Commentating Contest

Starting on October 1st 2008, to celebrate my new blog launching I will be running a monthly contest for Top commentators! The idea here is to build up a nice community of people that want to interact with me and each other, whilst learning about good business and how to succeed with your own online business!

The Idea is very simple, post good comments that are actually relevent and no comment spam and not only can you get a link on my sidebar for being in the top 10 commentators and free exposure, not only can you build up a good reputation with me and amongst everyone else in the community, but you also have a shot at winning some cold, hard, cash!

I will be paying $100 to the person who finishs with the most comments each month! Remember, if your post sucks, it will get deleted, not to mention it will make you look like a fool. So make each post worth reading, enhance your reputation and most of all, get posting! πŸ™‚

    That’s a good amount you are giving away as a prize to the top commentators πŸ™‚
    And yep agree that spammy comments are not just moderated by the bloggers but the commentators look foolish for just wasting their time and spamming..

  2. Yep, Quality posts win the day. Welcome to my new blog Chetan

    Good to see your new blog my friend!
    But why did you stop blogging on Viral King?

  8. Well, I might start blogging on it again in future. I feel I have more freedom on my own name though, plus the viralking design needs more work, i stuffed it up some how, hahaha

    Hi Colin,
    Great videos for training there should be more of them.I enjoyed your Blogg and the incentives .I agree with you on spam ,I reckon half the emails we get could be classified as spam especially those that advertise programs that just dont work.

    Hi Colin

    Lovely blog !! And a lovely prize for comments !!

    I do not have a blog – many say it is easy but somehow I get too scared to start one – I am not computor technical :o(

    Wish you all the best dear friend and looking forward to your launch of Viral Networks – I do not know why but I have a feeling it will be a huge hit !!

    Good luck to all in the contest and may the best person win !!

    Hello Colin, I just bought some impressions on the new site for viral networkers. Since it is still in prelauch I thought there should be a lot of people checking it out. I would recommend other members to think about buying impressions too. Now is a good time to get started on our new community and help build our site into a great place to call home. I am really excited about this community. I wish you luck and everyone else who have joined. Thanks for creating a great site to be! Cheryl

  17. Hi Retro, thanks and welcome to the new community πŸ™‚ – No I don’t count in the contest, youre right i should probably have said that, haha.

  18. Cheryl, Thanks so much for the kind words and the support! It’s members like you buying ads that ensure we have a smooth transition to launch with the massive servers we need to buy!

  19. inder says:

    thats really a very good deal collins…
    well i am here to get some knowledge from you and hopefully will be able to..
    good going collins…

  20. Hi Inder,

    nice to have you with us. My name is Colin though πŸ™‚

  21. Karen Giardunio says:

    Wow Colin! I am a recognized Internet Expert Author in the fields of Internet/Network Marketing and Personal Development as well… I subscribe to your “Keep it Positive” mindset! I think that we have a duty and an obligation to accept each and every individual who comes Online and do all we can to help them shine and grow. There are soooo many ways to make money Online and Multiple Steams of Income make the most sense to me. I navigated my way to you via Viral Networks and I tried to add you on my Twitter page by hitting the follow bar… but I don’t see it so when you respond let me know what’s up as I would enjoy learning from you! My Twitter ID is available to you… if you would like to have it… just let me know! Anyway -if you get a chance to Google me -look for the two articles about Denis Waitly and John Gray and you will see for yourself how I feel about looking at the best of peoples attributes and focusing on them instead of slamming people. So good luck and thanks for the contest -most importantly -good luck to everyone!!

  23. Andika Kusuma says:

    Wow thats really good prize for your commentator

    Thanks for visiting my blog Colin, I’ve bookmark ur blog and will come regularly for sure πŸ˜€

    I think this blog is a great idea for the exchange of information among those working on the internet. Absolutely no spam is the best policy. I have spent a lot of time filtering and blocking spam emails. You change your address and bang immediately they find you again. I appreciate the quality site you set up on viral networks—
    Ted C Marchion

  25. Thanks very much Ted and welcome to my blog, great to have you here

  26. vonmer says:

    Hi there!

