Lessons Learned In A Blog Contest

Janette Toral and MakoyThe Big Mak Blog Contest has ended and tons of prizes have been given away. One of my sponsors, Janette Toral sent me a message on Google Talk days ago and told me that she is preparing an article about my contest. It is a Q&A article by the way with the lessons that I have learned in my contest.

Here is one Q&A from that article:

Janette: What surprised you about how the contest played out? (positive and/or negative)

Makoy: It surprised me that there are really contestants that are dead serious in winning. In my contest, there are three contestants that are very eager to win. It just boils down on the strategy and understanding well the mechanics to win. What's also surprising is that contestants know me a lot by reading my old and present posts. I even tagged a contestant a stalker since she knows many things about me. She read all my posts from the start I think.

Please visit SEO Discoveries & Keyword Experiment for the complete online interview.

Janette Toral by the way is the author of the book "Blogging From Home" and co-author in "Philippine Internet Review: 10 Years of Internet History (1994 - 2004)." She is also the founder of Philippine Internet Commerce Society, which she served President for five years.

Thanks Ate Janette!

    Congrats on the contest Makoy!

    As a blogger new on contests , I would rather go for those that has random selection of winners rather than those that go on point system. I am okay with blogging about the contest,subscribing to email and faveing on technorati since i do that anyway to blogs i like, but if i have to follow you around, I would feel like a stalker :-)

    The upside of this contest for me is that I get to receive updates after subscribing to you on email. You are just a click away now :-)

    Again, hats off to you for pulling this off!

    Thanks Dinah. That is actually one of my worries that's why in the contest, i have a point and raffle system. the bigger prizes are on the points system though.
