Free meal contest update

Mark Kawabe - Monday, November 11, 2013

Cereal bowl smiley faceThere is a slight update to our weekly draw for a free breakfast or lunch with me : )

  • If you like my blog post on Facebook, you will receive one ballot.
  • If you share my blog post, you will receive three ballots.
  • If you comment on my blog post, directly or on Facebook, you will receive ten ballots. Only the first comment you make on each post will be counted.

Yes, that's 10 ballots if you comment. So, if you like, share and comment, you could get 14 ballots per blog post : )

 

We have another winner!

What could you gain from a one-on-one with a web specialist?

Mark Kawabe - Friday, November 01, 2013

If you had an hour (or perhaps two) to ask someone with a heap of experience building websites and marketing online, would you have any questions for them?

What would you ask? Any ideas?

If you have questions, here's your chance. Just share, like or comment on any of my recent blog posts to enter a draw for breakfast or lunch with me :)

You can ask whatever you like - and even better, breakfast or lunch is my treat!

I hope to be answering your questions in person soon!

Who likes to eat?

Mark Kawabe - Thursday, October 31, 2013

In theory, everyone likes food. I know it's a necessity, but some people seem to enjoy eating more than others. I am starting a month-long experiment that if it goes well, will mean more people read my blog and engage with the content (and hopefully each other). It will also mean I'm going to meet some people and some local restaurants are going to get some business

My experiment is as follows:

I am going to run a weekly draw for a free breakfast or lunch - with me : )

To enter, all you have to do is interact with recent posts on my blog in some way. When you do, you'll receive a ballot in the draw. Different interactions will receive different numbers of ballots, as below.

  • If you like my blog post on Facebook, you will receive one ballot.
  • If you share my blog post, you will receive three ballots.
  • If you comment on my blog post, directly or on Facebook, you will receive five ballots. Only the first comment you make on each post will be counted.

At the end of each week, I will look back at the interactions with the week's blog posts and tally up how many ballots each person gets. Then I'll do a random draw and announce the winner on Monday. It will be announced on the blog and elsewhere, of course : )

This experiment starts today, so any engagements made on blog entries posted during the week of October 28~November 1 will count towards your ballots. Good luck!

P.S. If you're not local to Niagara, my apologies, but unless I happen to be headed to where you are, if you win, you'll have to come to Niagara to collect. While the internet is worldwide, my ability to travel the length and breadth of the globe to have breakfast or lunch is limited. Then again, it would make for an awesome reason to visit other parts of the world!
