Twitter Contest – Win a $497 Blog Mastermind Course

It’s time to hold my first Twitter only contest. That’s right, the only way to enter this contest is by being on Twitter. The contest is going to be really simple to enter and I will have some really nice prizes up for grabs, starting with a $497 membership into the Yaro Stark’s Blog Mastermind program. I’ll add more prizes in the coming days but this will be a good start. If you wish to offer a prize in exchange for some press, send me an email. I’m looking for big prizes that cost hundreds of dollars.

Blog Mastermind is by far the most complete course on blogging that I have ever came across. If you follow the six month course, there should be no reason why you couldn’t make full time income with part time blogging. Yaro has students making up to $30,000 per month with blogs valued at $5 million. I highly recommend anyone who’s thinking about making money by blogging to enroll in this course. Here’s how you can win it.

  1. Follow me on Twitter.
  2. Tweet the following message to your followers

    Just entered the $497 Blog Mastermind contest. You can win by following @JohnChow and retweet. He follows back too!

The script I’m using to track entries is set up to detect so make sure you have that item if you want to create your own tweet. This contest is open to anyone in the Twitter world. The winner will be announce at the end of the month or when I hit 10,000 followers, whichever comes first. Good luck and enter now!

What Is Twitter Anyway?

For the dozen or so people who are still in the dark about what Twitter is and why they should be on it, this video should help explain it in plain English.

    1. Richard M says:

      Twitter is addicting once you join you’ll never want to leave. The Power Twitter firefox extension is a must have, unless of course you prefer TweetDeck.

    2. You should create a Twitter account. It’s great.

  6. John says:

  21. Rich says:

    Awesome contest John, you continue to deliver.

  22. I have tweet it. Wish me luck

  23. Done as @sensonize 😀

  24. More Twitter spam.
    If more than 5 people I followed on twitter sent the same tweet, I’d see it as spam and stop following them straight away.
    The sooner Twitter stop this type of self promotion the better otherwise it will just become another spam service.

  25. Zak Show says:
