Win a free iPad during National Small Business Week

I’m doing something just a tad kooky for National Small Business Week – May 16-20 (US) and I think you’ll find it very educational and kind of fun.

First off I’m giving away a free iPad each day during the week, that’s one a day for five days.

Now, here’s what I have planned: Starting on May 16th and continuing on each day through May 20th I will be posting five guest blog posts from five awesome bloggers each day. (Come back to starting on Monday and each day the week to find the new content.)

These posts will be from folks you know and love like Copyblogger’s Brian Clark, Escape from Cubicle Nation’s Pam Slim, Palo Alto Software Founder Tim Berry, SNAP Selling’s Jill Konrath, The Go-Giver’s Bob Burg, Marketing Prof’s Ann Handley, Hubspot’s Brian Halligan, New Rules of PR and Marketing’s David Meerman Scott, Chris Brogan, and SmallBizTrends Anita Campbell.

Twenty five guest post in all with five per day all around the topics listed below:

  • Monday May 16 – What is a Marketing Strategy and How Do I Get One?
  • Tuesday May 17 – Okay, I’m Creating Content How Do I Get Someone to Read
  • Wednesday May 18 – I Have a Web Site, What Else Should I be Doing Online?
  • Thursday May 19 – How Do I Get More Leads in the Top of the Funnel?
  • Friday May 20 – I Hate Selling, So Now How Do I Convert Leads?

But here’s the catch!

Each day’s blog posts will appear without identifying who wrote it. That’s right you’ll get to read five educational posts on a single topic, but you won’t know which of my superstar guests wrote the post.

The trick is that each day I’ll have a form that allows you to match the guest post with the guest writer. And each day I will randomly pick one winner from all the correct guesses to win an iPad.

So all you need to do is read the posts from each day and submit your guesses on the form provided to enter to win an iPad. (Everyone that completes this step will also be offered a marketing audit valued at $300). We’ll announce both the winner and who wrote what at the end of each day. You can check back each day to review a new set of posts.

In addition, I’ll be hosting a free live session:
