Sharing the Love: Free John Chow Banner Ad Contest

Posted on August 24, 2007 by Tim Schroeder

(Update. This contest has now ENDED. See below for more info.).

As mentioned in a previous, I’ve been thinking about some ideas for a new John Chow Banner Ad contest.

John Chow will be selling these currently sold-out 125 x 125 banner spots for whopping $500 a month. Now $500 is not chump change for most people and it’s not for me either. However, if you think smart, your return on investment can easily exceed your costs. That is a fact based on the success some advertisers have had with the 300 x 250 banner spot and some review me orders. Luckily I’m one of the few to secure a new banner spot and my luck is now your reward.

With this first contest, I’m going to give FOUR of you the opportunity to get your banner on John Chow for FREE.

I’m going to keep this fairly simple.

1. A reply to this post counts as ONE entry.

2. A link back from your blog to this thread (trackback) and the eMonetized.com homepage counts as FIVE entries.

Your anchor text and text copy may vary. All that is required is the two links. For example:

Tim Schroeder of eMonetized.com is giving four people the chance to have their own 125 x 125 banner ad shown on John Chow for free. Your can read more about his John Chow Banner Ad Contest Here.

Now this is the easiest contest ever because a simple reply to this post gets you one entry. However, if you take the time to mention this contest on your blog it will significantly increase your chances of winning. I’ll also really appreciate it. You never know, you might find yourself in one of my “In-the-Spotlight” posts. 😉

As an added BONUS for the first 10 linkbacks to this contest from your blog you will get your own 468 x 80 banner rotated on the top page of eMonetized.com for a full month. Just contact me with the link to your banner and url. Remember, I’m getting lots of extra traffic from John Chow so your banner will be seen. Even if you are not one of the first 10 to linkback, you will still get the five extra contest entries for doing so.

This contest will end Wednesday August 29 (specific time to be announced). At the end of this contest I’ll randomly select FOUR winners and announce them on eMonetized. Each of these four winners will get your own 125 x 125 banner shown on John Chow for one day.

How much traffic and how much money will your banner send you? That really depends on how creative you can be with your banner! You can probably expect anywhere from 100 to 300+ clicks on your banner for this free one day ad.

Good Luck and thanks for reading eMonetized.com!


UPDATE: This contest is now OVER and winners will be announced shortly. Thanks to everyone who participated!

    This is a great opportunity, tho i am late on it and today is 27th August already, it would be worthless to give it a try. Anyway good luck to the “winner” 😉

    I’m all over it. I’d love to get another taste of the John Chow effect.

    Not sure if my trackback will show up or not, but it’s done.

    If I managed to win this, I’d be interested to see how John Chow’s readers would respond to a niche scuba diving site like mine. I’m guessing it would have pretty poor clickthroughs but maybe good conversion…

    I’m in for this contest… great idea!
