FREE prizes and FREE Microsoft Office giveaway in the 09/09/09 follow me contest!

Here we are on September 9th of 2009, or 09/09/09, which happens only once every one-hundred years, so I thought we should have some fun with this.  Plus, as those of you who read my Blog know, I like to hold contests every now and then to reward those that follow my Blog consistently.  So today I thought I would combine the two for the 09/09/09 contest here in the Microsoft SMB Channel Community.  Here’s the deal for today’s contest:

As you may know, the community I run has several components, each providing a set of information to the Community:

For today’s contest, we will be focusing on the Twitter Feed component and here’s how it will work:

Prizes:  Every 9th new follower (9th only seemed appropriate on 09/09/09) I get today on my Twitter Feed will win a prize (until 909 total followers is reached).  I have a variety of prizes and the selection will be random on which prize you get.  I have things like hats, shirts, Starbucks cards, mousepads, and even two (2) copies of Microsoft Office Professional 2007 available as prizes. 

So what are you waiting for?  Sign up to follow me on my Twitter Feed today for your chance to win!

Again, this contest is to say, “Thank you,” for being a part of the Microsoft SMB Channel Community and to help raise awareness of the various components of the Community that you can use and leverage to help you build your business, servicing the needs of your clients with Microsoft technology today and moving forward.

By the way, should I send out a separate contest Tweet tonight to all of my followers with a special offer as a thank you for following me by the end of the day to see who is among the first to reply?  Hmmmmm…  Something for me to think about. 

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
