Free Advertising :: Enter For Your Chance To Win

by derek on April 4, 2008 · 62 comments

The other day while recapping my blog earnings, I mentioned that I wanted to do a little something for the community as a small token of appreciation for all that you do here.

How does some free advertising sound?

There are four ad spots that I am going to be giving away for a one month run. Three of the ad spots will exist in the right sidebar and will consist of a 125×125 banner ad. The fourth ad slot will run in the footer of alternating RSS posts, visible to all of my RSS readers.
Sounds like a pretty sweet deal, doesn’t it? πŸ˜‰
This blog has a PR4 rating and has nice upward trend of traffic over the last six months. With this free advertising you will have the chance to gain some additional exposure for your own blog or business.

How To Enter

For those that are regulars here, this will come as no surprise but the entry requirements are extremely easy – simply leave a comment on this post and you’re entered for your chance to win!

  • Comments will be accepted until 11:59pm Central, April 11th, 2008.
  • Only one entry per person will be accepted.
  • Winners will be selected at random using the Random Integer Generator on Saturday, April 12th, 2008.
  • Winners will have seven days to respond with their banner or text ad. In the event a winner does not respond, an alternate winner will be selected.

If you are selected as one of the winners for the 125×125 banner ad and do not currently have an advertisement designed, I will offer to help create something with the advance warning that my graphics skills are marginal.
Good luck everyone!

Did you make the “WIN This Ad Space” icon? Doesn’t look bad to me at all.

Yeah, I did make that icon as well as the other one for Spicy Tech Deals as well. I’m a little hard on my own skill level sometimes. πŸ˜‰

Jeff Zbar April 6, 2008 at 5:29 pm

Uh, so let me get this straight… Commenting on blogs is a great way to build online awareness and (hopefully) drive traffic to one’s own blog. Making friends online – a la, doing Derek a solid and responding to his request for entries – is good joo joo. Letting people see that I’m a good online doobie (hopefully) will yield good kharma that will bless me in this life and beyond (well, at least this life – don’t know about tomorrow, much less ‘beyond’). And I’ve got an idle 90 seconds to actually invest in typing this ‘entry.’
So… what’s the catch? πŸ˜‰
