Ring in 2011 - December 2011 InfoBarrel Contest
Rules & How to Win
Like last month, there will no longer be the standard Vacation or Holiday articles to receive the extra 5% revenue share, instead, submit an article to be featured from our January Editorial Calendar and receive 1% for each article that fits into our 62 requested articles (to a maximum of 5%). Not only will you get the additional revenue share, you have a much higher chance of having an article featured on the front page of InfoBarrel.
Also, any article you write this month, regardless of the topic, will be given a point total towards the monthly contest. The points are based off the number of words in your article. If at the end of the month your point total is above 20 you will receive another bonus of 5% on your ad share. If your total is above 30 points, you will receive an additional 5% bonus, for a total bonus of 10% (5% from being over 20 points and 5% from being over 30 points). This point bonus is separate from your topic bonus, so if you complete all the tasks in this contest, you will receive a total bonus of 15% to your ad share for the month of January 2012.
The writer with the highest point total will get a $100US gift certificate to Amazon, second place will get a $50US Amazon gift certificate and third place get a $25US Amazon gift certificate.
After you have completed your articles we ask that you submit them via our submission form. We will then validate that they did indeed meet the criteria of the subject at hand.
