Vote for Ashley Chow and You Might Win a Macbook Pro

Ashley Chow and her marketing team at BCIT decided to enter the school’s 3blog Nights video competition. Students from all over the campus were invited to submit videos explaining/promoting why they think BCIT is the best school in BC. People can then vote for their favorite video and the one with the most votes will win a nice prize. In this case, the winner gets a new 13″ aluminum uni-body Macbook Pro.

Vote for Ashley’s Team and You Might Win a Mackbook Pro!

Here’s the deal. Ashley’s team is made up of six members. It’s pretty hard to divide one Macbook Pro among six students. If they win, they plan to sell the laptop and divide up the cash (staving students always need cash). I plan to buy the laptop off them and give it away to one of you. Before I can do that, Ashley and her team needs to win this competition. This is where you and your vote comes in. Watch their video and then go vote for it. It just might win you a brand new Macbook Pro!

*UPDATE – Ashley’s video is now in 1st place! That means a Macbook Pro will be given away to one lucky reader! However, let’s really pull ahead of the pack and win this by a huge margin. If you haven’t voted yet, please vote! It could win you a Macbook Pro!

Deadline for voting is Oct. 26 at 7:00 PM PDT – Go Vote Now!

  1. This video is actually really impressive. I think her team has a slightly unfair advantage πŸ˜‰

    I want a MacBook!

    1. Well this is not unfair he is her father. I am sure other contestant would capitalise this as well if they had, who knows few of them are doing as well … πŸ™‚

      1. For Blake

        I am sure you will also do same thing if your daughter was taking part in similar kind of contest.

        1. Benjamin Cip says:

          Well, I voted for the video before John promote it on his blog, coz ashley is a good friend of mine, and I wanted to help her to get a MacBook. As far as I know, she wanted to change her old pc computer with a macbook air.

  2. Carol says:

    I hope they win. I voted for them and left a comment too. πŸ™‚

    1. It is a big chance they win because john blog surely spread theirs world wide.

      1. But so far response was not so good may be because of weekends …

        I am sure this will gear up from Monday.

        1. Yeah, i bet it is because weekends.

      2. Lee Ka Hoong says:

        Totally agree with you, the word that spread by John is really powerful, it’s not a problem to bring them tons of vote. After they win, we will stand a chance to win the macbook pro as well. πŸ˜€

        1. Benjamin Cip says:

          Just help Ashley, you shouldn’t look after the benefit from helping her. Plus, there aren’t a lot of chance for you to win a mac book pro that easy. Just work on your blog, and you’ll earn enought money to get one by yourself πŸ™‚

          1. Earning prizes by beating others have own taste Benj. You can not compare such experience with earning money and buy MacBook Pro.

            Isn’t ?

          2. Lee Ka Hoong says:

            I’m not helping Ashley because of the benefit of the macbook, I don’t have much luck to win prize in contest, I’m just having fun and joining the contest.

            Same to ZK, it’s different to win a prize and buy it ourselves. πŸ˜€

    2. @ Carol

      Yes only vote is not at all good enough, add comments as well to show how much you care.

      1. I added a comment, as well as giving it a Stumble. Every bit helps at the end of the day!

        1. I know you are awesome Jacques … there is no doubt about this.

      2. Lee Ka Hoong says:

        I believe that it’s the best to write a blog post about it too, but I think the contest is ended. Awaiting for the result. πŸ™‚

  3. Well in this case Macbook Pro is not a big thing … we will vote for Ashley and she is going to win … πŸ™‚

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      that’s the right thing to do SW, well done.

      1. But I am crossing my finger to get MacBook … John are you reading this πŸ˜€

  4. Saw the video >>> liked it >>>> signed up >>>> voted and comments as well πŸ˜€

    1. And described your act in very systematic way as well. Lollzz πŸ˜‰

  5. Robb Sutton says:

    Voted. Hope it helps!

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      it sure will help. Remenber 1+1+1+ etc… can contribute to a big amount… If only I could gather more click for me on my blog, it would be wonderful lol

  6. Scot says:

    Your vote for Why BCIT? has been confirmed.

