Post A Comment To Win Free WordPress Stuff!

I’ve learned that just randomly giving away prizes to members of this site isn’t the best way to go for a few reasons. The biggest being the fact that more people have NOT responded to claim their winnings than those that have thus far. Also, and this may influence why, not everyone will necessarily care or be interested in winning some or even any of the prizes and free stuff we have to giveaway from all our sponsors. So choosing people at random who are just a member of the site is just not working, probably due to this and maybe other things I don’t know of.

You Have To Want It

People need to want to win a prize, and for that reason, I am going to change things up a bit, and give those that really want to win something a better chance at it. It’s just smarter and better for everyone all around.

Post A Comment Below If You Want to Win…. This Stuff

Jump Box

Free JumpBox Pro Account

A JumpBox is a “ready-to-use” virtual machine that will run in minutes on any computing environment that supports virtualization. A single download is compatible with all major forms of virtualization.

Once deployed a JumpBox delivers a fully-functional instance of an application that you can start using right away. You can think of it like a “frozen TV dinner” that just needs to be “cooked” with virtualization. We take care of all the complex “meal preparation.”

  • An extensive library of software
  • Evaluate applications without investing hours of your time
  • Start using them in production before you have the hardware

    Nice stuff packed in the giveaway. I would love to win this. My tweet @WPThemeinfo

    Good idea with the comments way of picking a winner. I didn’t know before if I just had to vote or submit something and vote to win.

    Would love to win any of these prizes but Backup Buddy looks the best.

      All people had to do was join the site for a chance to win stuff. But that apparently wasn’t working out. It’s better to target those that want to win stuff anyways so this works.

      • brycejacobson

        I run giveaways on my site as well and probably only get a 50-75% response rate so you are doing the right thing.

        • jaredwilli

          Well that’s good to know, thanks :)

    What’s up with people not claiming their prizes? If you don’t want/need the prize just send a thank you mail to Jared and let him know that you don’t need the prize so it can go to someone that needs it.

    Anyway, thanks for all the great giveaways Jared and thanks to all the sponsors offering them.

    I haven’t had the chance to use any theme from UpThemes yet, so I would love to win one to try it out.

    • jaredwilli

      I was surprised that it happened with more than one person too. All I can think is that they don’t check email, or my email was marked as spam, idk.

    A free Backup Buddy Licence for a comment? I’ll be lucky ;-)

    Have to move a WP-site and would love to give backup buddy a try for its database size makes it quite complicated to do so.

  8. CathyWhyDoWeBlog

    I’m most interested int the free backup buddy license; I’m always on the look out for free themes to explore for clients. I’m not sure about the virtualization product – but I’d coma back to claim it

  9. K.Adam White

    backup buddy would have saved me in a major way last year! Fingers are crossed, and thanks for alerting me to the plugin either way!

      It seems to be a popular thing to win judging by the comments. I personally would love to win the Jumpbox, but I can’t win anything here.

      Btw, I think I met you at a BostonWP meetup before, maybe?
      I’m about to leave to go to the one that’s tonight too.

    Well, I think I can manage to post a comment. Very cool.

  12. Angela

    • jaredwilli

  13. Angela

    Who are these people uninterested in winning things? I’m all over it. UpThemes looks great. Thanks for the opportunity.

  14. Andy
