The Net Fools Build A Blog Workshop

HostGator Sponsors Five AWESOME Contest Prizes

As many of you know, The Net Fool is proudly hosted on HostGator servers. Jim, as well as myself, have really never regretted this decision, as you pay few little for high-performance, great customer support and an awesome deal that keep your wallet full! HostGator is one of the world’s top 10 largest web hosting companies with more than 1,300,000 hosted domains. They have over 200 employees to provide around-the-clock superior support, and are “the perfect choice whether you are looking for business, personal, or even Fortune 500 hosting.”

How good is HostGator? They’ve agreed to sponsor 5 HUGE Business Plans (worth $180 each) to 5 participants in The Net Fool’s Build-A-Blog Workshop!!! :D

Option One: Take The Course!

The first way to win the Net Fool’s Build-A-Blog Workshop contest is to take the workshop along with us! This is a very good idea for any aspiring entrepreneur, and it will give you awesome exposure right off the bat. If you decide to follow along with the course, not only will you be entered to win a great free hosting plan from HostGatorbut you will get free mentions on The Net Fool on a daily basis.

  • If 1-6 people enter the workshop: We’ll give away 2 Business Hosting Plans!
  • If 7+ people enter the workshop: We’ll give away 3 Business Hosting Plans!

This is a fantastic opportunity for an instantly successful blog from a professional. Better yet, if you purchase your first hosting plan through Jim’s referral link (you can simply tack on a year of hosting later), he will buy you your own domain name and install everything you need to get started! I challenge you to find a better deal. :razz:

Option Two: Promote Our Contest

Do you already know the ropes or aren’t interested in starting a fresh new venture? No Problem! We have another opportunity to those of you that this applies to, and will give away from 2-3 FREE HostGator business hosting plans to two random entries (depending on above participation) to people that help out.

Prizes will be donated through racking up entries; entries can be gained in a few ways:

The Net Fool’s Christmas Giveaway

The Net Fool in conjunction with Market Leverage is giving away your choice of a brand new iPod Nano or a sleek Flip Mino High Definition! This contest consists of two rounds. In round one, Jim will be the judge…and the best entry (in his opinion) will win themselves their choice of a Flip Mino HD or an Apple iPod Nano. If you are the winner from, you will get to compete with the winners from other blogs. The top three winners (as selected by the Market Leverage team of hosts/judges) will also get a Kindle, a $100 ML Rewards card and a $50 iTunes card. 

Round One: Share Your Secret!

As a play off of Market Leverage’s new “The Secret Is Out” theme, ML and Jim would like to know what YOUR secret is to making money online! Essentially, you should give some affiliate marketing advice that you have picked up on your own. They want to get some affiliate advice from the affiliates!

The advice that you give can be in pretty much any form you want as long as it is posted in the comment area below and is relevant to making money with Market Leverage. Your entries should use Market Leverage as the example affiliate network (if applicable), and should be clear and concise. I’m not going to choose an answer that rambles on about every little thing…so keep your money-generating ideas limited to one idea or technique that you use especially well to drive big cash on the internet. You don’t have to be a professional, you just need to voice your opinion.

How Do I Win?

The winner will be announced on December 31st, and Market Leverage will get their official winner list out on January 5th to ring in the New Year! That’s a potential prize pack worth $750 for our grand prize winners.
