Well, not quite a date, but still how does an intimate 1-on-1 consultation with one of the world’s top search engine marketers/optimization experts sound?
I saw this in Jeremy “Shoemoney” Schoemaker’s post “Emom Holds Birthday Contest”
Wendy Piersall, owner of eMoms, is celebrating her blog’s one year birthday.
She’s roped in a number of the Elite Retreat faculty to provide prizes and all participants are eligible for a discount coupon for the next event.
The highlight, a phone consultation with Jeremy and Wendy on how to grow your business or blog.
The check Jeremy’s holding is for an Azoogle Ad.
Among the other prizes:
- Aaron Wall’s SEO Book (an excellent resource for Search Engine Optimization)
- A premium membership to Lee Dodd’s Earners Forum
And a number of other prizes.
Contests are one of the oldest and remain one of the best ways to promote your blog, forum or website. (Lee gives away cell phones in contests on some of his forums).
But rather than just give away your own products, you can instead working with other online marketers who’ll sponsor prizes or services. In this way, you’ll build your relationship and lay the ground for future collaborations and joint ventures.
The prize winners are not just the only winners now. As a contest participant, you’ll benefit too. The contest organizer will inevitably come over and take a look at your site if you’ve linked to them. If your content is sticky, you’d gain another reader, with the possibility that you’ll be mentioned on their site at some point.)
So the chances of winning a prize might be relatively small. However, your “win” in intangible benefits can be infinitely greater.