    1. And congratulation for that … you entered into MacBook Pro Contest. πŸ˜€

      1. Benjamin Cip says:

        … or contributed to make Ashley winning the mac book pro contest!

          1. beli hosting says:

            I will vote for ashley.

          2. WILL ….

            Go now and vote. What are you waiting for ??

  7. says:

    Hey John… I voted twice… πŸ˜‰

    I know how it feels like – would like to support as much as i can… will vote more… just give me the stats how much votes are falling short to win if you can…


    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      how did u vote twice?! did u change your IP or voted from different computers? that’s illegal! *just kidding*

  8. # Your vote for Why BCIT? has been confirmed.

    Okay, I voted. It would be nice to win that MacBook Pro, that would be sweet. I’m sure Ashley will win with all the votes she’ll get from your readers.

    1. She is also getting votes through her channels and her team member is also trying to grab votes.

      In fact every contestant is trying to get as many as vote they can.

    2. Lee Ka Hoong says:

      Absolutely, John has huge readership and I’m sure Ashley will win the contest.

      John don’t forget to post about the result of this contest too. πŸ™‚

      1. Benjamin Cip says:

        She didn’t ask for her father’s help first. She tried by herself before being assisted by her father, and I think it’s great because she doesn’t take advantage of being the daughter of John Chow.

        1. So when she changed her mind … after seeing her competitor getting ahead.

          There are few other cool videos as well …

  9. Karl Hadwen says:

    Voted, hope it helps.

  10. Vincent Woon says:

    Just Voted ! All the best Ashely πŸ™‚

  11. It is good to see this kind of post and be part of this, I voted, I hope they win

  12. Jacob Yap says:

    Voted and commented. All the best! πŸ™‚

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      Hey Jacob, you often change your gravatar lol, is that a photo of yourself? It’s neat to see who you really are. Anyway, I’m certain your vote was helpful, just like any other vote.

  13. Fahad says:

    I voted. The video looks pretty professional. I could never make something like that! lol

      Yes, the video really look professional with some amazing effects. Really liked it.

      1. Yes I like music very much.

        Should use John new camera for this.

  14. Adam says:

    She has stiff competition. Some of the videos have a lot of votes. I hope she wins so that I might win

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      Ulterior motive? Is that the fact you can win a mac book pro makes u want to help her?

      1. Update – Ashely is at top now.

        Just keep giving your valuable votes.

  15. Hahaha… really good strategy to use your blog for vote gaining john. And i voted!

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      it’s not for John but Ashley, his daughter…

      1. He must know that … thats why he voted for Ashley.

  16. John Grein says:

    I voted Hope she wins

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      no more hope, she’s going to win for sure, unless the familly member of another student is a well-known person that can gather a lot of online vote.

  17. Voted but they are not showing how many votes this one got.

    May be they want to avoid any unhealthy competition.

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      It would be great to see the numbers of vote.

      1. Its certainly showing and that’s why John came to know that Ashley is now leading.

  18. Tim says:

    Voted. Pls count me in the game! πŸ™‚

  19. videostar says:

    She will win for sure.Good luck and best wishes!

  20. ahbing says:

    Voted too! Ashley’s group definitely going to win this.. lol.

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      no doubts there…no doubts there Ahbing!

  21. Angad Sodhi says:

    I signed up and voted too.
    Good thing their signup is short n sweet.
    Hope she wins!

    1. Yeah … just one thing you have to approve through email

    Wow, we’re quite a ways behind some of those other videos.

    1. Lets beat them … yaaaaaaaaaa

      1. Benjamin Cip says:

        how to apply the competition? I want to be part of the winning team…

    2. Ed Lau says:

      LOL…their video is on top now.

      I voted too, BTW.

  24. Hey John,

    This really seems to bea wonderful opportunity for the students to win a MacBook.

    I wish I was at BCIT πŸ™‚

  25. WP Themes says:

    I think it’s kinda of unfair to other students if you voted just because of John Chow.

    If you watch some videos and think Ashley’s video is better than most, then the vote should count.

    Plus.. I think the students should compete among themselves without the help of others. Especially from a Dot Com Mogul.

    Anyways.. I just think the best video should win.

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      humm, some people won’t even look at the video and vote for someone they know. Imagine the familly and friends of other student will vote for the video of their familly member and you can’t do anything about that.
      It’s like getting a job in a compagny because a member of your familly is working there. Sometimes it pays off to know a lot of people.

    2. Ed Lau says:

      The world isn’t a fair place. Taking the inside track isn’t cheating.

  26. titan says:

    hoho. this is something weird. But i like this.

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      what do u mean by “weird”? I see nothing wrong in the video lol

  27. Lee Ka Hoong says:

    Voted, I hope my vote helps them to win the macbook pro. πŸ™‚

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      it sures will help her, Lee. I can’t wait to see the results and amount of vote, John generated just from his site. Before he was promoting it on his blog, ashley told me that the amount of vote was very low, so I just want to see the big changes.

  28. still watch the video before vote πŸ™‚

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      Still wondering whether or not you will vote for her video? lol

  29. fas says:

    I voted, where is my mac?

      1. Fas you are really demanding and sounding like a kid. I finish my homework now give me my lollipop.

  30. Soares says:

    Hi John,
    before voting I saw the video….and it is very good !!!
    my vote and signup is done, hope she wins.

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      I’m sure ashley will thank you for voting for her video.

  31. Jammy says:

    I voted too.
    Hope she wins..!!

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      you still doubts..?

      1. He do not know that Ashley and her team is now leading. πŸ˜€

  32. Benjamin Cip says:

    I already gave a vote for the video of Ashley and her classmate, before your promote it on your blog πŸ™‚

  33. mikel says:

    saw the video, liked it and voted. hope they win the competition and me the macbook

  34. Zac Johnson says:

    Voted and can’t wait to see the results!

    1. Nice to see that big players are also giving their time.

      Ashley now you are going to win and that’s for sure.

  35. ECS Dave says:

    I voted as well… Here’s hoping that your daughter and her teammates win the competition.

    BTW, what was the music used at the beginning, from what source?

    Be Well!
    ECS Dave

    1. Rob says:

      Hey Dave, the music is “Bitter Sweet Symphony” by The Verve. I’m glad you enjoyed the video guys!

      1. Wow in depth knowledge. Really appreciate this.

  36. Benjamin Hur says:

    Good job. Hope she wins.

    Just added my vote.

    We’ll be keeping an to see if it goes viral.


  37. OMGosh! People … you would do the same for your child! I KNOW I would for sure!!! I hope Ashley and her team win the contest. It was a great video too .. so they deserve it. *SmiLes* Suzanne

    1. Have you voted Suzanne.

      Just came to know about your burned house 5 years ago.

      Everything happened for good.

  38. Joshua says:

    Voted already! But just added a comment πŸ˜‰

  39. Gary says:

    Voted. Loved the transitions! MBP coming my way!

  40. Jasmin says:

    Just voted for you guys! Good Luck Ashley, and team!

    I particularly liked how you merged the squares together–from one outfit to another. Creatively done!



    1. Yeah … that one is quite amazing.

      I surprise to see how Ashley able to do this ?

  41. Mike says:

    Voted and hope they win

  42. Menard says:

    Voted and added some comments too. I liked the transition of the video as well as the stepping stone part that leads to knowledge, application, network and career.

  43. Tweetfind says:

    Just voted. and did a RT:

    RT Win a Mac Book Pro – Vote for @JohnChow daughter’s video! -> – Great video! Love the Music Pls RT
    Good Luck!

  44. Budiarno says:

    I voted that’s not for winning the chance to get the macbook, but because I knew John has inspired and help us alot with his blog.

    We support you and your daughter John..

  45. Hey John

    Here’s a thought. If you are going to buy a laptop off your daughter, just to give it away to someone else, why dont you write your daughter a cheque for $1500 and be done with it. Let the rest of us battle for the Macbook fairly? Thanks.

    1. John Chow says:

      Welcome to the real world David. If I were to just write her a cheque for $1,500, I wouldn’t have a laptop to give away, would I? πŸ™‚

    2. John Chow says:

      I see your video went from 303 down to 19 votes after the audit. Here’s another lesson for you David. If you’re going to cheat, at least learn how the system works so you don’t look so stupid when you get busted.

