Craziest Blog Contest Ever Ends with a BANG – Are You a Winner?

April 2, 2008 - Written by Gyutae Park  

So about the Hummer… That was an April Fools joke. Hopefully none of you were fooled too badly, but the way things are going with this contest, a Hummer in the prize pool is hardly unbelievable.

It’s been a long 3 week contest with unbelievable results. Racking up all of the entries, putting the data into spreadsheets, and randomly selecting winners in Excel took nearly 10 hours. Its 6 AM here and I’ve been up all night doing this. I guess a crazy contest deserves a crazy ending, no? Anyway, without further adieu, here it is… The winners of the Craziest Internet Marketing Contest You’ve Ever Seen!

Congratulations to all of the winners!

If you see your name above, you have until Sunday night to claim your prize. Contact me and I’ll get your prize set up for you. Otherwise, I’m sure a lot of people would love to have it. I’ll be out of town for the next 5 days so don’t freak out if it takes longer for me to respond.

Now I’m off to bed, then flying to San Francisco for the Elite Retreat tomorrow afternoon. I’ll keep you updated.

Wow…just in time! Was off to bed myself, and figured I’d check to see if any new posts were made. Wasn’t expecting to see the winners already. I won too! Gratz to everyone who won something.

Thanks Gyutae for the effort you put in to make this contest happen. Was definitely fun, and I know it served its purpose. WTW and all the sponsors got a ton of exposure I’m sure. I’m currently using Twitter and Pepperjam now because of it.

Awesome and congrats to all the winners as well as to Gyutae and all the sponsors for such a huge finish. Can’t wait to see the next one Gyutae though I assume it will be hard to top this…unless you really do find a sponsor to cover a hummer lol ;). Also can’t wait to see your post contest reports and stats and new tips. Bet you are glad you can almost get started back to “regular” blogging again lol.

Thanks Gyutae and all the sponsors!

 
DotDriven on April 2nd, 2008

Actually it’s just one prize that lasts for 3 months, therefore the 3 woots!

Thanks and Underground Web Design, Gyutae!

And Gyutae, I’d love to interview you on my radio show about this contest and what you’ve learned. It would make a great product for YOU to use.

We want to hear the full scoop on Elite Retreat! Don’t party with Shoemoney too much, he’s liable to get you in trouble.

 
Etienne Teo on April 3rd, 2008

I am going to spam you contest non-winners to join my contest *evil grant from Gyutae! haha! To those who have not won anything from Gyutae, it’s time to move on and join other blog contest.

There are so many winners here today, congrats to all!

Just like putting your business card in every ipod giveaway at trade shows. I never win.

Well congrats to the top 50+ winners that also get a Pingo phone card. Try it out and let me know what you think of the service. I hope we can establish an affiliate partnership.

Some people just have no courtesy. If you have a problem with Gyutae, you should take it up with him instead of smearing his reputation on his own blog.

Gyutae Park on April 13th, 2008

Thanks for the back up Keith. I actually received an email that the comment was posted by an imposter.

 
Jason on April 13th, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

Please see my below comment regarding impersonation of myself.

 
 
Jason on April 13th, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

That post was not made by me…someone is impersonating me. I have emailed Mr. Park about its deletion.

Jason

 
California Web Design on April 13th, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

Jason on April 13th, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email
