Over the last 2 or 3 weeks a couple of events have taken place that got me thinking about another way to increase the traffic to my blog.
We all want to get more traffic to our blogs. I have done several posts on my blog that address different ways of getting more traffic to a blog. If you did not see them when I wrote them you can go back and read them now. 4 Benefits Of Commenting, I Published My Post, Now What?, and How To Use Attraction Marketing
This is another post on how to get more traffic to your blog but first what got me inspired to think about doing this particular activity.
Barry Wells Holds A Competition
Barry and Steve King recently completed a product called Easy Auction Income a membership site full of videos and instructions on making money selling on eBay.
Barry and Steve held a competition on Marketing Mini Class where they gave away 3 memberships to their new product, Easy Auction Income, and Barry held a competition on his own site barry-wells.com where he gave away one membership.
While reading and commenting on blogs I visited Barry’s blog and found his post announcing his competition. Since I was over a week late getting there I really thought that I had missed out. I left my comment anyway including everything I was asked to in order to win.
You can imagine my surprise when I won. I could not believe it.
I am so excited to get started using Easy Auction Income. I have tried to make money on eBay in the past and never really figured it out. Now I have a complete guide that will walk me though everything and I know where I can go to ask questions.
I have entered quite a few competitions and have actually won several. I am always surprised when I win.
Andy Bailey Is Giving Copies Of Comment Luv Premium To All Who Donate
I received an email from Andy Bailey the other day. He is offering to give a full lifetime license to CommentLuv Premium for free to anyone who donates more than £25 (GBP) to Movember.
What is Movember? Well it is an organization where men raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health.
If you are interested in donating and receiving a full lifetime license to CommentLuv you have to donate by November 22, 2013.
Here are the instructions from Andy’s email:
* Visit my Movember page donation page before Friday 22nd Nov.
* donate £25 or more with PayPal or credit card
* send me (Andy) your name, email and copy of your receipt (you’ll get a PDF sent by the site)
Now the really great thing about this is that Andy is willing to put the CommentLuv membership in anyone’s name that you tell him to. This means you can give the full lifetime license to CommentLuv away on your blog if you want to.
I am a couple of days late getting my post up this week so there is only a day or so left on Andy’s offer. I am sorry.
This is only one idea of something to give away though. There are lots of other things you can give away including a product of your own like Barry did. You can also try contacting a product creator and ask if they will give you a discount on their product since you are giving it away and promoting it in a blog post.
This Leads To…
These two things got me thinking that maybe I should have a competition on my blog. I could always use more traffic and it would be kind of fun to host a competition.
Competitions Lead To More Traffic
Competitions bring in more traffic especially if the reward is something that a lot of people want.
I would think a copy of CommentLuv Premium would be a great item to give away. I have not decided if I am going to get the copy of CommentLuv to give away yet but I am thinking I may have a competition when I release my product and give away a FREE copy of it.
What about you?
Have you ever hosted a competition? If you have how did it work out for you? If you have not is this something you see yourself doing anytime?
I would love to hear what you think.