    Great contest youΒ΄re having here. Colin, is this your $2500 dollar design you bought? It was well worth it. The design feels and looks “light” and I personally love the camouflaged $ signs at the bottom of your blog left from “Copyright”.

    Keep up the good work. Cheers!

  27. Thanks Vonmer and welcome πŸ™‚ good to have you here

  28. MLMNoob says:

    I haven’t read many of your posts, but I love the concept of this contest. I’m already way behind, but it doesn’t matter because the information I have read so far is great!

  29. Ed says:

    Good idea about setting up your own blog on Viralurl. Like the cash comment contest, pity it’s a little late for the oct contest, hopefully you’ll have another in November…?

    Ed πŸ™‚

  30. Hi Ed,

    welcome – its never too late πŸ™‚ plus just posting here and reading will hopefully help you online. Also, yes there will be one next month πŸ™‚

  31. Ed says:

    Good job on replying, Now I know your human, hehehehe…:)


  32. Ed says:

    Hi Chetan,

    I would like to start a blog, So what do ya think would be a good idea to blog.

    How about, the end of the Bush Regime…? and pease, prosperity to the World


  33. Ed says:

    Typo, Peace…!

  34. Sophia says:

    Brilliant and ingenious. Tell me, where did you find this business model? I’d love to learn more about this technique for myself. Job well done…

  35. Sophia says:

    Regarding your comment “I am not computer technical”, is that a joke?
    Because you can obviously read, you can also type..hmm.
    Don’t you know that with just a little bit more content and interesting information- you’d have a blog? Then you could promote it by making comments to other people’s blogs like you did here..
    Naa, you must be jiving us!! hehe good luck though!

  36. Hi Colin, I just joined Twitter and checked out your Twitter page. My gosh, you have posted so many good blogs about network marketing I can’t wait to dive in and start reading! Just a fountain of knowledge to be soaked up! When you have the time, please check out my Twitter page and “Follow” me if you like. My URL is
    UPDATE! LOL! Looks like you already joined my page!! Ok, how did you do that so fast?? Anyway, looking forward to being friends and learning network marketing from you and all the folks at Viral. Richard

  40. wiehanne says:

    I was a bit skeptical when it comes to comment contest. But I’m glad that you made out the point “comments that are actually relevent and no comment spam”. πŸ˜€

  41. nmnoob says:

    Hi Colin,

    It’s Peter aka MLMNoob. I changed my name to match my site.

    I decided to copy your contest for the month of November on my site. I was just curious to see for myself firsthand if the contest idea really works to generate traffic.

    Are you continuing the contest for November?


  42. Hi Peter,

    Yes I am and in 2-3 days ill show the commentators for this month on the sidebar. Only showing all time for now or it looks a bit bare πŸ™‚ anyone’s game this month πŸ™‚

    It will work if you get the word out. I haven’t really as Ive been too busy on my other sites and the blog is neglected. Soon ill get to spending more time on the blog and spreading the word.

  43. Ed Forshaw says:

    Hello Colin,

    I have seen this contest idea work in various forums in terms of increasing quality posts and also memberships, No reason why it won’t do the same here.
    I have been seeing Your name for years online and it is good to be able to connect the name with a real person.
    I am quite sure that I will not have the time to be in the running for this contest but I do want to say that The Viral-network concept is an excellent idea and I am looking forward to building many long-lasting relationships here and also learning as much as I can along the way.
    I am very glad to have been shown this site and wish I had joined earlier.
    All the best to everyone,

    Hey Karen! I like the way you think and what you do. Sounds like we are on the same mission, to help people. I find that the best way to learn is to teach, so as fast as I learn something I teach it to othersf. It looks like I could learn a lot from you. Lets get in touch.

    Ken Wolff

  45. Ken Wolff says:

    Thanks Colin!

    I had a friend ask me why she should join Viral Networks. Maybe she did not watch the introductory video about VN. Here is another great reason to Join. Another great contest and opportunity to win a prize while having fun. It does not get much better than that. Well, I don’t know. It does keep getting better.

    Keep on keeping on,

    Ken Wolff

  46. Ed says:
