If you’ve visited my blog any time since February 16th you’ll know that I’ve been holding a Video Blog Challenge since February 29th until March 29th and that I’ve been holding a traffic competition for the same period.

Today’s the day that I announce the winner of the competition and send the prizes to that lucky person…… but before I do that, here’s a little summary.

We had 29 participants and created over 90 videos between us, giving us all free tutorials on a number of subjects:

List Building

WordPress

PhotoShop

YouTube

Amazon Selling

Amazon S3 Storage

Pinterest

Twitter

Google Plus

Facebook Fan Pages

Affiliate Marketing

PowerPoint Presentations

Aweber

Memberships Sites

Give Away Events

Keyword Research

The list goes on and on….

There really are some fantastic videos with everyone sharing their knowledge and helping us all progress online.

As it is a leap year my aim was to encourage people that had never created videos before to start doing so and make this leap year somewhat special. Kind of like a leap of faith or to leap on the fear of creating videos and kick it into touch (if that was the case).

Well I’m extremely pleased to announce that we were able to encourage 7 people to start making videos for the first time and I hope that they continue to do so.

In the video below I name those 7 people as well as The Top Ten Traffic Sources for the period of the challenge and the Winner of the Camtasia and Snagit Licences.

Please watch the video below and all will be revealed :cool:

Note: All of my videos are shot in wide-screen HD so just hit the button at the bottom right corner ;)

The Top Ten Traffic Sources For The Video Blog Challenge

To qualify for the Traffic Competition the participants had to submit at least 4 videos during the challenge period, however some couldn’t do so due to off line commitments and poor health. I know as well as anyone that life gets in the way sometimes and as hard as we try it’s just impossible to get things done online during those times.

Therefore if any of the participants that couldn’t complete the 4 videos during the challenge period would like to add to them at a later date please feel free to do so. Simply let me have the URL to your posts and I will add it to The Video Blog Challenge page.

If you didn’t enter the challenge but would like to tell us about your videos visit the Facebook Fan Page and leave the details of your video there.

I’m Here To Help

If you would like to start creating videos but didn’t want the pressure of the challenge then please feel free to visit the Facebook Fan Page for tips, tricks, advice or any form of help you need.

I’m not going to tell you who won the Traffic Competition here, you’ll have to watch the video for that ;) but I will list those mentioned in the video for ease of getting to their blogs. To view the full list of participants please visit the Video Blog Challenge Page.
