittername. You must be following to win.

Example guess would be like twittername – @shoemoney 17523 followers

Again this is silly to think this will happen but I am a gamer and love contests so lets see what happens.

I will leave guesses open for a bit but not too long.  All guesses must be in comments ones over twitter, email, im will be ignored.  1 entry per person or both will be canceled.

2 Steven-Sanders

He said he’d give away the Mac only if he went over 15,000 followers, so why are you two guessing lower than that? It only means you aren’t going to be the winners.

I’m gonna guess an even 15,000.

3 Chris Jacobson

16,000 is my guess.

4 Content Writers Needed- Make $250/hr

I think that is cool that you are giving away a laptop for having loyal readers. I wish other top bloggers would put an offer like that on the table :)

5 Zeeshan

A lot of people seem to be stating a number below the threshold and also failing to actually following Shoemoney on Twitter to qualify.

Looks like a lot of people skim read this blog entry :-\

6 Zeeshan

following => follow*

Bah, comment system needs a edit function, even if its time restricted.

7 Legit Work From Home Jobs

You can’t just go around waving an offer like that in people’s faces and not know for sure! :) Yeah, but seriously, that would be a good win! I didn’t know that laptops could cost that much. For crying out loud, $3000. I could use that to buy a car.

11 PimpDaddy

Oh you a sly one there Mr. Shoe, yes sir, sly as a fox. If I was a bettin man I would bets you will make well over $3000 on this new project. I don’t know hows yet or what you angle is, but I will figure it out soon.

@Geek_News will throw a wild guess of 13,331

34 Geek-News.Net

I guess since you said you’ll only do this if over 15k I should’ve guess more. But dang 8500 in 70 days is going to be tough!

Um, I’ll take that challenge…what do I have to lose? @chicshoppachick – my guess is 16,857

@benadkins I think your 100% wrong Jeremy.
I’m gonna guess that you’ll hit 15,500 by January 1st.
If I were to win, however….I don’t want the Laptop. I want a permanent link on the front page of Shoemoney :) .

I’m guessing that isn’t a possibility, however, so I’ll settle for the MacBook if I win ( If I must! :) )

69 River Girl

Yes, but it will cost you $3K, and Jeremy’s base is quite large to begin with. A less well known blogger couldn’t generate that kind of buzz.

70 Zac Johnson

I’m sure it won’t stop many from trying.

71 Ranked Hard

Zac, why did you guess a number lower than the minimum required in order to win?

72 Zac Johnson

Ok, my re-guess over 15k is… 17,823!

Great Idea,

It looks like you are on your way to success with 6,554 followers already you will have 168 comments within 1 day… that would put you ahead of your number by Jan if this stays at this rate. If Twitter is as big as people say it is there are tens of thousands of subscribers out for enticing to hit that simple follow button, the only way I can see this promo going a stray is if the comment section closing and there is no incentive for them to follow you anymore. Other than that you can win this game

Gonna be tough but looks like you already gained 250 followers since this post so I’m bullish. Probably gonna be ties so what’s the rule in that case? You have to share the Mac with the other guy or what? LOL

BTW – what kind of bribe does it take to get @shoemoney to follow @domainpubber ????

Jeremy, you did a tweet several days ago about how you thought you should post here on HOW you use Twitter. That would be a great post I’d love to see! Ciao

So if you don’t get those followers, you won’t give away a MacBook to any of your followers? There should be a least some incentive for following you…maybe give away like 100 Shoemoney t-shirts. Of course you will gain A LOT more followers than that.

I have to say, this is an excellent form of link bait, albeit in Twitter form, and I’m hooked!

You’ve got 6,634~ followers as of 23/10/2008 23:35pm GMT so I’m going to set my guess at:
