Announcing the first-ever SPOKE-A-THON: a challenge to our already-stellar users to push the limits of creativity (oh, and the winners get Apple products!) by creating the best new pages on Spoke.com and submitting them for entry. We select the 5 best pages, whose authors will win an iPod Shuffle! And if you submit 3 winning entries …. you'll get an iPad 2! That's right, an I-P-A-D 2!! Even more important, we will promote the winners (and any winning topics pages) on our homepage, where we get 100,000+ views per month -- that's some serious exposure!
The Rules are simple: Create a new person, company, or topic page on Spoke.com (hint to those of you reading closely -- we really like topics, though any well-done page stands a good chance). Start by going to Spoke.com and clicking "Add a New ____". Create a page on anything you like, and submit it using our online form here.
Entries will be judged on 3 criteria:
Completeness: Use the flexibility of the page. Fill as many fields as you can to build a better page and improve your chances -- this means adding videos, links, great descriptions, and more (depending on page type).
Usefulness: Will your page be informative to the rest of the Spoke audience? Does it contain boring everyday information; or is there unique and actionable insight that isn't common to most people.
Creativity: Of course, a contest like this wouldn't be complete without a little flair -- so feel free to post the unexpected -- links that give unique context, videos that tell a cool story -- it can only help your entry!
The contest window is only 1 week long so don't wait to get going. You may submit multiple entries. And I know what you're thinking -- "didn't Spoke just launch last month, and so wouldn't the competitive pool be pretty small?"
Yep. Probably. Maybe you can run the numbers on your iPad.
Again, there are a few requirements, so read the Official Entry form here. Some examples to get your wheels turning (don't worry, these aren't eligible):
1) Utility Grade Solar
2) Steve Jobs
4) Job Search Over 40
