Contest Clue #19 – “Why I Blog” Videos

March 28, 2008 - Written by Gyutae Park  

This clue is for additional entries into the Craziest Internet Marketing Contest You’ve Ever Seen – a HUGE contest now with over $14,575 in some insane prizes. Winners will be selected by random draw on April 2 so get in now!

And now for the 19th clue of the contest… “Why I Blog” Videos.

Performing this action will give you 10 extra entries for the contest.

Clue #19 – “Why I Blog” Videos

This is another contest clue submitted by a Winning the Web reader. Emma of It’s Write Now had a great idea. She says to “make a video introducing yourself and mention the contest. Or for super exposure Problogger is going to post videos submitted by people who say why they blog.” Darren Rowse of Problogger is running a group video project where readers submit videos on “why they blog” that will be featured on the Problogger site. It’s your time to shine!

The action is this:

Create a short video on “why you blog” and give a mention to this contest and Winning the Web (and don’t forget your own blog too). Post a comment with a link to your video on both Darren’s group video project post as well as this post. The video must be submitted no later than April 1. 10 easy entries as long as you’re not camera shy.

This is a great way to get started with video blogging and increase exposure for yourself as a blogger. I’ll be submitting my own video as well so be on the lookout. 😉

well this video contest is good but better to give a sure prize to the best video rather than random 😛

Good idea. I don’t have any equipment though to make one.

Good choice, I must be thinking like a marketer. I’m still a little camera shy, but I did recently purchase the Flip video camera, so you might see something from me. 🙂

Nice videos everyone. Looking forward to seeing more.

Guess I am going to have to pass on the video. Not enough time left to wrap everything up. Good idea though.
