April Spoke-A-Thon in Full Swing!

The 3rd ever SPOKE-A-THON is Officially Live:  another round of our users' favorite contest to build great pages on for chances to win Apple products and personal exposure across our site!

To Enter:
Sign up on (or Login), and create a new page on a topic / company / person of your chosing (hint, we really like topics).

Judging Criteria:
(1)  Completeness: Use the flexibility of the page. Fill as many fields as you can to improve your chances -- this means adding videos, links, detailed descriptions, etc.
(2)  Usefulness: Does your page contain boring everyday information; or is there unique and actionable insight that isn't common to most of the Spoke audience?
(3)  Creativity: A contest wouldn't be complete without a little flair, so feel free to post the unexpected -- links that give unique context, videos that tell a story -- it can only help!
(4)  Social Sharing: vote for your page using the Facebook 'Like', Google +1, and Tweet buttons, and encourage others to do so. The more your entry is shared, the more likely you are to win.

The previous contests have been intense to watch, check out some of the winning submissions and their authors:

You Can't Lose!

In both prior Spoke-a-thon's, users emailed us after to tell us what a huge traffic boost their personal and company brands received because they participated--even those who didn't win!  This is because while winning pages may get homepage exposure AND a custom-engraved iPod (and if you submit 3 winning entries, an iPad 3), we also promote other pages all over our site, and on facebook & twitter.  And finally, our entire community will gain access to the page(s) you build.

We've seen over 64,000 edits since we launched in January and wanted to use this contest as a way to give our users even more benefit for their efforts.  There are multiple ways to win an iPod shuffle or an iPad 3 -- including periodic drawings !!

Best of luck, Click here to get started!
