Chance To Win Court's Money

by derek on May 22, 2007 · 4 comments

Last week there was a guest post over at eMoms by Court Tuttle on his experiement with becoming a blogging socialite.
Given my own goals to be more social this month, I was naturally drawn to this post and began to explore Court’s blog after reading his guest post. As I mentioned the other day, writing a guest post can bring you new traffic and that is how I found Court.
Win Money
As I explored Court’s blog, I came across his post about giving readers the chance to win all of his blogging income from the month of May if you can guess the total value within a dollar.
Last month Court earned just over $293.00 so the lucky winner will receive a nice little chunk of change if they can guess the correct number. It’s really quite simple to enter the contest as you can see below.

  • Create a post on your blog, copy these rules and paste them into the post.
  • Make a guess! Link to my homepage with the text ‘make money online $1.00′, replacing the $1.00 with the amount of your guess. Example: make money online $100.56.
  • Leave this link to the rules page intact.
  • Use my contact page to confirm your entry by letting me know (make sure to include the URL of your post)! I will find most of them, but let me know to make sure!

My Entry
make money online $412.27
Obviously one question that comes to mind is how any of us will truly know Court’s true earnings for the month to determine if there is a winner. While this may be an absolutely evil linkbaiting plan with no intention to pay out, I have faith in Court that he is an honest guy and would not try to pull a fast one on his readers.
If you take a chance by submitting your own entry to the contest, good luck to you but I am feeling the *mojo* with my guess so your efforts will be futile! 😉

Money is quite an effective tool to increase your site’s on-line traffic. Capitalism indeed has found its way to the realm of blogging.

You’re right that cold, hard cash is an amazing tool to encourage people to visit and participate.

Hi Derek
Your prediction is just about $2 shy of my prediction.
If Court’s May earnings lands at $413, we may have a chance to share the booty!

I think Court is making a very interesting link campaign with this 🙂
