Page One Power’s Win $100 Contest

Contest Update

Congratulations to Sarah Hurd-Sullivan, our lucky winner!

Want To Win $100?

Show Us Some Page One Power Love,

We’ll Show You The Money!

We don’t know anyone who doesn’t like a little extra cash in the old pocketbook, and we also haven’t met a person who doesn’t like to win money, either. If that sounds like you, too, then you’re in luck.

We’re hosting an online Facebook contest for a $100 cash credit card. It’s so easy to enter and win, that you could probably do it in your sleep. The idea is to get a lovefest going… a Page One Power lovefest. 

Three Ways to Enter:

ONE: LIKE our Facebook page.

If you already like us, (Hey, thanks! We like you, too!) get a friend to like our Facebook page. Just make sure you let us know who sent them.

***Note: You can’t just like a post, you have to like the whole Page One Power Facebook Page. ***

TWO: Post A Photo To Our Facebook Page

Post a photo on our wall of yourself, your friends, your colleagues, your kids, or your pets holding up a sign that says, “I Love Page One Power” or wearing a t-shirt, or basically something in the photo that indicates how much you love Page One Power.


THREE: Post A Video to the Page One Power Facebook Page

Post a video of you singing a love song, a testimonial to the virtues of Page One Power or of you eating cereal with your friends, as long as you say something awesome about us, it gets you entered.

Come on all of you lovers of Page One Power  and Facebook Likers! What have you got to lose? Show the world  that…you’ll do just about anything for a little money. Just kidding! Show the world a little love for Page One Power, and We’ll Show You The Money!


Head to the Page One Power website for great articles on link building, business, search engine news and other online marketing topics.

A few lucky runners-up will be awarded Page One Power swag… t-shirts, pens, etc., and/or a discount code to use on our custom link building services.

RECAP: Liking us on Facebook, getting a friend to Like us, or posting an original photo or video showing the world your love for Page One Power gets you entered into the contest for $100.

TIPS: Selection of best photo or video is up to the powers that be over at Page One Power, but we’re leaning towards awarding the $100 to the most creative, funny, intelligent, well-thought-out entrant… you know, you’ll want to really make us feel loved.

(*Our lawyers said we have to mention that Facebook is not responsible for contest. Don’t forget that we’re all still friends even if we don’t win, etc.)
