    Hello,

    I'm the owner of http://echowebhq.com/ (EchoWeb Network) and recently I was thinking of holding a contest as a way to attract publicity for my site.

    Anyway, I talked to my host (HostRocket.com) and they are willing to provide me with 3 free, web hosting accounts. Since, my network gets over 150,000 exposures/month, I can also spend about 100,000 button exposures on the winners.

    Anyway, the question is: What kind of a contest could I hold which could attract a couple of hundreds applicants?

    Basically, I want to have 3 winners:

    1st Place:
    50,000 button exposures
    5 months of free web hosting (200 megs, 10 GIGS)

    2nd Place:
    25,000 button exposures
    3 months of free web hosting (100 megs, 8 GIGS)

    3rd Place:
    10,000 button exposures
    3 months of free web hosting (50 megs, 4 GIGS)

    So... any ideas?

    Boris
    p.s. What would be the best way to promote this contest?

    Well, you could always try site/template design contests, article/tutorial submission contests (based on QUALITY not QUANTITY!), or a contest for programming/designing new web tools.

    You have a good, expanding network. I'm sure you (or your visitors!) will think of something great to hold a contest for!

    Good luck,

    hi,
    i would suggest that whatever contest you share should be much easier like playing games b'cos the motive of this contest is get public attraction. you can put cross word, puzzles,riddles and some iq question.
