San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2006 –-
The Blog Squad team of marketing experts is celebrating the first anniversary of their popular ebook Build a Better Blog: The Ultimate Guide to Boosting Your Business with a Professional Blog, by running a contest giving away 2 iPod nanos and a Razer Copperhead mouse for prizes during the month of April.
“There are three ways to win a prize,” announced Patsi Krakoff, Psy. D., “Sign up for our weekly newsletter Savvy eBiz Tips, answer a marketing question, or refer the most number of new subscribers to the newsletter.” Enter the contest at: http://www.SavvyeBizTips.com
Patsi Krakoff is part of The Blog Squad, along with partner Denise Wakeman. The Blog Squad specializes in showing professionals how to set up and use a business blog for maximum results. (Blogs are online web logs, special software that allows users to post articles directly onto the Web, and for readers to comment and participate in a conversation.)
A year ago they published Build a Better Blog. At the same time they launched what has become a popular weekly TeleSeries, Conversations with Experts. They interviewed blogging experts for the ebook and featured them on the TeleSeries. Since then they have interviewed 44 experts in other fields such as book publishing, website design and marketing, newsletters, publicity, public relations, and Internet marketing.
These audio files are available as podcasts through a monthly subscription fee. But they are free if you win one of the two iPods which come preloaded with 44 hours of expert advice. These experts would charge you over $8,000 if you were to pay their individual consulting fees.
The Blog Squad’s free weekly electronic newsletter, Savvy eBiz Tips, gives action-oriented steps for streamlining online marketing tasks, including those for blogs, newsletters, websites, and e-commerce systems.
As part of the Blog Squad’s subscription drive for Savvy eBiz Tips, each new subscriber will get three chances to win one of 2 iPod nanos, or a Razer Copperhead mouse.
1. Sign up for the newsletter and a name will be drawn randomly.
2. Sign up and answer this question: “In your experience, what is the most important marketing skill a professional will need to master to be effective in the next few years?” Answers will be judged on relevance, creativity and utility.
3. Refer the most number of friends and colleagues as new subscribers. This third option will be awarded a Razer Copperhead mouse from http://www.razerzone.com, considered to be the Ferrari of mice.
The Blog Squad says they are celebrating a year of success by giving away these 3 prizes, but they are also marketing themselves along the way.
“We have built up a ton of information on how to grow a business online, and we want to share these tips with people who want to take their business to the next level,” says Denise. “We’ve been doing business on the Internet for nearly 10 years. We know what works and what doesn’t. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you can waste a lot of time and money. We can help you be smart and savvy, by reading Savvy eBiz Tips.”
They hope to build up a larger subscription base for Savvy eBiz Tips with this 3-way contest during the month of April. Prizes will be announced the first week of May. For more information, visit http://www.SavvyeBizTips.com.
