comment contest prizes

Here is your chance to win an Amazon Kindle, an Ipod Nano or an Ipod Shuffle! It’s extra simple to participate, so don’t miss your chance. Let me explain what this is all about…

I’d like to announce the very first Commenting Contest on Dukeo which starts Right Now! (May 8th, 2012) and will go on for 60 days (until July 6th at Midnight).

The goal of this contest is to bring more interactivity to this blog and create friendly relationship among Dukeo’s readers, by allowing you to react to the articles as well as interact with each other.

This contest is open to EVERYONE without any country limitation. If for any reason it’s too complicated to get the prize delivered to your country, I’ll send the value of the prize through Paypal so you can buy it yourself (or do whatever you want with the money).

How To Win The Commenting Contest

Winning this tournament couldn’t be more simple: All you need to do is post more comments on Dukeo than other people between the contest starting and ending date.

    Hi Ste, this sounds exciting. it will be interesting to see who gets the kindle.

    I’ll also be checking your Alexa ranking to see if your contest gives you a boost.

    If it does, that will be one more validation that contests work. So I am looking forward to checking this out.

    Thanks for providing the contest and prizes.

      Contests have always worked on my site. Usually use it to get things I want by getting the product for free and then doing a product review with a giveaway of the product. Usually I have the reader go the the seller´s site and tell me what their favored product is from the seller´s site and then come back to my site to leave a comment to enter to win the contest. Works like a charm.