  46. Nauman says:

    Wicked video, awesome soundtrack,
    i need a mackbook

  47. draceena says:

    Great Job on the video! I voted as well. πŸ™‚

  48. Mike Young says:

  50. Danny says:

    Voted, Good luck!

  51. I’ve signed up and voted for Ashley’s team’s effort. It is very slick and I wish them well in the contest. I would like to see the traffic their offering got from this blog post. the analytics should make for some interesting reading.

  52. Wow, looks like Ashley is getting lots of votes. Hopefully she will win, John will get the Macbook and I will win it.

  53. MLDina says:

    Wow, I need to get in touch with you for all of our family fundraising efforts. Ashley should contact the people at Apple, though. One laptop for six students? How is THAT supposed to work?!

    1. John Chow says:

      How about Market Leverage sponsor her team with six Macbook Pros? πŸ˜›

      1. Hey … after reading this DINA evaporated …

        Dina … are you around dear ?

        1. She is Sharp ZK.

          If you will give her lead than definitely she will do that.

  54. AmΓ­lcar says:

    Just voted. Pretty good video indeed.

    Good luck for her, and many thanks to John Chow for sharing his knowledge.

  55. Voted! Good luck to her although it looks like she is well ahead.

  56. Voted it up! Good luck, Ashley!

  57. Paul says:

    Voted! Thanks for the chance at the macbook!

  58. Andrea says:

    I voted. Thought it was a great video. I surfed over from twitter. (angell_izz) I hope she wins!

  59. preston says:

    The vote has been placed and verified. Good luck to Ashley and her team.

    This daddy needs a new MacBook Pro! Let’s do this!


  60. Joe Tech says:

    Voted. I liked how the handshakes synced up at the end, btw.

  61. Throw in a vote aswell – even though I have a bit pity on her classmates, as its not really a fair competition for them… πŸ˜‰

  62. Jay Leishman says:

    Voted. Sweet video. Would’ve voted anyways.

  63. ohsoawesome says:

    Voted. Good work πŸ™‚

  64. Alan says:

    Just voted and I’m quite impressed with the video! Great work and all the best in the contest.

  65. vijay pandey says:

    Voted. I am sorry for Ashley. Her rivals are getting nastier. But that’s how life is. Hope she wins.

  66. Hey John,

    Why not just give them the cash and let someone else win the laptop that really needs it…. Not cool john, This is unfair to the students that put in the effort to make a video and are using their own contacts to win. Let someone have it that really needs it!!!

    1. Rob says:

      You do realize that this is a contest right? If John were to just give Ashley cash, he would have no MacBook to give away. How do you think the other contestants were going to split the computer? Slice it into 6th’s? They would sell it so everyone can get a piece of the pie. Just because your video isn’t going to win, and you don’t have the resources to pull your team ahead, their is no reason to be so bitter. You lost. Fair and square. Try opening up your Marketing book to Viral Marketing. Read it for a second. You might learn something.

  67. Adam Bshero says:

    Vote Submitted!

    Your daughter’s blog looks great too!

  68. Tom says:

  70. max says:

    Just voted! Good luck Ashley

  71. Earningstep says:

    you got my voted ashley .. hope you win and hope i win…lol

  72. Grace Lau says:

    I voted! Hope you win Ashley!!

  73. Magoo says:

    I think that there is no doubt that these guys have the best video by far. It’s explains why they chose BCIT, and doesn’t just show a random animal walking around campus. Clear winner, regardless of how many votes they get. They deserve it.

  74. Excellent video, voted as “hospitalera”, good luck, Ashley and team, SY

  75. Tunesha says:

    Voted! I love that you’re doing this for her! I wish someone would do this for me πŸ™‚ It would be really nice if I could win a macbook as well. Unfortunately I can’t afford school right now, but I’m learning video editing from a friend of mine who’s a videographer. It would be so amazing to have a Mac so that I can take my learning further.

  76. shawna says:

    Just did a last minute vote for the macbook pro!

    1. Dear Shawna
