It’s easy as brushing your teeth every morning! Don’t tell me you don’t because that’s an automatic disqualification ;-) Here’s a list of stuff you can do to gain tickets for the contest:

- A blog post about the contest with a link to this post –
**8 Tickets** - Link to a sponsor that’s inside your desired package. You can include it in the blog post about this contest –
**6 Tickets** - Link to any of my posts. You can include this in the post about my contest too –
**4 Tickets** - To those who don’t have a blog or a website, subscribe to my RSS feed via email using the form on the sidebar. Include the email you used to subscribe in the comment –
**2 Tickets**

#### Contest Mechanics

The contest will be in a lottery system. There are only two steps to join, two steps!

- Grab a ticket (above)
- Drop a comment on this post and tell me what you’ve done and what package you want to bet your tickets on.

Let’s say you generated eight tickets, you can bet five tickets to package one and three to package two. Or you can bet seven tickets to package seven and the rest to package five. Any way you like.

Here’s an example comment:

I posted about this contest on my blog https://www.linkofyourpost.com/. That’s eight tickets for me. I want to bet five tickets to package one and three tickets to package two.

I will choose the winner for each package by drawing a ticket from a box – literally. It will be in a video post so all of you will see how it goes.

Of course the more tickets you have, the more chances of winning. Join now, this part of the contest will end March 9, 2008. Best of luck everyone.

By the way, what an awesome concept this competition. You get free backlinks and traffic.

Smart move pal.

I did all 4…so I’m entitled to 20 tickets right?

Here’s mine:

I choose to put 15 Tickets on Package 1 and 5 Tickets on package 7.

If we are not able to split them…I’ll go all 20 on Package 1.

Cheers,

Mr Review

Dude can you add another prize? 300 Ec from me Thanks.

Jake Cohen says

Ashutosh says

Well, it seems too competitive. But I dunno to design any banner, even if I win any. So count me for any package. I’ll try to provide ad banners from some external help. I’m giving you the link to you in the post itself. Link to sponsor is for iPencil, so you may note my preference for Package Two, but anything will be OK for me :) . So 8+6=14 tickets in all for me.

Check https://www.thecenturytimes.com

Ooops, but you din’t mention for how long these links need to be functional to qualify:) ? …I mean when are you going to verify all these?

Rajaram S says
