Your Brand New Blog Engage Membership is Waiting For You

The Blog Engage Giveaway here on Basic Blog Tips lasted for an entire month! Many of the contestants threw their hats in the ring the very first day the contest started and they did an outstanding job of tweeting and promoting the contest. Each contestant was also required to subscribe to my YouTube channel, comment on the post and follow @BasicBlogTips on Twitter. Brian, owner of Blog Engage, convinced me to use Rafflecopter to manage the contest and tabulate the votes. I’m so glad he did! The winners were picked by and this helps keep the results fair and makes any contest easier to manage.

If you ever want to use Rafflecopter for a contest or giveaway, watch the tutorial from Justin at DragonBlogger who does an awesome job of explaining how the system works (you’ll find his video at the bottom of this post).

I’m pleased to announce…

  10. Hey Ileane

    What an awesome way to start the day. Checking my emails this morning to find I’d won a memebership to Blog Engage ( I almost dropped my cup of tea)

    i checked out the site and said to myself “why didn’t i know about BlogEngage sooner”? LOL

    if [BlogEngage] has another content in the future, I just might throw my hat in, and see what’s good on getting a free membership :-)

  13. Shonda

    Bummer I missed the contest. Jeesh. January is such a crazy month over here. Thanks for the link to Jym’s blog to participate.

    • don’t sweat it about missing the blog engage contest. The beauty of it is that hopefully, there will be another contest. In addition, there’s all sorts of wonderful opportunities on the World Wide Web from bloggers and Internet marketers. It’s not the end of the world :-)

    • Shonda

      Thank you, Ileane. I found a couple other Blog Engage contests to enter. I’ve never really entered into any contests before but I am feeling the contest bug this year so far… to trying new things. Thank you.

      • Shonda, I’m sure you’ll end up winning if you keep retweeting on a daily basis. Tim Arthur retweeted the contest faithfully everyday and his name was the first won that was selected. The more entries you have, the better your chances of winning!

  14. I’m looking forward to hearing about another exciting blog engage contest momentarily. While I don’t do contests on the World Wide Web that much, I just may throw my hat in on the next contest, and see what fruit emerges from it :-)

  15. great it was a great offer but m not so much lucky i missed that chance because i got it too late now… but i wish this contest to take place again because i want to take part
