Recently I came across Earners Forum
, a relatively new forum started by Lee Dodd. The thing that amazed me about this forum is its surprisingly fast growth. The credits for this goes to the great marketing strategy of EarnersForum team. Apart from usual SEO and off-line marketing they are also having one really big contest which ends on July 31th(sorry for the late announcement) Having a contest to promote a site or forum is not a new one but this contest have lot of flexibility and really exciting prizes. You can checkout the contest page
for full details. Here are some important things to know about the contest:
There will be a total of 5 winners, each winning: $1,000, a content site with 500 pages, 1 hours consultation with Lee, and more. Total value of all prizes, as given on the site, is over $20,000. You can see the full list along with forum rules at their contest page.
These contests play a very important part in launching any site but for the contests to really get the attention of the crowd it has to be interesting and innovative.
