Post a Review and Make Easy Money – Recap 1
A few days ago, I launched a Review Contest in preparation for Dukeo’s second anniversary. The idea is extremely simple: you write a review of Dukeo on your own blog, follow a few rules, and you’re automatically entered to win a $200 cash prize.

I started receiving reviews and I would like to share some love with the authors, so I’m going to post a recap of the reviews I received so far.
Note: These reviews are not posted in preference order. I add them to my list as they hit my email inbox.
1/ The very first review that I received was written by Connor Janzen on his blog Janzen Web Dynamics. His review titled: “Dukeo Blogging Resource” was live only a couple hours after the contest went live. Connor’s post is well structured and goes over several aspects of Dukeo, from information organization to content.
2/ The second review was written by Keith Matthews. His review titled: “DUKEO Contest!!!” presents Dukeo with a very personal voice. It’s like listening to a guy speaking… Interesting.
3/ The third review, published by Mary H. Ruth on her blog Virtual Executive Assistant is titled: “Internet Marketers: Do You Know Dukeo?”. In this very straight-forward review, Mary is not afraid to explain what she doesn’t like about Dukeo. This is very refreshing as I always appreciate honesty in blogging.
4/ Howard Lee Harkness was the fourth person to submit a review for this contest. His review, titled: “Getting More Income” left me a little skeptical in the beginning because the first half of the post is not a review at all. But if you read it until the second half, you’ll get Howard’s views on Dukeo.
5/ The next review was posted by Kimboo York on her personal blog Kim Boo San. Her review, creatively titled: “Dukeo website review, because I have no shame and no money”, is mostly a review of Dukeo’s design, structure and navigation. It’s interesting to see how some things are perceived by visitors !
Sidenote: The rules for this contest are extremely simple, but it appears that some bloggers really like trying to mislead people and twist the rules… As a result, I have also received a couple of reviews which do not qualify for the contest. Here is why:
- the review can’t be included inside of a longer post about unrelated things, (you can’t have a “weekly recap” with just one paragraph about the contest)
- the review must clearly disclose that it’s part of a contest to win a prize. (don’t try misleading the reader, Dukeo doesn’t support misleading bloggers)
I’ll keep posting recaps of the reviews I’ll receive. So if you want a chance to win $200, some link love as well as some exposure for your blog, write your review now!
