THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED!

Last Saturday I launched a new contest to giveaway 2 flip mino’s and (possible) a MacBook AIR.  To enter all you had to do is

  1. follow me on twitter.
  2. Tweet : “Just entered to win a flip minoHD. Just follow @shoemoney and retweet. http://xr.com/fliphd”.

If I got over 20k followers before February I would throw in a Macbook AIR.

Here is a screenshot from twittercounter showing when we started the contest.

@shoemoney was one of the most retweeted items on twitter for days!

Picked up about 2k followers the first 2 days then it tailed off.  This is probably partially because I went to las vegas for 4 days.

I also created a page with all the entries and odds to win.  (this page is getting a lot of traffic)

We will direct message the winners starting on Feb 1st (hence why you need to follow) and give you 24 hours to respond until we get 2 winners. Good luck!

Since then I have had many companies inquire how they can get in on this cutting edge twitter contest.

If you or your company would like to donate a prize please use our contact form for with your proposal.

  1. What offensive tweet did you put out there in mid-October when every follower left you for a day?

    1. Interesting Never heard about people leaving him on Twitter , probably was a glitch

    2. Well if you guys want to win another flip mino HD then come over to my blog and enter.

  2. Sorry, there are too many bad things going on in our real lives to get involved in this childesh nonsense these days.

    1. are you frickin kidding me? in the time it took you to comment you could have done it.

      1. Gina showed me the light, I unfollowed you and your childish nonsense. hahaha, I don’t want to win anything!

          1. I’m asking myself the same question dude. Are these people really this rude or just kidding?

          2. If you still din’t realize.. let me tell you.. THESE PEOPLE AREN’T RUDE NOR ARE THEY KIDDING ! 😛 They are just jealous or pissed with the tweets they are getting from the people they are following lol

    1. I think this is a small mountain to climb especially considering the fact that it sounds like other companies are going to be adding prizes

      1. After I place Twitter widget on my blog, I’m getting an average of 3 – 5 new followers daily. I think this is a good start. But, earning 20k followers, we must do some magic.

    1. Big numbers, although with every new tweet our odds of winning reduce !

      Good luch with reaching the 20K, hopefully you will reach a tipping point very soon and it will start to go mental.

  3. Hey Shoe I checked out the contest page and something must be up with the script that picks up the contestants because I tweeted about the contest and for some reason I’m not on that list..???

  4. Nice contest Shoe! I like my odds as of right now – (Odds of winning a prize : 489:1) lol

  5. yeah Gina, it’s so much better to stay focused on all the bad stuff than having a break from it and a chance to win some great prizes to boot! “Life is what you make it! Always has been, always will be”
    Keep up the fun stuff Shoe!

  6. I haven’t gotten into twitter too much, but its amazing to see what you are doing with it

  7. I think it is late to tempt people with the MacBook Air(you know you won’t break 20k by then). . .but I entered anyways

  8. very cool I hope you hit the 20K. Greg Ellison.

  9. Wow, Twitter contests are exploding everywhere as well as your followers, yet I STILL see people commenting on how you can’t do anything with Twitter…

  11. Pretty Darn Cool =) , I am doing a twitter contest as well but mines pretty small compared to yours just an Apple Touch Give away

  17. These contests only work for the biggies.. If someone with absolute no followers on twitters has the same contest.. trust me.. he won’t even reach 200! But lets see what happens.. 😀 Will ShoeMoney hit the 20k mark? or will he hit the 25k mark? 😀 Good luck shoe.. 😀

  18. 2K in a couple days is just unbelievable… I wonder if I’ll reach that feat by the end of this year, because my 2009 resolution was 1000. :/

  20. Thanks for the extra push to use Twitter. i still can’t seem to get a handle on how to use the site fluently. It seems to promise both more and less at the same time….

  21. Thanks for having a cool contest, following both you and John Chow now. I don’t usually win stuff like this, but it’s nifty just the same.

  34. Nice numbers on the contest! I l know I’m a little late on commenting on this post. But it definitely helps to have a nice base to push your initial promotion through the roof.

    I wanted to share a contest platform I recently launched called, http://skril.com.

    It allows you to create contests which use OAuth from twitter, facebook, yahoo, google friend connect, linkedin, myspace, digg, friendfeed, and youtube.

    You define the prize and bonus prize (for people who help promote your contest via status update or comment on your youtube video) and we handle all the entry collection, status updates, email confirmations, and provide a simple widget for collecting entries from your site.

    Would love to hear feedback. Good luck with future contests!

    Thanks,
    Greg
