A Winning Proposition :: Help Me Win And You Can Win Too

by derek on August 19, 2008 · 43 comments

In an effort to expand the reach of your blog, you have likely signed up for a variety of social media sites and forums that are frequented by like-minded people.
I’m no different, as you can see from this list of sites where you can find me.
Awhile back I had signed up with Perfect Business. With so many sites out there, you may not have come across this one before but it has been built for entrepreneurs to network and help one another build their business.
With so many different sites competing for my time, I have to admit that I have been neglecting my Perfect Business account; only checking a few times to post a note or connect with someone. The other day I decided to visit the site and provide more detail for my profile when I noticed a pretty sweet promotion that they are offering.
Perfect Business is running a business competition where the member with the most votes will win $1000 in business seed money. The best part is that anyone can vote for their favorite member, you do not have to be a member yourself to vote.
So…
I thought it would be interesting to see if the community could support me in an effort to win the competition. If you’re interested in helping me try to win the $1000, all you need to do is vote for me.
As I mentioned earlier, you do not need to be a member to vote so it will just take a moment of your time. In addition, you can vote for me once every day – so vote early and often!
While I am getting started with my effort to win this competition fairly late in the month, I am encouraged by the fact that the top entrepreneur right now only has approximately 160 votes. With approximately 200 unique visitors arriving to this blog each day and roughly 250 RSS subscribers, I think that I can skyrocket up the list pretty quickly.
Now, you’ll note that I said that there is a chance that you can win as well.
If all of you are able to support me and I win the competition, I will return the favor and select one of you to win $250 cash. Just by showing your support and clicking the Vote Now link, you have an opportunity to win your own cash prize!
Lets see if the power of the community can win this contest…
Support me with your vote!

You guys rock, I’m already up to fifth place. While there is still quite a bit of separation to first place, I think we can get there.
BTW, re: Nicole’s question, you only have to use one of the vote links. I’m looking to add a new vote link in the sidebar to make it even easier so you don’t have to come back to this post to vote every day.
Thanks again everyone!

Okay thanks. Sorry I could not keep my word. My broad band router gave endless trouble and has just been replaced. I hope that you win. All the best.

Voted for you, and will keep voting. Be easy for you to reach upto no. 3, but the two above that are slightly more difficult. You’re gonna need to push this a lot more aggressively.

derek August 24, 2008 at 8:25 pm

Yeah, the voting is over at the end of the month. It looks like another contestant is running away with first place but I should make the top ten.

Reply

Andrea August 24, 2008 at 8:42 pm

can you try again for Sept? i bet we all can pull it off if we have a fair start.

Reply

derek August 24, 2008 at 8:46 pm

I believe there will be another contest starting up in September so we can certainly give it a shot!

This is quite interesting, it looks like they have the same thing every month….wonder how long it is going to take for someone to find a way to game the system and them to then put an end to this promotion.

I voted for you as well.
Did you notice that the former leader has been removed from the contest? You’re within striking distance of the top spot but I have about 160+ votes to catch up.
