A few weeks 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 would like to share some love with the authors of the reviews I’ve received, so I’m going to post a recap of them.
Note: These reviews are not posted in preference order. I add them to my list as they hit my email inbox.
1/ The first review I received for this batch was written by Delia on Blog Formatting. This very well written post titled: “10 ways I’d change dukeo.com to make it better“, is divided in 2 parts: 10 things Delia would change and 10 things Delia would keep.
2/ Today’s second review was written by Steve Miller on his blog Emergency Prepping Help. In this short review titled: “Dukeo Review (You Can Win Too!)“, Steve goes straight to the point: No hype in that post.
3/ The third review was written by Jena Isle on her personal blog Jena Isle Online. Her review is titled: “Earn $200 Cold Cash: Write a Review about Dukeo Contest“. Jena briefly goes over the design and content of Dukeo in a pros/cons post.
4/ The next review was written by RCONNORIII (sorry, I can’t find a real name anywhere) on his blog Extra Cash Online. In his review titled: “Dukeo.com Review 2013“, the author makes a quick overview of Dukeo.
5/ The fifth review, written by Sharon Kaye Bohlke on her blog Exercises In Love, probably has the longest title in this content: “A New Blogger’s Review of Stephane Kerwer’s Dukeo.com Website for Making Money Online“. Sharon’s review is clear and well-written, however it could have used some subtitles to break it down in pieces easier to digest.
7/ The final entry for this content was written by Lanita Ford on her personal blog. In this review, titled: “Choosing A Mentor When You Don’t Have A Dime To Your Name! | Can Your Mentor Be Trusted“, Lanita goes on a journey to discover if Dukeo can be trusted as a source of information.
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)
This contest is now closed and the winners will be anounced shortly. Stay tuned!
