Disappointing failure in the first contest

4 comments - Post a comment

The first weekly contest ended yesterday with only 1 participant. I declare it a ultimate failure due to the poor response. However, what's important is to think through how it happened.

Before that, i want to give credit to Erz for being the only participant of the contest. His blog is pretty interesting and from the large number of contest related post, i guess the purpose of the blog is to take part in many contest in order to generate extra bucks. However, there's also other stuff such as fashion tips and financial tips.

What went wrong was the question that keeps popping up in my mind. After much thought i came to this conclusion:

1. The contest was too difficult to worth the prize of $20 bucks.
2. Having to subscribe + fav in technorati + review is too much to ask for $20

Thus, after discussion with jaesten, we decided to make the entry requirement easier and include an exemption clause to ensure our purpose is meet before any prize is given away.
