Blog World Expo – Win Cash Money!

written by John Chow on September 24, 2008

Secure Affiliate Marketing

Back during the Affiliate Summit in Boston, I stepped into the Market Leverage Cashinator to grab some cash to give away to a reader. The object at Blog World Expo was to win the cash from the Cashinator Challenge issued by Shoemoney. However, and as you’ve no doubt saw, the challenge was won by Tyler Cruz.

While I may not have the $500+ that Tyler won to give away, I still want to give a lucky reader some cash. Therefore, I decided to go back into the Cashinator (Market Leverage must hate me by now) to grab more cash.

Not only am I giving away the crash I grabbed, Joe from JoeTech gave me the cash he grabbed to toss into the pot. Plus, I’ll toss in the cash I stole from the Cashinator as well.

To enter the Market Leverage Cash Money contest, simply reply to this post and I’ll give you one entry. However, If you blog about this contest and send a trackback, I’ll give you five entries. Your blog post must link to this post, and Market Leverage. I will draw the winner this Saturday at Dot Com Pho. How much cash can you win? Watch the video and find out. Good luck!

Dina September 24, 2008 at 6:55 pm

Are we going to have to enter to win our money back John? Or maybe we can use it to hire security when you’re around. Just kidding, but good luck to all the contest participants. Hope to see you at the MarketLeverage Cashinator in person soon!

Chris Jacobson September 24, 2008 at 6:59 pm

Here’s my entry.

By the way, John… what’s the difference between cash and money?

John Chow September 25, 2008 at 8:23 am

One is cash, the other is money. :)

TYCP Entertainment Magazine September 26, 2008 at 5:06 pm

Jami G. September 24, 2008 at 10:32 pm

Yes!! My suggestion to give back to a reader worked. But John, when I said “give the cash to a reader”, I meant “give the cash to me”.

I suppose entering the contest is better than nothin’. Cheers!

clickusername September 24, 2008 at 10:36 pm

The money will come in handy for me to pick up a few shares of Morgan Stanley.

Ben September 24, 2008 at 10:38 pm

contests are fun. I guess a +1 entry for me. Also, looks like someone successfully posted a spam comment on your blog (user nierijl)

Sport betting champs September 24, 2008 at 11:58 pm

Free money is free money, count me in :D

Ms. Missive September 25, 2008 at 12:24 am

I’m not sure a review about this contest will work well with my blog site. (We’re two OIF veterans gabbing about the news and politics.)

But one entry is better than none!

The pirates September 26, 2008 at 5:40 pm

Everybody needs a quick infusion of cash from time to time. These ideas bring in money fast, and many can also be done at flexible times, so it’s easier to arrange child care with a friend or family member for free.

* Have a garage sale. By using a few easy tricks, like posting fliers at grocery stores and Laundromats, making signs that can be seen from nearby busy streets and displaying your items in a department-store style, you can increase the amount your sale brings in. Find out how to earn more with Garage Sale 101 tips.
* Sell on eBay. Books, CDs, unused sports or exercise equipment, clothing, novelty items — people buy all kinds of things. Even if you’re selling several small items, the money can add up. Just make sure the buyer, not you, pays the cost of shipping.
