TylerCruz.com’s “Banners Galore!” RSS Contest

February 16, 2008 Posted by Tyler Cruz

Due to the success from the RSS contest I held back in December, I decided that it was time to hold another one. In the $300 RSS Contest, I gave away $300, and all people had to do to enter was subscribe to my RSS feed by e-mail. The contest was a great success, and I ended up increasing my RSS feed by 168.

Therefore, I teamed up with my friends at BannersMall.com to launch an even bigger contest! I hereby announce to you the TylerCruz.com “Banners Galore!” RSS Contest! There are a total of three prize packages up for grabs, worth over $400, so be sure to enter:

The great thing about this contest is that everybody can use banners. Giving out pure cash is hard to beat, but I believe that custom-made, professional banners are the next best thing. Winning an iPod or XBox is great, but what if you already own one of these? This is why I’m very excited to be able to team up with BannersMall to run this giveaway.

The Prizes

Three lucky winners will each receive one of the three following prizes (one prize each):

Digi Combo ($139 value; $164 with PSD’s)

  • 468×60 Banner
  • 234×60 Banner 
  • 125×125 Banner
  • 120×60 Banner
  • One ANY SIZE Banner of your choice
  • In addition, BannersMall is throwing in the source PSD for each of the banners which normally costs $5 per banner – a $25 value!

  • One Peel Away Ad, such as the one in the top right corner of my blog.
  • Includes the source PSD – a $5 value

 

How to Enter

Entering the contest is extremely simple and only takes a few seconds.

To participate, simply subscribe to my RSS feed by e-mail subscription and you’re set! I’ll be randomly selecting 3 winners a week from now and will declare the winners in an upcoming post.

To subscribe to my RSS feed by e-mail, simply type your e-mail address into the textbox at the top right of my blog and then confirm your e-mail. You’ll then receive any future posts from my blog directly to your e-mail!

Please note that if you’re already an RSS e-mail subscriber, you’re already eligible to win and don’t have to do anything! It’s yet another reason why you should subscribe to my RSS by e-mail :)

To determine the winners through randomization I’ll be exporting my Feedburner E-mail List to Random.org and taking the first 3 entries which will be randomly selected. The 3rd in the list will receive the Peel Away Ad.

Deadline

The contest runs for 1 week, and I’ll be drawing the three winners on February 23rd, so be sure to sign up to my RSS by e-mail before then if you want a shot of winning a prize.

About BannersMall

Although BannersMall is only run mainly by two people (four in total), they’ve already done work for over 4,000 clients, having created over 30,000 banners. Some of their clients include HostGator, E-lance, 1&1 Hosting, and the American Red Cross. In fact, looking through their portfolio, it almost seems as though they’ve created half of the banners that you see online – seriously.

But don’t take my word for it – look through their 129 jam-packed pages of their portfolio for yourself to see the quality of their work.

They have a turnaround time of around 3 days, offer 24-hour rush orders, and provide free revisions until you are happy with your banners.

Perhaps the best endorsement I could make, however, would be to say that I’m a longtime and repeat client. I’ve purchased dozens of banners from BannersMall over the past few years, and have always been very satisfied. Here are a few 120×600 skyscrapers they’ve made for me in the past:

They also create Peel Away Ads, as seen in the top right corner of this blog, which have just recently started to gain great interest.

BannersMall Affiliate Program

Recently, BannersMall added a referral program to their site due to popular demand. I know that I’ve been waiting a very long time for them to do this. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I was the 6th person to sign up for it :-)

They pay out 10% per sale, and give you $10 just for signing up (there is a $100 minimum payout to prevent people from abusing this). I only signed up about 6 weeks ago and have already made 8 transactions totalling $51.76. To sign up, click on the “BannersMall Affiliate Program button located at the top center of their site (it can be easy to miss).

I would highly recommend BannersMall the next time you need some banners done for your websites.
