MarketLeverage Blog Contest

Now, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. Here’s how you can win these fantastic prizes. Below are a list of different ways you can earn “tickets”; each ticket is essentially one entry into the contest. Having more tickets won’t ensure you’re a winner (maybe someone with one ticket gets reallllllly lucky) but of course, the more times you enter – the better your chances of winning. On Thursday September 11th, at 10:00pm (EST) I will put all of the tickets into an online randomizer and choose a winner of each of the 5 prizes at random. I will then email all of the winners and each company sponsoring the contest will send you your prizes; it’s that simple.

Why September 11th? Well, this contest is to commemorate the birthday of so I figured why not end the contest on my own birthday (the 11th)…

  1. Hey Luke, just saw your post on facebook. I have been meaning to subscribe to your blog since you told me about it this summer but I now have an excuse to do that.
