So the July-August comment contest which started out as just something I thought I would try seemed to have went over pretty well… we sent out over 65 ShoeMoney shirts world wide to 14 different countries! Our grand price winner Margie took home the MacBook AIR!
As far as blog traffic the traffic was up about 30% overall and comments increased a decent margin also.
We had many companies offer to sponsor the next contest but I gave Neil Patel over at QuickSprout the option to sponsor again and he said that he loved all the traffic from the first contest and would be happy to give away another Macbook AIR.
I pitched it to Market Leverage and they agreed!
But I wanted to also do something more… so this month we are also giving away a Regular Macbook (yes the one with 2 usb ports and a cd/dvd dual layer).
So the Grand prize winner will now have their choice between the MacBook Air or the standard Macbook and the runner up will get the other
So how does it work again? Each day we will randomly select 1 commentator from that days posts. That person will go into a pool that will be choosen from at the end to win the grand prize or one of the other many prizes we will have. You can check the official comment contest page for more details (and listing of daily winners).
If you or your company would like to donate a product for the next comment contest giveaway please use our contact form. Your prizes must be available to anyone anywhere in the world (where legal).
This contest just like the last is open to anyone anywhere in the world as long as its legal for me to ship to you ;).
