Holding competitions are a great way to increase traffic to your site. I have entered a few and even won a t-shirt once. After looking at the results of some competitions and having organized one myself, I can safely conclude that the popularity of a blog contest, which is measured by the number of entrants, is directly proportional to the value of the prize. In other words, the bigger the prize, the higher the number of people entering the competition.
So what do you say when I tell you that one blogger is offering $2500 as the prize and all you have to do is copy and paste the following into your blog:
Over at Ashwin’s blog, you will find one crazy blog owner!! You can win $2500!! To enter just copy this text and paste it in your blog!! But hurry, this competition will not last long! So get posting!Crazy but it's true. It's got to be the mother of all Blog competitions so far. However, I am just wondering how's Ashwin is going to choose the winner because the blog doesn't say anything. Anyway, I am joining in all the same.
I can see that it is definitely attracted a lot of attention as there were 178 responses to his post when I last checked.
FYI, Ashwin Khanna is only 18 year. He's from the UK and just started his blog.
