Okay so as promised I've come up with a new work at home contest.
There have been so many of you who have commented about how much you love my little ole blog. For most of you it has either helped you avoid scams, find legitimate work at home opportunities or consider a new career path. Many of you have even gone so far as to share my site with your mamas, sisters, “ray ray & them”, friends and/or acquaintances. Needless to say, you have my deepest appreciations for doing this.
But let's face it, my heart felt thanks ain't doing diddly for you. Yeah, yeah it's cool and all, but I think you would rather see my appreciation in the form of the Benjamins, aka cold hard cash. So It's time for you to get paid for spewing all that good WorkAtHomeNoScams.com propaganda across the web. lol Until further notice, every month I will select 3 people to win $100 each.
Here's How This Contest Will Work.
– A valid paypal account is required so I can pay you.
(Unfortunately, If your country isn't one of Paypal's approved locations I can't pay you.)
– You need to be a an active subscriber of this blog.
(I'll be announcing the winner ever month on this blog so you should be on my list to get your money!)
– You need to spread the word about WorkAtHomeNoScams.com (Prefereably with links back to the site!)
(We've included some approved and recommended methods below.)
– You must post a comment on this page detailing all your promotion activities.
(You must include the links of places you've mentioned us. You can update us as often as you like.)
– At the end of the month 3 winners will be chosen to receive $100 each via paypal and announced on this blog.
Why Are We Doing This?
“Whatcha” mean why? Are you questioning free money? I bet you were one of those kids that would raise their hand and ask the teacher why we weren't getting homework today! If you must know, obviously the goal of this contest is to give our little hole in the wall a lot of exposure. But more importantly, it's about rewarding our loyal subscribers that continue to support this blog and spread the love. At the end of the day we all win.
So the more promoting you do (which should be documented in the comments below), the better your chances of winning. The great thing about this is that every month (until further notice), 3 of our loyal subscribers will get a chance to win. This should really give everyone a fair shot. So if you don't win one month, you may still have a chance the following month.
We've also made it pretty easy to increase your chances of winning by providing you with various ways to enter below that AREN'T limited to one platform. But feel free to brainstorm your own. Just don't run around spamming people! If you think a mention is appropriate in a given situation then do it. But if it's not, please don't force the situation to increase your chances of winning. Because trust me, it will have the opposite effect.
Examples of Good Entries
1. Links are better!
When you go out on the internet and make mentions of my blog, always try to create active links that people can click on like this: WorkAtHomeNoScams.com A good example of someone that has done this and happens to be one of our first contest winners is Lina B who linked back to us on the following page: http://whatsfreeonthenet.blogspot.com/2009/07/work-at-home-sites-review.html
The following are examples of an entry that WON'T qualify to win: “Hi Eddy, I've posted a comment in Mylot.com” “Hey Eddy, I've emailed my friends about you” “Hey Eddy, I've told my friends about you.”
The second examples are not good entries for a number reasons. One, you need to provide the website address (URL) that you mentioned us not just the homepage of the site. This is just a matter of visiting the exact page you mentioned our site and copy the exact address. Two, Word of mouth & email referrals are nice but there is no way I can verify that you've done them except that you told me so.
So stick with making referrals on website pages and provide the EXACT page where you made the reference not just the homepage!
2. Multiple Entries Are Encouraged!
Enter many times a day, week or month as you want! In fact, the more entries the better your chances of winning. You can do the same type of entry as often as you like. For instance If you tweeted about my blog one day, then do it again the following day and multiple times a month. If you bookmarked one page on my site on one of the social bookmark sites listed below, why not bookmark more of the pages on my site. The contest is about getting the word out to as many people as possible. So run with it!
