Written by Erz on Friday, October 19, 2007

Snoopy With the Zee is having a sizzling contest. This is part of his project to get himself a new Mini Cooper, which involves him selling ad spots on the car surface of the Mini Cooper. Interesting!

In relation to this, he is having a Get Me A Mini contest to encourage people to purchase the ad spots. When all ad spots are sold out or if at least 40 are sold by April 2009, he will draw a winner for a $2,000 Sony Vaio laptop. There are several ways to enter this contest so check out the full contest details here.

To give him a helping hand, check out the Get Me A Mini web page with all the details on how you can purchase the ad spots.

Free Blog Makeover Contest

Written by Erz on Friday, October 19, 2007

John Cow is holding a contest to give away a free blog makeover, sponsored by weborithm. To enter, all you need to do is to blog on why you think your blog deserves a makeover. Remember, the post must be a minimum of 200 words and you can link back to the contest post and weborithm. Contest ends 31st October.

For me, I think my blog deserves a makeover as it is a new blog and I haven’t had the time to come up with a really great design for the blog. As you can see, I’ve been concentrating on building up content and trying to increase viewership so the blog design is rather dull and drab. I’m sure that weborithm can change that if I were to win this – it would certainly be a treat for my viewers and also great publicity for weborithm if viewers could be greeted with a gorgeous blog design plus the latest in content which I’m putting my efforts into at the moment. The main focus of my blog is on getting the latest and most worthwhile blog contests to those who visit the site. As you can tell, despite the many posts, I do not include every single blog contest out there. I only include those which are relatively easy to enter and/or with relatively good prizes on display. So I’ve already filtered out those contests with too many terms and conditions to enter while only offering a meager prize such as a hair clip or a bookmark. That’s how this blog differs from the multitude of contest blogs out there. With a makeover, the refreshing look will add to the pleasure for viewers of the site, even as they pick out juicy details about the latest and best contests – so it will be double the pleasure!

Amazing 5,000 Business Cards Giveaway by YGG & Orange32

Written by Erz on Friday, October 19, 2007

YGG and Orange32 are having a smashing contest. They will be giving away 5,000, yes 5,000 business cards to a lucky blogger who writes the best post (as judged by them) about business cards and links back to the contest post and to the Orange32’s website. Contest ends 19th October so hurry if you’re keen.

I’m a little late on this but better late than never. What’s so interesting about a business card? I’ve always been fascinated with the innovative business cards that people come up with. Here are a few tips I gathered from some of these ‘eccentric’ card twisters on how to make your business card stand out (disclaimer: I won’t be responsible if you lose all your clients this way!):-

If nobody knows what the position listed on your card means, you’ve succeeded. One guy called himself ‘King of wonderland’. He was a welfare officer.

Don’t go with the flow – be creative. I once got a card which was totally blank except for the words in fine print – see overleaf. On the back was just a website address. Crappy you might say but I was curious and checked out his website which had his full CV on it. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one.

Everyone’s a CEO now. Call yourself a CEO like it’s a generic term. I saw a guy who had CEO and in very small print – office management – basically just an office assistant.

Make em’ 3-D. Talking about birthday cards, I saw a business card which looked like one – three dimensional – really eye-catching.

Have sound! I’ve not seen one but a friend suggested that you include a small audio chip to the card which plays back the details on the card when you press it – great for the handicapped as well.

So if you’re up for it, throw away your old-fashioned business cards and get your creative juices flowing!
