Promote Your Guest Post Using HIGH CTR Banners

From last some days, I was thinking how one can promote his/her guest post entry to earn more points and that too free. I decided there is nothing better than asking your own visitors. So, I created two HIGH CTR banners which you can easily edit to add your gravatar and link it to your guest post here. You can easily put these banners on your blog to promote your guest post.

To edit these banners, just open it in paint and put your gravatar in place of the white box. Make sure you save it in the same image format (.png) otherwise the quality will go bad.

1. 250 x 250 Banner (Recommended)

Grab your gravatar and place it on the white box. Make sure it should be of  80×80 px. size so that it covers the space completely.

By the way, the author box that appears below your guest post on this blog shows the gravatar of the same size. So you can just save it your computer and place it there.


2. 468 x 60 Banner

In this banner, you have to place a 40×40 px. size gravatar. Just resize your gravatar which you can get from the trick mentioned above.

This will REALLY help you to increase your points and be the leader in this contest. In case you want my help then just contact me using the form.

There is NO Mandatory Task, but…

… now you get points for adding the sponsors code. Yes, for adding the sponsors code you will earn points just like any other way to earn points in this contest. For adding the sponsors code inside a new post in your main blog, you will get 1500 points. I think it’s a great way to make a lead in the contest 😉

That’s it in this update for the contest. Don’t forget to READ the main contest post for new guidelines and other info. In case you have any questions then don’t hesitate to ask me below or by sending me an email using the contact form. The contest is going to heat up in few days as I step-out to market it. Just wanted to warn you by saying this 😉

Seems like a really great idea for guest posts, nice job innovating on a classic technique.

Hey, this is one of the most creative banner I had yet to see any damn good blogging contest. I mean it is not just good for promoting your own guest post but also put’s a link back to your blog, damn… that’s a good idea.
It makes me want to join…
