Website Traffic & Beer Money For YOU!

20110716-011244.jpgThis post is part 1 of a tutorial on how to create quick and easy giveaways to drive traffic to your website/blog and facebook page…and it also happens to be about beer…..REALLY GOOD beer (and I’m not saying this because PALM is a client…fact is, PALM IS a client AND they brew a kickass ale).

Anyway, three things are going on here:

  1. I’m running a cash giveaway (see below) to promote PALM (3 winners will be picked next Friday 7/22 based on total points earned)
  2. I’m using a neat plugin to run this giveaway called Punchtab
  3. If all goes well (meaning lots of you follow the simple steps from the ‘Join giveaway now’ button below), I’m going to record a short video explaining how the entire process works so YOU can run quick and easy giveaways like this one on YOUR website.

    PunchTab is requesting permission to do the following: = uh…NO

    • Mike Corso Jul 16, 2011, 12:43 pm

      Yeah that whole ‘this app wants to do everything’ language is so off putting but it’s really innocuous . I wish all apps and Facebook would come up with something less pushy sounding. Anyway, it’s a transparent world–embrace it, it wont hurt.

  • Fred Jul 15, 2011, 11:29 pm

        Yes! In fact, I’m a Certified Professional Coach as of May 13! 🙂 This is a great idea! I’m thinking about how I might be able to use it to build up the fan base on my Facebook coaching page. Hope all is well with you too, and it appears that it is! 🙂
